MERLIN — Karlee Touey and Sydney Moore both scored 16 points and North Valley handed South Umpqua a 48-29 loss on Tuesday in a nonleague girls basketball game.

The Class 4A Knights (8-5) wrapped up the win by outscoring the 3A Lancers 12-3 in the third quarter.

Brooklyn McCaughan led South Umpqua (2-5) with 11 points and Tatum Kelley added nine.

"We played together," S.U. first-year coach Mia Cesena said. "Their press forced a lot of turnovers in the third quarter. We had a lot of good shots, but they just weren't going in."

The Lancers are scheduled to host 1A Camas Valley Thursday in a nonleague contest.
