Saturday’s Prep Basketball: Whitehead Drops 30 to Help Loggers Fend Off MWP

Boys: Whitehead Drops 30 to Help Loggers Fend Off MWP

ONALASKA — Carter Whitehead scored 30 points and it was just enough to put the Loggers over the top against Morton-White Pass on Saturday in a non-league boys basketball affair.

Onalaska jumped out to a 21-11 lead after one quarter and then spent the rest of the contest holding off a long slow comeback attempt by the Timberwolves.

“I’m thinking the same old, same old. We’ve had leads like that the last four games,” noted Onalaska coach Wayne Nelson. “The second half was pretty close. We got up eight a couple of times but never over double digits.”

The Loggers connected on 9 of 12 attempts from downtown and Whitehead knocked down five of his six three-point attempts on the way to his game-high scoring mark. Ashton Haight was Onalaska’s second leading scorer with a baker’s dozen points.

“Ashton Haight played really well tonight. Not only did he have 13 points but he had three charges taken. I thought it was his best game of the year,” noted Nelson.

Josh Salguero led MWP with 16 points. Carter Dantinne added 10 points while Hayden Young and Gary Dotson were held to just four points each.

“We just played man-to-man defense,” said Nelson. “Their guards penetrated and dumped the ball off to their post quite a bit so those guys didn’t get as many looks.”

Onalaska (8-1, 3-1 league) will play at Wahkiakum on Monday.

Morton-White Pass (6-7, 2-1 league) will play at Toledo on Wednesday.

 

Girls: Warriors Down Eatonville

ROCHESTER — The Warriors overcame a rough second quarter here on Saturday in order to defeat Eatonville 44-34 in a non-league girls basketball contest.

Rochester ran out to a 19-8 lead after one quarter but allowed Eatonville to take the second frame 11-4 to cut make it a game before halftime.

Kya Stewart led the Cruisers with 13 points.

“I know they had way too many offensive rebounds,” said Rochester coach Davina Serdahl. “They were really physical. I was really surprised.”

The Warriors were able to right themselves at the intermission and won the third quarter 11-3 to put the game back in their control.

Paige Winter scored a game-high 14 points and snagged seven rebounds in the win while Lexie Sederberg-Jones notched 13 points and three steals. Kortney Kerbaugh added four points and a team-high nine rebounds.

“We played much better in the second half to take care of the win,” noted Serdahl.

Rochester (8-4, 1-1 league) will play at W.F. West on Tuesday.
