Metzenberg Dominant in Adna Win Over Onalaska

Metzenberg scored 25 points and grabbed 17 rebounds. He also had five blocks and four steals.

“He rose to the challenge. We were asking him to be more aggressive and he was,” Adna coach Luke Salme said. “He can be a very effective 6’5 post for us. I hope we get used to him putting up numbers like that once in a while.”

Trevor Minkoff tallied 15 points for the Pirates. Ashton Haight scored 10 points to lead the Loggers.

The Pirates shot 42 percent from the field compared to the Loggers 37 percent shooting.

It was more of the same in the second half, with the Pirates outscoring the Loggers 36-27.

“I’m happy with it. It’s a different head coach but they are still playing the same way,” Salme said. “They defend their butts off. We won each by four to six points and that’s what we were hoping for.”

Adna (4-1, 1-0) hits the road to face Rainier on Tuesday while Onalaska (4-3, 0-1) hosts Winlock on Tuesday in a C2BL contest.

Morton-White Pass Takes Down Winlock

Kaleb Rashoff led MWP with 15 points and Hayden Young added 10 points.

Bryce Cline led all scorers with 16 points for Winlock.

According to Winlock coach Nick Bamer, the difference came down to rebounding.

“They beat us on the glass. Offensive rebounds, that was the key to the game coming in. They wanted it a little more than we did, hats off to them,” Bamer said. “We did a pretty good job defensively at times. When we were sticking to the game plan, we did really well.”

Winlock led 12-7 after one quarter but MWP regrouped and won the second quarter and took a 20-18 lead at halftime.

The T-Wolves won the third quarter by one point, but took over the fourth quarter 15-9 to preserve the win.

Duece Kolb led the Vikings with 11 points.

Grant Vandenberg led all scorers with 16 points and Montego Mercer added 14 points for the Chinooks.

Kalama scored 27 points in the first quarter and held Mossyrock to single digit scoring in all four quarter to claim the victory.

“We did a lot better rebounding yesterday then we have all season. We blocked out much harder. It was the same story, we’re physically outmatched by everybody right now,” Mossyrock coach Jordan Hunter said. “We’re working toward some better games for us.”

Hunter was pleased to see the performance by Nick Fried, playing in his first basketball game in two years and contributing four points against the Chinooks.

Mossyrock (0-6, 0-1) hosts Toutle Lake on Tuesday in a C2BL game.

Hawks Edge Tigers

LACEY — Michael Ajoge recorded a double-double for the Tigers, but it wasn’t enough as River Ridge won 67-60 in a non-league boys basketball game here on Saturday.

Ajoge scored 29 points and grabbed 15 rebounds. Malakai Emmons recorded 14 points.

“He played very well down low. We got the ball into the post and they really didn’t have an answer for him,” Centralia coach Kyle Donahue said. “He had a lot of points in the first half. We could have got the ball to him a little more in the second half. He rebounded very well and was a very good physical presence for us.”

Lamar Campbell had 22 points to lead River Ridge.

The big key was free throws, with the Tigers making just 5 of 22 shots from the charity stripe.

“They did not shoot the ball well in the first half. They made some threes in the second half,” Donahue said. “We got to the free throw line but couldn’t make them. That changed how the game went going down the stretch.”

It was all Tigers in the first half, as Centralia led by five after one quarter and stretched the lead to 39-26 at halftime. River Ridge scored 21 points in the third quarter and added 20 points in the fourth quarter while holding Centralia to just 21 total points in the second half to come from behind and earn the win.

Donahue noted the performance of Tyler Milton coming off the bench and scoring six points. He also noted the floor game by Garrett Strophy and the effort put forth by Emmons on Saturday.

Centralia (0-7) hits the road on Thursday to face North Thurston in a non-league game.
