McKeown leads Indians to split

MOSES LAKE — It was a big weekend for Touchet’s Cierra Jo McKeown.

McKeown dropped 41 points in the Indians’ 57-56 win against Tri-Cities Prep on Friday and followed that with a 28-point effort in Touchets’ 57-50 loss to Moses Lake Christian on Saturday.

McKeown ran into foul trouble against Lions and fouled out with more than five minutes remaining.

“She had a really good night both nights,” Touchet coach Malissa McKeown said. “I think it would have been a different game if we would have had her.”

The Indians staged a dramatic comeback against Moses Lake Christian, as Touchet overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to tie the game heading into the fourth quarter. But the comeback fell short, as the Lions outscored Touchet 17-10 in the final frame.

“We had some mental breakdowns at the wrong times,” McKeown said. “But the girls put out a really good effort. It’s just hard to lose a game when you know you should have beat them.”
