MILTON-FREEWATER — The Mac-Hi girls utilized their superior height and Grant Union’s poor free-throw shooting to upend the Prospectors 44-31 here Friday in a non-league prep basketball game.
Mac-Hi was led by 6-foot post Sierra Burchell’s 26 points and Casey Erm’s nine rebounds.
No Prospectors scored in double figures.
"It was much closer than the score looked," Pioneers coach Curtis Pumphrey said. "It was a very intense game. Both teams pressed. We were down three in the third quarter, but Burchell made some big shots down the stretch to win it for us.
"The other team didn’t have a girl over 5-8, so we worked inside," Pumphrey added. "(Belen) Betancourt and (Andrea) Roeder did a great job of getting the ball to Burchell, and Erm came up big off the bench with those nine rebounds.
Grant Union didn’t help its cause by shooting a miserable 2-for-17 from the free-throw line.

W-P 41, W-M 36


WAITSBURG — Genesis Pearson posted a double-double — 12 points and 17 rebounds — to lead Waitsburg-Prescott to a 41-36 non-conference girls basketball victory over Weston-McEwen here Friday.


W-M grabbed a two point lead after one quarter and took a 19-18 lead to intermission. W-P then outscored the TigerScots 23-17 in the second half to pull out the win.


"It was back and forth all the way," W-P coach Jerry Baker said. "We got hurt on the offensive boards as they had 19 (offensive rebounds). We did not do a good job of blocking out. It was a good, physical game and in the fourth, and we finally made some free throws."


Sydney Porter led all TigerScot scorers with 16 points. Jessica Stevens added eight points, and Morgan Entze grabbed a team-leading 10 rebounds in the season opener for the TigerScots.


Megan Withers chipped in eight and Taelor Carter added seven as W-P evened its record at 1-1.

Helix 60, Touchet 35


TOUCHET — A three-clawed Grizzly attack proved too much for the Indians here Friday night as the Helix girls downed Touchet 60-45 in a non-league prep basketball game.

"Helix is one of the best teams in the state (of Oregon) in Class 1A," Touchet coach Scott Pumphrey said. "We were able to hurt them on the inside the last time we played (Tuesday). They took that away from us tonight, and it took us three quarters to figure it out.


"On the scoreboard we lost, but over all the experienced helped us."

Nixyaawii 57, Yakima Tribal 33


MISSION — Nixyaawii’s Golden Eagles beat Yakima Tribal School 57-33 here Friday night in the Nixyaawii Invitational girls basketball tournament.


"We didn’t play real well," Nixyaawii coach Jeremy Maddern said of his team’s season-opening game. "There were a lot of fouls in the first half and sloppy play on both sides of the ball. In the second half, we played better."


Suzzette White-Owl made 10 field goals and led Nixyaawii with 20 points. Chelsey Minthorn shot well from the line and made three field goals to score 13 points for the Eagles.


Yakima Tribal scored fewer than 10 points in the first and third quarters.


"Leona Benoist clogged up the middle and led us in the rebounds. She did a real good job," Maddern said.


Nixyaawii outrebounded Yakima Tribal 36-19 and outscored them in all four quarters, en route to a 24-point victory.


"We didn’t shoot all that well for the game from field and line, but it was our first game," Maddern said. "Overall, I was pleased with the effort."
