ATHENA — Krystal Harris scored 13 points to lead Waitsburg-Prescott past the Weston-McEwen TigerScots, 39-32, in a non-league matchup here Tuesday.

The stories of the game were the 25 offensive rebounds and 39 total rebounds that the TigerScots gave up.

W-M was able to gather up just 24 rebounds total.

"We’ve been working on rebounding, we’re still working on it," W-M coach Amber Doremus said. "We have to get used to boxing out every time and make it our habit.

"We definitely could have done a better overall job on the boards by just getting into better rebounding position."

The top rebounders for W-P were Alyssa Hafen with nine boards and Genesis Pearson had eight rebounds.

Weston-McEwen led 14-12 after the first stanza.

The TigerScots didn’t manage to score in the second period and W-P took a 23-14 lead into halftime.

The 11-0 run by W-P in the second period was keyed by six W-P steals and 13 rebounds.

W-M rallied back early in the third period to make it 23-20, but the TigerScots got no closer.

W-P led at the end of the third period, 27-24.

The fourth-quarter run that sealed Weston-McEwen fate was orchestrated by W-P with five steals in three minutes.

The lead grew to 11 points for W-P during the timespan.

"We’ve got to learn to take care of the ball," Doremus said. "Give credit to them for all those steals, fastbreaks and buckets in that fourth-quarter run, but we could have prevented it by taking better care of the ball."

Top scorer for W-M was Tiffany Cain with eight points and eight rebounds.

Morgan Entze dropped in six points and Sidney Porter added five.

MaKayla Thompson had four points, four steals and four rebounds on the night.

Overall, the TigerScots had 10 steals and W-P had 18.

Weston-McEwen plays again Friday at Irrigon.

W-P travels to Garfield-Palouse Saturday.
