The Lumberjills jumped to a big first quarter lead and nearly gave it away in a Greater St. Helens League girls basketball game at the Lumberdome on Thursday night.

Miranda Lomax led the Jills with 15 points, even as the Spudders applied a box-and-one defense to her all night. Makayla Jenkins was also in double figures, adding 10.

Kelli Krsul led all scorers with 20 points for the visiting Spudders. Grace Goode added 13 in the loss.

RAL led 13-0 early in the first quarter, but, to coach Jan Karnoski’s frustration, took their foot off the gas and let the struggling Spudders back in it.

Ridgefield outscored RAL 17-13 in the second quarter, turning a once-comfortable lead into a more stressful situation. To RAL’s credit, though, it played even with the Spudders the rest of the way, ultimately walking off of Joe Moses Court with its second league win.

“It was a hard-fought battle,” Karnoski said.
