La Grande girls lose close one in OT to ranked opponent

PENDLETON — The La Grande girls played an elite Washington team tough Thursday, but ended losing a close one in overtime 57-54.

The girls were beaten by West Valley (outside of Yakima) at the opening game of the Pendleton Tournament. West Valley is the No. 6 ranked 3A team in Washington.

It was the second-straight close loss by the girls, who were nipped by three points by Pendleton Dec. 14.

"Obviously, they're disappointed," said coach Isaac Williams. "(But) it's better to get these games out of the way now."

The difference in Thursday's game came at the free-throw line. West Valley shot 86 percent from the line and made 10 more free throws than La Grande.

Williams said these close games can get the girls prepared for tough games during conference play, which counts for league standings and playoff position. The girls began the season ranked No. 1, but are off to a 2-3 start, with all those losses coming against either ranked teams or 4A schools.

Christy Weaver led the Tigers with 13 points, while Lindsey Carmichael and Amanda Schuft each scored 12.

The girls play Lewiston, Idaho, today at the second day of the Pendleton Tournament.
