SUNNYSIDE - DeSales' girls basketball team took a trip away from league play and Walla Walla Tuesday, but it was anything but a vacation for the Irish, who fell 45-29 at Sunnyside Christian.

DeSales (11-4, 7-1) failed to score in the opening frame, which dug the Irish an 11-0 hole they could never get out of.

"There are no excuses," said DeSales head coach Tim Duncan. "There just aren't a whole lot of nights that you can go scoreless in the first quarter and get a win. It wasn't going to happen tonight."

DeSales was hurt by a 36-24 Sunnyside Christian rebounding edge. The Irish were paced by seven points from Ali Zander.

"We just need to put that game behind us and focus on what we have coming up," Duncan said. "This was a rough start. We picked it up, but we still cannot afford to have quarters like that."

Up next for DeSales is a trip to Southeast 2B League foe Asotin on Friday.
