Coast Union girls team gets ‘huge win’ over Morro Bay

The Tribune (SLO) - - The Cambrian - BY JOHN FITZRANDOL­PH

The Coast Union High School girls bas­ket­ball team con­tin­ued its strong sea­son with an upset of Morro Bay with a 44-42 win Dec. 19.

“I’m not sure when the last time was that we beat Morro Bay,” head coach Keith Stow­ers said. “But it was a huge win for Coast Union!”

The score was tied, 40-40, when Bella Raethke stepped to the line and made a pair of free throws to seal the win. Kaylee Fer­gu­son had 12 points and 11 re­bounds. Karis Law­son con­trib­uted 11 points and 12 re­bounds. El­lie Kennedy scored nine points and hauled in nine re­bounds.

It helps the con­fi­dence of the team, Stow­ers added, “know­ing we can play bet­ter and still win a game that we fought hard to win.”

The Bron­cos boys bas­ket­ball team was de­feated 54-17 in its road game against Morro Bay Pi­rates on Dec. 19. Bron­cos head coach Gehrig Knif­fen said: “It was a tough loss. We just didn’t play our best bas­ket­ball, but I think we’re still mov­ing in the right di­rec­tion.”

Coast (5-5 and 2-1 in the Coast Val­ley League) lost its first CVL game on Dec. 14; Coastal Chris­tian shaded the Bron­cos 4340. For­rest John­son led the team with 14 points in that game.

The next boys’ home game is Jan. 7 vs. Or­cutt Academy (6:30 p.m.); the girls next home game is Jan. 8 against Cuyama Val­ley (5 p.m.).
