Wednesday’s 2B Boys Basketball: Apperson Sparks Pirates Past Kalama

By The Chronicle
ADNA — Austen Apperson made a splash in the first quarter, and Adna cruised in a 69-35 C2BL boys hoops win over Kalama here Wednesday night.
Apperson, the Pirates’ sixth man, entered the game with five minutes left in the first quarter. Before the second quarter began he scored 13 points on 5 of 5 shooting with a trio of 3-pointers, helping Adna take a 26-10 lead.
“He’s kind of consistently been huge for us,” Adna coach Luke Salme said. “Tonight I think that was evident to everybody, because it came in bunches, but he was key to getting us going.”
Adna shot 57 percent from the floor (28 of 49) and went 10 of 21 from long range. Trevor Thornburg hit four 3-pointers and scored 14 points, Cody Young added 13, and Lyle Metzenberg scored 13 with seven rebounds.
Alex Dyer led Kalama with 11 points.
Adna (11-1, 7-1 league) plays at Toutle Lake on Friday.

Balanced Cards Crush Rainier
RAINIER — Winlock pulled away in the middle quarters and rolled past Rainier, 69-42, here Wednesday night in C2BL boys hoops action.
Nick Patching led Winlock with 15 points, Bryce Cline added 13, and Dawson Hall scored 12 with nine rebounds. Jayce Coleman added 10 points and 10 rebounds, and Carter Whitehead scored 11.
The Cardinals led 29-19 at halftime, but scored 25 in the third quarter.
“It took us a while to get some shots to go in,” Winlock coach Nick Bamer said. “In the third quarter, and late in the second, we started going to the basket a little more and getting to the free throw line and making things easy on us.”
The balanced scoring, Bamer said, isn’t exactly a talking point within the team, but a nice natural bonus.
“Our shot selection for the most part is pretty great. We share the ball, we move the ball really well, and it’s just a fun group of kids to have,” he said. “It almost always is pretty even.”
Noah Patching, off the bench, added 4 points with six rebounds and three assists.
Winlock (9-3, 5-3 league) hosts Napavine on Friday.

Toledo Halts Pe Ell
PE ELL — Toledo outscored Pe Ell 30-4 in the first quarter to allow the Indians to cruise to a 70-38 win in a Central 2B League boys basketball game here on Wednesday.

Toledo shot 58 percent from the field while Pe Ell hit at a 27-percent clip.
The Indians led 37-15 at halftime.
“I thought we played real good in the middle quarters. The first and the last killed us defensively. We gave up way too many easy lay-ins,” Pe Ell coach Chris Fitzgerald said. “I thought we played better, but they’re good.”
Prestegord and Ryan Shepherd both played well, Fitzgerald added.
Toledo (10-2, 7-1) hosts Morton-White Pass on Friday while Pe Ell (1-10, 0-8) travels to Kalama on Friday for a league game.

RANDLE — Matt Poquette scored 22 points to lead the Timberwolves to a 72-17 win over Mossyrock in a Central 2B League boys basketball game here on Wednesday.

Morton-White Pass also used the big men to their advantage, outrebounding Mossyrock 53-21.
“We had a height advantage on them with our two big guys and they went to work,” MWP coach Tony Gillispie said. “We shared the ball well and got the ball to the right people at the right spots. Defensively, I thought we played sound most of the night. It was a good game for us to start the week.”
Gillispie noted the play of story Storey, who he said has been developing as a player.
Mossyrock (1-10, 1-7) hosts Onalaska on Friday, while MWP (10-2, 7-1) travels to Toledo on Friday for a league matchup.

Loggers Come Up Short Against Wahkiakum
ONALASKA — Cade Lawrence shot a 3-pointer from the corner from the win, but it went in and out as Wahkiakum held on for a 44-42 win over Onalaska in a Central 2B League boys basketball game here on Wednesday.

Onalaska had 12 turnovers in the first half, but didn’t give the ball away after the break.
“I’m proud of the kids. They hung in there and found a way,” Onalaska coach Dennis Bower said. “We put ourselves in a good position and we worked our way out of that. We did play a great second half and the kids gave it everything they had.”
Bower said Volk had the best game of his career and played outstanding defense.
Onalaska (3-9, 1-7) travels to face Mossyrock on Friday in a C2BL matchup.
