Tuesday’s 2B Boys Basketball: Napavine Holds Off Adna

 Napavine Holds Off Adna

ADNA — Napavine led by 16 points at halftime and held off a late Adna rally to secure a 65-63 win in a Central 2B League boys basketball game here on Tuesday.

Jordan Purvis led the Tigers with 25 points. Cody Young led Adna with 16 points, and Conner Weed and Lyle Metzenberg each scored 15 for the Pirates.

The Tigers started the game on a 9-0 run and led 43-27 at halftime. Adna closed the gap to 3 points in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t quite get over the hump.

“They were the tougher competitors in the first half. They shot it really well in the first half, and that’s a bad combination for us,” Adna coach Luke Salme said. “The last four minutes, we were within 3 points the whole time, and had a couple shots at the end of the game to tie it but didn’t finish them.”

Peyton Stanley scored 14 points and Dawson Stanley added 11 for Napavine, playing its first game of the season.

“It was a heck of an effort we showed battling back from the first half,” Salme said, “but we can’t let the other team be tougher for two quarters when it’s someone as good as Napavine.”

Adna (2-1, 0-1 league) travels Onalaska on Thursday for a league game, while Napavine travels to Pe Ell for a C2BL matchup.

Balanced MWP Drops Pe Ell in Opener

RANDLE — The Timberwolves shot a solid 59 percent from the field and pulled away in the second quarter for a 75-24 win over Pe Ell here Tuesday in Central 2B League boys basketball action.

Matt Poquette scored a game-high 23 points with eight rebounds, and the Timberwolves turned an 8-point lead after a quarter into a 36-14 halftime advantage.

“I was actually pretty pleased,” MWP coach Tony Gillispie said. “I thought we were somewhat under control and played fast all night, which was good.”

The Timberwolves shot 34 of 58 from the field. Kade Gillispie added 12 points and seven assists, Kaleb Rashoff had 10 points, Carson Lewis had 8 points and five assists, and Tristan Story had 8 points, eight rebounds and six blocked shots.

“Our defense got tougher, and it was a good outing most of the night,” Gillispie said, noting that MWP had a relatively-low 13 turnovers. “We had good balance, so I was quite pleased for the first night.”

Kaleb McCalden led Pe Ell with 11 points.

Morton-White Pass (1-0) plays at Rainier on Thursday. Pe Ell (0-3) hosts Napavine on Thursday.

Cards Heat Up Late to Beat Wahkiakum

WINLOCK — The teams combined to shoot 84 percent from the foul line, but Winlock poured in 27 points in the fourth quarter to pull away in a 75-52 Central 2B League boys basketball win here Tuesday night.

Bryce Cline scored 19, Nick Patching added 18 and Dawson Hall scored 16 with 10 rebounds for Winlock.

The Cardinals led 48-39 after three quarters before exploding late.

“That’s a pretty good quarter, and we needed it,” Winlock coach Nick Bamer said. “I was about ready to lose my mind. We couldn’t keep them off the free-throw line, and I couldn’t believe how well they shot.”

Wahkiakum went 19 of 22 (86 percent) from the line, and got a team-high 19 points from Zach Brown.

“In the fourth quarter we finally started hitting some of our outside shots,” Bamer said. “We shot the ball a lot better. We got a few breakaways and made things easy on us.”

Cline, a sophomore, played well, he added.

“Whenever we needed a bucket he was able to step up and get us one,” he said. “He’s just a real heady basketball player for a sophomore.”

Jayce Coleman added 6 points with six rebounds.

“I think he probably had the best game of his career tonight,” Bamer said. “He changed, and altered, so many shots that I was just super impressed by his effort tonight.”

Luke Brown added 12 points for Wahkiakum.

Winlock (2-0) hosts Toledo on Tuesday. The Cardinals were scheduled to play Kalama on Thursday, but the game has been postponed due to the Chinooks’ late football season.

Toledo Cruises Past Mossyrock

MOSSYROCK — Toledo had four players score in double figures to help the Indians to a 76-30 win over Mossyrock in a Central 2B League boys basketball game here on Tuesday.

Andreas Malunat led Toledo with 18 points, making six 3-pointers. Reece and Westin Wallace each scored 14 points and Fano Arceo-Hansen added 12 points.

“I thought they played great. We executed some offense, and they’re shorthanded, obviously,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said. “Malunat knocked them down. Six 3s for anybody in any game is awesome. We shot well as a team.”

Mossyrock’s Justin Gootgeld led all scorers with 21 points, though the Vikings are still without a few projected starters due to injuries.

“The effort is there, but we’re still struggling. We have two guys that have played varsity basketball, two seniors, and everybody else is still young and trying to get in there,” Mossyrock coach Jordan Hunter said. “We’re getting there, but it’s going to be a process for us. We just have to keep grinding away as we approach Christmas and get some kids back.”

Westin Wallace scored 10 points in the first quarter to help the Indians to a 23-8 lead after the first quarter.

Toledo (3-0, 1-0) hosts Wahkiakum on Thursday in a C2BL game, while Mossyrock (0-3, 0-1) travels to face Toutle Lake on Thursday in a C2BL contest.

Rainier Holds Off Ony, 38-36

RAINIER — No player scored in double figures here Tuesday night as Rainier held off Onalaska, 38-36, in a Central 2B League boys basketball game.

Jeff Ashby scored a game-high 9 points to lead the Mountaineers.

Rainier scored 15 in the third quarter to take a 32-27 lead, and Onalaska fought back to take it down to the wire. The Loggers stole the ball with 16 seconds left to get one last shot at forcing overtime.

“We ran a play, and didn’t get the shot we wanted,” Logger coach Dennis Bower said. “I can’t fault the effort of the kids, and we’ll get better. We’ve just got to get better offensively. Defensively, we’re okay, but we can get better.”

Cody Cooper and Tristen Lawrence each scored 8 points for Onalaska, which went 4 of 12 from the foul line.

Onalaska (0-2) hosts Adna on Thursday in a C2BL matchup. Rainier (3-1, 2-0 league) hosts Morton-White Pass on Thursday.
