Watchmen turn the tables on Siletz Valley
Sports round-up Both the boys and girls team avenge season-opening losses to the Warriors
BEAVERTON Neither of C.S. Lewis Academys basketball teams were sharp in season-opening losses to Siletz Valley and the Watchmen drove that point home last week by topping the Warriors in both rematches Saturday.
The CSLA girls fell 24-21 in the season opener, but pulled away in the third quarter Saturday for a 30-19 victory that saw Lana Friedrich score 14 points.
We should have beat them in the first game, to be honest, but things just werent clicking for us, head coach Jeremy Friedrich said.
The win capped a busy week, as the Watchmen played three games in four days.
The C.S. Lewis Academy girls (2-4) snapped a three-game losing skid to open the season by downing Horizon Christian (Tualatin) 31-20 at home Dec. 11. Friedrich put up a game-high 16 points, with Halah Grobey adding nine and Katelyn Reimer six.
C.S. Lewis got off to a good start at Southwest Christian on Dec. 13, leading 13-9 after one quarter, but the Wildcats switched from a full-court press to a half-court trap beginning in the second quarter and ran off with a 52-37 victory. Friedrich scored a season-high 22 in the loss.
The boys team had its contest versus Portland Waldorf cancelled Dec. 11, but also faced off against Southwest Christian Dec. 13, falling 53-43. The Watchmen turned around to gain a measure of revenge by besting Siletz Valley 67-54 Saturday.
Newberg 63, Madison 34 Tori Eichten scored 17 points Dec. 13 as the Tigers pulled its starters by the end of the third quarter. Hannah Hetzler scored nine points, with Sabrina Salmons and Hannah Green posting eight apiece. Newberg (2-1) outscored the Senators 18-4 in the third quarter to pull away.
Powder Valley 74, St. Paul 42 The Bucks played well Dec. 13 in half-court situations, both offensively and defensively, but were unable to slow down the Badgers in transition. Cody Southerland finished with a team-high 15 points for St. Paul, which also got 13 points from Cody Faber. We didnt play poorly, head coach Vince Drago said. We just got beat by a better team.
Condon/Wheeler 47, St. Paul 45 The Bucks were undone by a poor shooting performance Saturday against the Knights, who held a two-point lead with 10 seconds to play. St. Paul inbounded the ball and managed a good look from 10 feet, but the shot did not fall. Southerland again paced the Bucks (0-2), who played C.S. Lewis Tuesday (results not available at press time) and Perrydale on Friday, with 19 points.
