GENOA — Twin River started hot in Thursday's season opener against North Bend, then went cold the rest of the way.

Despite the offensive slump, Twin River still held a 21-20 advantage entering the fourth quarter before North Bend pulled in front.

Gabi Weick led the Titans with eight points, and Cali Shanle added seven points and five rebounds. Kristin Lux scored a game-high 12 points for North Bend.

Twin River hosts Logan View/Scribner-Snyder on Saturday.

The Cougars trailed 24-19 at halftime before erasing the deficit with an 11-point third quarter. Both teams scored five points in the final period.

Maddie Portwine paced Cross County with 15 points, including three of the team's four 3-pointers, and Savannah Anderson knocked down the other trey during her seven-point performance.

McCool Junction's Hadley Wiemer matched Portwine with 15 points.

It was a struggle for both teams at the free-throw line as Cross County hit 9 of 18 attempts and McCool Junction shot 10 of 23.

The Cougars are back on their home court Friday against Shelby-Rising City before traveling to Meridian on Dec. 8.
