COLTON, Wash. — The Touchet Indians boys basketball were downed by the Colton Wildcats here Saturday night in a Class 1B matchup by a score of 53-42.

The halftime score was 23 apiece. The Wildcats ran away with the game in third quarter, with a 19-6 scoring run.

"We came out real flat in the third quarter, scored only six points," Touchet coach Tim McKeown said. "Then we were playing catch-up the entire rest of the second half and we couldn’t overcome them. I thought we settled for a lot of outside shots. We could have been passing the ball inside more."

The Indians were outrebounded 49-27.

"Our kids thought that we should have got a lot of the over the back calls," McKeown said. "But it isn’t a foul if the referee doesn’t call it. So you’ve got to learn to just keep playing."

The total fouls count was Touchet 16, Colton 10.

Marshall Byerley had the most complete game for the Indians with eight points, six rebounds and six assists in the loss.

"Marshall had a pretty good game," McKeown said. "But not enough of the other kids stepped up and played big for us."

Matt Kates was leading scorer for the Indians with 12 points.

The loss drops the Indians to 3-4 in conference with two league match-ups remaining this weekend.

"If we can win two more then we can improve upon our third seeding in the conference," McKeown said. "We would be in good shape for districts."

The Indians play Friday at home against Tri-City Prep at 7:30 p.m.
