Outlawed: Enterprise sweeps Elgin

ELGIN —  The Outlaws came out brandishing guns, but one didn’t fire.

Enterprise’s starting five faltered early on. Unfortunately for Elgin, the reserves didn’t. As Johnny Cash said, “If the right hand don’t get ya, the left hand will.”

That was the tune during the first half of a 40-38 win by the Outlaws.

Lady Mounties’ backups impress

It was Sunny Tuesday inside Quinn Coliseum.

That’s because EOU sophomore Sunny Nilson burned the nets with her laser-like shooting, leading the host Mounties to a 106-43 victory against Multnomah Bible.

Nilson was 15-for-21 from the field, finishing with 34 points, and her performance was labeled by EOU coach Anji Weissenfluh as “un-believable.”

Second candidate for EOU head coaching position announced

The Eastern Oregon University athletics department has released the name of the second candidate for the vacant head football coaching position.

UNION — Union followed a step forward with two steps back.

The Bobcats dropped a home affair with Stanfield 75-68 Saturday.

Less than 24-hours before, Union beat Heppner with a buzzer-beater. The Bobcats started slow against the visiting Tigers in what turned out to be a yo-yo act.

Blue Mountain Conference leader Stanfield jumped out on a 12-0 run through the opening three minutes of the game.

EOU men bounce back, remain atop Cascade Conference

ASHLAND —- Still in first place.

That’s what came out of this weekend for EOU men’s basketball.

The Mounties defeated host Southern Oregon, 88-74 on Saturday night, finishing the weekend with a split, finishing with a first-place tie atop the Cascade Conference standings.

Still in first place. That’s all that matters.

As for the victory, the Mounties’ Mark Carollo had 19 points and 10 rebounds — one of the more “efficient” games he’s had this season, said EOU coach Ryan Looney.

Imbler clinches Old Oregon League title

MILLSY: Imbler sophomore guard Bryan Mills scored 17 points Saturday versus Pine Eagle. Mills’ Panthers clinched the Old Oregon League title with the win, earning the No. 1 seed for OSAA Districts. Imbler has two games left on the regular season schedule, staring with Cove at 7:30 p.m. Friday. The Observer/BRUCE MASON
IMBLER — It started calmly, like a pot sitting atop an unheated stove.

But then the temperature dial turned, the pressure and heat rose, and soon enough, it was boiling and sizzling all over the place.

That was the case Saturday at Imbler High, as the host Panthers slowly gained steam, ignited in the third quarter, then ran away with a 67-40 victory against visiting Pine Eagle.

On Friday, they defeated Powder Valley in an Old Oregon League showdown. On Saturday, the task was finished.

OOL Champs.

Old Oregon League slugfest: Imbler wins

IMBLER —Badgers players walked off the hardwood, heads down, faces sour, just like a fighter leaving the ring.

They took Panther punches early, responded defiantly with jabs and hooks late, but in the end, there was Imbler, walking out of the ring victoriously, 58-50.

Panther TKO.

The heavyweight belt stays here.

McClune halts Rockets

EXTRA WEIGHT: Elgin post Jess McClune attempts to carry Pilot Rock defender Amylee Perrine on her back while scoring a basket. The Huskies rallied to win 43-39 Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
Whoever thought girls basketball wasn’t physical better think again.

Elgin survived a war in the paint to beat Pilot Rock 43-39.

Jess McClune called an early stop to some rough play.

“There was a girl throwing elbows after the whistle was blown,” McClune said. “I got a concussion last time we played. I don’t mind playing rough, but at least play fair.”
