Imbler boys, girls notch wins

Panther rein in Mustangs

IMBLER — Trace Vancleave had a huge night for the Imbler boys basketball team, which is still trying to get used to playing with a full team.

The sophomore poured in 20 points against Heppner during a 55-49 non-league win Tuesday, with Imbler outscoring the visiting Mustangs 16-9 in the final quarter.

“It was a back- and-forth game,” Panthers head coach Mike Mills said. “Heppner is a good, aggressive team. They have some good athletes. If we played this team five times, I think one team would win three times.”

Rustin McDonald chipped in nine, and Kyle Johnson added eight for Imbler.

Patrick Collins finished with a team-high 17 points for Heppner, while Brian Rill added 12 points. 

Imbler improves to 2-1 this season, and got junior guard Joe Griffin back. Griffin missed the opening weekend while recovering from having his wisdom teeth removed.

The Panthers will travel to Cove for a 7:30 p.m. game Friday.

Barry nails down win

There’s nothing more pressure packed than standing at the free-throw line with the game in the balance. Katie Barry hit two free throws in that situation to give the Imbler girls basketball team a 36-34 win against Heppner Tuesday.

Emma Bowers led the way for the Panthers with 15 points, who were coming off two straight overtime wins to open the season.

“Our legs were gone,” Imbler head coach Barry Bowers said. “Three games in four days is tough to open the season with. But, the girls fought through it.”

The Panthers led by seven to 10 points through the first three quarters. But, Heppner mounted a late rally, forcing Barry into the game-winning situation. Barry’s three points all came from the charity stripe.
