The Spanish Springs girls basketball team split its two games on the first day of the Centennial tournament in Las Vegas.

The Cougars opened up play with a 46-37 win over West Anchorage.

Lyndsey Anderson and Laneesha Terrance both chipped in 12 points in the win. Anderson also tied a school record by pulling down 16 rebounds. KK Lang added 10.

Spanish Springs (11-2) trailed 10-6 after the first quarter, but scored the first nine points of the second quarter to take command. The Cougars’ biggest lead was 12 after a Hannah Woytek jumper late in the third quarter made it 35-23.

In the second game Thursday, Spanish Springs had to face Woodbridge of Irvine, Calif. As of Friday morning, the Warriors are ranked 34th in the nation by MaxPreps.

The Cougars outscored Woodbridge by a combined four points in the first, second and fourth quarters, but the third quarter did them in as the Warriors put up 19 and held the Purple and Silver to three to secure a 54-41 victory.

Anderson and Terrance led the way again with 17 and 16 points respectively. Spanish Springs was hurt by starters Riley Holladay and Woytek combining for three points.

The Cougars will play Western and host Centennial today to conclude round-robin action.
