FORKS — Ray Stark tallied 14 points and Ryan Collin added 13 as Elma finished off Forks in Evergreen 1A League basketball on Friday at Forks.

Leo Gonzalez paced the Spartans with 23 points. The Eagles led 43-22 at halftime.

The Eagles scored 54 percent from the floor compared to 27 percent for the Spartans.

“We came out and we played the way we are capable of,” said EHS head coach Marvin Prince. “We will work more on our defensive discipline, but ultimately we did a great job in the game.”

Prince cited the defensive effort of Rashad Lorton and the ball handling and distribution of Stark. He said Stark looked to pass before he shot.

Elma will host Tenino on Tuesday.

The Tribe limited the Owls to six field goals — four of those from 3-point range.

WISHKAH — With 3:53 left in the contest, Wishkah held a 51-39 lead against Pe Ell in this non-league matchup, but the Trojans finished the game with a buzzer-beating 3-point shot by Austin Smith for the win.

With seconds to go, Smith nailed his only field goal of the game to cap a game-ending 15-3 run for the visitors.

“We let one get away from us,” Wishkah head coach Matt Ferrier said. “We were in control, then we moved away from what was working. I take responsibility for that. I moved them away from attacking the way that was working for us.”
