Thursday, December 23, 2021

Portland 47, Deering 44

A 14-0 run that started late in the third quarter was just enough to allow the Bulldogs (1-4) to hold off the Rams (1-4) at the Expo.

Portland never trailed and had leads of 15-6 after one quarter and 24-16 at halftime, but the Rams cut the deficit to 29-27 in the third quarter on a 3-pointer from Maya Gayle (15 points).

Portland’s run started with a 3-pointer from Eliza Stein, and the lead was up to 38-27 heading into the fourth.

After the margin grew to 43-27, Deering answered with a run of its own and closed to within two before Portland closed it out.

The Bulldogs were paced by Stein and Baleria Yugu with nine points apiece.

Gayle and Ella McGowan each had 15 points for the Rams.
