Grizzlies' press breaks Klickitat in rout at Helix Christmas tournament

HELIX — The Grizzlies’ defense broke the Klickitat offense in the second quarter, and the short-handed Helix girls won the game, 53-30, at their own Christmas Tournament here Tuesday.

"We came out and pressed in the second quarter and got quite a few steals and easy baskets," Grizzlies coach Dean Fouquette said.

The Vandals held an 11-10 lead after the first quarter, but Helix outscored them 20-5 in the second eight minutes to hold the 30-16 halftime edge. The Grizzlies shut Klickitat out in the third quarter.

"Kylee Rogers had a good game for us," Fouquette said of her 23 points. "Addie Terjeson got us into our offense (with 13 points), and I thought they played really patient and really smart. And that’s what we’ll have to do now, down two starters."

Helix lost Brittany Smith for the season with a torn ACL, and Megan Schroeder for three weeks with a broken nose, two weekends ago at the Wallowa tournament.

"We’ll have to stay out of foul trouble and take care of the ball," Fouquette said of his small roster. "I think they saw that today."

Chyanne Hack was the third Grizzly in double figures, scoring 10 points.

Klickitat’s Samantha Brewer led the Vandals with 10 points.

Helix plays Waitsburg-Prescott in the final round of the tournament today at 4:30 p.m.
