Buffaloes stampede EHS girls basketball

by: Clinton Vining, Estacada senior Melita Elliot (3) drives around her Madras defender in Saturday night’s game.

The Lady Rangers began the 2006-2007 basketball season last week with two losses.

Scappoose beat the Estacada girls 59-28 at Scappoose on Thursday, Nov. 30. Two nights later, in Estacada, the White Buffaloes of Madras beat the Lady Rangers 51-41.

Estacada scored first and grabbed three offensive rebounds the next time down the court to start the game against Madras Saturday night, but Madras took the reins from there. A bucket, a couple of free throws and three straight 3-pointers later, the White Buffaloes were off and running.

Estacada is scheduled to play Junction City at home on Susan Campbell Court at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 9. Then they'll travel to Astoria next week to play the Fishermen on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. and play at Elmira at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 15.
