WAITSBURG - Zach Bartlow led the Waitsburg-Prescott boys with 22 points en route to a 58-50 Southeast 2B basketball victory over Walla Walla Valley Academy here Tuesday night.

"We played two good quarters." coach T.J. Scott said. "We followed our game plan for the first and third quarters, shutting down their top scorers.

"Then, after the first quarter, we relaxed and didn't take care of the ball."

W-P ended the first quarter with a 20-8 lead. But the Knights outscored W-P 19-11 in the second quarter to draw with four at the half.

W-P came out of the locker room in full throttle mode in the second half, and held the Knights to six points while scoring 18 of its own.

WWVA's Matt Moore shot 12-of-14 from the free-throw line as he led the Knights with 16 points. Teammate Jordan Schutte added 12 points, with Daniel Lomeland throwing in 10 more.

"We had the possibilities, but not the mindset to bury them tonight," Scott said. "We were outworked and didn't move our feet. If we win on Saturday against Asotin, that will give us a second-place seat."

W-P's record is 7-7 overall and 4-2 in league as Asotin comes to town Saturday.

"At the end of the day, it is still a win, though," Scott said.

"A league game on the road is always tough," WWVA coach Scott Wagner said. "We dug a hole in the first quarter, but came back and made it a game in the second.

"Moore kept us in the game with his shooting average from the line, while Matt Hanson played very good defense."

WWVA's record is 7-5 overall and 3-4 in league, and the Knights head to Dayton on Thursday.
