ONALASKA — Ashton Height erupted for 26 points and Onalaska thumped Mossyrock in an 80-42 Central 2B League win on Saturday at home.
The Loggers rebounded from a 63-45 loss to Toutle Lake Friday night by flipping the script on Mossyrock. Onalaska coach Wayne Nelson said Toutle is likely the best team in the C2B.
“At least it gets the bad taste out of your mouth,” Onalaska coach Wayne Nelson said.
Carter Whitehead contributed 15 points and Kayden Allison added 14 in the win as the Loggers outrebounded the Vikings 39-18 to dominate in the post. Haight, who also collected seven rebounds, had his best performance of the year, Nelson said.
“It was a slow first quarter but we started playing better,” Nelson said.
Mossyrock, which lost its 11-straight game, was led by Dyllan Padrick’s 11 points, and Ryan Bellino’s eight.
Onalaska (10-3, 3-2) hosts Kalama at 7 p.m. on Tuesday. Mossyrock (2-12, 0-5) hosts Napavine at 7 p.m. Wednesday, the first of four straight home games for the Vikings.
Trojans clobbered by Life Christian
PE ELL — The Trojans were no match for Life Christian’s offensive firepower, namely junior Omari Maulana, who threw down four dunks and exploded for a game-high 35 points, and Pe Ell fell 98-44 Saturday at home.
Three Trojans registered double-digit scoring, led by Kollin Jurek’s 11, Jeremiah Yost’s 10 and Max Smith’s 10, but Pe Ell struggled to slow a Life Christian team that Trojans’ coach Clayburn Lusk called the best out of both the Central 2B and the Pacific leagues.
“They’re big, athletic and good basketball players we faced tonight,” Lusk said.
Pe Ell shot just 27 percent from the field, hampered by a Life Christian squad that pressed until the final minutes, even when Lusk sent out his bench and JV players late in the final quarter.
“At times we played good, but the wheels fell off in the fourth quarter,” Lusk said. “We got away from what we do good. It’s a life lesson, you’ve got to keep playing.”
Pe Ell (4-10, 3-9) travels to Raymond at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
