Gulls 69, Mountaineers 36

RAYMOND — A seven-point possession in the second quarter helped lift unbeaten Raymond past Rainier in a non-league game Thursday at Raymond.

The Gulls (8-0) trailed 15-8 after one quarter and were still down 18-13 before Rayce Newman made a basket and was fouled. The Rainier coach was then assessed a technical foul for protesting the call.

Newman completed the three-point play, Marvin So made both technical foul shots and the Gulls also scored off the ensuing inbound play to grab a permanent lead at 20-13.

It was no contest after that.

“We came out a little lethargic to start the first quarter,” Raymond coach Mike Tully said. “In the second quarter, we finally kicked it into gear.”

Newman and Darol Ratsavongsy shared Raymond scoring honors with 12 points apiece, while So added 11 points. Ratsavongsy also contributed seven rebounds, while Alex Sida came up with four steals.

Raymond will challenge two more Class 1A schools in its Co-Ed New Year’s Day Classic tonight and Saturday. The Gulls face Montesano tonight and Hoquiam on Saturday.

Braves 47, Vikings 45

MENLO — Jonah Cook improvised a basket at the buzzer to give LaConner an exciting win over Willapa Valley on the opening day of Valley’s Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Tournament on Thursday.

Valley tied it at 47 on Anthony Sagen’s 3-point basket with 10 seconds remaining. A LaConner shot at the other end missed, but the 6-foot-8 Cook snared the rebound with one hand and shoveled in the putback as he was falling out of bounds.

“It breaks my heart my kids lost because they did everything I asked them to do,” Viking coach John Peterson said. “To play that well against what I feel was a quality opponent, I’m really proud of the kids.”

Spencer Novak led LaConner with 15 points, while Cook blocked nine shots to go with his 12 points.

Valley’s Matt Konigsberger turned in a fine all-around game with 17 points and three assists. Stephen Camenzind added 10 points and eight rebounds as the Vikings won the boards, 26-21.

The Vikings will close out the tourney by facing Pe Ell today.

Trojans 59, Indians 49

MENLO — Devin Toepelt scored 21 points as Pe Ell downed South Bend on the opening day of the Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Tournament.

The Indians (0-10) never led, but were as close as five points in the fourth quarter.

“We were in the game the whole way and played with a lot more energy,” South Bend coach Tom Betrozoff said. “The real difference in the game was they made nine (3-point baskets).”

Miles Davis led the Indians with 13 points and seven rebounds, while Mitch Edwards added 10 points and seven boards. Betrozoff also cited the play of Tyson Johnson.

“He’s only a freshman, but he makes everyone better,” the Tribe coach said.

South Bend starter Mike Hoerr is sideline for an indefinite period with a knee injury.

The Indians close out the tourney against LaConner at 3 p.m. today.

Beavers 56, Loggers 37

TENINO — Class 1A Tenino pulled away in the second half to down Wishkah on the opening day of the Tenino Christmas Tournament on Thursday.

The Class 1B Loggers (6-2) trailed by only five midway through the third quarter. Tenino, regarded as one of the top teams in the Evergreen 1A circuit, then used its athleticism to take command as Wishkah struggled with its perimeter shooting.

Normally productive from beyond the arc, the Loggers did not hit a single 3-point shot during the contest.

“Our shot selection (in the final 12 minutes) didn’t help,” Wishkah coach Matt Ferrier said. “But it was a good game for us. I’m pretty satisfied even though it was a 19-point loss.”

Brady Anderson led Wishkah’s scorers with 14 points. Gavin Baltzell and Trey Berge each pulled down seven rebounds.

The Loggers will face Northwest Christian to close out the tourney today.

Wish 5 9 11 12 — 37 Ten 10 13 17 16 — 56

Wishkah (37) — Olson, B. Anderson 14, Rodriguez, Gardiner 1, Thein 1, J. Anderson 3, Arnold 4, Baltzell 9, Berge 5, Quintero. FG — 13-36 (.361). FT — 11-20.

Tenino (56) — Hammond 3, Burch, B. Harris 6, N. Peterson 4, Conklin 8, Egge 6, Devante Harris 12, Shaw 8, Peterson 9. FG — 22-45 (.489). FT — 7-9.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Gulls 49, Mountaineers 42

RAYMOND — Aiyisha Garcia and Abby Maneman had double-doubles to lead Raymond past Class 1A Rainier in a non-league game Thursday at Raymond.

Garcia amassed 14 points and 13 rebounds. Maneman, playing virtually the entire game, added 10 points and 11 boards.

The Gulls led 7-0 nearly seven minutes into a raggedly played first quarter. The hosts (7-1) retained the upper hand as the quality of play improved and led by as many as 15 in the final period.

Raymond outscored the Mountaineers heavily from the foul line. The Gulls hit 18 of 29 free throws, while the Mounties connected on only 4 of 14 from the stripe.

“You could tell this was a Christmas break game,” Raymond coach Jon Schray said. “Kids out of their routine, sluggish.”

Raymond’s Courtney Hagain swiped four steals.

The Class 2B Gulls will face two more 1A teams in their Co-Ed New Year’s Classic Tournament today and Saturday. They’ll face Montesano tonight and Hoquiam on Saturday.

Rain 6 12 7 17 — 42 Ray 9 14 11 15 — 49

Rainier (42) — Mortlock 8, Thomas, Turcott, Kelsey Eygabroad 12, Honaker 6, Naumann 2, Brown 12, Dungan 2. FG — 19-42 (.452). FT — 4-14.

Raymond (49) — Williams 5, Gilbert, Koski, Boyes 4, Heckard 2, Donovan, Garcia 14, Hagain 9, Maneman 10, Karlsvik 5, Silva, Oatfield. FG — 14-42 (.333). FT — 18-29.

Braves 48, Vikings 38

MENLO — Two scoring droughts turned a Willapa Valley lead into a deficit it couldn’t overcome against LaConner in the Willapa Valley’s Jack Q Pearson Holiday Tournament on Thursday.

The Vikings led by five, 25-20, at halftime before the Braves opened the second half with a 10-0 run. Valley fought back to tie the game after three quarters, 35-35, but lost the lead with a 13-3 fourth-quarter to the visitors.

“We had two big scoring droughts and that killed us,” Willapa Valley head coach Melissa Aust said. “It was a lot of our own mistakes again. We’re still committing unforced errors and they hit a couple of outside shots. They were more physical than we were, that hurt us a bit.”

Michaela Huber led the Vikings with 12 points, with Karli Friese pulling down seven rebounds and Lauren Friese six rebounds.

Today, Willapa Valley (6-4) will take on Pe Ell to finish off the tournament.

LaC 14 6 15 13 — 48 WV 13 12 10 3 — 38

LaConner (48) — Novak 9, Christensen 1, McClung 8, Anderson, Reynolds 2, McKnight 12, Stewart 4, James 4, McCormick 8. FG — 22-58 (.379). FT — 3-11.

Trojans 56, Indians 16

MENLO — South Bend stayed close early, but turnovers and a running Pe Ell offense dominated in this Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Tournament matchup on Thursday afternoon.

Makenzie Russell and Myranda Curtis led the Indians (4-5) with four points and eight rebounds each. Emily Sanchez pulled down 10 rebounds.

“We started off well, a 6-4 lead halfway through the first quarter; after that, it slowly slipped away,” South Bend head coach Gary Wilson said. “We had 29 turnovers. We have to widdle those down. (Pe Ell) is a great team. We had a hard time attacking the basket.”

Today, South Bend returns for the second day of the tournament against LaConner.
