Mules Topple the Cart in Cheese Town

TOLEDO — Wahkiakum got the best of the hometown team here Thursday night as they secured a 45-24 victory in Central 2B girls basketball action.

“We had an off night shooting and obviously you’ve got to make shots to beat Wahkiakum,” said Toledo coach Brian Layton.  “We really struggled shooting. They also play excellent defense. They made their shots in the second half and we didn’t.”

Toledo shot just 15 percent from the field on 52 shots and hit only four of 12 free throws in the game.

Toledo fell behind early but trailed just 20-15 at the half. After the intermission, though, Toledo was outscored 25-9 to seal the final outcome. The Mules’ Macie Elliot led all scorers with 17 points and Ellie Leitz added 10 points for the visitors. Wahkiakum also bested Toledo 26-19 in total team rebounds.

“I thought our defense was getting better and better and that’s where we need to be this time of year,” said Layton. “I thought we played well as an entire unit but Kyleigh Holmes in particular, we kind of feed off of her energy defensively.”

Kal Schaplow led Toledo with nine points while Stacie Spahr added eight points. Spahr and Kyleigh Homes grabbed six rebound each for the home team.

Toledo (12-6, 5-3 league) will play at Mossyrock on Monday.


Mossyrock Rallies in Second Half to Beat Napavine

NAPAVINE — Heather Edgar scored 13 of her game-high 18 points in the second half, and Mossyrock came back to beat Napavine 42-34 here Thursday in a Central 2B League girls basketball game.

Napavine led 23-14 at the break, but managed just 11 points after halftime.

“I thought that Mossyrock played extremely well in the second half,” Napavine coach Shane Schutz said. “Unfortunately for our team, we did not play assignment basketball in the second half. Mossyrock took advantage of that and scored it well.”

Rae Sisson and Sydney Purvis each scored 11 points for the Tigers, who shot 13 of 49 (27 percent) from the field.

Faith Mulligan added eight points for the Vikings.

Sisson and Vannie Fagerness both played hard for Napavine, Schutz added.

Napavine (5-13, 2-6 league) hosts Morton-White Pass on Monday. Mossyrock (7-10, 5-3 league) hosts Toledo on Monday.


Loggers Defense Cages Cardinals

ONALASKA — The Loggers held Winlock to just six first half points here Thursday night on their way to a 55-29 Central 2B girls basketball victory.

Onalaska held a 27-6 advantage at the half and added 28 points in the second half to put the game away. Callie Lawrence led Onalaska with 21 points and Eryn Duryea added 14 points for the winners. Lawrence added five steals to her tally and Duryea pitched in five assists.

“I think the first half I was actually happier with our defensive effort,” said Onalaska coach Dracy McCoy. “The girls worked hard. They did a really good job on Addison (Hall) that first half there. She’s a good little player and I think we took care of her defensively in the first half.”

Onalaska shot just four free throws compared to 15 for Winlock but managed to edge the Cardinals 35-29 in the rebounding column to offset that discrepancy. The Loggers’ glass cleaning effort was led by sisters Carmen and Alex Cleveland-Barrera, who grabbed 14 and 10 rebounds, respectively.

“They didn’t have their best night scoring wise but Duryea and Lawrence really picked up the slack,” said McCoy. “We ran the ball very well tonight. Callie, I would say that over half of her points were fast break layins. Carmen and Alex did a great job throwing passes to her.”

The Loggers coach was pleased with her team’s balanced scoring as eight of ten players posted points in the win. Onalaska knocked down 24 of 72 shots in the win while Winlock hit just 10 or 41 attempts.

Hall scored 18 points for the Cardinals and Madison Lofberg added six points.

Onalaska (11-7 overall, 4-4 league) will host Wahkiakum on Saturday. Winlock (4-13, 1-7) will play at Three Rivers Christian on Saturday.


Pirates Ride Wave to Victory Over MWP

MORTON — Adna scored 26 first quarter points here Thursday night on their way to a 54-28 victory over Morton-White Pass in girls Central 2B League basketball play.

“They had their press on and we don’t handle it very well plus they were hitting nearly everything they threw up,” said Morton-White Pass coach Tom Griffith.

The Pirates hit four three-point shots in that opening quarter to help attain the early separation. Karlee VonMoos led the Pirates with 13 points while Kaylin Todd added 12 points and eight rebounds on the night. Payton Aselton added seven points and seven rebounds to the winners’ tally.

The rest of the way the Timberwolves managed to hang around as Adna outpaced them just 28-22 over the final three quarters.

“I was really proud of our girls. I mean we got down 20 points in the first quarter and they kept their heads up and played with a lot of heart and intensity the rest of the game,” said Griffith. “Adna is good. They are much bigger and taller than we are and we basically played them even for three quarters.”

Jacie Dunlap led the MWP effort with 15 points and nine rebounds.

“She doesn’t usually rebound like that so to see her up there with nine is encouraging. That’s a stat that she doesn’t usually produce.”

Griffith noted that it was senior night in East Lewis County as the T-Wolves honored Dunlap, Elexious Hampton, Kaylen Collette, and Hannah Smathers.

“All four of these girls have played for me all four years,” said Griffith.

He tabbed Griffith as the team leader and designated scorer while Hampton and Collette are the team’s top to defenders. He said Smathers has been the hardest worker on the team her entire career and commended her for assuming the role of undersized post defender.

Morton White-Pass (1-17, 0-8 league) will play at Napavine on Monday while Adna (14-4, 7-1 league) will play host to Wahkiakum.


Balanced T-Birds Top Rochester

ROCHESTER — Four Thunderbirds scored in double figures here Thursday night as Tumwater picked up a 61-41 Evergreen 2A Conference girls hoops win over the Warriors.

Aubrey Amendala and Isabella Lund each scored 12, with Katie Cunningham and Sophia Koelsch adding 10 each for Tumwater (16-1).

“Our effort was there, but they just have so many different offensive weapons,” Rochester coach Davina Serdahl said. “It was a tough matchup for us in that route.”

Paige Winter led Rochester with 19 points, but Tumwater pushed the lead to double figures in the third quarter and pulled away in the fourth. Lexi Jones-Sederberg added 15 for Rochester.

“Paige and Lexi did their things,” Serdahl said. “We just needed to have a little more balanced scoring tonight.”

Rochester (9-8, 2-5 league) hosts Black Hills on Wednesday.


Black Hills Thumps Centralia 76-31

The Wolves had four players in double figures on Thursday night and rolled to a 76-31 win over Centralia in Evergreen 2A Conference girls hoops action.

Kennedi Greenfield led Black Hills with 13 points, and Megan River, Jordyn Bender and Saleen Lee each tallied 11.

Centralia trailed just 9-7 in the first quarter, however, before the Wolves called a timeout to set things straight.

“It was like they just hit a different gear from that time forward,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said.

Black Hills ended the first half on a 15-2 run and led 40-17 at halftime. The Wolves also benefited from the return of senior forward Maisy Williams, who scored just two points on Thursday but was in the lineup for the first time since early December after suffering a broken finger.

“She didn’t play a whole lot, but they look like they’re moving in the right direction for a long playoff run,” Ashmore said.

Freshman Jayden Hawley led Centralia with eight points. Kennedy Strophy added seven.

Centralia (3-14, 2-6 league) plays at Aberdeen on Wednesday.


Bearcats Trounce Aberdeen 75-11

W.F. West built a 28-point lead after the first quarter and cruised on Thursday during a 75-11 dismantling of Aberdeen in Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball action in Chehalis.

Freshman Drea Brumfield led the Bearcats with 20 points, going 7 of 11 from the field and 4 of 6 from long range.

Courtney Bennett added 13 points on 6 of 7 shooting and Sarah Haakenson chipped in 11 points. Maggie Vadala contributed with five points, seven steals and seven assists.

The Bearcats shot 53 percent from the field (27 of 51) and outrebounded the Bobcats 25-17.

W.F. West (10-5, 5-1 league) plays a non-league game at Elma on Monday, then hosts EvCo-leading Tumwater on Wednesday.


Eagles Edge Tenino 49-48

TENINO — Tenino came close, but couldn’t quite knock off Elma here Thursday in a 1A Evergreen League girls basketball game.

Kaylee Schow scored 27 points for the Beavers, who came back from a 35-25 deficit after three quarters.

“We put on a half-court press and that sort of changed up the rhythm a little bit,” Beaver coach Brandi Thomas said, noting that her squad also wound up going 14 of 15 from the foul line in the fourth quarter. “I think this is the best free throw shooting percentage we’ve had all year.”

Schow scored 15 in the fourth quarter, and younger sister Ashley Schow added 10.

It was senior night, and the Beavers honored Kaylee Schow, Rhian Mathis and Charlie Letts.

“They all lead in different ways so it’s nice to have three unique captains in that aspect,” Thomas said. “It’s been nice to have them for the last three years. They are three good girls to look up to.”

Jalyn Sackrider led Elma with 15 points, and Kali Rambo added 10.

The Beavers (13-6, 4-3 league) play at Hoquiam on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. in their final league game.
