Hot-shooting Huskies take win over Wolfpack


by: PAMPLIN MEDIA GROUP: DAVID BALL - Portland Waldorf's Aubree Tolley catches a pass in front of a crowd of Open Door defenders during Friday's 60-49 road loss.

TROUTDALE — A hot start to the second half helped the Open Door girls basketball game put away Friday night’s 60-49 win over Portland Waldorf.

The Huskies took an eight-point lead into halftime, but that margin would grow before the teams came back to the court. Waldorf coach Terry Smith-Harris was hit with a technical foul on his way to the locker room, and Open Door’s Rachel Edie sank a free throw.

Open Door hit three of its first four shots in the second half, building a 40-24 lead after Amanda Powers came off the bench and converted a follow-up shot under the basket. Emily Sunderland hit a 3-pointer, and Edie scored on a fast break earlier in the scoring spree.

The Huskies would maintain a double-digit margin into the game’s final minute.

Open Door (5-5) moved into a tie with Waldorf for fourth place in the Valley 10 with a jumble of four teams battling for the league’s last two playoffs spots heading into the final weeks of the regular season.

Waldorf kept pace early in the game and the teams traded the lead three times in the first quarter before Open Door began to pull away just before halftime.

The Wolfpack’s Anya Conlon led all players with 32 points.

Waldorf won the boys matchup 51-46.
