JOSEPH WINS WAPITI OPENER; ENTERPRISE UPSETS UNION BOYS

By The Observer

WALLOWA The Wallowa Cougars only suited up seven players for Fridays Wapiti League opener against the Joseph Eagles, so how did they get a technical foul for having six players on the court?

It was a strange start to the fourth quarter, one Wallowa coach Gerry McLain wishes he could have back. The miscue effectively killed Wallowas rally that ended the third quarter with the Cougars down by 12.

Joseph went on a 13-0 run to start the fourth quarter and won 62-39.

If we could have gotten away with that, we would have made a good run at them, McLain said. That was probably the worst technical I ever got in my life.

McLain took the postgame ribbing in stride, especially considering Joseph just overpowered his undermanned team in both the second and fourth quarters. The taller and bigger Eagles used their size to force Wallowa into poor shots; the Cougars had a single 3-pointer late in the second quarter as Joseph went on a 14-0 run.

Their height and size just intimidated us, because I had guys shooting airballs that never shoot airballs, McLain said.

Weary legs had something to do with that. With only seven players on varsity, McLain makes few substitutions and his players get few breathers.

We started to throw it away in the fourth quarter because we had tired legs and couldnt make it to the pass, he said.

Joseph (10-1 overall, 1-0 league) turned those turnovers into points. Levi Stubblefield had a game-high 17 points and Marcus Wells added 14.

Wallowa (5-5, 0-1) got 13 points from Casey Smergut and 12 more from Randy Spaur.

Joseph has the night off, while Wallowa visits Elgin.
