Day 1 (Loser Out Games)

Washougal 52, East Valley (Yakima) 36

The Panthers advanced to the quarterfinals with a dominate start to finish win over East Valley of Yakima. Washougal got off to a fast start leading 18-5 after the 1st quarter. Although they had a slow 2nd quarter with just 12 points the defense shut down the Red Devils to their 2nd straight single digit quarter and pulled away to a 30-14 lead.

In the 2nd half the game got very physical as the Red Devils felt the pressure of trying to close the gap. Although they had their best quarter in the 3rd they could only pick up 1 point on the Panthers and trailed by 15 after 3. In the 4th it really got physical and Washougal withstood the rush of emotion the Red Devils played with as time ticked away on their season.

Beyounce Bea was huge in the paint for the Panthers with a double-double scoring 12 and grabbing 11 boards. She also had a blocked shot and 4 steals, this performance was singled out for our Tommy Lowe of Greene Realty Player of the Game. Our player of the game for Wast Valley went to Kallie Willett who was everywhere and never gave up on trying to mount a comeback.

Mason Oberg and Tiana Barnett each had solid games for Washougal each with 10 points while Toryi Midland was also tough in the paint with 4 blocked shots. Kalieigh Denton and Alyssa Valdez led East Valley with 8 each. Washougal will play Burlington-Edison tomorrow in the quarterfinals.
