Philomath High coach Mat Phelps said it was a good all-around team effort against the Huskies (1-7 overall, 1-3 Oregon West).
“Madyx Mooney played really well, connecting with good combination play and finishing,” Phelps said. “We were able to see some girls in different spots and try some new things.”
