Senior guard Sammi Love added 11 points including three triples with three deflections. Junior forward Ellie Hill added nine points, including 4-for-4 at the charity stripe, with four rebounds.
Senior post McKinly Faux had a pair of 3-pointers with three boards, three blocks and five deflections. Senior post Kaleigh Freeman had six points as well with four boards, two steals and a pair of blocks.
Senior guard Hadlie Warren scored four points with six assists and two steals, while senior post Malia Havea made three assists and three steals.
“It was a great way to start the season for us against a really scrappy and well-coached Mountain Ridge team,” said Coach Sean Seastrand. “I was mostly proud of how well our team played together. They shared the ball on offense and communicated so well on defense.
“There was lots of energy from the bench, and it was just a really fun game to coach,” he added. “We’ll look for some ways to get better and enjoy Thanksgiving break next week and come back ready for our next game versus Herriman.”
That road game is scheduled for Nov. 30 at 7 p.m.
