Andrus Front copy

The 12-seed CORE Butte Lynx may still not know what hit them on Tuesday night in Mt. Shasta. The five-seed Lady Bears held the Lynx scoreless in the first quarter, and allowed only two points in the first half, on the way to a 55-13 victory.

Mt. Shasta (15-11) heads to number-four Quincy on Thursday for a NSCIF D-V Quarterfinal game. Four-seed Quincy (21-4) defeated Los Molinos (7-14) on Tuesday 59-23.

The Bears had some good looks at the basket in the first three and a half minutes against the Lynx (11-11), but couldn’t get a shot to fall. Meanwhile, the Lynx hit the backboard a couple of times. Abby Manley broke the ice with a freebie, and Mt. Shasta went on to score 13 points in the last 4:34 of the quarter. After Emily Andrus dropped in a free throw, Ashley Cain put back a rebound, 4-0. Andrus dished to Kaycee Sarti for a hoop, and Madeline Moyer followed with a free throw and then a bucket, 9-0. A pair of throws from Andrus and a basket made it 13-0 at the end of the quarter.

CORE Butte finally scored with 3:44 to play in the half, 21-2. Cain dropped in a deuce and Andrus added a free throw to make it 24-2 at the intermission. (more…)
