Boys basketball: Tribe's win over YC sets up massive 4A showdown

Scappoose scores 80 points to beat Yamhill-Carlton, and will host No. 2 Philomath on Tuesday


If ever there was a test of the Indians' one-game, one-play mentality, it was a tough challenge on the road at Yamhill-Carlton on Friday evening.

Win, and they'd walk in to a home match up with No. 2 Philomath for their next game. Lose, and it might be the toughest bounceback game of the season.

Scappoose played tight through three quarters, holding a 39-36 edge at the break and leading 58-55 heading to the final period.

That's where the Tribe offense kicked into high gear and torched Yamhill-Carlton for 22 fourth-quarter points to pull away and win 80-69.

The Indians' 80 points are the most in the last decade, and garantueed a massive showdown on Tuesday with a one-loss Warrior squad which has yet to lose to an Oregon team this season. The Indians and Warriors will tip shortly after 7 p.m. on Tuesday evening.
