Toledo held Winlock to seven points in the first quarter and just four more in the second to go into halftime at 27.
In the second half, Addison Hall went to the Cardinals and collected 17 of their 21 strong points in the last 16 minutes. Toledo turned the defense around her, with both Clark and Abbie Marcil tasked with protecting her temporarily, and while she was getting her points, Layton was content with defending the Winlock star.
“You did a good job doing everything we asked,” he said.
And while Toledo Hall couldn’t close completely, he narrowed the rest of the Winlock line-up to just 11 points in total. Karlie Jones finished with five points and Madison Vigre had four.
Toledo (5-2) is expected to play Kalama in his last home game of the regular season on Thursday. Winlock (4-3) is said to be home to Toutle Lake.
