THURSDAY, FEB 8 1ST ROUND DISTRICT TOURNAMENT
Game 1: Willapa Valley 56, Morton-White Pass 52
(Chehalis, WA) In this game it was about cutting to the 4th quarter and seeing what happens as both teams exploded offensively nearly doubling what they had done for 3 quarters. M-WP actually held a slim 1-point lead entering the final 8 minutes but the amazing thing wasn’t that they lost by 4 points but they lost 56-52 after leading 31-30 after 3. Both teams seemingly put up enough points to win the game in the 4th but it was the Vikings Hannah Cook who overwhelmed the Timberwolves and they could not resist the comeback win.
Cook scored 13 of her 18 in the final quarter and scored half of the 26 Willapa Valley sank. Britney Campbell hit 2 big 3’s and half her 12 points in the 4th while Katie Adkins and Cameron Swartz also scored in the 4th. It was Brooke Friese who helped keep WV in the game as she hit all 10 of hers in the 1st 3 quarters.
Meantime, the T-Wolves would likely win 95% of their games putting up 21 in the 4th when entering the quarter with any lead. Sierra Dotson kept MWP in the game with 10 of her 19 in the 4th while Jacie Dunlap scored 9 of her 20. The T-Wolves led by 4 after 1 and at the half but could never find that 2nd half surge to put away a persistent Viking squad. Willapa Valley advances to face Napavine Saturday while the T-Wolves will be in a loser out consolation on Monday vs the loser of Saturday’s Ocosta/Wahkiakum game.
Our Pacific Sports Spa Players of the Game went to WV’s Hannah Cook and MWP’s Sierra Dotson and the Thorebeckes Sportswoman of the game went to the Vikings Brooke Friese.
Game 2: Toledo 35, Raymond 30
(Chehalis, WA) The 1st game ended in a shoot-out this one was a true grind from start to finish. Neither team would score in double digits until the 4th quarter and then it was a push with 10 each. Both teams opened the game with 8 each it was the middle 2 quarters where Toledo edged out the Seagulls.
Kal Schaplow led the Indians with 15 and helped push their 2nd half lead to as many as 9 34-25 and then scored just 1 more point but held off any thought of a late surge by Raymond with a smothering defense. Anna Tauscher added 8 points for Toledo and Makenna Williams led Raymond with 9.
Toledo advances to face Life Christian on Saturday and Raymond falls into the consolation bracket with a loser out game on Monday against the loser of the Mossyrock/Ilwaco game. Our Pacific Sports Spa Players of the Game went to Toledo’s Kal Schaplow and Raymond’s Makenna Williams and our Thorebeckes Sportswoman of the game went to Toledo’s Alyssa Ewers.
