It's a cakewalk for Clackamas girls


The Cavaliers hit a season high in a 74-20 trouncing of Lakeridge

It was a cakewalk for Clackamas High School’s girls basketball team Friday, as the Cavaliers cruised to a 74-20 victory over Lakeridge.

The Cavaliers were up 26-4 at the end of the first period and 45-12 at halftime.

It was the most points the fifth-ranked Cavaliers had scored all season and it was the lowest score by an opponent.

“None of the starters played for more than 12 minutes,” said Clackamas coach Todd Lane.

Freshman Peyton Carroll came off the bench to score a career-high 10 points. The 6-2 post also claimed seven rebounds.

Sydney Azorr (12 points), Carroll and Deeshyra Thomas (10 points) led a balanced offense that saw 11 players contribute points to Clackamas’ winning tally.

The Cavaliers (14-4, 3-1) play Canby (8-7, 2-2) on the road this Friday, and they travel to West Linn (9-9, 3-1) next Tuesday.

Clackamas guys dropped a tough one to Lakeridge on Friday. Lakeridge broke a close game open in the fourth quarter, when the Pacers outscored the Cavaliers 21-13, en route to a 70-59 victory.

Lakeridge guard Reggie Oliver was the Cavaliers’ nemesis. The 5-11 junior burned the nets for a game-high 34 points.

Brett Udland (20 points) and Andrew Gutwig (17 points) paced the Cavaliers in scoring.

Clackamas slipped to 1-3 in the TRL (8-9 overall) with the loss. Lakeridge improved to 3-1 (12-5 overall).

The Pacers entered play this week ranked 25th in the OSAA boys basketball power rankings, while Clackamas was ranked 21st.
