Vikings 52, Gulls 41
RAYMOND — Karli Friese scored 13 points as Willapa Valley took undisputed possession of the Pacific League girls basketball lead by holding off rival Raymond on Friday at Raymond.
Lauren Friese contributed nine points to lead the Vikings (5-0, 11-2). The Gulls (4-1, 7-5) fell to second.
Brooke Harden pulled down seven rebounds and Lauren Friese grabbed six rebounds for Valley.
“We played well in the first quarter,” said Valley coach Matt Bannish. “We had a 17-point lead and they (the Gulls) got it to within six points. It could have gone either way. I was pleased with our well-balanced scoring, six players scoring in double figures.”
Bannish praised the overall play of Sydney Wilkeson off the bench.
Hailee Williams led the Gulls with 20 points, four steals and four rebounds. Winter Newman pulled down eight rebounds.
“It was a good rivalry game,” said RHS head coach Jon Schray. “Valley came out hot in the first quarter and we had to adjust our defense to slow them down. We were down 17 points in the third quarter and pulled to within six in the fourth quarter with 2 1/2 minutes to go. I felt like we played great defense. I was proud of our young kids.”
Schray praised Jaislin Heckard for a great night off the bench offensively and defensively.
On Thursday, Raymond hits the road to Northwest Christian. Valley makes the short trip to Koplitz Fieldhouse that same night.

OYEHUT — North Beach survived frigid shooting to beat Ocosta in a Pacific League contest Friday night at Oyehut.
The Hyaks (3-3, 4-6) shot 18 percent from the field and 27 percent from the foul line. They did, however, limit the Wildcats to 16 percent marksmanship.
“Realistically, defensively we were really tough tonight. We’re getting better every game,” North Beach coach Brett Mackey said. “Offensively, we’re inconsistent. We did a better job of making the extra pass in the first half. We still got shots. We just didn’t knock them down.”

MATLOCK — Sixth-ranked Neah Bay capitalized on turnovers in the final six minutes of the game to outlast Mary M. Knight in non-league play on Friday at Matlock.
