IRRIGON — Irrigon seniors Eric Carillo and Johnny Phillips and junior Keith Fleming all netted 15 points apiece on Thursday to down the Stanfield Tigers 74-49, keeping the Knights unbeaten on the season.

“We had a really good first half, played good defense,” head coach Davie Salas said.

But after the break, Stanfield made some adjustments and opened with a 23-point performance in the third quarter.

Irrigon was able to maintain its lead and hold off the Tigers (6-6) to remain a perfect 9-0 on the season.

Leading Stanfield was senior Brody Woods with 12 points.
