BAKER CITY — The Cove boys kept coming back against a hot-shooting Monument-Dayville team Thursday, but the Tigers' Travis Moore hit too many key three-pointers in a 64-52 win.

Moore, a 5-foot-10 fireplug, hit six treys and scored 22 points as Monument-Dayville fended off several Cove comebacks.

The loss ends Cove's quest for the state tournament. The boys came off a three-win season last year to go 13-7 this year and share the Old Oregon League title with Jordan Valley.

"We came a long ways," said coach Todd Gorham. "We won three out of our last four last year and we kind of took off from where we left off last year. It was a great season."

Gorham said every time Cove surged back against the Tigers, they seemed to fall one big shot or big play short.

"If we could've got one more shot to do go down, we could've come back," he said. "I don't want to make any excuses. Monument shot really well."

Cove was also hurt by foul trouble. Justin Marler and Chris Taylor both picked up quick, early fouls and both ended up fouling out.

Moore got off in the first half, busting open a 20-18 game in the second quarter by hitting three straight treys to open up a 29-18 Tigers' lead.

Cove cut the deficit to 34-26 at the half by going to a press, forcing three turnovers and hitting six straight free throws in the final minute.

The Tigers again surged, getting ahead 40-26 in the third quarter, but senior Justin Marler responded with a pair of treys to make the score 40-32.

Moore came back with a trey of his own, only to be answered by Cove's Josh Pfel with a three-pointer as the third quarter ended with the Tigers holding a 49-41 lead.

Monument-Dayville dominated the fourth quarter, opening up a 64-45 lead until cruising over the final couple of minutes.

Cove was led by Josh Pfel with 14 and John Pfel with 12.

Cove played Friday morning in a consolation game against Crane, which lost to Spray Thursday 51-48.
