ASOTIN - Asotin jumped out to an 18-2 first-quarter lead and Dayton never recovered in a 73-40 Southeast B district girls basketball loss here Wednesday.

The Bulldogs, now 4-17, travel to Colfax for a loser-out game against DeSales, with a 1:30 p.m. start on Saturday.

The Bulldogs cut the Panthers' lead to 11 points in the second quarter, but fell behind by 19 points, 39-20, at halftime.

Nicole Lockard and Nicole Lambert led the Bulldogs with 11 points each, and Katie Varney scored 10 points and ripped off 10 rebounds. Varney also had a game-high seven steals

Dayton's Kayla Dedloff scored seven points and snared a game-high 13 rebounds.

Asotin's Shelby Barnes led all scorers with 21 points, and she led the Panthers with five steals.

Jalisa Jose scored 11 points for Asotin and led the team with seven rebounds.

"I guess we didn't come out ready to play," Dayton coach Scott Hudson said. "We got down 18-2 in the first quarter, and you can't do that against a good team like Asotin.

"We came back in the second quarter, but we let it get away again," he said. "It was just too much for us to overcome.

"Maybe we had a case of jitters for the first game at the district playoffs," Hudson said. "I hope we can regroup and be ready to play on Saturday."
