ROCHESTER — Blasting out to a 21-15 halftime lead and extending the advantage with a 21-point fourth quarter, Elma earned a district berth by finishing off Rainier in an Evergreen 1A League playoff game on Saturday at Rochester.

On Monday, the Eagles will begin district play at La Center at 7 p.m.

Ryan Collin dished out four assists to go with his four points.

Zack Froembling led the Mountaineers with 10 points.

“Overall, I am proud of the kids,” said Eagles head coach Marvin Prince. “They played the kind of basketball we asked them to play. They got the ball into the paint and utilized our size to attack the basket.”

Prince praised the defensive efforts of Kevin Farr and Tyson Nauman. He also commended Ray Stark for serving as the “floor general.”

MATLOCK — Tightly played in the first half, Wishkah relied upon its rebounding prowess and defensive intensity to knock off Mary M. Knight in this non-league regualr-season finalè on Saturday.

Brady Anderson led all scorers with 19 points and four assists for the Loggers (13-5), who got 14 points and seven rebounds from Gavin Baltzel and eight rebounds from Trey Berge.

TAHOLAH — On Senior Night, host Taholah settled its emotions and took care of business with a non-league victory over Oakville on Saturday night.

Taholah, which played its second and final home game of the season, got a team-high 22 points, eight rebounds and five steals from senior Dramikha Skaar.

“It was an emotional game for our girls, because it was their Senior Night,” Taholah head coach Jerry Walther said. “It was a rough first half, but we jumped out in the second half and took care of business. It was really nice to see them work as a team tonight.”

The Chitwhins led 37-24 at halftime and cruised from there. Karleena Walther passed out six assists and swiped five steals and Laura James dished out five assists and grabbed six steals.

On Thursday, Taholah (2-5 after forfeiting four games) will take on Mary M. Knight at a neutral site to be determined in the District IV North playoffs.

MATLOCK — Short-handed Mary M. Knight made liberal use of reserves to fend off a determined Wishkah challenge in a non-league contest Saturday at Matlock.

The Owls (12-3) were without two injured starters and played some other regulars sparingly.

Carlie Adsero led Knight’s balanced attack with eight points. Ashley Kiliz, filling in at point guard, collected seven points, four rebounds and three steals.

Wishkah (1-15) turned in one of its finest performances.

“The biggest thing was the girls came out and had fun tonight but (still) be intense,” said Wishkah coach Crystal Lawton. “They did that and they shot the ball.”

Wishkah’s Erin Anderson led all scorers with 11 points. She also had three steals, as did her sister Ryan and Dani Zembal.

Chrissy Rurup knocked down a pair of 3-point baskets in scoring eight points for the Loggerettes. Teammate Aaryn Marbut grabbed nine rebounds.

Valley cited the floor play of Aimee Bearden.

Due to the luck of the draw, Wishkah will advance directly to the bi-district tournament Saturday, with an opponent and site currently undetermined.

The Owls will face Taholah in the Northern Division playoffs Thursday, probably at a neutral site.
