Chitwhins 83, Red Devils 76

TAHOLAH — Erupting for 32 points in the third quarter, Taholah remained unbeaten by taking a shootout from Neah Bay in a non-league game Monday at Taholah.

The Chitwhins (5-0) trailed 42-34 at the half. But Brett Orozco knocked down three 3-point shots and Zach Cain added a fourth before the Red Devils could score in the third quarter, giving Taholah a lead it never relinquished.

“(To start the game), we didn’t get back on defense and they got some easy buckets,” Taholah coach Mike Rose said. “In the third quarter, we picked up the pressure.”

Cain fell barely short of a triple-double with 20 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. Orozco also scored 20 points.

Levi Jackson tallied 14 points for Taholah. Rose cited Dylan James and Jayson Mowitch for reserve play.

Neah Bay’s Cole Svec led all scorers with 25 points.

Centralia utilized an inside-outside passing game to take down Hoquiam in a non-league game at Hoquiam Square Garden on Monday.

The Tigers hit nine 3-pointers, but also worked the ball inside to earn 24 foul shots on the night.

“They are a little bigger than us and we struggled with the matchup,” Hoquiam coach Mark Maxfield said. “We had to double down and they kicked out and made the threes and when we didn’t double down (5-foot-11 post Ellie) Corwin was able to put it in on us.”

Corwin finished with 16 points for the Tigers, while freshman Carissa Kaut scored a game-high 21 points, 18 of which came on 3-pointers.
