LONGVIEW, Wash. — Walla Walla Community College coach Jeff Reinland was disappointed following his team’s second loss in as many days.

The Warriors (0-2) had as much as a 9-point lead over Centralia College in the first half but trailed, 32-31, at the break and wound up with a 68-59 loss to exit the Red Devil Classic’s consolation bracket.

“These teams that we played over here are just big and athletic and just hammered us inside,” Reinland said. “We just couldnt get anything going.”

Caleb Bravard led the Warriors with 19 points but he made just 6-of-19 from the field, including a 4-of-10 mark from beyond the arc.

As a team WWCC shot just 35 percent from the field while allowing the Trailblazers to make 49 percent of their trys.

“We’re not shooting the ball well and these teams are more athletic than we are,” Reinland said. “We’re not making shots and we’re just having trouble stopping them.”

Dyland Radliff had 11 points on three 3-pointers and two free throws. Case Rada added 17.

Mozeck and Miles Waggener each scored 18 points to lead the Trailblazers.

“We’re struggling it’s going to be a tough year,” Reinland said. “Athletically and energy-wise, we just don’t have it.”

WWCC opens its home slate Friday with the two-day Warrior Classic. The Warriors host Linfield College’s junior varsity Friday at 8 p.m. and Mt. Hood Community College Saturday at 8 p.m.
