IRRIGON — Irrigon, ranked No. 1 among OSAA 2A schools, pounded Weston-McEwen Saturday, 65-40, in a Blue Mountain Conference boys basketball game.

Lance Thacker scored 16 and Tyler Peterson 15 in the loss.

The Knights hit nine 3-pointers.

“They have four or five kids who can flat out shoot the basketball,” W-M coach Brian Pickard said. “They play full court pressure defense and drop back in man-to-man in the half court. They really get in your face.”

On Friday, W-M fell to No. 3 Pilot Rock Rockets, 62-61, on a Rockets’ buzzer beater shot from the foul line.

Jacob Ramirez came close to a triple-double with 11 points, 10 assists and nine steals.

W-M (8-6 overall, 3-3 BMC) hosts Union Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
