Girls Basketball Roundup

CHS wins second in a row, evens record with victory over Lyle

Becky Clary and Ericka Ziegler each scored 13 points to lead visiting Columbia High past Lyle, 39-16, in non-league girls prep basketball action last Friday.

The win evened the Bruins' record at 2-2, while the Cougars dropped to 2-1.

Joelle Jackson's nine points and eight rebounds paced Lyle.

Columbia extended a 4-2 first-quarter lead to 15-6 by halftime. The Bruins broke the game open in the third quarter, outscoring the Cougars, 12-2. They wrapped up the win with a 12-8 fourth quarter.

"White Salmon played great defense against us," Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow noted.

CHS held Lyle to five field goals in 30 attempts. The Bruins made 16-of-77 shots from the floor.

At Stevenson 38, Lyle 19 --

A 15-4 surge in the third quarter last Saturday propelled the Bulldogs to the non-league victory over the Cougars.

"We were within six points with a little over three minutes to play in the third quarter," Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow said, "and then Stevenson took control of the game."

According to Barthlow, the Bulldogs used their height advantage to clean up on the offensive glass during their third-quarter run, with the majority of their 15 points coming off second-chance shots.

"We played with a lot of heart and had some real great looks and shots at the basket that just didn't go in for us," Barthlow noted. "As long as we continue to do the things we are doing, we'll be all right; the shot will eventually start to fall for us."

Joelle Jackson had six points and seven rebounds, and Jessica Struck pulled down nine rebounds for Lyle (2-2), which made 6-of-48 shots from the floor.

Natalie Saunders scored 16 points for Stevenson (1-2) to lead all scorers and Rylee Walker chipped in six.

Mabton 56, at Klickitat 25 -- After an 11-point first quarter last Friday, the Vandals went stone cold at the offensive end, losing the Greater Columbia B League opener for both teams.

Anna Montelongo had 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Vikings, who extended a 26-16 halftime lead to 39-23 after three quarters.

Klickitat's Aryn Davis had a double-double of 10 points and 11 rebounds, to go with four blocks and three steals. Melissa Huwe led the Vandals with 11 points and four steals.

At Columbia High 51, Montesano 42 --

Ericka Zielger scored 21 points and Jenny Pulido had eight as the Bruins won the Dec. 7 non-league make-up game against the Bulldogs.

Ziegler had 11 of her points in the first quarter, which Columbia ended with a 16-4 advantage.

Montesano pulled within 32-24 at halftime, though, thanks to a 20-point outburst.

But Columbia, led by four points each from Ziegler and Chelan Weiler, pushed its lead back to double-digits by the end of the third quarter (44-32).

A 29-24 rebound advantage and a low turnover total (12) helped key the Bruins' first victory of the season.

At Kalama 45, Columbia High 27 --

The Bruins won the rebound battle, 44-29, but mustered just 10 points in the second half and two in the fourth quarter of their Dec. 5 non-league loss to the Chinooks.

Ericka Ziegler had 14 points and nine rebounds for CHS, while Kalama's Amanda Clark took game scoring honors with 15 points.

Kalama, which led, 25-17, at the break, capitalized on 33 second-half turnovers by CHS, which turned the ball over 50 times in the game.
