Wednesday’s Prep Girls Basketball: Centralia Falls at Cougar Classic

Centralia Falls at Cougar Classic

LAKEWOOD — Points were at a premium here Wednesday at the Cougar Classic girls basketball tournament, with Lakeside holding off Centralia, 38-22.

Centralia shot 10 of 41 (24 percent) from the field.

“Defensively, I was happy. We played really good D. They’re a good team, and really active on the boards,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said. “But offensively we could not find the hole.”

The Tigers shot 1 of 18 from behind the 3-point arc against the Lions’ 2-3 zone defense.

“We did way too much settling and shooting 3s tonight, which is just not our game,” Ashmore said.

Lakeside’s Alex Friends led all scorers with 10 points. The 3A Lions improved to 3-4 with the win.

Ellie Corwin led Centralia with 8 points and five blocked shots.

“Once again, she was doing as much as she could,” Ashmore said, “but a lot of times they had a couple posts on her, and were really taking her away.”

Kennedy Strophy played well off the bench, Ashmore added.

Centralia (6-3) is back in Lakewood Thursday night for a 5 p.m. game against either Everett or host Lakewood.

Pirates Blank Oroville in First Half of 45-15 Win

CHELAN — Adna’s defense kept Oroville off the scoreboard in the first half and the Lady Pirates cruised in a 45-15 win here Wednesday in the first round of action in the annual Chelan Holiday Tournament.

Payton Aselton scored 16 points, and Adna led 26-0 by halftime.

“We understand the way we’re going to have to play, tempo-wise,” Adna coach Chris Bannish said. “We’re going to have to turn them over to create offense for us.”

The strategy worked out fine on Wednesday. Adna attempted 71 shots in the game, hitting 19 (27 percent), while Oroville went just 4 of 34 from the floor.

The Hornets were also without starting point guard Sydney Egerton, Bannish pointed out.

Sam Foster had what Bannish called her best outing of the season, scoring 8 points with as many rebounds.

“We’ve just got to keep working hard,” Bannish said. “Defense, for us, is going to be our best offense.”

Adna (5-3, 3-2 Central 2B League) faces Chelan on Thursday night at 6 p.m. in the girls’ tournament championship game.

Tigers Score Big Win at Cali Tourney

LOS ANGELES — Melissa Lee scored 35 points, and Napavine knocked off a much larger opponent in Montebello, 67-45, here Wednesday in the Ayala Best of the West Tournament.

Montebello (2-6), located in Los Angeles, has an enrollment of over 3,000 students. The Oilers, though, were outscored 42-10 over the two middle quarters and never recovered.

Mollie Olson added 14 points and 12 assists for Napavine, while Alisia Trejo scored 32 for Montebello.

“We did a really good job of getting Melissa the ball, and the bench did a good job,” Napavine coach Jeremy Landram said, adding that Emilee Evander and Sydney Purvis both played well.

Napavine (6-0) plays host Ayala at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.

Host Vikings Put Away Pe Ell in Second Half

MENLO — Pe Ell kept things close in the first half, but Willapa Valley pulled away late for a 52-36 win in the Vikings’ Jack Q. Pearson Holiday Tournament here Wednesday night.

Cameron Swartz led Willapa Valley with 12 points, and Brittney Patrick added 11.

Freshman Rachel Ward led Pe Ell with 13 points.

Willapa Valley led 20-16 at halftime.

“We were in the game, and fairly in control. We missed a lot of easy baskets in the first half,” Pe Ell coach Chris Phelps said. “And towards the end of that third quarter we lost our focus, and couldn’t recover.”

Katie Davis added 8 points and 11 rebounds for Pe Ell, and Annika Mason scored 8 points.

“I felt we played solid offensively. I thought we’ve matured where we’ve been working, and in areas that we’ve struggled,” Phelps said. “So that, I was pleased to see, but I’d say give Valley credit. They were able to get out and get easy baskets on us.”

Pe Ell (2-6) is back in Menlo on Thursday to face Naselle at 1 p.m.
