PASCO - Erin Giusti and Stephanie Ferrel combined to score 25 points and nine other DeSales players contributed between two and six points here Friday night as the Irish defeated Tri-Cities Prep 54-30 in a girls Southeast 2B District basketball opener for both schools.

Giusti finished with 13 points and Ferrel added 12 as DeSales improved to 3-0 going into a Saturday night league counter at Liberty Christian in Richland.

DeSales led 14-7 after one quarter, expanded its lead to 26-11 at halftime and put the game on ice by outscoring the Jaguars 17-8 in the third period.

"We need to shoot a little better," DeSales coach Tim Duncan said. "We didn't shoot very well from the perimeter. Other than that, I am real happy with the way we are playing defense."
