Boys basketball: 'Mooks sting Scappoose in 2 OT

Scappoose drops to 1-3 in Cowpa League play


With nearly three-quarters of the season already in the books, the Scappoose boys have had their fair share of heartbreaking results. Few can stand toe-to-toe with the final score from Tillamook on Friday night.

Scappoose (13-5, 1-3 Cowapa) got off to a red-hot start but gave up a ten point lead, eventually falling 83-72 in double overtime.

The Indians led 23-12 after the first eight minutes, but trailed Tillamook 37-32 at halftime. The second half saw an excellent defensive effort for the visitors, giving Scappoose a 47-43 edge heading to the final period, but the 'Mooks were able to rally and force overtime.

The teams were tied after the first extra period, but the Cheesemakers shut down Scappoose in the second and outscored the Indians by 11 to win going away.

Scappoose, who has lost four of their last six after starting the season at 11-1, are now tied with Astoria for fifth in the six-team Cowapa League. The Indians will play host to Banks on Tuesday evening at 5:30 p.m.
