Aberdeen’s boys and Raymond’s girls basketball teams each picked up league victories as we review Monday’s prep sports on the Twin Harbors.
BOYS PREP BASKETBALL
Aberdeen 52, Rochester 48
Aberdeen rallied from a 10-point first quarter deficit to defeat Rochester 52-48 on Monday in Aberdeen.
The Bobcats (2-3 overall, 1-3 2A Evergreen) fell behind 22-12 after a first quarter in which Rochester (0-4 overall, 2A Evergreen) got off to a hot start by hitting seven 3-pointers — six of those from Tyler Klatush.
“I was disappointed in our effort and attention to execute our defensive game plan,” Aberdeen head coach Mark Buckman said. “Give Rochester a ton of credit for knocking down shots.”
Aberdeen found its defense in the second quarter — led by sophomores Jeremy Sawyer and Kale Goings — to turn the game around by holding the Warriors to six points in the frame, cutting the deficit to 28-27 at the half.
The Bobcats defense held Rochester to 20 points in the second half, including a nine-point fourth quarter, en route to the 52-48 victory.
Aberdeen’s Andrew Troeh scored 12 points — six in the fourth quarter — and grabbed five rebounds in a performance Buckman dubbed a “great all-around game.”
Angel Baltazar led Aberdeen with 14 points with Kayden Seibert grabbing 10 rebounds for the Bobcats.
GIRLS PREP BASKETBALL
Raymond 64, South Bend 8
Raymond held South Bend scoreless through the first half on its way to a 64-8 thumping over the Indians on Monday in Raymond.
The Seagulls (4-1 overall, 2B Pacific) got balanced scoring as nine of 11 Raymond players scored in the contest.
Kyra Gardner led Raymond with 22 points and 12 steals.
Karsyn Freeman (12 points, 5 steals, 3 assists) and Maddi Silvernail (9 pts., 8 rebounds) also had significant offensive contributions for a Raymond team that led 35-0 at halftime.
“After a rough start to the game Saturday at Northwest Christian it was nice to see the girls come out and set the tone defensively early tonight,” Raymond head coach Jason Koski said. “The girls were definitely in a positive mindset right off the start.”
Raymond collected 22 rebounds in the game, led by Silvernail and Grace Busenius, who had eight apiece.
