Three-way race shaping up for GCB's No. 2 district seed

Trout Lake/Glenwood, Bickleton and Klickitat all stayed in the running for the Greater Columbia B League's No. 2 seed in next month's Yakima Valley District Class 1B girls basketball tournament.

In a head-to-head matchup Jan. 15, TLG humbled Klickitat, 52-28, on the Vandals' homecourt.

Dave'y Lumley led the Eagle Mustangs with 14 points in a game TLG started fast by opening a 9-1 margin in the first quarter.

TLG tacked on 14 points in the second period and led 23-10 at halftime.

Klickitat held its own in the third quarter, though, and trailed 34-21 heading into the final frame--a period TLG went on to win, 18-7.

Kindra VanLaar, Megan Anderson and Katie Yarnell supported the Eagle Mustangs' cause with eight points each.

For the Vandals, Laura Justman had nine points and 12 rebounds, and Kali Fargher tallied nine points.

Trout Lake/Glenwood 34, at Lyle/Wishram 23:

The Eagle Mustangs improved to 2-0 on the week with last Thursday's league win over the Cougars.

Kindra VanLaar led TLG with nine points. Megan Anderson and Katie Yarnell chipped in seven apiece for the Eagle Mustangs, who led 17-9 at halftime and 30-14 after three quarters.

Tosha Cloud had 14 points, seven rebounds and five steals for Lyle/Wishram, which got five points and six rebounds from Jessica Cochenour.

Noted Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow: "We had some good stops on defense and limited them to one shot on numerous occasions. And we ran our offense really good, but we're still having troubles converting on the short shots we're getting."

Klickitat 59, at Yakama Tribal School 51:

The Vandals got outscored by 11 points in the fourth quarter of last Friday's GCB game in Toppenish but held on for the victory.

Kali Fargher scored 24 points, Samantha Brewer had 20 and Zoe Lindner added eight for Klickitat, which built a 52-33 lead after three quarters.

Candice Eyle of Tribal put in 25 points to account for almost half of the Eagles' offensive output.

At Riverside Christian 54, Lyle/Wishram 14:

In their third game in four nights, the Cougars shot just 6 for 38 from the floor and attempted only two free throws last Friday in Yakima.

"We were tired from the get-go," Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow said, "and once you get behind a good team like they are it's hard to catch back up."

Standouts for Lyle/Wishram included Tosha Cloud with six rebounds and four points and Treane Wells with seven rebounds.

For the Crusaders, Sarah Haak tallied 17 points and five steals, and Molly Calhoun collared 12 rebounds.

Sunnyside Christian 64, at Klickitat 10:

It was all over by halftime last Saturday as the visiting Knights scored 38 first-half points and held the Vandals to seven.

Klickitat, which scored in every quarter but the third, was led by Samantha Brewer's six points.

Emma Newhouse paced the Knights with 15 points and Melanie Van Wingerden added 10, including eight in Sunnyside's 23-point first quarter.

Riverside Christian 67, at Trout Lake/Glenwood 40:

Katie Yarnell and Liz Vogt combined for 26 points in the Eagle Mustangs' loss to the Crusaders last Saturday in Trout Lake.

Yarnell finished with 16 points and Vogt totaled 10 in a game Riverside led 20-7 after one quarter and 27-20 at halftime.

The third quarter made the difference, though. The Crusaders put in 16 points to the Eagle Mustangs' 10 to push their lead back into the double digits.

Madison Hahn led Riverside, which remained unbeaten in league play, with a career-high 35 points and 10 steals.

At Bickleton 40, Lyle/Wishram 34:

The host Pirates outscored the Cougars, 21-16, in the second half of their Jan. 15 league game.

Brittany Price scored a career- and game-high 16 points on 8-of-11 shooting and Tosha Cloud had 12 points and 11 rebounds for Lyle/Wishram, which led 10-8 after one quarter but fell behind 19-18 at the half.

"It was a close game throughout, with the final margin of victory coming in the closing minutes of the game," noted Cougars Coach Chris Barthlow. "We kind of ran out of gas on defense toward the end and let a couple of girls get behind us and get some easy shots to fall."

Katelynn Clinton led Bickleton with 12 points.
