At Woodland JV 50, Columbia JV 34 --
Junior Bruins Coach Elmer Kinder had his hands full Jan. 14.
Not only did he have to find playing time for his regular 14 jayvee players; he also had to work three varsity players into the rotation.

However, the outcome was a significant improvement over the last meeting of these teams in December, when Woodland pounded the Juniors Bruins, 51-23, at a tournament in Washougal.
But a slow start in their most recent matchup put the Junior Bruins at a 29-8 disadvantage at halftime. Their deficit remained at 21 points at the end of the third quarter as well.
In the fourth, Columbia came to life, outscoring Woodland 15-10.
Constance Henderson led the Junior Bruins with nine points, and Kelsay Knutson had six.
