OLD OREGON LEAGUE ROUNDUP

The Old Oregon League finished regular season play Saturday and will begin district play Wednesday at Baker City High School.

The District IV tournament features the top four teams from both the OOL and the Tri-Co League split into two four-team brackets.

On the boys side, undefeated and top-ranked Imbler is the top seed from the OOL and opens play Wednesday against either Harper or Monument-Dayville.

Harper and Monument Dayville will meet in a play-in game Monday for the right to play the Panthers.

Mitchell is the top seed on the other side of the boys bracket after finishing first in the Tri-Co League and opens up against Jordan Valley.

Other Old Oregon boys teams that made the playoffs are Powder Valley, Joseph and Jordan Valley

For girls, undefeated Pine Eagle is the top seed from the OOL and defending state champion Crane is the top seed from the Tri-Co.

Powder Valley, seeded second, opens against Monument-Dayville Thursday.

A Crane win and a win by the Badgers sets up a rematch of last year's state championship game.

Also in the tournament from the Old Oregon League is Cove, the third seed, and Jordan Valley.

Seniors come through for Cove girls

COVE – Playing all seniors in the first quarter may have to be a strategy Cove head coach Candy McGilvray goes back to.

Using five players in their last home game, the Cove girls jumped out to a 21-6 lead against Adrian en route to a 60-33 victory.

"I was really proud of them," McGilvray said. "They came out and made some great shots."

Kara Mann and Ashley Holland led Cove in scoring with 12 points each.

Cassie Mills had eight points for Cove to go with six blocked shots and eight rebounds.

Cove (8-6 Old Oregon League, 10-8 overall) opens district play Wednesday against Burnt River. Game time is 2:45 p.m.

Imbler trailed Wallowa (1-13 OOL, 2-19 overall), 26-19 at halftime.

"Once we hit a couple of shots in the second half, our defense picked up and we got some momentum," Bowers said.

Bingham scores 16 in win

JORDAN VALLEY –Powder Valley head coach Allen Bingham knows a win is a win, even if it's not pretty.

"I don't think that we played particularly good basketball," said Bingham after the Badgers 47-37 victory over Jordan Valley. "But Jordan Valley is a hard place to play. Any time I get a win there I'm happy."

Badger boys in a comeback win

JORDAN VALLEY – Forget the fiery halftime speeches.

Blake Jones' Powder Valley boys team just needed to look around its own locker room for motivation Saturday against Jordan Valley.

"It wasn't what any coach said, we just clarified some things," said Jones after the Badgers 48-40 come from behind win. "It was just a team determined to be disciplined and do whatever it takes. The whole group got it done."

Powder Valley trailed 23-14 at halftime after scoring just two points in the second quarter.

After halftime, the Badgers were able to lock down Jordan Valley's top two offensive threats, Paul Elsner and Pat Anderson.

"We really clamped (Elsner) in the second half," Jones said. "He couldn't get it going."

Powder Valley held Jordan Valley to just seven points in the third quarter to take the lead heading into the final period.

Justus Gray led Powder Valley in scoring with 17 points and Bryson Allen added 14.

Young Joseph squad finishes season

HALFWAY – The Joseph girls got an up close look at a great team Saturday in a 71-37 season-ending loss to Pine Eagle, and, possibly, a look into their own future.
