Gulls 58, Indians 44

SOUTH BEND — Raymond’s first half was enough to establish a cushion against rival South Bend and hold off a late rally to win this Pacific 2B League contest on Tuesday night at the Koplitz Fieldhouse.

Cydney Flemetis led all scorers with 22 points, including five 3-pointers, for the Gulls. Jessica Sanchez led the Indians with 10 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. South Bend (3-3, 3-4) trimmed the deficit to 47-40 with three minutes left, but Raymond (4-1, 5-2) never allowed it to get any closer.

“It was a classic rivalry battle back and forth, lots of ebbs and flows,” Raymond head coach Jason Koski said. “We were able to turn them over more than we turned the ball over, which gave us some extra possessions in the game. They came out in a little bit of a different look in the second half and we struggled against it.”

“We played intimidated, especially in the first quarter,” South Bend head coach Gary Wilson added. “We started to come out of it in the second quarter and we really played well after halftime. We were in striking distance, but Raymond responded well to our run.”

Karley Reidinger added 11 points and eight rebounds for South Bend. Makenna Williams dished out six assists and Winter Newman swiped six steals for Raymond.

On Thursday, South Bend hosts Life Christian Academy and Raymond hosts Ocosta.

WESTPORT — Ocosta’s Kristi Raffelson led all scorers with 23 points and 25 rebounds as the Wildcats dominated the paint to knock off Willapa Valley in a Pacific 2B League contest on Tuesday.

Erika Snider added nine points and 12 rebounds for the Wildcats (4-2, 6-3), who outrebounded the Vikings, 59-32, on the night.

“We knew coming in we were taller,” Ocosta head coach Jason Barnum said. “If we controlled the boards and put pressure on (Hannah) Cook, we would have a successful night. They struggled with shooting and we controlled the boards.”

Bailee Betrozoff led Valley with 10 points.

On Thursday, Ocosta travels to Raymond, while Willapa Valley (0-6, 1-6) travels to Chief Leschi.

Fishermen 64, Hyaks 28

ILWACO — Ilwaco used solid defense to hold North Beach scoreless in the first quarter and cruise to victory in a Pacific 2B League game on Tuesday.

The Fishermen employed a 1-3-1 press to hold the Hyaks to just eight points in the first quarter.

Ebby McMullen and Makenzie Kaech each scored 18 points to lead Ilwaco.

“We didn’t do a good job handling the pressure and we couldn’t handle the ball,” North Beach coach Larry Moore said. “If you can’t take care of the ball, you have no chance. The girls played hard we just have to do a better job taking care of the ball.”

North Beach (2-4, 4-4) hosts Northwest Christian today.

Bruins 52, Loggerettes 17

WISHKAH — Clallam Bay used a full-court press to go on a 24 to 1 run in the third quarter and roll past Wishkah in a non-league game on Tuesday.

Atokena Abe led the Bruins with 18 points. The Loggerettes (4-1) were led by nine points from Maggie Sorenson, while eighth-grader Brooke Haskey added eight points and 11 rebounds.

“In that third quarter, they came out and full-court pressed us and we just didn’t have our guards,” Wishkah coach Dave Busz said. “Our one guard is sick and another is out. They were just better than we were tonight.”

Wishkah pulled down 25 rebounds as a team on the night with Jesse Thompson adding six boards and Mackenzie Robertson pulling down five boards.

Wishkah hosts the Hoquiam junior varsity today.

BOYS BASKETBALL

Knights 62, Eagles 59

VANCOUVER — Down 38-19 at the half, Elma came roaring back and nearly won it in regulation before King’s Way Christian edged out a non-league win in overtime on Tuesday night.

Trace Thompson led Elma with 25 points, the majority of them coming in the second half. Avery Brown added 19 points, six assists and six rebounds and A.J. Brown pulled down 10 rebounds to go with his nine points.

“We had a chance to win in regulation — a 30-foot shot that was missed just to the right,” Elma head coach Marvin Prince said. “In overtime, we had the ball with eight seconds left. Coming up to the key, we had three options and we got the right one. The ball just didn’t go in (to tie). We played fantastic (in the second half), just a great overall effort by the guys.

“If we continue to play this way, I know we are going to start winning games.”

Skyler Freeman led all scorers with 28 points for King’s Way.

On Dec. 28, Elma (2-5 overall) travels to Ilwaco.

Fishermen 63, Hyaks 28

ILWACO — Ilwaco made the most of transition offense to run past North Beach in a Pacific 2B League game on Tuesday.

The Fishermen jumped out to a 10-point lead after one quarter, but North Beach battled back to within seven just before halftime. However, that was as close as the Hyaks would come. Ilwaco stretched the lead back to 11 by the break and held North Beach to just five points in the second half.

They got a lot of layups in transition by our inability to get back on defense,” North Beach coach Larry Moore said. “We didn’t hustle back and they got easy buckets that way and then we couldn’t score. We couldn’t establish anything offensively.”

Zac Tapio scored a game-high 19 points to lead the Fishermen.

North Beach was led by eight points and eight rebounds from Diego Gonzalez and seven points each from Tim Johnson and Ryan Turner.

North Beach (1-6) host Northwest Christian today.

NB 12 11 0 5 — 28 Ilwaco 22 12 15 14 — 63

North Beach (28) — You, Johnson 7, Turner 7, Washington, Robles, Gonzalez 8, Muro 2, Poplin 4. FT — 1-10.

Ilwaco (63) — Tapio 19, Woods 7, Kaino 13, Te. Ramsey, Tr. Ramsey, Mendoza, Bannister 7, Glenn 13, Merino-Ortiz, Tynkila 4, Sheldon. FT — 13-17.

Bruins 65, Loggers 43

WISHKAH — Clallam Bay worked the ball inside to power past Wishkah in a non-league game on Tuesday.

Will Fultz led the Loggers (0-5) with 18 points, but the height of the six-man Clallam Bay crew played havoc on Wishkah.

“It was pretty close in the first quarter, but they just took off after that,” Wishkah assistant coach Terry Baltzel said. “We didn’t play very good defense and we couldn’t stop either one of their big kids.”

Hunter Baltzel and Anthony Fenten each added eight points for the Loggers.

Wishkah hosts the Hoquiam C Squad on Thursday.

Clallam Bay (65) — Tinioco 13, Smith 19, Aldana 6, Signor 3, McCoy 26, Maines. FT — 13-15.

Wishkah (43) — Wilber, Amberocio, M. Fultz 6, W. Fultz 18, Baltzel 8, Fenten 8, Steancavich, Palmgren, Breanaman 3. FT — 5-13.
