Struggling with a high-pressure zone defense, the Toledo boys’ basketball team lost their first game of the season to 1A Castle Rock, 74-55, on Friday night.

The Riverhawks (1-1) got off to a slow start, falling 20-8 in the first quarter and giving the Rockets plenty of scoring chances in transition with turnovers. They just couldn’t get out of that opening hole, as the Rockets finished with four double-digit scorers led by Trystin Marin’s 23. Marin had 19 in the first half, alone.

“We got it down to seven at one point, but the wheels just fell off a bit,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “It’s a game of swings, we just didn’t have that many swings for us.”

The Riverhawks were again led by Jake Cournyer’s 19 points, as well as double-digit Rogan Stanley (16 points) and Carson Olmstead (12 points). Olmstead also finished with six boards, a record for the team.

The Riverhawks will be looking to bounce back when they host Mount Vernon Christian for their next game on Saturday at 3:30 p.m.
