IMBLER, COVE GIRLS POUND FOES

By The Observer

COVE Tiffany Rasmussen stole the show again Friday night.

Three days after scoring 20 points in Imblers season-opener, the Panther junior scored 22 points to beat the La Grande JV 46-30 at the Cove Booster Club Tournament.

Rasmussen scored her teams first eight points as Imbler took a 12-0 lead after the first quarter.

Still, Imbler coach Dale Wagner wasnt impressed with his teams intensity.

We didnt play as a cohesive team as we did Tuesday night, Wagner said.

Rasmussen shot 57 percent from the field. Liz Woody had eight steals for Imbler (2-0), which plays Cove this evening in a rematch of last years tournament championship game.

Amber Rasmussen led the La Grande JV with 12 points. La Grande will play Echo this afternoon.

Mann, Scheele lead Cove

COVE Kathy Mann scored 16 of her team-high 18 points in the first half Friday to lift the Cove Leopards to a 52-25 victory over the Echo Cougars in the Cove Booster Club Tournament.

She was just on fire in the first half, Cove coach Dick Royes said.

Lisa Scheele added 17 points for Cove (1-1).

Lisa played a real solid game with 17 points and no turnovers. Im real pleased with that, Royes said.

Echo had sort of a hard time handling the press, Royes added. We just sort of jumped on them quick and maintained the lead the rest of the game.

Enterprise cruises

ENTERPRISE There was no need for a late-game run for Enterprise this time.

Last week, Enterprise stayed close with Ione until the end of the third quarter. On Friday, Enterprise didnt need a late run as it beat the visiting Cardinals 62-41 in the Winter Classic Tournament.

We were playing all over and making moves in the right direction, Enterprise coach Mike Crawford said.

Enterprise (3-0) took a 37-11 halftime lead and received balanced scoring throughout the contest.

Ashley Anderson had 12 points, and Lacey Nobles and Justinn Christensen added 11 apiece. Nine players scored for Enterprise.

Ione was led by Ameillia Pecks game-high 20 points.

Enterprise takes on second-ranked Pilot Rock for the tournament title today.

Condon beats Elgin

UMATILLA Elgin played a dead-even second half but couldnt rally past Condon Saturday.

The Huskies fell behind by eight in the first half en route to a 37-29 loss at the Umatilla Tournament.

We keep failing miserably in the second quarter, Elgin coach Randy McKone said.

McKone was impressed with Elgins defense, though, against the Class 1As top-ranked team.

Our biggest problem was on the offensive side, he said.

Ashley Rysdam led Elgin (1-1) with seven points. Jessica Snyder had 16 points for Condon.

Elgin plays Helix today.

Pilot Rock zaps Wallowa

ENTERPRISE Greg Oveson felt that only one quarter was a bad one for his Wallowa team when it played Pilot Rock Friday.

The Cougars were defeated 77-31 against the Class 2As second-ranked team at the Winter Classic.

Pilot Rock is a really good team, but even with the ugly score I dont feel like we got beat by 46 points, Oveson said. In the third quarter we stunk it up, but the rest of the game I felt good about it.

Mysha Oveson led Wallowa (1-1) with eight points. Erin McLaughlin had 23 for Pilot Rock.

Wallowa plays Ione today.

Shes a good little shooter, Joseph coach Wendy McDaniel said of Rietmann.

Lacey Matteson added 17 points for Heppner. Even with a hand in her face she wasnt afraid to shoot it, McDaniel said of her.

Marsing upends Union

HALFWAY Marsing, Idaho, had stronger basketball legs Friday than the Union Bobcats.

Marsing got 19 points from Brandy Chaclez and a 52-33 victory over Union at the Pine Eagle tournament.

Weve got to get in better basketball condition, Union coach Wayne Herron said. This is the seventh game for Marsing. They start their basketball season two weeks before we do.

Union (1-2) stayed with Marsing through the first quarter but fell behind 23-14 at halftime and 38-20 after three quarters.

Kallin Prince and Shonda Titus each scored 10 points for the Bobcats, who play Powder Valley this afternoon in the tournament consolation game.
