ST. JOHN — Touchet grabbed a 12-8 lead here after one quarter in Southeast 2B girls basketball action.

That was the Indian highlight on this night as St. John-Endicott limited the Indians to 18 points the rest of the way and posted a 53-30 win.

“We didn’t come ready to play,” Touchet coach Missy McKeown said. “We shot very poorly and they shot 43 percent.”

Cierra Jo McKeown led the Indians with 17 points and Kristen Warner scored 10 and grabbed a team-high seven rebounds.

Emily Jones, with 12 points and 10 rebounds, led the Eagles to the win.

On Friday, the Indians got off to a fast start and Garfield-Palouse never recovered. Touchet came out of the chute to grab a 19-6 lead after one, and the Indians went on to defeat Gar-Pal 62-41.

McKeown led the way as she scored 28 points and pulled down a game-high 13 rebounds. Warner scored 14 and Rachel Miller added 12 as the Indians got three in double digits to earn the win and improve to 7-4 in the SE2B.

The Indians travel to Pomeroy Friday.
