Prep Roundup: Elma boys upend Forks in overtime for second win of the season


Eagles 44, Spartans 37 (OT)

FORKS — Elma had to overcome a few obstacles before picking up its second win of the season, taking Forks into overtime to drive away with an Evergreen 1A victory on Friday night.

The Eagles (2-5, 2-11) led for most of the fourth quarter before the Spartans rallied to get one last shot at winning in regulation. The last-second shot failed, sending the game into overtime.

In the extra frame, Elma lost Tyler Davis and Chance Bremer to fouls, but got a big spark from Tyson Nauman. The junior guard hit a transition 3-point basket for a four-point lead, then converted two free throws with 50 seconds left to ice the game.

“From the first starter to the last kid on the bench, this was all on the kids,” Elma head coach Marvin Price said. “No doubt, they did a great job. I’m so proud of them. They responded in a big way tonight.”

Ray Stark led all scorers with 12 points, with Ryan Collin adding 10 points and Bremer 21 rebounds for Elma.

On Tuesday, Elma stays home to greet Tenino.

Vikings 69, Wildcats 54

MENLO — Matt Konigsberger’s and Stephen Camenzind’s double-doubles helped power Willapa Valley past Ocosta in Pacific League play on Friday at Tenoski Gym.

Cody Buchanan was the leading scorer for the Vikings with 15 points. Konigsberger scored 12 points, grabbed 10 rebounds, swiped four steals and dished up four assists for the Vikings (7-1, 12-4). Camenzind scored 11 points and pulled down 10 rebounds.

The Vikings outrebounded the Wildcats, 40-27.

“They just really took it to us on the glass in the second quarter,” Ocosta coach Jason Quinby said. “I think they outrebounded us 16-5 in that quarter. That was the big difference in the game.”

Caleb Tackett was the leading scorer for the Wildcats (3-5, 7-8), with 13 points. Sophomore Dan Sobrera added 12 points and Kurt Bambauer scored 10 points. Tackett and James Benn had 11 rebounds each for the Wildcats.

Zach Friese, David Rockett and Drew Pearson contributed eight points apiece for Valley.

“The first half we played outstanding basketball,” said Vikings head coach John Peterson. “They (the Wildcats) are a scary team when they are playing well, with some great shooters. Our kids stayed on them and in the third quarter, we were up by as many as 24 points with 3:55 to go. We give Ocosta a lot of credit. They have a great coach, Jason Quinby.”

Peterson cited Buchanan for his finest game. He also praised Konigsberger for “running the show with no turnovers.”

The Vikings hit the road to North Beach on Thursday. Ocosta travels to Northwest Christian that same night.
