Lilli Taylor

Lilli Taylor, in action early this season against Scappoose, is among the Gulls' team leaders.

After an 0-2 start to the season, the Seaside girls basketball team is looking more like a Cowapa League team, following their second straight win Thursday night.

The Lady Gulls had everything well in hand by halftime in a nonleague game at Corbett, leading 23-9 at the break on their way to a much-tougher-than-it-should-have-been 38-31 victory over the Cardinals.

After playing to a 7-7 tie in the first quarter, Seaside outscored Corbett 16-2 in the second in a foul-plagued first half, which featured a combined 25 fouls.

While the Cardinals finished 1-for-9 at the free throw line in the first half, the Gulls were dominating the boards and racking up points, including a pair of 3-pointers by Jadah Doney in the second period.

Lilli Taylor and Tristyn McFadden both knocked down 3-pointers in the third quarter for an eventual 29-14 lead.

That's when the Cardinals had their only good stretch of offense in the game, as Corbett answered with 3-pointers by Sydney Schimel, Luciana Raimondo and Tia Kendall, trimming the Seaside lead to 29-25.

Taylor led the Gulls with nine points before fouling out, while Doney and Ruby Douglas had eight points apiece. Olivia Fritz had 10 points for Corbett before fouling out.
