Pleasant Valley girls roll past Corning to kick off Red Bluff’s Holiday Classic Tournament

RED BLUFF — The Corning girls had a rough start to the Holiday Classic Basketball Tournament Thursday afternoon, falling to Pleasant Valley 71-17.

The Cards were held scoreless through the first period, while the Vikings put up 25, and Corning struggled to even take shots thanks to an aggressive full court press from PV that created turnovers on nearly every possession.

Kanwalpreet Kaur was able to hit a two-pointer from the right side early in the second period, but that would be all the scoring for the Cards. PV went to the half up 45-2.

Despite the game being out of reach, the Cardinals settled down in the second half and cut way down on the turnovers. Kaur hit another basket and a three-pointer and Aspen Armstrong was able to work inside and pick up a basket. The Vikings didn’t slow down, going up 62-10 through three.

Nicole Dodge had a basket and a three-pointer in the final frame and Nalani Capistrand scored to close out the lopsided loss.

Aj Gambol led the Vikings with 19 points, including 3 three-pointers; Mariah Letcher had 12 points with a pair of threes; Faith Martin had 10 points and Maddux Wilson had 9 points.
