Thursday’s Prep Boys Basketball: Pe Ell Earns First Win Over South Bend

Pe Ell Earns First Win Over South Bend

WILLAPA VALLEY — Kaleb McCalden recorded a double-double to lead the Trojans to their first win of the season, 65-61, over South Bend in the Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Tournament here on Thursday.

Colton Nelson scored 13 points and Kobe Hoffman added 12 points. Pe Ell coach Chris Fitzgerald said it was Nelson’s best game of the year year.

The Indians led 46-41 going into the fourth quarter, but Pe Ell outscored South Bend 25-15 to take the lead and earn the win.

“We played a good fourth quarter. Overall, it wasn’t bad. First half, we couldn’t make a bucket and got behind by 10,” Fitzgerald said. “We battled back, slowly but surely. We didn’t play poorly. We’re trying too hard to get a win instead of just playing the game.”

McCalden was named a tournament all-star after recording a double-double in both of the Trojans’ games.

Pe Ell (1-8, 0-5) travels to Wahkiakum on Tuesday for a Central 2B League game.
Pirates Win Chelan Holiday Tournament

CHELAN — Adna put together an impressive third quarter here Thursday night to beat the host Goats, 70-47, for the boys championship in the Chelan Holiday Tournament.

The Pirates led 33-24 at halftime, but held the Goats to just 3 points — scored on a long attempt at the end of the shot clock — in the third quarter to pull ahead by 28.

“We had a pretty good offensive first half, but we weren’t really happy defensively, and we really clamped down in the third quarter,” Adna coach Luke Salme said. “I was really proud of our defensive effort. It was tremendous.”

Lyle Metzenberg, a 6-foot-5 junior forward, led the Pirates with 17 points.

“He was terrific. They’re probably as big and athletic inside as anybody we’ve played,” Salme said, “and he just keeps getting better and better.”

Cody Young and Trevor Thornburg each added 12 for Adna, while Conner Weed and Blake Davis scored 9 apiece.

Connor Wilson led Chelan (4-6) with 26 points, but the Goats shot just 32 percent (17 of 54) from the floor.

Adna (8-1, 4-1 Central 2B League) plays at Mossyrock on Tuesday.
T-Wolves Pull Away Late to Beat La Salle

YAKIMA — Morton-White Pass got off to a slow start, but put things in order in the fourth quarter for a 62-44 win over La Salle here Thursday on Day 1 of the SunDome Shootout boys basketball tournament.

Matt Poquette scored 24 points with 11 rebounds to pace the Timberwolves, who trailed 30-27 at halftime.

“We were a little lethargic. We just didn’t come out of the gates playing very well,” MWP coach Tony Gillispie said. “It’s probably the worst start we’ve had this year.”

The Timberwolves, though, outscored the Lightning 23-6 in the fourth quarter to pull away, with Poquette holding La Salle guard Kieran Kershaw — who led his team with 16 points — scoreless in the fourth quarter.

“In the end, that’s kind of what won the game for us,” Gillispie said.

Kade Gillispie went 3 for 3 from long range to score 15 points, and Tristan Storey added 12 points for MWP.

Morton-White Pass (7-1) faces defending State 2B champion Kittitas at noon on Friday, back in Yakima.
Raymond Flies Past Onalaska

RAYMOND — The Loggers started hot but slowed down in the second quarter of a 51-37 loss to the hosts here Thursday in a boys game of the Raymond Holiday Classic.

Onalaska led 16-11 after a quarter, but a quick 6-point swing at the end of the second frame — helped along by a bit of Logger foul trouble — left Raymond up 28-20 at halftime.

“We had a nice start to the game,” Logger coach Dennis Bower said. “And then, I don’t know if it’s our youth, but one mistake kind of snowballs.”

Onalaska was unable to get the lead below 6 points in the second half.

Marcus Anderson led Raymond (5-5) with 15 points. Alex Frazier scored 17 to lead the Loggers.

“They’re playing hard, and they’re coachable,” Bower said of his team, which started three sophomores and a freshman on Thursday. “I think we’re getting better, and the kids are playing hard.”

Onalaska (2-5) faces Darrington at 4 p.m. on Friday, back in Raymond.
Bearcats Hold Off Lakewood

YAKIMA — Brandon White scored 17 points, and W.F. West held off Lakewood, 52-48, here Thursday in the SunDome Shootout boys basketball tournament.

Tyler Speck added 11 points, and Colby White chipped in with 9 points for the Bearcats.

W.F. West (6-2) faces Burlington-Edison at 3 p.m. on Friday, back in Yakima.
Napavine Downs Muckleshoot Tribal

AUBURN — Jordan Purvis scored 32 points, and Napavine held off Muckleshoot Tribal School 88-79 here Thursday in a nonleague boys basketball game.

Purvis added 12 rebounds, and Peyton Stanley scored 24 for the Tigers.

Napavine led 32-13 after a quarter, but the host Kings scored 50 in the second half to close the gap and keep things interesting.

Napavine (6-1, 4-1 Central 2B League) plays a nonleague game at Castle Rock on Saturday in another nonleague game.
