Mules Kick Past Pirates

ADNA — The Pirates came out strong, scoring 22 points in the first quarter, but couldn’t keep the lead in a 67-58 loss to Wahkiakum here Friday night in non-league 2B boys basketball action.

Braden Thomas led Adna in scoring with 16 points and added 10 rebounds for a double-double.

Wahkiakum scored 23 points in the fourth quarter to finish out the win.

“Their kids stuck with it and shot it very well in the second half,” said Adna coach Luke Salme. “Especially from the three-point line.”

Chase Collins added 13 points and Zander Blankenship-Todd scored 12 for Adna. 

Cole Fay dished off five assists and added three points for Adna, with Abel Ingle chipping in six points.

Jake Leitz led Wahkiakum with 17 points, and Logan LaBerge added 15 points.

“We came out really well with tons of energy,” said Salme. “We just have to stay consistent and keep battling on defense, which we will.”

Adna (3-3) will face off against Ocosta on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in Adna.

 

Bearcats Survive Late Washougal Charge

WASHOUGAL — Tyler Speck secured a scoring milestone here on Friday as he helped propel W.F. West to a 58-55 road win over Washougal in a non-league boys basketball affair.

Speck used five 3-pointers to reach a game-high 29 points and surpass the 500-point mark for his career. The senior now needs to make just three more long balls in order to reach 100 for his career. 

W.F. West outscored Washougal 20-11 in the second quarter in order to take a 34-27 lead into intermission, but the Panthers refused to slink away quietly. Washougal outscored the Bearcats by a point in the third quarter and three points in the final frame but still came up one three-pointer shy of sending the game to overtime.

Jakob Davis scored 13 points for Washougal while Donovan Bailey added 12. 

Dirk Plakinger added 14 points in the win while Carter McCoy dumped in eight points. W.F. West managed to knock down 53 percent of their shots from the field while holding Washougal under 37 percent shooting.

W.F. West (5-1) will play north Kitsap at 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 27 at the Wilbur-Ellis Sundome Shootout.

Seaside Flies Past Centralia

SEASIDE — The Tigers ran into a tough test against the hosts of the Seaside Holiday Classic here Friday night, falling behind early and never recovering in a 73-42 loss.

Matt House scored 15 points to lead the Tigers, with Derek Beairsto chipping in eight points and nine rebounds.

“Derek had a really solid game,” Tiger coach Kyle Donahue said. “He’s a kid that’s been consistent and he works hard. Rebounding-wise, he works really hard.”

Seaside led 22-7 after a quarter, and held Centralia to just 24 field-goal attempts.

Thursday’s Games

Wolverines Pummel Pe Ell

PE ELL — Northwest Christian shot their way to a 72-38 win over the Trojans here on Thursday in non-league boys basketball action.

The Wolverines shot 55 percent from the field on the way to the win, with three players in double figures. Noah Phillips scored a game-high 23 points in the win while Jude Phillips notched 17 points. Davis Yates added 13 points for Northwest Christian.

On the flip side, Pe Ell never scored more than 11 points in any quarter and shot just under 37 percent from the field, while attempting not a single foul shot. 

“I can’t explain it. I mean, you expect to get to the line at least once when you shoot,” said Pe Ell coach Clayburn Lusk, who noted that his team shot 42 freebies in its last game.

Kollin Jurek led Pe Ell in scoring with 12 points. Max Smith added nine points and a team-high five rebounds, and Wyatt Marrs scored eight points.

Noah Phillips led NWC with 23 points.
