Beavers Drop Regular Season Finale to Eagles


Scoring just 12 points in the second half, the Tenino boys basketball team ended its regular season run with a 62-39 loss to Elma on the road Tuesday night. 

The Beavers lost their third straight game, all in league play, to close out the regular season, but will advance to play in the District 4 tournament next week as either the three or four seed in the 1A Evergreen league. 

Tuesday night, though the Beavers held on to a one-point halftime lead, they scored just one point in the third quarter, and totaled 12 in the second half, dooming their chances at a road league win. 

The Eagles outscored the Beavers, 35-12, in the second half. 

Austin Gonia led Tenino with 14 points, and Noah Schow added 12.
