Thursday’s Boys Basketball: Cardinals Pull Away to Beat Mossyrock 75-42

By The Chronicle

WINLOCK — Bryce Cline scored 22 points and Winlock pulled away in the third quarter to beat Mossyrock, 75-42, here Thursday in C2BL boys hoops action.

The Cardinals led 20-9 after a quarter, only to see the Vikings close the gap to 33-25 at the break.

Winlock, though, proceeded to outscore Mossyrock 27-5 in the third quarter to take a commanding lead.

“We kind of went through the motions in the second quarter,” Winlock coach Nick Bamer said. “The third quarter we just did a really good job of moving the ball. We were patient on offense and attacked the right way, so it was fun to see.”

Duece Kolb led Mossyrock with 26 points, including 21 in the first half.

Cline played an outstanding game for the Cardinals, Bamer noted, adding that Jonathan Gonzalez provided a spark off the bench.

Mossyrock (0-11) hosts Adna on Wednesday. Winlock (4-8, 2-1 league) plays at Hoquiam in a non-league game on Wednesday.

Stanley Leads Tigers Past Rainier

NAPAVINE — Dawson Stanley scored 26 points and Napavine used a big early push to get past Rainier, 62-28, here Thursday in Central 2B League boys hoops action.

Stanley went 10 of 19 from the field, and the Tigers led 24-5 after a quarter.

“We were able to get out in transition, able to turn them over a little bit and get some stops,” Napavine coach Rex Stanley said. “That first quarter, we came out and played really well.”

Cade Evander added 15 points, and Keith Olson chipped in with 11 points and 11 rebounds for Napavine, which won its fifth straight game.

Travis Honaker led Rainier (2-11) with 14 points.

Napavine (6-4, 2-0 league) hosts Adna on Monday in a non-league game.

Cold Shooting Doesn’t Slow Down Indians

TOLEDO — The Indians shot 30 percent from the field and converted only one 3-pointer, but still found enough offense to get past Onalaska, 49-36, here Thursday night in Central 2B League boys basketball action.

Fano Arceo-Hansen led the way with 21 points and 14 rebounds, converting the only triple of the game for Toledo and going 6 of 6 at the foul line.

The Indians did, however, hold a 42-26 rebounding advantage over the Loggers.

“It’s not a midseason lull, but it’s midseason, and sometimes that’s the dog days and things don’t go your way all the time, and you’ve got to rely on other things,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “Like, if our shots aren’t falling, go get rebounds.”

Westin Wallace added 11 points and nine rebounds, and Toledo outscored the Loggers 17-9 in the third quarter to pull away.

Hayden Farbo took a pair of charges and went 3 of 3 at the foul line for Toledo, Fallon added.

Kayden Allison led Onalaska with 13 points.

Toledo (10-2, 3-0 league) plays Morton-White Pass in Morton on Wednesday. Onalaska (6-5, 0-3 league) plays a non-league game at Ocosta on Monday.

ABERDEEN — Four Bearcats hit double figures here Thursday night as W.F. West won its Evergreen 2A Conference boys basketball opener, 75-63, over Aberdeen.

Tyler Speck went 7 of 11 from the field to score 17 points, and Colby White was 6 of 11 with 17 points, 11 rebounds and a pair of blocked shots.

Colton Baker added 16 points and Kayden Kelly went 9 of 14 at the foul line to finish with 11 points.

Thunderbirds Storm Past Warriors

ROCHESTER — The Warriors couldn’t do anything right against Tumwater here on Thursday, falling 76-22 in an Evergreen 2A Conference boys basketball game.

Ben Force scored 16 points to lead the Thunderbirds. Peyton Peterson and Damon Gaither each recorded 11 points.

Rochester’s Patrick Riley had nine points and six rebounds.

Tumwater’s defensive pressure gave Rochester trouble all game long.

“We did nothing good. It started with not handling their pressure. From that, everything else was also bad,” Rochester coach Mark Goldrick said. “I think it was because of that, we were hurried, rushed and couldn’t settle down. We had way more turnovers than points and probably more turnovers than shot attempts. When they’re rolling and you’re giving them possessions, that’s the way it ends.”

Rochester scored seven points in the first half to trail 38-7 at halftime.

Rochester (1-9, 0-1) travels to Orting on Saturday for the Warriors’ final non-league game of the season.

Wolves Take Down Tigers

Centralia got off to a solid start, but Black Hills pressure eventually overcame the Tigers to help the Wolves earn a 81-41 win in an Evergreen 2A Conference boys basketball game in the Hub City on Thursday.

Michael Ajoge scored 16 points and grabbed five rebounds to lead the Tigers. Malakai Emmons added 10 points and Benito Valencia came off the bench and chipped in 10 points and five rebounds.

“(Benito) was a good presence tonight and he did a good job inside,” Centralia coach Kyle Donahue said. “He’s been developing throughout the season and playing more minutes up on varsity. He’s a tough kid and a big body to have inside. He did well for us.”

Avery Armin recorded 25 points to lead all scorers and Zach Crumley tallied 18 points for Black Hills.

The Tigers had trouble finding their shot against the Wolves, shooting 36 percent from the field while Black Hills shot 50 percent.

Black Hills led 15-13 after one quarter. The Wolves’ pressure overwhelmed the Tigers in the second quarter, holding Centralia to nine points to lead 39-22 at halftime.

“We handled their pressure and then we didn’t handle their pressure. That’s the biggest thing right there,” Donahue said. “We did a good job handling it and didn’t handle it down the middle of the game there.”

The Wolves outscored Centralia 25-6 in the third quarter to pull away for good.

Centralia (1-10, 0-1) hosts Tumwater on Wednesday in an EvCo contest.
