COVE'S BENCH COMES TO THE RESCUE

By Raenelle Kwock

Observer Staff Writer

COVE — After Cove starter Kelcie Robinson limped off the court in the third quarter, the o. 1 Leopards still defeated Powder Valley 47-36 Friday thanks to their depth and key baskets by Amy Puckett.

Cove coach Dick Royes said the bench was the difference when Robinson left.

"They did a great job," he said.

With 3:21 to go in the third quarter and the Leopards leading 29-19 in the Old Oregon League game, Robinson fell to the floor and had to leave the game with a sprained right ankle.

Royes said Robinson will be out maybe two weeks. She will definitely sit out today's game against Crane.

Puckett sunk her fourth basket of the third quarter off an assist from Lisa Scheele to give Cove a 33-24 lead with 2:10 left in the third.

Scheele picked up her fourth foul soon after and had to sit. With Scheele on the bench and Robinson hurt, the Badgers went inside to Jenny Dayhoff, as she powered her way up for a basket. The Badgers trailed 33-26 with 1:44 remaining.

Kathy Mann's steal and lay-up with 14 seconds in the quarter put the Leopards ahead 35-26 heading into the fourth.

Kara Mann's basket at the start of the fourth put the Leopards up 37-26.

The Badgers cut the deficit to eight points more than once during the fourth quarter, but Cove always answered with a basket to keep the Badgers at bay.

After Kali Miller's basket with 3:27 in the game, the Leopards' Cassie Mills scored to push the score to 43-33.

A Hailee Bingham three-pointer brought the Badgers to within 44-36, but Scheele hit a three to push the lead back to 47-36 with 1:04 to go.

Scheele led the Leopards with 12 points. Bain had 11 for the Badgers. The Badgers will host Crane next Friday.

Wallowa girls escape with win over Adrian

Oveson said he was just glad to get out of Adrian with a win because the Antelope's gym is small and dark.
