POMEROY — Despite a fourth-quarter comeback, the Pomeroy High girls’ basketball team suffered its first loss of the season Friday night, falling 38-37 to Oakesdale in a Southeast 1B League game.

Maddy Dixon collected 24 points and 13 rebounds for the Pirates, who won the fourth quarter 17-9.

The Pirates came up short due to late missed free throws and opportunities.

“We got our momentum and spark back too late in the game,” Pomeroy coach Tai Bye said. “We just didn’t have enough tome to finish on top.”

Lapwai 72, Genesee 59

GENESEE — After a tight opening half, visiting Lapwai took over late to best Genesee and remain unbeaten in Whitepine League Division I play.

The Wildcats (17-1, 10-0) trailed 17-13 through the first quarter before rallying to a single-point lead at 29-28 by the half. They widened that gap by six points apiece in the third and fourth quarters.

“We regrouped mentally,” said Lapwai interim coach Ada Marks. “The second half we came through a lot better finishing, getting some end-runs, doing our best to make sure we had some offensive rebounds.”

Glory Sobotta had a perfect 6-for-6 showing from the foul line and led eight Wildcat scorers with 18 total points, while teammate Lauren Gould provided a double-double of 11 points and 12 rebounds.

DEARY — Deary sparked a 13-2 run going into halftime and never trailed again in a Whitepine League Division II matchup against Timberline.

Reardan 55, Colfax 53 (OT)

REARDAN, Wash. — A would-be tying field goal and putback attempt both rolled out in the final four seconds of overtime, and visiting Colfax fell in a nailbiter to Northeast 2B League opponent Reardan.

The Bulldogs (11-6, 5-4) raced to a 15-3 start and were up 17-8 through the opening quarter, but Reardan slowly battled its way back. The Indians (8-7, 5-3) took a two-point lead in the final minute of regulation before Asher Cai of Colfax hit two free throws in the closing seconds to force overtime.

Cai also provided all six Colfax points in overtime and was the game’s top scorer with a total of 27. Teammate Kierstyn York joined her in double digits at 12 points.

“The girls played with a lot of energy to start the game,” said Colfax coach Corey Baerlocher. “I told them after the game, ‘Unfortunately, basketball comes down to making layins and free throws, and we’ve got to work on finishing.’ I told them, ‘I cannot fault you for your heart.’”
