Sandy 67 Hood River 54
Jon Ing led the Eagles with 14 points, but the Pioneers were able to answer every Hood River run with a key shot to keep the lead. Coach Zach Pauls credited Ing and Shay Huskey for pushing an up tempo offense, and Huskey added 11 points to the effort.
K.C. Christensen added 9 points for the Eagles (1-18, 0-8 MHC), while Ryan Trosko led the Pioneers (4-15, 3-5 MHC) with 19 points.
Cascade Locks 49 Helix 41
The Cascade Locks Pirates (11-9, 7-6 Big Sky) snapped a four game losing streak with a win against Helix Saturday night. After getting down early the Pirates overwhelmed the Grizzlies (13-8, 7-6 Big Sky) in the fourth quarter with repeated fast breaks.
Derek Kelly led the Pirates with 19 points and Derek Harbaugh added 12 points. Chris Taylor contributed nine points to the winning effort.
Horizon 73 Condon-Wheeler 56
Cameron Root scored 21 points and Bobby Cofrances added 20 points for the Hawks as they firmed up their hold on the No. 2 seed in the Big Sky West division for district playoffs. Horizon used a 17-5 run in the second quarter to put distance between the two sides, and was able to keep Condon-Wheeler (8-13, 6-8 Big Sky) out of the game in the second half.
“I’m very, very pleased with the game Josh Larson had,” Horizon Coach Ron Haynes said. “He showed great patience and took what the defense allowed him to take.”
Larson contributed 14 points and 7 rebounds to the win.
Horizon 68 Dufur 56
Cameron Root scored 27 points and Bobby Cofrances added 17 as the Hawks (16-5, 10-3 Big Sky) put a feisty Dufur (9-11, 6-7 Big Sky) team away with an 8-0 run in the second half to get control of the game.
Helix 47 Cascade Locks 43
Heather Mohr scored 17 points to lead the Pirates (6-13, 3-10 Big Sky), but a lack of offensive consistency by Cascade Locks in the first half allowed the Grizzlies (18-3, 11-2 Big Sky) to pick up the win.
Although the Pirates stormed back in the second, Helix regained its balance in the final minutes and were able to put the game out of reach.
