Thursday’s 2B GBB: Dunlap, Dotson Lead MWP Past Ducks

TOUTLE — Jacie Dunlap scored 17 points, and Morton-White Pass built a big lead to beat Toutle Lake, 52-40, here Thursday in C2BL girls hoops action.

Sierra Dotson added 13 points and 14 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who led 33-16 at halftime.

“I was really happy with the effort in the first half,” MWP coach Tom Griffith said. “We kind of took our foot off the gas a little bit and didn’t play quite as hard (in the second half), but I think that’s attributed to the big halftime lead.”

Hannah Smathers added 9 points and eight rebounds, while Molly Donald led Toutle Lake (2-10, 2-8 league) with 21 points.

Griffith added that he’s been impressed, throughout the season, with his team’s even scoring distribution.

“It’s kind of been that way every night,” he said. “Our five starters are usually fairly balanced, so I’m happy with that.”

Morton-White Pass (8-6, 6-4 league) hosts Winlock on Monday in Randle.

 

Pirates Slow Down, but Can’t Stop, Wahkiakum

CATHLAMET — Wahkiakum took a big lead early and held on in a low-scoring 43-29 C2BL girls hoops win over Adna here Thursday night.

The Pirates, though, could take solace in the fact that they held the Mules — averaging a league-best 63 points a game — to just 18 points over the last two and a half quarters.

“We locked down defensively and played really well,” Adna coach Chris Bannish said. “To hold them in the 40s and only allow them to shoot 40 times is a credit to how well we rebounded defensively.”

Payton Aselton led Adna with 10 points, and Sam Foster grabbed 10 rebounds. Makaela Meister and Ellie Sliva both played well off the bench, Bannish added, noting that the reserves scored 10 of the Pirates’ 14 first-half point.

Macie Elliott and Ellie Leitz each scored 13 for Wahkiakum (12-3, 10-1 league).

Adna (8-7, 6-5 league) hosts Napavine on Tuesday.

 

Toledo Zips Past Rainier

TOLEDO — Kal Schaplow led an even Toledo offense, and the Indians crushed Rainier 57-33 here Thursday in C2BL girls basketball action.

Schaplow scored 11 points, while Haleigh Holmes added 10 for Toledo. The Indians led 13-2 after a quarter, and had eight different players score.

Alyssa Ewers added 7 points and Kyleigh Holmes scored 7 with eight rebounds.

“I was really happy with our balanced scoring,” Toledo coach Brian Layton said. “We had a lot of girls score, and I think when you can be balanced you’re tough to beat.”

Anna Tauscher added five assists for the Indians, and Sandra Miles led Rainier (0-14) with 15 points.

Toledo (11-4, 9-2 league) plays at Mossyrock on Tuesday.

 

Pe Ell Holds Off Winlock

WINLOCK — The Cardinals made a comeback attempt in the fourth quarter, but came up just short as Pe Ell won 33-28 in a Central 2B League girls basketball game here on Thursday.

Annika Mason led the Trojans with 12 points and Rachel Ward added 8 points. Winlock’s Cheleena Squibb scored 16 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

The key to the game was free throws, as Winlock was 10 of 30 from the free throw line.

“We made it interesting in the fourth. We got them into foul trouble, that really was the difference in the ball game,” Winlock coach Tori Nelson said. “I’m guessing turnovers were probably fairly even. It came down to a bunch of missed free throws. The effort was there. We ran a press that we don’t really run or work on. They were aggressive with that and it worked in our favor.”

Pe Ell led 8-2 after the first quarter and 14-8 at halftime. The Trojans built a 24-14 lead after three quarters, but Winlock didn’t go away and scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to try to come back, but it wasn’t enough.

Pe Ell (4-10, 4-7) travels to Morton on Tuesday to face Morton-White Pass after Winlock (2-12, 1-9) travels to Randle on Monday to take on the Lady Timberwolves in a makeup C2BL game.

 

Napavine Takes Down Mossyrock

MOSSYROCK — Melissa Lee scored 27 points and grabbed 9 rebounds to lead Napavine to a 64-35 win over Mossyrock in a Central 2B League girls basketball game here on Thursday.

Mollie Olson added 18 points for the Tigers. Mossyrock’s Lainee Grose scored 11 points and Paige Moorcroft added 6 points and 6 boards.

The Tigers jumped ahead 26-10 after the first quarter, but the offense slowed down in the second quarter, with Napavine leading 33-19 at halftime.
Napavine held Mossyrock to 4 points in the third quarter to take a commanding lead and cruise to the victory.

“We started out strong in the first few minutes. Our point guard got in foul trouble early and that changed the entire momentum and passing. We struggled with passing,” Mossyrock coach Autumn Moorcroft said. “The tempo changes with our point guard not in there. We got beat back on defense, they got a ton of easy lay-ins. We passed the ball right to their hands a lot, but I’m proud they didn’t give up. They kept working, working pretty hard, so it was great to see.”

Napavine (14-1, 11-0) travels to Adna on Tuesday while Mossyrock (11-3, 8-3) hosts Toledo on Tuesday in a C2BL contest.
