The home team (10-1), ranked in Class 5A, sprinted out to a 31-8 lead after the first quarter in Monday’s nonconference girls game.

“We got beat by a very good team,” Washington coach Shannon Rugg said. “I thought we competed hard all four quarters. We drove the ball to the basket a lot more that we ever have. We just couldn’t finish at the hoop as well as we can. The score doesn’t show it, but we did somethings better than we have been doing. We shows signs of doing some good things, but we are just too inconsistent with how we play.”

Isabel Bailey netted eight points for the Demons. Kira Ropp had five points and five rebounds. Halle Leyden scored five points. Olivia Pacha and Phelan Hostetler combined for nine rebounds.

The Demons (5-6) play at Notre Dame Thursday.
