Thursday’s 2B Girls BB: Tigers Topple Trojans 57-26

NAPAVINE — The Tigers pounced out to an 18-0 lead after just one quarter here Thursday night and didn’t look back until they’d bounced all the way to a 57-26 victory over Pe Ell in Central 2B League girls basketball action.

Napavine’s Melissa Lee led all scorers with 20 points, Mollie Olson rolled up a double-double effort with 17 points and 11 rebounds, and Becca Snaza added 10 points. All told the Tigers had seven players etch their name in the scorebook.

“That was huge tonight to have that many decimals in the scoring column. To do that at this point in the season is pretty huge. Now we just have to see what happens here in a couple weeks,” said Napavine coach Jeremy Landram. “It was a really good team effort.”

Landram said there was no extraordinary effort or top secret game plan that led to the telling 18-0 first quarter. Rather, his team was just sound on their fundamentals.

“Our defense was just solid and we were able to get some turnovers and some runouts,” said Landram. “The girls did a pretty good job of containing them and limiting them to one shot.”

Landram added that, “Xoee Pope and Grace Bruneau did a really good job on the defensive end tonight. They got after it on the inside part of our zone.”

Dakota Brooks scored 8 points to pace Pe Ell.

Napavine (9-8, 9-4 league) plays at Morton-White Pass on Saturday with a 5:45 tipoff. Pe Ell (4-13, 3-10 league) hosts Onalaska on Saturday.
Lorton, Pirates Drop Ony

ADNA — The Pirates jumped out early and never looked back here Thursday night, drubbing Onalaska 67-24 in C2BL girls hoops action.

Kenya Lorton scored 22 points and Isabella Elwood scored 8 with a game-high 11 rebounds.

Lili Glover added 11 points, and Darian Humphrey scored 9 for the Pirates.

“We adjusted our press a little bit to the way they broke it the last time we played,” Adna coach Chris Bannish said, adding that Humphrey played her best game of the year. “If we can get her and Glover going to take pressure off the other three (Lorton, Elwood and Devanie Kleemeyer), that’ll be huge.”

The Pirates tallied 25 steals in the win. Adalee Sabin led Onalaska with 8 points.

Adna (16-2, 11-2) hosts Rainier in a boys/girls doubleheader on Saturday, with the girls game starting at 5:45. Onalaska (6-11, 5-8) plays at Pe Ell on Saturday.
Kalama Blows Past Winlock

WINLOCK — Kaelyn Shipley scored 23 points, and Kalama had a bit too much firepower inside for Winlock here Thursday in a 55-29 Central 2B League girls hoops win.

Parker Esary added 12 points for the Chinooks, who led 29-15 at halftime and outscored the Cardinals 16-2 in the third quarter.

“I thought we played a great first half and tried to keep it interesting,” Winlock coach Tori Nelson said. “Our backside help was pretty good, but the third quarter was brutal.”

Rianna Whitehead, who finished with a team-high 11 points for Winlock, picked up two quick fouls in the third quarter and the Cardinals’ scoring dried up.

“It just got a little out of control in the second half,” Nelson added.

Cheleena Squibb played well on defense guarding Esary — a 6-foot-1 post — throughout the game.

“She played her guts out. They always play hard,” Nelson added. “We’re just lacking skills on offense, and that hurts us.”

Winlock (3-13, 1-12 league) hosts Toledo on Saturday at 4 p.m. in the second game of a co-ed doubleheader.
Fighting Ducks Float On By Mossyrock

MOSSYROCK — Heading into the final quarter here Thursday night the Vikings were full of hope and only down by 3. When the final bell tolled they were plagued by a 17-point debt and searching for answers as Toutle Lake absconded with a 54-37 victory in Central 2B League girls hoops action.

“It was a good game for three quarters,” said Mossyrock coach Darin Bullock, who noted that the Ducks scored the final bucket of third quarter and then the first four baskets of the final frame in order to pull away for good. “They went on 10-0 run and we just never recovered. That just completely deflated us.”

Bullock said that his team had the will to win but too many crunch time turnovers became their ultimate undoing.

Ashlynn Dean led Toutle Lake in both scoring and rebounds with a game-high 19 points and eight boards while Kelsey Wason added 18 points.

One area where the Vikings did have an advantage was on the glass where they outrebounded Toutle Lake by a tally of 36-24. Paige Moorcroft led Mossyrock in both scoring and rebounding with a 14 points and eight rebounds.

“Moorcroft, she did a great job down low. We have a size advantage on them and so we were working hard to get the ball down low all night,” said Bullock, who noted that Moorcroft is averaging close to 10 rebounds per game. “Really Paige has done a great job this year of rebounding and being down there and has really accepted that role. It’s been great to watch her improve and excel at that.”

Ava Nelson added 11 points for Mossyrock and Lainee Grose chipped in 7 points, but it was the effort of Stephanie Fried that jumped out to Bullock.

“She did a good job of handling the full court pressure  and not trying to over think or do too much too often,” said Bullock of Fried. “She was definitely a ball hawk tonight. She was all over the place.”

Mossyrock (9-6, 7-6 league) will host Kalama for a boys and girls doubleheader on Saturday with boys tipping off at 5:45 p.m. and girls scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
Wahkiakum Tops Toledo

CATHLAMET — Wahkiakum scored 35 points in the first quarter and never looked back, defeating Toledo 76-37 in a Central 2B League basketball game here on Thursday.

Peyton Souvenir led all scorers with 29 points. Savannah Burdick added 11 points and Sydney Hansen chipped in 10 for the Mules.

Anna Tauscher led Toledo with 12 points.

Toledo trailed 56-24 at halftime.

“They really blitzed us right off the bat. They were red hot from the field and we couldn’t slow them down first quarter,” Toledo coach J.B. Ewers said. “They took it from there and cruised the rest of the way. It took us too long to settle down.”

Toledo (6-11, 4-9 league) travels to face Winlock on Saturday at 4 p.m. in a C2BL matchup, in the second game of a co-ed twinbill.

Timberwolves Comeback to Defeat Rainier at Buzzer

RAINIER — Morton-White Pass was down 21-5 after the first quarter but got a game-winning 3-pointer from Jacie Dunlap here Thursday night for a 44-42 C2BL win over Rainier.

Dunlap led all scorers with 18 points. Hannah Smathers added 9 points and Kyla Goble chipped in 9 points and a team-high nine rebounds.

Rainier was led by Nicole Francis with 12 points. Taylor Holmes added 11 points and 10 rebounds and Sophie Beadle scored 11.

The first quarter was all Rainier, as the Mountaineers led 10-0 to start the game and 21-5 after one quarter, and scored the first basket of the second quarter for an 18-point lead.

“We had a horrible first quarter. We’d been playing man-to-man and that was not getting it done,” MWP coach Tony Griffith said. “We switched to a three-quarter court zone-trap and spent the second quarter and third catching up.”

The Timberwolves only allowed 2 points in the second quarter and cut the advantage to 31-29 going into the fourth.

Rainier scored a bucket with 12 seconds left to go ahead by 1, and MWP called a timeout with 2.5 seconds left and ran a sideline out-of-bounds play, with Dunlap nailing the shot for the win.

“We got a lot of turnovers and changed the tone of the game,” Griffith said. “It took us both those quarters to get back into the game.”

MWP (6-11, 3-10 league) hosts Napavine in Morton on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. as part of a boys-girls doubleheader.
