BOYS BASKETBALL

Vikings 64, Indians 41

MENLO — The seventh-ranked Willapa Valley boys came from behind in the second half to top South Bend in Pacific League play on Friday at Tenoski Gym in Menlo.

The Indians (1-10, 1-18) led 29-25 at halftime. But the Vikings (10-1, 15-4) controlled the boards the entire game, out-rebounding the Indians 40-28, and outscored South Bend 39-12 in the second half.

Justin Elliott led the Tribe with 18 points. In the first half, he was 7-of-11 from the floor and 2-2 from the line. Miles Davis added 10 points.

“He (Elliott) gave us fits,” said Vikings head coach John Peterson. “They (SB) played well in the first half and my hat goes off to them. We were settling for jump shots in the first half. We played better defensively and offensively in the second half. They’re really young and we kept going on the inside to get the shots, which were a lot better in the second half.”

Matt Konigsberger had a double-double and led the Vikings with 21 points, 10 rebounds, four steals and five assists. David Rockett added 15 points, while Stephen Camenzind logged his own double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds. Anthony Sagen dished out four assists.

The Mountaineers drained 61 percent of their free throws, while the Eagles dropped only 44 percent of theirs, which was the difference in the game.

Ray Stark dished out five assists and Ryan Collin added four.

Zach Froembling led the Mountaineers with 25 points.

“He (Froembling) hurt us badly,” said Elma head coach Marvin Prince. “He made 50 percent of his shots and 10-of-13 free throws. We had trouble locating him. He was all over the floor. We also took some ill-advised shots and lost the game at the foul line, but we outrebounded them 39-24.”

Prince praised Stevens for his valuable performance off the bench.

Spartans 49, Bulldogs 28

MONTESANO — Limiting Montesano to 10 points in the second half, defensive-minded Forks emerged with an Evergreen 1A League victory Friday at Bo Griffith Memorial Gym.

The Bulldogs (5-5, 10-7) were locked in an 18-all tie at halftime before turning cold in the final two quarters.

“In the third quarter, they were 7-of-11 and we were 1-of-13 (from the field),” Monte coach Doug Schupbach said. “That was the ball game right there. And it didn’t get much better in the fourth quarter.”

The Bulldogs made only 2 of 16 from the floor in the final stanza and failed to connect on 14 attempts from beyond the 3-point arc. They also hit only 6 of 19 free throws.

Kenny Roy led Montesano with 19 points. Season scoring leader Layne Bruner, slowed by a sprained ankle, went scoreless.

Schupbach cited Ben Ohashi for his defensive performance on Forks standout Branden Decker.

The Bulldogs host North Beach in a non-league tonight.

Kurt Bambauer led the Wildcats (4-7, 9-10), with 18 points and four assists. James Benn had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Caleb Tackett had six steals to go with his eight points.

“I think we were slow after an emotional game last night,” said Wildcat head coach Jason Quinby, referring to Ocosta’s overtime victory over Rochester on Thursday night. “We dug ourselves a hole too big to overcome. I am proud of our effort in the second half. We just took too long to get going.”

Quinby praised Nate Krigbaum for fine all-around play.
