CC Basketball: Lady Blazers Beat Portland; Walton Leads Edmonds Past Blazer Men

Lady Blazers Top Panthers in Lower Columbia Tournament

LONGVIEW — Centralia’s Kylie Smith recorded another double-double to lead the Lady Blazers to a 60-45 win over Portland at the Lower Columbia Holiday Classic.

Smith had 20 points and 10 rebounds. Kayla Howard scored 13 points and Courtney Kemble grabbed 11 rebounds.

The difference in the game was shooting, as Centralia shot 43.4 percent from the field while Portland was only able to convert 24.6 percent of their field goal attempts.

Centralia got off to a great start with an 18-9 lead after the first quarter, and expanding the lead to 37-21 at halftime. The Blazers outscored Portland 14-9 in the third quarter for enough cushion to cruise in the fourth.

Centralia (7-3) plays their first game of 2018 on Saturday, Jan. 6, traveling to Bellevue for a nonregional game.
Walton Leads Edmonds Past Centralia

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — Zach Walton had a typical big game, and Edmonds topped Centralia, 112-88, here Thursday in the first round of the Clackamas Holiday Invitational men’s basketball tournament.

Edmonds led 53-46 at halftime and shot 49 percent (41 of 84) from the field.

Taylor Peppinger and Austin Curry each scored 22 for Centralia, with Curry chipping in 11 rebounds. Collin Prangley came off the bench to score 16, and Marqus Gilson added 14 points.
