Wednesday’s 2B Boys Basketball: Hall, Dean Lead Cards Past Mossyrock

By The Chronicle
MOSSYROCK — Winlock got a pair of monster games from the boys down low and held off Mossyrock, 62-55, here Wednesday in Central 2B League boys hoops action.
Dawson Hall scored 22 points with 13 rebounds, and Wyatt Dean scored 19 with 14 boards for Winlock.
The Cardinals held a slim 24-21 advantage at halftime, but scored 21 in the third quarter to build a bit of breathing room.
Mossyrock, though, heated up in the fourth to keep it interesting.
“They made a few deep 3s on us to cut it down,” Winlock coach Nick Bamer said. “It was never a moment where we were safe. We stretched the lead out a few times, but they just kept fighting.”
Mossyrock cut the lead to 4 points with just over 30 seconds left, but turned the ball over after a steal and saw their shot at closing the gap further slip away.
Justin Gootgeld led Mossyrock with 22 points and Taylen Clevenger added 15.
Nicholas Patching added 14 points for the Cardinals.
Winlock (8-12, 6-9 league) plays at Toutle Lake to close out the regular season on Friday. The Cardinals will enter District 4 tournament play on Tuesday with a road game against a Pacific 2B League team.
Mossyrock (4-14, 2-13 league) wraps up the season at Wahkiakum on Friday.

Pirates Trap Timberwolves
ADNA — The Pirates shot exactly zero free throws here Wednesday night but still managed to run away with a 75-47 victory over Morton-White Pass in their Central 2B League boys basketball matchup.
The dearth of free throw attempts mattered little in the end as Adna jumped out to a 22-8 first quarter lead and pushed the margin to 39-21 by halftime. That potent offensive attack was buoyed by a 56 percent field goal percentage in the contest.
“Cody Young in the first quarter, it sounds like I’m on repeat, but just his intensity on the defensive end wound up getting us going,” said Adna coach Luke Salme, who noted his team forced 27 turnovers on the night. Young finished that first frame with 11 points and notched 19 points, six rebounds, six assists and four steals in the game.
Blake Davis led Adna with 26 points, including 8 of 12 shooting from 3-point land.
“They played some man to man but they also played quite a bit of zone. They’d had some success with it at their place so we kind of knew we’d have to adjust to that,” explained Salme.
The adjustment plan? Let Davis do his thing.
“Good luck finding a better 3-point shooter than Blake Davis. We told him going in to just shoot it if you’re open, buddy. We’ll take 8 of 12 shooting any day,” said Salme.
The win clinches a second-place finish in the C2BL for Adna, which closes out the regular season at home on Friday with Pe Ell. The Pirates will host Ocosta on Tuesday in the first round of the District 4 tournament.
Rylan Collette led Morton-White Pass with 18 points and Jonathan Elkins chipped in 8 points.
Morton-White Pass (11-8, 8-7 league) will travel to Onalaska on Friday. The Timberwolves are locked into sixth place in the standings, which means a district opener Tuesday night, most likely at Chief Leschi.

Tigers Torch Loggers
NAPAVINE — A stifling Tiger defensive effort kept Onalaska bogged down in the brush all night Wednesday as Napavine claimed a 62-30 victory in Central 2B League boys basketball action.
Napavine held Onalaska under 10 points in three of four quarter including just 5 points in the second frame. In the face of that pressure the Loggers made even numbers of field goals and free throws, knocking down 10 of 33 of the former and 10 of 17 of the latter.
On the flip side, Napavine knocked down 24 of 48 field goals and 8 of 13 tries from the charity stripe. The Tigers were paced in scoring by Peyton Stanley’s 15 points. Wyatt Stanley chipped in a neat double-double with 10 points and a game-high 13 rebounds, while Jordan Purvis added 11 points to the Tiger tally.
“I was just happy with our focus and the way we started the game. We were able to jump on them with a comfortable lead and get a lot of guys playing time,” said Napavine coach Rex Ashmore. “Everybody contributed. It was one of those games.”
Onalaska was led in scoring by Cody Cooper’s 18 points, while Matt Swett, Zach Huffman and Jack Beck added 4 apiece. Huffman also grabbed a team-high six rebounds.
Napavine (18-0, 15-0 league), which has clinched the league title, will play at home on Friday versus Rainier for senior night. Onalaska (3-12, 5-14 league) will host Morton-White Pass on Friday. The Loggers are currently sitting in 9th place in the Central 2B League. The Tigers and Loggers will have a rematch on Tuesday in Napavine in the first round of the District 4 tournament.

Toledo Hangs On Against Toutle Lake
TOUTLE — Reece Wallace scored 28 points and hit key free throws down the stretch, helping the Indians earn a 60-55 win over Toutle Lake here in Central 2B League basketball on Wednesday.
Wallace was 17 of 20 from the free throw line. Junior Arroyo added 5 points and a team-high seven rebounds. Nate Hoff led Toutle Lake with 17 points and Michael Adams chipped in 13 for the Ducks.
The teams had almost identical statistics, except for the Indians were able to get to the free throw line 34 times, converting 22 of those opportunities.
Toledo held a 2-point lead after the first quarter, but padded their lead in the second quarter, holding the Ducks to 9 points en route to a 31-21 halftime lead. The Indians led by as much as 14 in the second half, though Toutle cut the deficit to 4 in the final frame, but Toledo was able to hold on for the win.
“That second quarter, I thought our defense really stepped up,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “It was off rotations where we didn’t rotate quick enough. We were able to get stops and pull away a little bit. It was a good game, it was fun, close the whole way.”
Toledo (15-4, 12-3 league) hosts Kalama on Friday in a Central 2B League regular season finale. Toledo can lock up third place with a win, but will be in a three-way tie for third with a loss.

Rainier Eclipses Trojans
RAINIER — A 32-minute long defensive lapse by the Trojans allowed the Mountaineers to get the best of Pe Ell Wednesday night by a score of 67-47 in Central 2B League boys basketball.
“No defense tonight. That was our problem,” said Pe Ell coach Rich Mendes. “We got our first win the other night and I think they cashed it in after that and quit working hard. That’s alright. It is it what it is.”
Rainier shot 50 percent from the field and knocked down 7 of 9 free throws to gain the advantage on the scoreboard. They were led in scoring by Devan Stancil’s 23 points and Keaton Carlson’s 16 points.
For Pe Ell Zander Blankenship-Todd lead the way with 16 points.
“Our freshman is leading us in scoring and just on the court. It’s been that way for awhile now,” said Mendes.
Kaleb McCalden added 12 points for the Trojans and Kaelin Jurek posted 7 points.
Pe Ell (2-17, 1-14 league) will wrap up their season at Adna on Friday.
