Tribe girls edge Astoria; fall to YC

After stressful week, Lady Indians pull off league win
by: John Brewington DRIVING—Scappoose’s Alix Raya makes a move to the basket during Friday’s win over Astoria.

Considering the draining effects of the week, the Scappoose Lady Indians did a good job posting a 29-25 win over visiting Astoria on Friday night.

The game came just 24 hours after a make-up game loss to Yamhill-Carlton on Thursday night. The Scappoose girls had been up until midnight the night before. With no school because of the snow, the girls hadn't even practiced.

'We got back Thursday night (from YC) after midnight. Most of the team had to get up by 6-6:30 a.m. the next day. They were mentally and physically exhausted,' Scappoose coach Buell Gonzales said.

'They were a little erratic, but they played really hard. I thought were more aggressive. We put up more shots. We need to shoot more. Sometimes I think were trying to run the play rather than shooting,' Gonzales added.

Scappoose managed to forge a slim 6-5 lead after the first quarter, but dominated the second period. They limited Astoria to just one field goal in the period and took a 15-7 lead by halftime.

The Lady Fishermen had a narrow edge in the second half, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Tribe' advantage.

'It was a rough week, considering the weather, but the girls came out and did what they had to do. I'm really happy for them,' the coach concluded.

Scappoose is now 1-1 in league, 9-7 on the season. They were slated to host Tillamook on Tuesday and go to Banks this Friday. They are at Seaside this coming Tuesday.

Lady Indians fall to Yamhill-Carlton

The Scappoose Lady Indians never really got their offense going on Thursday, losing to Yamhill-Carlton, 38-26.

Scappoose only scored nine points in the first half, and had just 14 through three periods in the make-up game.

YC took a 16-4 lead in the first period and were up 26-9 by halftime. The Lady Tigers' Kaylie Boschma led the game in scoring with 13.

Zoey Hendryx led Scappoose with eight points.

The game was originally slated for Tuesday, but postponed to Thursday because of snow.
