Mac-Hi falls to Union, Imbler at Cove Tournament

Advertisement

COVE, Ore. — Mac-Hi outrebounded Union and committed less turnovers by a healthy margin Saturday night at the Cove Tournament in Cove, Ore., but still couldn’t come away with their second win of the year, falling 43-35 to the Bobcats.

Post Derek Richwine led the Pioneers with 13 points on five field goals and 3-of-6 shooting from the stripe. Saul Ortiz landed a pair of 3-pointers and a free throw to score seven.

“The biggest thing for me, is that after our loss to (Walla Walla Valley Academy) they responded well,” Mac-Hi coach Travis Chester said. “They played some good defense and they regrouped defensively. I think it was pretty evident that we played a lot of games this week — we had some struggles finishing around the hoop — but I was happy with how we played defensively.”

Mac-Hi lost the opening round of the Cove Tournament Friday night, 51-45, to Imbler.

It doesn’t get any easier, as Mac-Hi (1-3) hosts DeSales Monday at 7:30 p.m.
