ST. JOHN, Wash. — The Touchet High School girls’ basketball team had four players foul out en route to a 62-36 loss to St. John-Endicott Saturday night in a Southeast 1B matchup.

Touchet led 26-25 at the half, but wasn’t able to overcome foul trouble as Cierra Jo McKeown, Jennifer Aceves, Abby Grudzinski and Harlie Schaeffer left the game early.

“It would have been a different outcome if we hadn’t gotten into foul trouble in the second half,” Indian coach Malissa McKeown said, “and if we had played like we did in the first half.”

Touchet had a better finish Friday at home in a 43-30 win over Garfield-Palouse.

Cierra Jo McKeown led the team Friday with 20 points, 12 boards, four assists and six steals.

Touchet (3-4 overall, 2-3 league) hosts Helix at 6 p.m. Tuesday.
