Boys basketball

Eagles 58, Warriors 51

ROCHESTER — Tied at 36 after three quarters, Elma produced its best quarter of the game to hold off host Rochester in this Evergreen 1A matchup on Wednesday night.

Ryan Collin led all scorers with 19 points, Chance Bremer added a double-double — 13 points and 13 rebounds — and Ray Stark knocked home a pivotal 3-pointer with 2 minutes left in the contest to help the Eagles (9-2, 11-7) to victory.

“We didn’t play with a lot of urgency, a bit of a funk, in the first half,” Elma head coach Marvin Prince said. “I’m proud of the kids for responding in the second half. We’re not going to be dominating every night, so I’m happy with the way they came out and did what they needed to do to win.”

Prince cited Rashad Lorton for contributing good minutes for the team down the stretch.

Tonight, Elma heads to Hoquiam.
