Girls Basketball Roundup

Klickitat, Lyle take it down to the wire

Klickitat and Lyle clinched District 5 Class B tournament berths last weekend and will meet this Friday in a game with district-seeding implications.

The Vandals are 5-5 in Greater Columbia B League play entering the final weekend of the regular season while the Cougars are 4-6.

Klickitat won the first meeting at Lyle. It hosts Friday's rematch.

If Klickitat wins, it goes to district--which starts next Tuesday in Goldendale--as the Klickitat County Division's No. 1 seed, an honor that includes a first-round bye.

A Lyle victory would create a tie for the division crown, which, for seeding purposes, would be broken by a drawing of numbers.

Klickitat 54, at Bickleton 34:

The Vandals mounted a big lead after three quarters last Saturday, ending a four-game losing streak.

Melissa Huwe scored 16 points and Aryn Davis had 14 for Klickitat, which led 30-13 at halftime and 45-20 after three quarters of play.

Kirstin Slater and Corryn Raschko combined for 28 of the Pirates' 34 points.

The Cougars led 29-24 entering the fourth quarter but couldn't hold the Eagles off.

Tribal's Desba White hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer to tie the game at 47 and send it to overtime.

"I give our girls a lot of credit," Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow said. "They could have just given up after that, but they came out and played great defense in overtime, limiting Tribal to a 3-pointer just before the final buzzer."

The win was Lyle's third in its past four games.
