The Cubs appear to be headed in the right direction.

The South Fork girls split a pair of games on the basketball court this week, falling 62-43 to Laytonville on Monday, before topping Potter Valley 51-13 on Tuesday.

Monday’s loss was the second this season to a very good Laytonville team, but the Cubs turned in a far better performance this time around, and were able to carry that over into Tuesday’s win.

“We played way better than last time,” South Fork head coach Chris Contreras said, adding that his players “gave great effort and hustle all night.”

Kaylei Valk continued her impressive start to the season with a team-high 19 points in the loss, as the Cubs turned in a balanced team performance with eight different players scoring.

A couple of younger players helped get the Cubs off to a fast start on Tuesday, with early steals by Macy Yarbrough and Summer Contreras leading to quick scores.

The Cubs led by 12 after the opening quarter and never looked back, holding Potter Valley to single digits in scoring in all four quarters.

Valk again had a big game with 12 points, while Kaylee Cotter also had 12.

“Kaylei Valk had another steady game, just like she has been doing all year,” the head coach said. 

“It was a great team effort.”
Summer Contreras added nine points in the win, while Jade Johns had six.

The Cubs are now 2-2.
