UMATILLA - The Weston-McEwen girls were down 11 points with only three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter against Umatilla Saturday night and made a small comeback, but ultimately fell 43-47.

Senior Morgan Entze led Weston-McEwen in their close game with 18 points, nine rebounds, and four free-throws.

"Our biggest goal for the game was to limit their top scorers (Cardenas and Siler) from getting the shot," said W-M coach Amber Doremus, "and get some good opportunities for our offense to score."

During the fourth quarter W-M sent Umatilla to the free-throw line 14 times; Umatilla made nine of those shots.

"Tonight's game will give us a good idea how we will fair against Pilot Rock," Doremus said.

"It was a physical game with 27 personal fouls for Westen-McEwen and 20 for Umatilla," Doremus said "The free throws are where we made our comeback tonight and what made it such a close game.

"My girls are hard working and ready to get back in the gym for practice on Monday."

Westen-McEwen plays Riverside at home next Saturday.
