PASCO — DeSales dug themselves a first half hole that it could get out of here in Southeast 2B girls basketball action Saturday. The Irish connected on only 4-of-27 shots from the field and trailed Tri-Cities Prep 29-13 at intermission.

The Irish couldn’t come all the way back in the second half as the Jaguars hung on for a 41-37 win.

“They hit a bunch of 3’s in the first half,” Irish coach Tim Duncan said. “We kept setting back. Our games have been routs, and we didn’t come ready to play.”

The Irish rode Teresa Acock’s five 3-pointers in the second half to fight back and out score the Jaguars 24-12 over the last 16 minutes, but it wasn’t enough as the Irish drop to 5-1 in league play.

“We had a good response,” Duncan said of the Irish second half. “We played with a sense of urgency.”

Acock led all scorers with 25 points.

“She was the only one to hit a perimeter shot,” Duncan added. “We found her at the right time and she is a capable shooter.”

Allison Wujek grabbed 10 boards to lead the Irish on the glass.

Victoria Vargas scored 22 to lead the Jaguars to the victory.

On Friday, the Irish jumped out to a 23-2 lead after the first quarter and Waitsburg-Prescott had no response as DeSales scored a 50-28 win. Wujek led the way with 12, Emily Baumgart and Hannah Leahy chipped in nine each for the Irish. Loegan Harshman, Hannah Grant and Heidi Miller each had six points to lead W-P.
