Cougars stretch home win streak to 26 games

Trout Lake outscored Glenwood 20-2 in the third quarter to take charge of a Greater Columbia B League girls game last Saturday at home

With that outburst, the Mustangs extended a 15-10 halftime lead to 35-12 en route to their 45-20 victory over the Eagles.

Senior Angie Duke tossed in a game-high 16 points for Trout Lake, which also got 13 from junior Rachel Anderson.

Duke had 10 points in the Mustangs' big third quarter.

Junior Candi Kuhnhausen took scoring honors for Glenwood. She tallied five points. Sophomores Jodi Holly and Amanda Kuhnhausen each netted four.

The Eagles fell behind, 14-3, after one quarter. But they turned up the defensive pressure in the second, outscoring the Mustangs 7-1 and trimming their lead in half.

Klickitat 43, at Stevenson 20 --

The Vandals dusted up their hosts during last Saturday's non-league contest, holding the Bulldogs to under 10 points in all four periods.

Seniors Jordan Graeme (18) and Jaecee Ramsay (13) combined for 31 points to lead the way for Klickitat.

The Vandals jumped out to a 16-4 lead in the first quarter and led 23-7 at halftime.

A 20-point third quarter, sparked by Ramsay's eight points and senior Naomi Vitale's two 3-pointers, sealed the deal.

In the fourth, Klickitat failed to score as Vandals Coach Lee Bittinger sat all but one of his starters for the final eight minutes.

At Lyle 60, Bickleton 21 --

Senior Lindsey Blaine scored 30 points and classmate Sarah Billette had 10 rebounds, seven steals and seven assists as the Cougars ran their home winning streak to 26 games last Saturday.

Lyle put Bickleton away in the first half, building up a 33-8 margin by halftime of the GCB game.

Blaine had 14 points in the opening quarter and 18 at the half. She also collected six steals before leaving the game early in the fourth.

While Blaine carried most of the scoring load, Billette and junior Dawn Ullom did a lot of the dirty work.

In addition to her other contributions, Billette took a charge for the team. Ullom put up six points and took down eight of Lyle's 34 rebounds.

Defensively, the Cougars did a solid job of shutting down the Pirates' budding star, sophomore Annie Hess. She managed just three points -- all in the final period and well below her season average.

Overall, all 18 girls who suited up for the game played in every quarter.

Klickitat 46, at Bickleton 32 --

Klickitat opened with an 18-point first quarter, led by the scoring of Ramsay (7) and Graeme (6).

The Vandals stretch a seven-point lead to 10 at the half, 26-16. The lead was 36-25 after three quarters.

For Bickleton, Annie Hess was high scorer, with 11 points. Erica Jensen added eight.

At Lyle 72, Trout Lake 16 --

Sarah Billette played another solid all-around game, finishing with four points, four rebounds, six assists and four steals. Melissa Stephens contributed with eight rebounds.

The Mustangs, who were paced by Angie Duke's 10 points, trailed 14-8 after one quarter and 34-12 at the break. A scoreless third quarter sealed their fate.
