UP FOR THE BALL: Cove's Keri Reynolds (23) and Imbler's Sarah Hill (54) battle for a rebound Monday. ().

IMBLER — Defense and timely shooting carried the Imbler girls to a 43-31 win over Cove in a make-up non-league basketball game Monday.

The Leopards led 17-15 at the half. But the Panthers went on a 11-2 run in the third quarter to take control of the game.

Imbler coach Barry Bowers said the Panthers missed many scoring opportunities in the first half but shot the ball better in the second half.

Both teams combined for nine points in the first quarter.

Cove coach Candy McGilvray said Keri Reynolds did a good job rebounding and so did Ashley Holland coming off the bench.

Cove's Kara Mann cut the Panther lead to 35-29 late in the fourth quarter. The Panthers answered with a 8-2 run to close out the game.

Penny Cline led Imbler with 12 points followed by Mandy Griffin and Kayla Ritter with 11 apiece.

Bowers said Cline and Griffin played good games and stepped up their leadership.

Imbler's Hannah Hall had 10 rebounds and Ritter 12.

Cove's Christina McGilvray scored 12 points.

Imbler (4-3) will play in the Heppner Tournament Saturday. Cove (1-5) returns to action on the road against Adrian Jan. 3 for its Old Oregon League season-opener.

Imbler boys push record to 7-0

IMBLER — The Imbler boys jumped out to a huge first-half lead and held off a second-half charge by Cove in a make-up non-league basketball game Monday.

The Panthers improved to 7-0 after their 56-46 victory.

A downside to the win was Imbler's John McKinnis falling hard on his wrist in the fourth quarter. He was taken to the hospital for X-rays. McKinnis had 15 points.

The Leopards outscored the Panthers 30-22 in the second half but were unable to take the lead.

"We made a big run in the fourth," Cove coach Todd Gorham said.

He said the Leopards' man-to-man defense caused turnovers in the final four minutes.

The Leopards missed two free throws with two minutes left that would have cut the lead to six.

Imbler's Tanner McIntosh had 17 points.

Cove's Tom Van Nice scored 16 for the Leopards, while Devan Frank chipped in 14.

Imbler travels to the Heppner Tournament Saturday.

Cove (3-3) returns to action Jan. 3 on the road against Adrian in its Old Oregon League season opener.

"I think it (the preseason) went really well," Gorham said. The Leopards' losses were to Imbler and Lapwai, Idaho.

"I feel we're on the right track," he said.
