Friday’s Boys Basketball: Toledo Holds Off Adna 35-30

By The Chronicle

TOLEDO — It was by no means a shootout, but the Indians held off Adna, 35-30, here Friday night in a matchup featuring half of the undefeated teams left in the Central 2B League standings.

Westin Wallace scored late in the fourth quarter to put Toledo up 33-30, and a pair of free throws by Brian Wood in the final seconds iced the win.

Neither team shot particularly well, with Toledo going 14 of 46 (30 percent) and Adna converting 25 percent of its shot (11 of 44).

“That’s what I wish for every game, on the defensive end,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon noted. “We missed some looks and rushed some shots, and they’re physical and played good defense.”

Fano Arceo-Hansen led Toledo with 14 points, including all seven of the Indians’ third-quarter points, and grabbed eight rebounds. Wallace finished with eight points and added eight blocked shots and seven rebounds.

Lyle Metzenberg paced Adna with 11 points, and Austen Apperson added nine.

The teams combined to go 6 of 9 at the free throw line.

“It was a classic playoff atmosphere, loud, and a close game,” Fallon added. “I thought the officials did a great job, letting us play, like they do in the playoffs, so I’m sure we’ll see games like that in the playoffs.”

Fallon added that Hayden Farbo played well defensively against Apperson, the Pirates’ hot-shooting senior guard.

Toledo (14-2, 6-0 league) plays at Winlock on Tuesday. Adna (12-4, 6-1 league) hosts Toutle Lake (7-0 league) on Wednesday.

Ilwaco Runs Past Trojans 79-42

ILWACO — The Fishermen ran out to a 29-9 lead after a quarter and never looked back, topping Pe Ell 79-42 here Friday night in Pacific 2B League boys hoops action.

Alex Kaino led Ilwaco (10-5) with 18 points. John Glenn and Joe Nisbett each added 17 and Reese Tynkila chipped in 12.

“They looked pretty dang good,” Pe Ell coach Chris Fitzgerald said of Ilwaco. “They share the ball real well and they ran the floor like mad dogs in that first half.”

Ilwaco led 48-17 at halftime.

Max Smith led Pe Ell with nine points. Jeremiah Yost added eight.

Pe Ell (0-15) hosts Northwest Christian (12-3) on Thursday.

Loggers Beat MWP for First League Win

ONALASKA — Carter Whitehead, Cade Lawrence and Kayden Allison combined for all but two of the Loggers’ points as Onalaska beat Morton-White Pass, 51-49, here Friday night.

It was the first Central 2B League win of the season for the Loggers (8-8, 1-6 league).

Whitehead led all scorers with 20 points. Allison added 16 with eight rebounds and Lawrence added 13.

“It was fun,” Logger coach Wayne Nelson said. “They brought some fans, we had some fans. It was fun for our guys.”

Kaleb Rashoff led MWP with 15 points. Dylan Richards added 13.

The Loggers led 24-23 at halftime, though the lead never got beyond seven points.

Nelson praised the play of senior guard A.J. Volk, and added that Whitehead, Allison and Lawrence all played well on both ends of the court.

“It was a great game, and a good win for our guys,” Nelson said.

Onalaska plays at Wahkiakum on Wednesday. MWP (9-7, 2-5 league) hosts Mary M. Knight in a non-league game in Morton on Saturday.

Chinooks Wear Down Winlock

WINLOCK — Kalama took control in the second half and pulled away for a 63-51 win over Winlock here Friday in C2BL boys hoops action.

The Cardinals held Kalama to five points in the second frame, but gave up 40 after the intermission.

“The second quarter was outstanding, defensively, for us,” Winlock coach Nick Bamer said. “But the third quarter we let them not only get back in the game, but they took the lead and we just kind of got out-physicaled and gave up too many key shots down the stretch.”

Sophomore guard Landon Tiemens led Winlock with 15 points. Coleson Richendollar added 13.

Freshman Jackson Esary led Kalama with 18 points.

Winlock (5-10, 3-3 league) hosts Toledo on Wednesday.

Toutle Lake Leaves Tigers All Wet

TOUTLE — The Ducks scored 37 second half points here Friday night in order to erase an eight point halftime deficit and defeat Napavine 61-52 in Central 2B League boys basketball play.

“We just did a really good job in the first half of defending them and contesting their shots and controlling the tempo but in the second half they hit some shots and were able to speed us. It was just a combination of things that got us off our game,” said Napavine coach Rex Stanley.

The Tigers jumped out to a 15-11 lead after one quarter and topped the Ducks 17-13 heading into the intermission. Napavine’s Dawson Stanley led all scorers with 23 points while Cade Evander added seven points and a team-high 10 rebounds. Keith Olson just missed another double-double with 11 points and nine rebounds.

However, a 24-point outburst by the home team in the third quarter set up their victory at the wire as the Ducks bested Napavine 13-5 in the final frame.

Toutle Lake big man Mike Adams led his team with 17 points and 13 rebounds. Broc Keeton added 16 points for the Ducks while Logan Grabenhorst tallied 14 points.

“They are the most skilled team in the league I think. They’ve always got five guys out there who can score on you,” noted Stanley.

Stanley pointed out the difference in the game could be found at the free throw line where his team hit six of 14 shots and Toutle Lake knocked down 17 of 21 shots.

“We’ve just got to be better about playing defense without fouling. Especially when they are in the bonus,” Stanley said.

He also noted that the Ducks benefited when both Evander and Olson picked up their fourth fouls near the junction of the third and fourth quarters.

“Evander played really good defense tonight. He did really well guarding Adams, and that’s no small task,” noted Stanley.

Napavine (9-7, 4-2) will host Kalama on Wednesday.
