The Eureka girls continued their impressive start to the new season with a dominating performance against an over-matched River Valley team at the Placer tournament on Thursday night.

McKenna Beach scored a game-high 18 points, including four 3-pointers, as Eureka won 73-19 and improved to 3-1 on the young season.

“It was great team basketball,” Eureka assistant coach Jess Genaro said. “We ran the floor really well and stayed out of foul trouble. I think it was our most solid game yet.”

Amaya Gee also had a big game and chipped in 11 points as all 11 Eureka players scored.

The Loggers outscored their opponents 20-0 in the opening quarter and led by 36 at halftime.

Ellie Pesch and Kira Morris each scored eight in the win, while Moriah Bowles added six.

The Loggers will continue tourney play on Friday at 5 p.m.
