After tough night offensively, Trojans face a slew of difficult opponents in the coming games

MOUNT ANGEL, Ore.—It was another tough night offensively for the Kennedy girls basketball team on Thursday, Dec. 9. The Trojans welcomed the Western Christian Pioneers to their home court and fell after 32 minutes of play. Western Christian ran away with the game 55-15.

Kennedy was unable to get much going offensively on the night, going scoreless through the first quarter and only mustering six points by the end of the first half. The low scoring output marked the third straight game the Trojans were unable to break 20 points, previously against Portland Adventist Academy (1-3) and Knappa (1-2).

Western Christian was by far the best opponent Kennedy has faced thus far, improving to 5-1 on the season and 1-0 in the Tri-River Conference (TRC).

It doesn't get any easier for the Trojans in the immediate future. They next face off against 3A Willamina (4-0) on Friday, Dec. 10; from there the team faces off against 3A Catlin Gabel (0-2) and the red-hot Colton Vikings (4-0).

Kennedy (1-3) has its work cut out for it this season. Last year's squad went 10-4 but graduated a strong core of four seniors from a roster of six.
