Vikings 54, Comets 50, OT

NASELLE — Storming back from a 14-point deficit, Willapa Valley overcame Naselle in overtime in a Pacific League game Friday at Naselle.

The Vikings trailed 36-22 late in the third quarter and 38-26 entering the fourth period. But Stephen Camenzind scored 12 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter to rally the visitors.

The Vikings (1-0, 2-1) actually took a three-point lead into the final minute of regulation, but Naselle’s Dustin Eaton hit a 3-point basket to force overtime.

Anthony Sagen hit a pair of threes and Randy Heckard took a key charge as Valley never trailed in the extra period. Sagen’s 12 points came exclusively on 3-pointers.

“We played the ugliest first half, you’ve ever seen,” Valley coach John Peterson. “We must have missed 8 to 10 chippies. I’ll say one thing about these kids, they do not quit. They were unbelievable.”

Camenzind also had 12 rebounds and three blocked shots. Matt Konigsberger had 10 rebounds, six assists and three blocks, while Cody Buchanan came up with five steals.

The Vikings travel to Montesano for a non-leaguer Monday.

RAYMOND — Raymond used a fast start to top Ocosta in the Pacific League opener on Friday at Raymond.

The Gulls (1-0, 3-0) led 45-12 at halftime.

The Wildcats (0-1, 2-3) outscored the Gulls 18-8 in the third quarter, before the Gulls closed it out by outpointing the Wildcats, 12-7, in the final period.

Darol Ratsavongsy was the leading scorer for the Gulls with 15 points, seven rebounds and four steals. Rayce Newman added 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds. Andrew Hamilton grabbed seven rebounds, swiped seven steals and added five blocks.

Kurt Bambauer was the leading scorer for the Wildcats with 14 points.

“It was the tale of two halves,” said Gull head coach Mike Tully. “In the first half, we were firing on all cylinders. We pressed, forced turnovers, made steals and made transition baskets. They (the Wildcats) came out with more fire in the second half. We made some mistakes and they outplayed us in the third quarter. Our shots are starting to fall, but we have some work to do.”

Tully cited Ratsavongsy for a fine game and Newman for stepping up defensively.

On Tuesday, Raymond will hit the road to Elma. On Monday, Ocosta travels to Mary M. Knight.

The Comets did not have any players score in double figures.

“We were flat and did not score any points in the first four minutes of the game,” said Vikings head coach Melissa Aust. “We had no rhythm in the first half, but were able to win in spite of 29 turnovers. Our passes were not smart and we were not taking care of the ball. We know what we have to work on for the next game.”

Aust cited Karli Friese for fine play on offense and the entire team for good all-around rebounding.
