GIRLS BASKETBALL

Gulls 54, Vikings 31

MENLO — Abby Maneman and Aiyisha Garcia led the offense as Raymond romped past Willapa Valley for its 10th straight win in Pacific League play on Wednesday.

Maneman scored 17 points, grabbed six rebounds and added four assists for the Gulls (5-0, 10-1). Garcia scored 16 points, pulled down six rebounds and swiped two steals. Courtney Hagain grabbed six rebounds to go with her seven points.

Michaela Huber scored 14 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Vikings (3-2, 6-6). Karli Friese pulled down seven rebounds and swiped two steals.

“We had a good zone defense and did not give them too many looks,” said Raymond head coach Jon Schray. “We rebounded well and made them shoot over us.”

Schray praised Hagain for a fine job as point guard. He also commended Garcia for her work on the outside especially in the first half and Maneman for earning all of her 17 points in the first half before fouling out with four minutes to go in the game.

“They had an amazing first half,” said Vikings head coach Melissa Aust. “Everything went in for them and we couldn’t match them. In the second half, we got shots off, but could not score.”

On Friday, Valley will host South Bend. Raymond will host Northwest Christian on that same night.

Hyaks 35, Wildcats 29

WESTPORT — Marya Pope and Mousie Shale led a fourth-quarter comeback as North Beach edged Ocosta in a Pacific League game Wednesday at Wesport.

The underdog Wildcats (0-5, 2-10) led by as many as six in the fourth quarter. Shale, however, scored eight of her 10 points in the fourth quarter, while Pope knocked down a 3-point basket and a pair of deuces to rally the Hyaks (2-3, 6-5).

Pope scored a career-high 16 points.

North Beach coach Peter Fry said a shift to a man-to-man defense in the fourth quarter paid dividends.

“Once we were able to do that, we were able to secure some steals and get some transition buckets and also some transition 3-pointers, too,” Fry said.

“We had trouble closing this game and we became too erratic at the end,” Ocosta coach Rachel Wenzel lamented.

Emily Takagi grabbed 10 rebounds, while Quay Somotich had nine steals and six rebounds for the Hyaks. North Beach standout Wakeena DeLaCruz missed the contest due to a family obligation.

Mikayla Sunde had nine points for Ocosta. Teammate Kate Christensen contributed 14 rebounds, three steals and seven blocked shots.

The Wildcats travel to Naselle on Friday. The Hyaks are idle until Monday, when they journey to South Bend.
