Cougars, Vandals net first GCB victories

Lyle rebounded from its double-overtime loss to Trout Lake/Glenwood with a 38-34 Greater Columbia B League girls basketball victory over Yakama Tribal in Toppenish.

Joelle Jackson registered her first double-double of the season for the Cougars (1-1, 3-5), scoring 12 points and pulling down 14 rebounds.

Jessica Cochenour added 12 rebounds and Kiera Murphy chipped in with nine rebounds and four assists for Lyle, which snapped a three-game losing streak.

"Coming off the tough loss from the night before, the girls came out strong and played a great game," Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow noted.

Lyle built a six-point halftime lead (24-18) but gave it away in the third quarter as Yakama Tribal rallied to tie the game at 30-30.

"I think we really hit the wall," Barthlow said about the third quarter. "The girls looked tired and we subbed a lot in the quarter to get the girls some much-needed rest."

The brief respite helped as the Cougars' re-energized starters took the floor for the fourth quarter.

"We came out and picked it up on defense, holding Tribal to four points while scoring eight of our own for the final margin of victory," Barthlow said.

At Klickitat 56, Bickleton 32:

Aryn Davis and Melissa Huwe combined for 31 points and 17 rebounds last Saturday to lead the Vandals to the GCB win over the Pirates.

Davis finished with 17 points and nine rebounds, while Huwe totaled 14 points and eight rebounds on a night Klickitat (1-1 in GCB, 6-4 overall) displayed great balance.

Kali Linville had 11 points, to go with five assists and four steals, and Trisheena Keys provided 10 points, five assists, five rebounds and three steals.

Game scoring honors, however, went to Bickleton eighth-grader Katelynn Clinton. She scored 18 points for the Pirates, who fell behind 21-5 in the fourth quarter and trailed 33-13 at halftime.

La Salle 60, at Trout Lake/Glenwood 18:

The defending state B champions had too much of everything for the Mustangs to handle last Saturday.

La Salle rolled to a 34-11 halftime lead on its way to making its GCB record 1-1.

Kindra Van Laar led the Mustangs (1-1, 3-5) with seven points and Kim Poland added six.
