“We tied it up in the beginning of the third,” RHS coach Dane Tornell said. “It was pretty exciting there for a little bit.”

Krebs scored 13 points for Corvallis (2-1) and Elka Prechel had 11.

Corvallis regained the lead with the help of four 3-pointers in the third quarter.
The Tribe started playing better in the fourth quarter, but was unable to come back.
“There were a lot of tears in the locker room today,” Tornell said.
Roseburg will play at Willamette on Tuesday.
