Creswell, the #3 Team out of the PacWest Conference with a 14-13 record beat Warrenton earlier this week in the first round of playoffs to earn the right to be part of this Elite 8 State Tournament.

2nd Quarter: VC comes out hot, fast and agressive going on an 11 point run (16 straight going back 7 min., into the first qtr.) before Creswell is able to score. VC shuts down Creswell in this quarter and goes into the locker room with a 11 point lead. 26-15. Halftime Stats: VC has 21 boards, 8 TO's and shooting 10-27 from the floor.

VC Coach John Innes commented on the second quarter, when the Valiants took the upper hand, observing "We settled down. Some of our girls played here last year, some didn't. Once we settled into our zone, which forces teams to shoot over it, they missed a couple of shots, and it rattled their confidence a little."

Creswell turned the tide late, and Coach Innes noted "In the second half, we hung on; the momentum definitely swung." VC's advantage at the line, though not as great as it could have been, due to 16 of 28 shooting, still outdistanced Creswell's 4-6. Coach Innes noted "Our size forces teams to make some choices. Either give up som e shots, or take some fouls."

Coach Innes looked forward to Friday, noting "We played both Burns and Myrtle Point last year, so we know their style. We will watch this game closely, and are looking forward to getting some rest. We have a couple girls that are playing sick, and a post with sore ribs. A day's rest will help."
