COVE — A quick start by the Cove Leopards translated into a 57-39 non-league basketball win over the Union girls Saturday.

After a 2-2 tie early in the first quarter, the Leopards took a 4-2 lead off Kelcie Robinson's bucket and never looked back. The Leopards went on a 12-4 run to close out the quarter.

Eight seconds into the second quarter, the Leopards' Kathy Mann stole the ball and raced the other way for a lay-up and was fouled. She converted the three-point play.

Mann said the Leopards were hitting on all cylinders for the first time, and it was nice to have a game like this.

"We were really hitting our shots, which was good," she said. "Our defense stepped up."

Back-to-back buckets by Amy Puckett extended the Leopards' lead to 23-6 with 5:53 in the first half.

Cove coach Dick Royes said the Leopards wanted to establish something quickly and their defensive pressure gave them a an early lead.

Robinson had five blocks, and the Leopards committed just three turnovers in the first half.

The Bobcats' Kallin Prince was held to 11 points, nine below her average. She had seven points in the first half.

Jana Brotherton led the Bobcats with 12.

Lisa Scheele led the Leopards with 23 points. Robinson had 16 followed by Mann with seven.

The Leopards (4-3) open up Old Oregon League play Friday at home against Adrian.

The Bobcats (2-4) host Riverside today.

ELGIN GIRLS CLAMP DOWN ON DEFENSE

ECHO — The Elgin basketball girls were again a terror on defense in winning the Echo Tournament Saturday by beating Echo 45-26.

The girls are 7-1 on the season, and are giving up an amazing 27.4 points a game. The Huskies gave up just seven points in the entire second half against Echo. They also held Echo's leading scorer Jane Zita, to two points in the second half. Zita had 18 in the first half.

Coach Randy McKone said, "this is the youngest group of kids I've ever had. (But) they just play great as a team."

McKone said the team does struggle on offense, but that the girls' effort on defense has so far more than made up for the lack of scoring. "We played a very, very good game defensively (against Echo). They do play good defense," McKone said.

Amber Looslie had her best game of the year with an impressive double-double, scoring 19 points and gobbling up 17 rebounds. Looslie had a good tournament overall, averaging 16.5 points a game over the weekend.

Josie Cross also had 10 points and eight rebounds.

Elgin gets two weeks off and next plays Jan. 10 in a home game against Enterprise.

RASMUSSEN'S 24 LEADS TO IMBLER WIN

WALLOWA — Imbler's Tiffany Rasmussen was on fire against the Wallowa Cougars in the Lions Tournament championship Saturday.

Rasmussen shot 62 percent (13-for-21) from the field for 24 points. She also pulled down nine boards.

"She's got a real good game," Imbler coach Dale Wagner said.

Imbler won 54-36.

The Panthers were "stumbling" in the first quarter, he said. "We finally got straightened around. We played right."

The Cougars hurried their shots, assistant coach Warren Wilson said.

"We got shots," he said. "We just didn't convert."

Lynique Oveson had four assists for the Cougars.

"She dished well," Wilson said. "We didn't convert on shots five feet in."

Amanda Wilson had a game-high 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Cougars.

Emily Correll had 13 rebounds for the Panthers. Liz Woody and Hannah Hall had three assists apiece.

The Cougars (4-3) travel to take on the Baker JV team today. The Panthers (7-1) host Pilot Rock Friday.

HUNTINGTON — The Powder Valley girls rolled to a 57-26 win over Harper at the Huntington Tournament Saturday.

The Badgers (7-2), winners of six straight, outscored Harper 21-10 in the first quarter.

"We had a good first quarter," Powder Valley coach Allen Bingham said. "Everybody was active and playing well."

The Badgers benefitted at the free-throw line, too. Harper had just three attempts compared to the Badgers' 25.

"I think we were the aggressive team," he said. "It did show up at the free-throw line. That was quite a difference."

Joelle Bain led the Badgers with 18 points followed by Shauna Nelson with 11.

The Badgers open Old Oregon League play Friday against Prairie City at home.

LA GRANDE GIRLS FALL TO REDMOND 77-62

REDMOND — The La Grande girls basketball team got blitzed early by a good 4A Redmond team and wasn't able to overcome a big first-quarter deficit in a 77-62 loss Saturday in the championship game of the Redmond Invitational Tourna-ment.

The girls were outscored 21-11 in the first quarter and were down 42-27 by the half.

The Tigers did win two out of their three games at the Redmond tournament.

"I think it was good for us to get in the championship game," said Tigers coach Isaac Williams. "Everyone we played was a 4A school."

The Tigers got 24 points from Christie Weaver and 11 from Amanda Schuft.

The Tiger girls, ranked for much of the season as the No. 1 3A girls' team in the state, are 5-5 in preseason, but nearly all of their games have been against 4A schools. Williams said playing a tough schedule against bigger schools "has been a great experience for us.

"No one at 3A is as good as Redmond or Hermiston (another 4A school that beat La Grande)," Williams said.

The girls play Saturday on the road against Nampa Christian.

WESTON-MCEWEN BEATS JOSEPH GIRLS

WALLOWA — The Joseph Eagles fell to Weston-McEwen girls 77-43 in the Wallowa Lions Basketball Tournament Saturday.

"We had a flat first quarter," Joseph coach Wendy McDaniel said. "We came out strong in the second."

Joseph trailed by 15 points at halftime.

McDaniel said the Eagles did not penetrate because they were too worried about turnovers.

The team needs to shoot the ball more, she said.

The Eagles (0-5) were led by Anna Yost with 15 points.

The Eagles host Umatilla Thursday.
