BOYS BASKETBALL

Eagles 47, Mountaineers 37

RAINIER — Elma used a fast start to topple Rainier and remain unbeaten in Evergreen 1A League play on Tuesday at Rainier.

Ryan Collin scored nine of his 14 points in the first quarter and Rashad Lorton led an inspired defensive effort as the Eagles (4-0, 6-3) blasted out to a 20-5 lead.

“Our defensive pressure was just solid,” Elma coach Marvin Prince said. “Then they settled down a little bit and we got a little bit complacent in the second quarter.”

Nevertheless, the Mounties (3-2, 4-7) never make significant progress in cutting Elma’s lead until it was too late.

Collin paced Elma’s scoring with 14 points. Tyson Nauman chipped in with an excellent all-around effort, finishing with nine points, four rebounds, four steals and three assists.

Lorton was cited for his defense.

The Eagles return home Friday to face Rochester.

Thunderbirds 63, Bobcats 53

TUMWATER — The story of this Evergreen 2A matchup was told on the free-throw line, with host Tumwater scoring one-third of its points on the line to knock off Aberdeen on Tuesday night.

The T-Birds hit 21-for-27 from the line in the contest to the Bobcats’ 1-for-6. The hosts also knocked home 8-of-10 attempts in the fourth quarter to allow them to erase a slim 44-42 Aberdeen lead with 5 minutes left to go.

“They had just six field goals in the fourth quarter; this game was frustrating,” AHS head coach Leonard Barnes said. “We had 27 fouls, they had 10 in the game. That is what it came down to. Our offense was very efficient, but we couldn’t overcome the free-throw disparity. There was nothing more I could ask of the kids. They were 1-2 possessions away from winning.”

Jacob Black led all scorers with 22 points and six rebounds and Addam Follett added 21 points for Aberdeen (0-3, 3-5). Cole Edwards dished out six assists and Austin Floch pulled down six rebounds.

On Friday, Aberdeen stays home to take on River Ridge.

Loggers 65, Eagles 43

WISHKAH — Motivated by a 12-point loss on the road last month, Wishkah brought its defense to bear on Three Rivers Christian and enjoyed the effort in this pivotal non-league district matchup on Tuesday night.

The Loggers broke out to a 19-7 first-quarter lead and kept their foot on the pedal offensively.

“We controlled it wire-to-wire,” Wishkah head coach Matt Ferrier said. “It is nice to go into the district tournament and go wire-to-wire against the south’s No. 1 team. Last month, we gave up (72). We put in a new defense, pressured them and frustrated them. We played all 32 minutes, didn’t take a play off or make many mistakes.”

Brady Anderson led all scorers with 31 points and Chris Thein added 11 points for the Loggers (9-3). Keigan Gardiner dished out six assists and pulled down eight rebounds.

Robert Rodriguez was cited by Ferrier for his all-around game and Thein was cited for his offense.

Acorns 63, Mustangs 33

BROOKLYN — A quick start for Oakville, in a gym that often gives the Acorns trouble, helped out on Tuesday night to claim this non-league matchup with North River in Brooklyn.

The Acorns rotated their roster every three minutes, according to head coach Cliff Harris, and bolted out to an 18-6 first-quarter lead. T.J. Trott and Shawn Youckton led all scorers with 10 points each for Oakville (5-6).

“It is fun to play there, but that’s a hard place to play for us,” Harris said of North River’s multi-purpose theater/cafeteria/gym. “It may be the depth perception, but we played well. (North River head coach Sean Pierson) has done a great job with that team. They are playing better than last year and they have two girls on the team who mix it up with the boys well.”

Kenneth Simpson led the Mustangs with nine points and Christian Wilson eight points.

“We’ve been managing 34 rebounds a game, but only managed 22 tonight,” Pierson said. “Oakville won the battle for second-chance points. With 11 of their 13 players scoring, the Acorns are a smart and aggressive team that gets everyone involved.”

On Thursday, Oakville takes on Wishkah in a key district matchup. On Friday, North River travels to Mary M. Knight.

Oakville 18 12 17 16 — 63

North River 6 12 9 6 — 33

North River (33) — Gabe Turner 5, L. Charape 4, Holmes, Berentsen 3, J. Charape 2, Taylor, Simpson 9, Baugham 2, Wilson 8, McDougall. FG — 16-40 (..400). FT — 0-0.

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Eagles 60, Mountaineers 54

RAINIER — Bethany Lipska scored all eight of her points in the fourth quarter to enable Elma to hold off Rainier in Evergreen 1A League play Tuesday at Rainier.

The heavily-favored Eagles (3-1, 6-4) appeared poised for a lopsided victory when they raced to a 22-5 lead after one quarter.

The well-balanced Mountaineers came charging back, however, and actually closed to within a point in the second half of a foul-filled affair that included 78 free throws.

“I think we let the foot off the gas and just became undisciplined in every aspect of the game,” Elma coach Lisa Johnson said.

Lipska’s fourth-quarter contribution proved the difference.

“She came off the bench and did a great job inside for us,” Johnson noted.

Elma’s Brooke Goldsmith led all scorers with 14 points. Lauren Thompson added 11 for the Eagles.

The Eagles face a critical test Thursday at Rochester.

Elma 22 13 8 17 — 60

Rainier (54) — Haley 4, Honaker 9, Thomas 11, Ivy 8, Spivey 11, Dungan 11. FG — 14-55 (.255). FT — 25-42.

Hyaks 49, Indians 43

OYEHUT — Quay Sotomish tallied 23 points as North Beach upended South Bend in a Pacific League contest Tuesday at Oyehut.

Sotomish also pulled down 13 rebounds for the Hyaks (2-3, 3-6).

The underdog Hyaks led by as many as 17 early in the third quarter. South Bend (2-2, 4-5) then reeled off the next 10 points to close the gap. The Indians cut the deficit to four in the fourth quarter, but freshman Reilly Moore sank two free throws in the late going to seal the victory.

The Hyaks had assists on nearly all 17 of their field goals.

“Our team really moved the ball well tonight,” North Beach coach Brett Mackey said. “It was by far the best ball movement we’ve had all year. Our shot selection was much better and that was reflected in our (improved) shooting percentage.”

Emily Takagi had six rebounds, while Moore finished with five rebounds and four assists.

Katlyn Sawyer and Kessa Wilson each had double-doubles for the Indians. Sawyer wound up with 11 points and 11 rebounds, while Wilson collected 10 points and 14 boards.

Emily Sanchez handed out seven assists for the Tribe.

“They came out and hit everything,” South Bend coach Gary Wilson said of the Tribe. “I was real proud of the girls the way they came back.”

South Bend entertains Wahkiakum in a non-leaguer tonight. North Beach hosts Ocosta on Friday.

South Bend 11 9 12 11 — 43

North Beach 17 17 9 6 — 49

JV — South Bend won in overtime.

Vikings 57, Navigators 33

MENLO — Willapa Valley pulled away in the final three quarters to overpower Northwest Christian in Pacific League play on Tuesday at Tenoski Gym.

The Vikings (4-0, 10-2) controlled play after a tight first quarter, but winning coach Matt Bannish said the contest was more tightly fought than the score indicated.

“Our press started bothering them, finally, and we got some easy transition buckets,” Bannish said. “They have good size and their size bothered us.”

Karli Friese paced the Vikings with 16 points. Her cousin Lauren contributed nine points, eight rebounds and six assists. Brooke Harden led Valley rebounders with 10. Megan Sanaski had five steals.

Valley visits Raymond in a battle of league unbeatens Friday.

N.W. Christian 15 4 7 7 — 33

Gulls 50, Comets 40

RAYMOND — Hailee Williams and Aiysha Garcia contributed double-doubles as Raymond beat Naselle in a Pacific League game Tuesday at Raymond.

Williams finished with 16 points and 10 rebounds. She also had six steals — four in the first quarter as the Gulls (4-0, 7-4) led 15-6 and never looked back.

Garcia added 10 points and 10 boards. Sydney Flemetis was cited for her reserve contribution.

The Gulls, who had failed to crack the 50 percent barrier in foul shooting this season, canned 13 of 16 from the stripe in this contest. Raymond coach Jon Schray also appreciated the fast start.

“It was nice not to have to dig it out in the fourth quarter, as we did against Rainier and South Bend in the last two games,” Schray said.

Katie Green paced Naselle with 19 points.

The Gulls host Willapa Valley in a league showdown Friday.

Naselle 6 6 9 19 — 40

Eagles 44, Loggerettes 26

WISHKAH — Three Rivers Christian capitalized on Wishkah’s slow start to hand the Loggerettes a non-league defeat Tuesday at Brian Eager Memorial Gym.

The Loggerettes (1-6) trailed 13-2 after one quarter and could never catch up.

“We’re really struggling with consistency,” Wishkah coach Katherine Butcher said. “Every game we’ve seen real progress with the girls, but we’re still trying to find consistency.”

Three Rivers’ Jessie Caddel led all scorers with 16 points.

Wishkah’s Ryan Anderson tallied a team-high eight points. The Loggerettes demonstrated improved rebounding, with Chrissy Rurup pulling down 10 and Eliza Kinnaman eight.

The Loggerettes journey to Oakville on Thursday.
