GIRLS BASKETBALL

Eagles 69, Beavers 26

ELMA — In control from the get-go, Elma’s defense set up the offense throughout the contest to allow the hosts to cruise by Tenino in this Evergreen 1A win on Wednesday night.

The Eagles featured balanced scoring, led by 10 points from Miranda McDonald. Sydney Smythe added eight rebounds and five steals and was cited for her defensive work. Elma (8-0, 13-3) forced 32 turnovers in the contest.

“It was a great all-around team effort,” Elma head coach Lisa Johnson said. “We’re getting to where we need to be toward the end of the season. We’re getting good at working at all aspects of the game and that’s good to see from the girls.”

On Saturday, Elma will travel to Aberdeen to face the Bobcats in a co-ed doubleheader.

Splits at Forks

FORKS — All three Grays Harbor rivals took the long trip to Forks on Wednesday and two of them came home with a split in this Evergreen 1A four-team dual meet.

Hoquiam and Elma came away with a two-match split, with the Eagles toppling the Grizzlies, 42-28. Hoquiam knocked off Montesano, 42-26.

Elma lost to host Forks, 36-24. This match, along with Montesano’s match with Forks, were unavailable at press time.

Alex Valliere came away with two wins for Hoquiam at 160 pounds, knocking off Montesano’s Jacob Sampair, 10-8, and pinning Steven Persell at 3:15.

“That’s two big wins for him, which will help him with seeding at the sub-district meet,” HHS head coach Fidel Sanchez said. “To start the meet with a win over Monte was great, knowing they have some tough kids. Against Elma, they have every weight class covered. We stayed close.”

On Saturday, Hoquiam will travel to the Kalama Rubber Chicken tournament.
