At Skyline, four players finished with double-figure scoring for the Skyline High School girls basketball team in a nonconference win over Ridgevue.

Skyline head coach Ty Keck said defense was the focus of Friday’s practice after Thursday’s 65-50 loss at Malad. The Warhawks had seven made field goals to Skyline’s 32, and Skyline’s Sophie Anderson had a season high 19 points.

“She had 15 of her points in the first half,” Keck said. “She made great moves. They didn’t have an answer for her early on.”

Mattie Olson had 16 points, Macy Olson had 13 and Annalise Cheret added 11 for Skyline (6-7), which is off until a Jan. 5 game at Rigby.

TWIN FALLS 59, HILLCREST 47: At Twin Falls, a 21-point second quarter set the tone for No. 1 ranked Twin Falls as Hillcrest fell in its final game of 2018.

After ending the first quarter tied at 11-11, the Bruins outscored the Knights 21-14 in the second quarter in what Hillcrest coach Dave Austin called ‘a very physical ball game.’

“We gave up way too many rebounds in that quarter where they got second chance opportunities,” Austin said. “They scored just about every time on those second chance shots.”

Kyle Austin had 18 points while Dakota Yorgesen added six for Hillcrest (4-4), which is off until a Jan. 2 home game versus Rigby.

MACKAY 51, WATERSPRINGS 46: At Mackay, the Miners edged Watersprings in a conference game to conclude 2018.

Mackay coach Kelvin Krosch said the Warriors led the entire game except for the last four minutes. Watersprings was up 31-19 at halftime and 36-30 after three before the Miners outscored the Warriors 21-9 in the fourth quarter.

“They went into a stall tactic for most of the game,” Krosch said about Watersprings. “They ran their offense and their set plays pretty well. We’ve got a target on our back and we’ve got a couple teams gunning for us. That showed tonight.”

Landon Bowman had a game-high 24 points while Parker Simmons added eight for Watersprings (7-2, 4-2), which is off until a Jan. 3 home game versus North Gem.

Chase Green had 18 points and Jacoda Whitworth added 10 for Mackay (8-2, 5-0), which is off until a Jan. 10 game at Watersprings.
