COLTON — Touchet’s boys were defeated by the host Wildcats, 55-47, here Saturday, a loss that dropped them to 4-9 in the Southeast 1B League and 7-10 overall.

On Friday, the Indians downed Lacrosse-Washtucna-Kahlotus, 60-57.

Ruben Butler scored a team-high 14 points for Touchet on Saturday.

“We played pretty good ball in the first half,” Touchet coach Tim McKeown said. “The third quarter is what hurt us. We went up 6-5 and then they had a spark. We just were never able to regain that back.

“There were times where we were able to make a play and then they would come back and put up a three or we would put them at the line,” McKeown said. “It was a phyiscal game and I don’t think we handled the physical aspect very well. It was a good game and Colton played well. My hat’s off to them.”

Vicente Flores paced Touchet on Friday with 19 points.

“It was a good game,” McKeown said. “Going into halftime, it was 26-28. The kids kind of settled down after that and kept chipping away at them. We just kept playing hard-nosed defense.”

The Indians host Liberty Christian on Tuesday.
