YAKIMA - A scoreless second quarter ended up being the big difference as DeSales' girls dropped a non-league basketball game to Riverside Christian here Monday, 39-30.

The Irish trailed the Crusaders, 12-8, after the opening quarter, but Riverside Christian's 10-0 second period opened a 14-point margin DeSales wasn't able to close despite outscoring the Crusaders, 22-17, in the second half.

"We didn't play very well the whole first half," Irish coach Tim Duncan said. "We didn't compete hard. We competed harder in the first half, shot the ball a little better.

"The bottom line is, we didn't compete hard in the first half," he said. "We need to be a little more consistent."

DeSales, now 1-1, opens the Southeast 2B League season at home against Tri-Cities Prep at 6 p.m. Friday, and then hosts Liberty Christian at 5 p.m. Saturday.
