Tuesday’s 2B GBB: Trojans Wake Up in Second Half to Beat Rainier, Seal Playoff Bid

PE ELL — The first half was less than spectacular for the Trojans, but the third quarter more than made up for it.

Pe Ell trailed 8-4 at the break here Tuesday, but scored 17 in the third quarter to come back and beat Rainier 34-23 in Central 2B League girls basketball action.

The win secured a spot in the District 4 2B Girls Basketball Tournament for Pe Ell.

“We lacked some confidence in the first half because we missed a lot of bunnies,” Trojan coach Chris Phelps said. “From that point on, we looked to pass instead of attack, and in the second half we finally got some shots to fall.”

Chloe Zock was a big part of that shift, hitting a pair of 3-pointers in the third quarter to spark the Trojans’ offense.

“We attacked the basket and got to the free-throw line and built some momentum,” Phelps said. “At that point we played with courage that we lacked, and that’s something we’ve been waiting to see for some time.”

Dakota Brooks led the Trojans with 16 points — all in the second half — and pulled down 10 rebounds. Alli Justice was a standout defensively, Phelps added.

Pe Ell (5-14, 4-11 league) plays at Adna to conclude the regular season on Thursday.

Note: Tuesday’s game was senior night for the Trojans, who honored Brooks, Railey Smith, Chloe Zock, Alicia Baldwin, Danielle McCarty, and Sudie Blankenship, who was unavailable to play due to an illness.
Tigers Claw Through Loggers

ONALASKA — Napavine scored 22 points in the first quarter, paving the way for a 54-24 win over Onalaska in Central 2B League hoops action here on Tuesday.

Mollie Olson led all scorers with 22 points, and Melissa Lee added 14 for the Tigers.

Abigal Bogar led the Loggers with seven points and 10 rebounds.

Onalaska couldn’t find their shot on Tuesday, shooting just 9 of 51 from the field, including 1 of 16 from behind the arc.

“We had a tough first quarter. We did not shoot well, we had a really hard time putting the ball in the basket today,” Onalaska coach Dracy McCoy said. “They ran the ball well, Olson and Lee. We had a hard time getting back.”

Napavine led 22-3 after the first quarter, and the Tigers padded the advantage to 36-8 at halftime to cruise to the win in the second half. Lucy Sevilla added 8 points and shot well for the Tigers, according to coach Jeremy Landram.

Onalaska (7-12, 6-9 league) hosts Morton-White Pass on Thursday in C2BL game. Napavine (11-8, 11-4 league) closes out the regular season at Rainier on Thursday.
Pirates Start Hot to Down MWP

RANDLE — The Pirates used a 24-point first quarter to put plenty of space between themselves and the Timberwolves in a 62-24 C2BL girls hoops win here Tuesday night.

Devanie Kleemeyer paced Adna with 16 points and seven rebounds. Kenya Lorton added 15 points and five boards, and Sam Foster chipped in 8 points.

The Pirates’ pressure was too much for MWP, according to coach Tom Griffith.

“We don’t handle the pressure very well, and turned the ball over a lot of times,” Griffith said. “And then you couple that with our poor shooting percentage and it just kind of snowballs on you.”

Adna led 24-6 after a quarter and 40-10 by halftime.

Taylor Nilius led MWP with 9 points, but the Timberwolves shot just 22 percent (9 of 41) from the field. Adna held a 34-16 rebounding advantage in the win.

Morton-White Pass (6-13, 3-12 league) plays at Onalaska on Thursday. Adna (18-2, 13-2 league) hosts Pe Ell on Thursday.
Vikings Vex Cards

WINLOCK — Lainee Grose led the way for Mossyrock Tuesday night with 16 points as the Vikings downed Winlock by a score of 54-33 in Central 2B League girls basketball.

Winlock was able to hang around for most of the game and trailed by just nine points headed into the final frame but the Vikings used an 18-6 fourth quarter to seal the deal.

For the game Mossyrock made 19 of 49 field goal attempts and 12 of 25 free throws while Winlock sank 12 of 41 shots and just 4 of 8 freebies.

Grose scored all 16 of her points in the first half and shot 11 free throws in the second quarter alone for Mossyrock.

“We let her get a little hot in the second quarter by letting her get to the free throw line,” said Winlock coach Tori Nelson.

Stephanie Fried added 11 points for Mossyrock while Paige Moorfcroft netted 6.

“I think the score is worse that it really was,” noted Nelson, who noted that the end of the fourth quarter got a little sloppy. “We didn’t quite come ready to play. We hung with them in the first half alittle bit and then struggled to score in the second half and really didn’t take care of the basketball.”

Winlock’s Rianna Whitehead led all scorers with 18 points while Cheleena Squibb notched 8 points and seven rebounds. Maggie Howsden also gathered seven boards for Winlock.

Nelson said she was proud of a few gritty defensive plays from her team, particularly from Squibb and Kaitlyn Dunlap.

“Shaleena and Kaitlyn took a couple of charges, which is something that we’re pretty proud of,” explained Nelson. “We play hard every game, sometime we just don’t play very smart.”

Winlock (4-14, 2-14 league) hosts Toutle Lake on Thursday.
Toledo Takes Aim, Misses Ducks

TOUTLE — A dud of a third quarter prevented Toledo from hatching out a victory in the Fighting Ducks’ Nest as Toutle Lake prevailed 52-47 in their Central 2B girls basketball contest here Tuesday night.

Heading into that fateful third period Toledo actually held a 34-27 advantage when a paltry two point quarter allowed Toutle Lake to take a five point lead. It was a margin would hold out for the rest of the game.

“Well we had probably our best first half of the season and then came out in the third quarter and I think we were playing not to lose instead of playing to win,” said Toledo coach J.B. Ewers. “We were really just hesitant in that third quarter and Toutle Lake turned up their defense on us and we did not respond very well.”

Toutle Lake was led in scoring by Kelsey Wason and Ashlynn Dean 16 points each and Michelle Perrigo added 11 points. The Ducks were without star guard Britzy Hockett.

Ewers said a hit and miss rebounding effort contributed to his team’s ultimate demise.

“We gave up a lot of second chance points especially to Perigo. She’s a 6 foot center for them and probably all of her points were on putbacks,” said Ewers. “We did fairly well just too many second chance points.”

Anna Tauscher paced Toledo with 16 points and eight rebounds while Kal Schaplow chipped in 10 points and Rylan Richardson added 8 points and six rebounds.

“Rylon Richardson really came alive for us today,” noted Ewers. “We’re always needing that second or third scorer and today Rylon was the one who came out and helped us out.”

Toledo (6-13, 4-11 league) will travel to Kalama on Thursday.

Note: Wahkiakum beat Kalama, 56-53, in Kalama on Tuesday night to improve to 17-0 in league play (19-0 overall) and seal the Central 2B League championship. Peyton Souvenir led the Mules with 22 points, 13 rebounds and four assists, while Kaelyn Shipley led Kalama with 25 points. Parker Esary added 19 points and 15 rebounds for the Chinooks, who dropped to 13-2 in league play.
