PREP SPORTS WRAP: National power, Oregon City, hands Beamer girls first loss

The upstart Todd Beamer girls basketball team got a taste of a big-time, national powerhouse Thursday night. The Oregon City Pioneers came to Federal Way with one of the best basketball résumés in the nation and walked away with the 67-54 victory.

The Pioneers (6-0) are ranked 14th in the nation by USA Today and were named the national champions three years in the row in the late 1990s. They have won 11 Oregon state titles in the last 20 years.

Thursday's loss was the first of the season for the Titans (7-1), but should act as a great learning experience for the extremely young team.

Oregon City rolled out to a 26-11 lead early in the second quarter and were never really threatened by Beamer.

The Titans were led by 13 points each by junior Megan Huff and freshman Nia Alexander. Fellow ninth-grader, Quinessa Caylao-Do, chipped in 12 points for Beamer.

Oregon City was led by Jo Paine, who is one of three Division-I recruits on the roster. Paine, who will play at Santa Clara, finished with 24 points.

Decatur — The Gators (0-7 overall) remained winless with a 34-9 loss to Peninsula Thursday night in Gig Harbor. Stephanie Maxwell led Decatur in scoring again with six points.

Federal Way — The second-ranked Eagles (9-0 overall, 7-0 SPSL South) swept a pair of games in Vancouver Wednesday and Thursday. Federal Way snuck by Union, 62-59, and then beat Evergreen the next night, 83-49.

Against Union, the Eagles overcame a one-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to get the win. D'Londo Tucker finished with 18 points, Adrian Davis had 13 and Malik Montoya chipped in 12.

Against Evergreen, six Eagles finished in double figures, helping Federal Way pull out to a 32-2 lead after the first quarter. Montoya finished with 17, Brayon Blake had 16, Tucker finished with 15, Davis had 13 and Viont'e Davis and DeeShawn Tucker chipped in 10 points apiece.

Decatur — The Gators evened up their record in the SPSL 3A Division with a 68-54 win over Peninsula Thursday in Federal Way. Decatur (3-3 overall, 1-1 SPSL 3A) got huge games from the trio of Jason Young, Kevin Locascio and Glen Jackson. The threesome combined to score 62 of the Gators' 66 points against Peninsula.

Young finished with 25 points, Locascio had 21 and Jackson chipped in 16 points. Decatur jumped out to a 59-21 lead after the third quarter. The Seahawks tallied 33 points in the fourth quarter to make the final score look a little closer.
