FOSTER OVERCOMES FLU, HELPS IMBLER BEAT JOSEPH

JOSEPH — It took a dominating fourth quarter Saturday for the Imbler High School basketball girls to finally fend off a scrappy Joseph team, and in particular red-hot Eagle Licia Miller.

Imbler (16-2 overall, 7-1 in Wapiti League), ranked No. 3 in the state but coming off a bad loss Friday at Grant Union, held just a 47-41 lead after three quarters. The Panthers won, thanks largely to an 18-6 fourth quarter.

Panthers' coach Dale Wagner wasn't happy with his team's defense.

"We're struggling defensively. We have to play better defense and get our act together," he said.

Miller had her best game of the year. She hit 14 field goals and scored 30 points to keep Joseph (3-11, 2-6) close most of the game. Imbler's Leanne Foster was hot, too — literally.

Wagner said Foster played with a fever of 102 degrees and he gave her much of the credit for the Panthers pulling out the win. She shot 50 percent from the floor, scored 24 points and hauled down 10 rebounds.

Imbler's depth also did in Joseph. While Miller had a spectacular game for the Eagles, Imbler got big contributions from five players — Foster, Emily Correll, Liz Woody, Tiffany Rasmussen and Amy Clerget — who all scored eight or more points. Correll added 14 rebounds.

Imbler hosts Union Friday, while Joseph travels to Nyssa.

La Grande girls can't overcome bad start against No. 1 Ontario

ONTARIO — A terrible first quarter and a huge gap in free throws were the difference as the No. 3-ranked La Grande girls narrowly lost on the road against No. 1-ranked Ontario.

La Grande scored just five points in the first quarter and never could catch up.

"We shot poorly," said coach Isaac Williams. "Every time we play there (in Ontario), we shoot miserably."

Ontario shot 27 free throws, making 19, compared to La Grande, which made 6 of 12. "That was tough to overcome," said Williams.

Williams said La Grande (11-7 overall, 4-2 in Greater Oregon League) made a couple of runs at Ontario (14-2, 6-0) in the second half, but there were a couple of costly turnovers at inopportune times that didn't help.

Still, with all these factors working against La Grande, Williams said there were positives to find in losing to the top-ranked 3A team in the state on its home floor by only six points.

"Obviously, it's really disappointing to lose, but if they really are the best team in the state, then we have a lot to feel good about," Williams said.

Christie Weaver led La Grande with 15 points, while Kayla Crouch scored 11.

La Grande kept Ontario's top player, Stephanie Hawk, under control, but Hawk did shoot 7-for-9 from the free-throw line. She ended with 16 points.

La Grande plays Saturday at Baker.

JV result — Ontario defeated La Grande.

Enterprise girls fend off pesky Elgin

ENTERPRISE — The Enterprise girls basketball team went up against a much younger and smaller squad from Elgin Saturday, controlled the action almost the whole game, but was given everything it could handle by the pesky Huskies.

Enterprise coach Mike Crawford said he wasn't disappointed with the game, though he felt Enterprise (6-10 overall, 5-3 in Wapiti League) didn't play well at times.

Elgin coach Randy McKone thought his kids played great. They bounced back from a 10-1 deficit in the first quarter to cut the score to 10-9, then cut a 19-9 Enterprise lead late in the second quarter to 23-18 at the half.

Not only were the Huskies (8-8 overall, 1-7 Wapiti League) without their leading scorer Amber Looslie, still out with a knee injury, they lost two of their post players — Tiffany Fincher and Josie Cross — for much of the game due to foul trouble.

Enterprise was led by Lacey Nobles, who had 10 points and 12 rebounds. Jessie Morgan had five points and 11 rebounds, while Kaitlin Baird had four points and 10 rebounds. Kayla Stoffel had 10 points.

Kim McCrae had nine points for Elgin, while Fincher scored eight.
