The Irrigon girls basketball team went to the fourth quarter trailing the Weston-McEwen TigerScots 46-34 and knew they needed to change things up to get a win.

The Knights pulled out a full-court pressure defense which threw the TigerScots off instantly and swung the game in the Knights’ favor as Irrigon outscored Weston-McEwen 20-6 in the final frame to steal a 54-52 victory at the Ione Basketball Bonanza on Friday.

“We really struggled against their press,” Weston-McEwen coach Mike Giusti said. “They (Irrigon) sped us up and we tried to hurry and we weren’t sure of where to go because we haven’t had much time to work on that yet.”

Jada Burns scored 17 to lead the Knights (2-0) and following her were Taylor Davis with 10 and Alyia Munoz with eight. For the TigerScots (0-2) Katie Vescio led with 17 points and Chelsea Quaempts had 14.

Both teams continue play in Ione on Saturday with Weston-McEwen playing Ione at 1 p.m. and Irrigon plays Enterprise.
