Gavin Baltzell hit a three-pointer in overtime to clinch the win for the Loggers (2-0).

Bryan Parker led all Eagles’ scorers with 23 points.
“Midway through the third quarter, we challenged our team with a different defense and got back into the game,” said Wishkah head coach Matt Ferrier. “Berge did a great job defending the second highest scorer for the Eagles. The team did a great job with changing the defense and in the loud environment there in Des Moines. Our girls team did a great job of cheering for our side.”
Ferrier praised Brady Anderson for his six 3-pointers and going 14-of-17 from the free throw line. Anderson scored 36 of his total in the second half and overtime. Ferrier also praised the team for getting the ball to Anderson for the score.

Crusaders 70, Vikings 63
MENLO — On the advice of one of its players, Willapa Valley pressed Tacoma Baptist in the fourth quarter to tighten up this non-league encounter before falling late on Friday night.
Down 54-40 after three quarters, the Vikings had three players with three fouls, but went to a pressing defense. The Crusaders saw their lead shrink to 66-63 with 44 seconds left in the contest.
After two free throws made it 68-63, Valley had a chance at a wide-open 3-point basket, but the ball went halfway in and spun out to end the rally.
“That was fun; I’m so proud of both teams,” Willapa Valley head coach John Peterson said. “We do not quit. For three quarters, we couldn’t hit our shots, couldn’t throw it into the ocean. (Tacoma Baptist) is good, really athletic. They were making everything.”
The Crusaders’ Brandon Stoehr led all scorers with 33 points, including 5-of-7 3-point baskets. Matt Konigsberger led the Vikings with 11 points, 15 rebounds, three blocks and six assists. Kyler Oblad added 13 points as well.
Steven Camenzind added 11 points, 12 rebounds and five blocked shots for Valley (1-1). Anthony Sagen scored 10 points and was cited for his question to Peterson about pressing Tacoma Baptist in the fourth quarter.
On Monday, Valley returns to action at home against district rival Adna.
Tacoma Baptist (70) — Cooksley 2, Stoehr 33, Smith, Pascua 16, Brazile 9, Caughlan, Wood 7, Besk 3, Stone. FG — 25-61. FT — 11-14.
Willapa Valley (63) — Sagen 10, Buchanan 7, Konigsberger 13, Oblad 13, Gray 2, Pearson 7, Camenzind 11. FG — 24-59. FT — 11-20.
Vikings 70, Crusaders 55
MENLO — One night after scoring the game-winning layup against Adna, Willapa Valley’s Karli Friese knocked down a game-high 27 points to lead the host Vikings past Tacoma Baptist in a non-league contest on Friday night.
Friese finished with 27 points, seven assists, six rebounds and five steals for the Vikings (2-1). Alicia Smaciarz added 14 points and Lauren Friese 12 points and six rebounds.
“We shot the ball well, but we got a lot of fast break opportunities off steals and pressure,” Valley head coach Matt Bannish said. “Tacoma Baptist kept it close. We had a couple of spurts where they couldn’t handle our pressure and that made the difference. This was a fast-paced game and I’m happy with how the girls responded to playing back-to-back nights.”
Tacoma Baptist also pushed the pace against Valley and were led by Sarah Zeitler’s 26 points.
Coach Bannish cited Alicia Smaziarz for her all-around game.
On Tuesday, Valley (2-1) hits the road to take on Lake Quinault.
