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

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.”

Huskies trapped by large hole

MILLER TIME: Elgin sophomore Kyle MIller led his team with 18 points Friday. The Huskies fell 75-53 to visiting Pilot Rock. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
ELGIN — Soon the Huskies will find out digging holes isn't a lot of fun especially when they’re deep.

Elgin fell behind early during 75-53 loss to the Mustangs Friday.

Heppner led by as much as 23 points. Time after time the Huskies trimmed the lead back to 10 points, but couldn’t get any closer.

EOU keeps pace by silencing Owls

KLAMATH FALLS — The first-place showdown is all set.

EOU women’s basketball took care of business Friday night, defeating host Oregon Tech, 56-50.

The Mounties (18-2, 12-1 CCC) will play at Southern Oregon tonight at 5:30 for the right to own sole possession of first place.

No backyard?

No problem.

No problem if you want to participate in the 11th annual Great Backyard Bird Count.

Former Mountaineer drafted by the AAFL

Circumstances took hits on Nick Hannah’s dreams the last three years.

Now Hannah is preparing to hit back.

The 2005 graduate of EOU received a call during the All American Football League draft in January.

Hard Facts: Mouthy fan undermines Blazers

PORTLAND — People who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

This seemingly simple lesson reared its ugly head in Portland.

One person single-handedly beat the Trail Blazers Wednesday.

No, not LeBron James — although he certainly had a hand in it.

La Grande girls win handily

They started like predators lying in the grassland, patiently waiting to strike.

Then the ambush came, the prey fell to the ground, and standing alone on top were those fierce mammals from La Grande.

That was the case Wednesday night, as the host Tigers fed upon visiting Pioneers, attacking viciously in the second quarter, en route to a 49-28 victory.

Showdown in Imbler

The sequel has arrived: No.8-ranked Imbler vs. No.10-ranked Powder Valley.

 Two talented boys varsity basketball teams. Two good coaches. Two Old Oregon League schools with strong support that will likely pack the Imbler gym at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

It doesn’t get much better than this ... unless they meet in the OSAA playoffs, of course.

You know, the saying, “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing?”

Yes. That one.
