Hogan, Eagle Point hold off Phoenix

PHOENIX — Kierssa Hogan hit four of Eagle Point’s eight 3-pointers and the Eagles held off a late Phoenix charge to pull off a 38-33 nonleague win Tuesday at Phoenix High School.

The Pirates rallied to within three points with about three minutes to go but could get no closer, as Eagle Point improved to 2-0.

“We definitely had opportunities to come back,” Phoenix coach Chelsea Winner said. “Even though they jumped out the game was pretty close the entire time. It was a fast-paced, physical game.”

Hogan scored 14 points and Nicole Lawler nine to lead Eagle Point, which led 18-17 at halftime and 31-25 through three quarters. Andrea Flores added six points and seven rebounds and Alyssa Swanson four points and five boards.

Phoenix (2-1) outscored Eagle Point 15-0 at the free throw line but couldn’t overcome the Eagles’ dominance on the offensive glass — Eagle Point had 22 offensive rebounds.

Maggie Carrillo had 12 points, Delani Parent nine points and 12 rebounds and Josie Bolstad 14 rebounds and a block for Phoenix, which did not hit a 3.

“The key for (the Eagles) was their offensive rebounds and their 3s in that third quarter,” Winner said. “They came out and hit four 3-pointers in the third quarter. That right there was the dagger.”

EAGLE POINT (38): Shelton 0, Hogan 14, Monroe 0, Flores 6, Amidei 3, Burgess 2, Swanson 4, Lawler 9, Sather 0. Totals: 15 0-2 38.

PHOENIX (33): Carrillo 12, Villasenor 2, Christensen 4, Hernandez 0, Skaff 0, Bolstad 4, Tellez 0, Flores 0, Badillo 2, Parent 9. Totals: 9 15-20 33.
