Pirates Ward Off Napavine in Slugfest

ADNA — The Pirates held on down the stretch here Friday night, edging out Napavine 45-43 in a Central 2B League boys basketball contest.

Fittingly, on senior night, Austen Apperson figured heavily in the Pirates’ win. The senior scored a team-high 19 points and poured in 13 of those in the third quarter, helping Adna overcome a three-point halftime deficit and take a two-point lead into the final stanza.

“He just took over, offensively,” Adna coach Luke Salme said.

Lyle Metzenberg added eight points and 14 rebounds for the winners, who held a 31-20 advantage on the glass.

Cole Fay, Salme added, played well on Tiger leading scorer Dawson Stanley, who finished with 19 points. Cade Evander added 12 for Napavine.

“I know Dawson got 19, but he had to work for them all,” he said.

The Tigers had beaten Adna, 70-64, back on Jan. 7, but went with a man-to-man defense on Friday night and put in more work on the boards, Salme said.

“The biggest difference is we got outrebounded by 10 there, and this time we outrebounded them by 11,” he said. “That was the main point of emphasis coming into tonight.”
The Pirates celebrated senior night for upperclassmen Apperson, Metzenberg, Trevor Minkoff, Camden Ryan, Matthew Scheuber, and Brady Collins.

“What a great way for those guys to go out,” Salme added.

Adna (13-5, 6-2 league) will play at Kalama on Tuesday. Napavine (10-8, 5-3 league) hosts Winlock on Tuesday.

 

Toledo Tops Kalama to Stay Unbeaten in C2BL

KALAMA — Toledo’s defense came up big in the second quarter, and the Indians stayed undefeated in Central 2B League play with a 48-38 win over the Chinooks here Friday night.

Fano Arceo-Hansen scored 19 points and added 10 rebounds for Toledo, which improved to 8-0 in league play.

The Indians held Kalama to just four points in the second quarter and led 21-14 at halftime, before the Chinooks switched to a zone late in the game to keep things interesting.

“My guys held their composure,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “We were patient.”

Alex Dyer led Kalama with 19 points, including a trio of three-pointers in the fourth quarter.

Westin Wallace added 12 points and nine rebounds for Toledo.

The Indians (16-2) host Toutle Lake on Tuesday night in a game to determine the Central 2B League champion. The Ducks beat Toledo in a non-league game, 50-46, on Dec. 11.

 

Loggers Chop Vikings Down

ONALASKA — The Loggers went wild in the second half here Friday night as they defeated Mossyrock 89-47 in a Central 2B League boys basketball matchup.

Onalaska jumped out to a 14-7 lead after one quarter of play and then scored 24, 25, and 26 points the next three periods to close out the rivalry rout. They shot 46 percent from the field on 77 shots and Carter Whitehead led all scorers with 20 points while adding seven assists for the Loggers.

“We made 12 threes. We got some breaks and we moved the ball really well,” said Onalaska coach Wayne Nelson. “We like to play against Mossyrock. It’s good. Our guys like competing against them.”

Ashton Haight added 12 points for the Loggers while AJ Volk, Danny Dalstead, and Kayden Allison scored nine points each. David Fritch scored eight points for the Loggers and grabbed a team-high nine rebounds.

Onalaska topped Mossyrock 38-17 in the rebounding battle.

Nelson was happy with the performance of his upperclassmen on senior night in the old mill town. The Loggers honored Kyle Hamilton, David Fritch and AJ Volk before the game.

“They all made a nice contribution tonight,” said Nelson.

Onalaska (9-9, 2-7 league) will host Hoquiam on Monday.
