UNION — Union ambushed the top team in the Blue Mountain Conference Saturday. 

Enterprise came in with a 12-1 conference record. 

But the Lady Cats sent them home with their second league loss, 50-41. 

After holding a tenuous 25-24 lead at halftime, the visiting Lady Outlaws watched Union take control in the second half.

Amber Fiorito started the surge and gave Union the lead, 26-25.

Enterprise’s Marta Stangel worked to keep the score tight with a pair of baskets and a free throw, but she was forced to the bench when she picked up her fifth foul with 2:38 left in the third quarter.

Union went on a 10-0 run to build a 37-29 lead before Myranda McFetridge hit a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Amy Edison’s shot early in the fourth quarter cut the lead to three points, and later a 3-pointer by Hailey Riggs with 6:08 left did it again, 40-37. With an interception and basket with 4:56 left, Edison cut Union’s lead to three again, 42-39.

But in the final minutes, it was Union that pulled away for the win, led by Fiorito, Dani Sturm and Keesha Sarman. The Lady Cats allowed two points in the final four minutes.

Sarman finished game with 15 points to lead the Lady Cats, while Fiorito added 13. Sturm put in nine points, and Kaci Langford scored six. Carsyn Roberts hit Union’s only 3-pointer on her way to five points. Sarah Good added two.

Riggs led the Outlaws with 12 points, while McFetridge put in eight and Elsa Steen had seven before she fouled out late in the game. Stangel finished the game with six. Edison scored four, while both Kylie Willis and Sajonia added two points.

According to coach Mike Crawford, the Outlaws let the game slip away in the fourth quarter when they didn’t cut a Union run short. “They (Union) made plenty of mistakes. We had opportunities. We just didn’t take very good shots.

“Earlier in the (fourth) quarter we needed to be more patient and get some baskets in close. We just couldn’t put it together enough to close the gap,” Crawford said.

The loss of Stangel in the third quarter hurt the Outlaws, the coach added. “Personally, up until this game, I thought she’s been the player of the year in this conference. She has been dominating games.”

The Outlaws are still in a good position as the district tournament approaches, according to Crawford. “We are still in first place. “

Enterprise hosts Heppner Friday, then Grant Union Saturday. 

 

Union 53, Elgin 32

ELGIN — The Lady Cats continued to chase the top teams in the Blue Mountain Conference by keeping Elgin winless Friday.

The Lady Cats won a 53-32 decision on the road that kept the team in fourth place in the BMC behind Enterprise, Heppner and Pilot Rock.

 

Pilot Rock 51, Elgin 34

PILOT ROCK — The Lady Huskies dropped their 14th straight league game Saturday to the 10th-ranked Rockets on the road, 51-34.

Pilot Rock improved to 11-4 and stayed one-half game in front of the Union Lady Cats in the race for third place in the conference.
