PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Timberlake steals away from Sandpoint

| December 4, 2020 1:10 AM

SANDPOINT — Taryn Soumas, the 2019-20 state 3A Girls Player of the Year, converted on a couple of steals late in the first quarter, then the Tigers did rest on Thursday at Les Rogers Court in Sandpoint.

With the game tied 8-8 after the first quarter, Timberlake opened the second quarter on a 16-2 run on the way to a 42-28 win over Sandpoint.

“With state championship teams like that, you’ve got to play 32 minutes,” Sandpoint coach Will Love said. “And you can’t have any letdowns because they’re the kind of kids that feast off of that. As soon as they see a little opportunity, they’re going to take it.”

Brooke Jessen had 13 points and Blayre Jeffs had eight points and five rebounds for Timberlake (4-1), which beat Sandpoint 40-25 on Nov. 19 in Spirit Lake. Soumas finished with 12 points for Timberlake, which plays at Lake City tonight at 7.

Hattie Larson scored eight points for Sandpoint (0-3), which travels to Lewiston on Saturday.

“They’ve got a lot of experience, so we needed to have a game where we didn’t turn the basketball over as much as we did,” said Love, whose team had 20 turnovers on the night. “I thought that was something that really hurt us in the first half.”
