WALLA WALLA - It was a big night for DeSales at home Thursday as the Irish girls basketball team rolled to a 58-17 win over Walla Walla Valley Academy.

The Irish were paced by a solid defense and 15 points by Erin Giusti.

"Our defense lead to offense for us," said DeSales head coach Tim Duncan. "We locked down, and that was the difference for us."

The Irish also forced 28 turnovers.

"They just out defended us," said WWVA coach Monty Buell. "We hung with them for a quarter, but then it kind of fell apart."

The Bulldogs took control of the game in the second quarter with a shut out frame.

"We really stepped things up after the first," Duncan said. "We locked them down."

Up next for WWVA is Liberty Christian on the 25th, while DeSales is slated for Tri-Cities Prep on the 22nd.
