The Bear River girls basketball team put together a solid defensive performance Thursday, knocking off Woodland, 54-5, in the opening round of the Casa Roble Tournament.
Bear River received help from all of its players as everyone contributed minutes on the court.
The Lady Bruins were led by senior Teryn Rath, who earned a double-double with a team-high 10 points to go with 11 boards. Senior Jenn Alberts tossed in nine points and Kaitlyn Reina chipped in eight, grabbing a team-high 14 rebounds.
The game was put out of reach quickly as the Lady Bruins built a 17-0 midway through the first quarter. The squad’s relentless defense kept Woodland out of sync and off the scoreboard the entire first half.
