SUNNYSIDE — A two-point second quarter put the DeSales Irish in a hole they couldn’t overcome Tuesday as they fell, 51-38, to undefeated Sunnyside Christian.

The Irish jumped out to a 14-10 first-quarter lead, but were outscored 17-2 in the second period and took an 11-point deficit into the half.

“We just didn’t play well in that second quarter,” Irish coach Tim Duncan said. “We couldn’t execute because we couldn’t run the offense. We didn’t get any good looks.”

The Irish shaved a point off the Sunnyside lead in the third period to trail by 10 going into the fourth.

DeSales made a run in the fourth, cutting the lead to seven for three possessions, but couldn’t get any closer.

“Sunnyside Christian was a really good team that was ranked No. 2 for their classification (Class 1B),” Duncan said.

Sunnyside hit six from downtown for 18 points, while DeSales scored six points from beyond the 3-point arc.

Abby Crowley led DeSales with 12 points and Allison Wujek grabbed a team-high seven rebounds.

DeSales (13-4 overall, 7-1 Southeast 2B) hosts Waitsburg-Prescott Friday in Breast Cancer Awareness night at 6 p.m. Fans are encouraged to wear pink and support the cause.
