UNION — Cove's Lisa Scheele and Union's Kallin Prince got into a shoot-out Saturday at the Lions Club Tournament in Union; and in the end, it was Scheele's team that came out on top.

Scheele hit three treys and scored 24 points to lead Cove to a 57-42 win. Prince hit five three-pointers and scored 25 points.

Union stayed close with the No. 1 ranked Leopards until the fourth quarter, when Cove outscored the Bobcats 17-8 to cruise to a win.

"It was a good basketball game until halfway through the fourth," said Union coach Wayne Herron. "We played with them for over three quarters."

Cove coach Dick Royes said, "The game was much closer than the final score. It was a game of runs and Cove got the last point swing."

Kelcie Robinson scored 12 for Cove, and Kathy Mann hit two threes and scored 10. Jana Brotherton scored 11 for Union.

Overall, Scheele had a great tournament, as she scored 27 against Lapwai Friday.

"It's fun to watch someone like Lisa Scheele knock down 51 points in two days," said Royes.

Union plays Saturday at Riverside in Boardman, and Cove goes to Imbler Friday to play in the Imbler tournament.

Powder Valley girls faced Lapwai

UNION —The Powder Valley basketball girls found out what a stifling defense looks like.

The girls had to go up against Lapwai in the Lions Club Tournament final in Union Saturday night. Not only is Lapwai a 2A-equivalent school, the Wildcats are the defending Idaho state champions. Lapwai won the game 62-33.

"It was good for (Powder Valley) to see how good defense can be," said Badgers coach Allen Bingham. "They (Lapwai) were an excellent team. I told the girls afterward, ‘The bad news is they thumped us. The good news is they play in Idaho.'"

The Wildcats not only threw a variety of smothering defenses at Powder Valley, they also hit a slew of outside shots, including a 35-foot buzzer-beater.

Joelle Bain led the Badgers in scoring with 12 points.

Powder Valley plays again Friday at the Pine-Eagle Tournament.

Cove boys clamp down on Powder Valley

UNION — The Cove boys blew open a close game against Powder Valley Saturday night en route to a 68-41 win at the Lions Club Tournament in Union.

That final score doesn't give much of an indication of how close this game was at the half. Cove clung to a 31-26 lead at the break, but used tough defense to clamp down on the Badgers, holding them to only 15 second-half points.

"I was real happy with the game. I was pretty happy with the Lapwai game," said Cove coach Todd Gorham. Cove lost to Lapwai, but was competitive against the defending Idaho state champion.

"I didn't have our team nearly as prepared as coach Gorham," said Powder Valley coach Blake Jones.

Justin Marler had a huge game for Cove, hitting 13-of-18 on his free throws and scoring 23 points total. John Pfel scored 11, while Josh Pfel scored 10 for the Leopards. For the Badgers, Cody Taylor led the way with 12 points, while David Dozhier scored 11.

Cove also hit 6-for-9 on its three pointers.

There were 48 total fouls and 60 free-throw attempts in this game. "I'd like to cut down on the fouling," said Gorham.

Cove next plays Friday at the Imbler Tournament, while Powder Valley plays Friday at the Pine-Eagle Tournament.

Lapwai beats Union in tourney finale

UNION — The Union boys found out the hard way that a team that wins the state championship in Idaho is probably really good.

The Lapwai boys, defending 2A champs from Idaho, won the Lions Club finale Saturday 92-29.

"We started off with a win (over Powder Valley Friday). That's what's important," said Union coach James Freitag.

Freitag said Lapwai was an athletic and fluid team. Lapwai's Julian Bronson hit six three-pointers and scored 31 points.

"I was impressed with Bronson. He could play small college ball," said Freitag.

Jeremy Shankel scored eight points to lead Union. He ended the tournament averaging 16.

The Union boys play Friday at Riverside.

Lapwai 27 24 25 15 — 92
