Crane Mustangs girls cemented their league championship on Thursday, Feb. 7, defeating the Jordan Valley Lady Mustangs 42-27. Crane ended their regular season with a 10-0 league record, 19-4 overall. This record includes a forfeit of their scheduled game at Huntington due to an injury and lack of players on the Locomotives’ team.
The Crane girls started out slow over Jordan Valley, up only 16-13 at the half. Turnovers and no offensive rebounding seemed to be the problem in the first two periods for Crane.
Taking the court after the break, Crane turned up their play, and put together a great third quarter, scoring 16 points. Defensively, they held Jordan Valley to only one field goal for that period.
The fourth quarter played out evenly between the two teams, and Crane put the win in their book for first place in league.
Morgan Corrigan led Crane with 16 points and eight rebounds. Paige Landon added 12 points, Glennie Milburn eight and Hannah Steeves six. Milburn also grabbed six boards in the win, and Hannah Maupin notched six steals for Crane.
Next up for Crane is the 1A-8 High Desert League Tournament to be held Feb. 14-16 in John Day. Crane will play Spray in a first-round game on Friday, Feb. 15.
