6A BOYS BASKETBALL
Mount Hood Conference
OREGON CITY The Reynolds boys basketball team continued its climb up the Mount Hood Conference ladder, picking up its fourth straight win 64-54 at Oregon City on Tuesday night.
The Raiders took a 57-51 lead midway through the fourth quarter when Alec Baldridge sent a bounce pass through traffic that found teammate Dakota Ayala for a layup.
Oregon City cut the margin in half on a 3 by Briggs Young. The Pioneers had a chance to pull even when Reynolds bobbled the ball under its own basket, and Oregon City's Tanner Smith grabbed it out of the air. But he had a toe on the sideline, and Reynolds kept possession.
The Raiders secured the victory in the final minute after Jordan May stepped in front of an Oregon City pass and was fouled at the other end. He sank both free throws.
