PENDLETON — The Enterprise girls basketball team just couldn’t get shots to drop in Pendleton.

A day after shooting 17 percent in a loss to Western Mennonite, the Outlaws hit just 22.2 percent (12-54) in a 50-34 loss to Pilot Rock Friday that eliminated EHS from the 2A state tournament.


“Not the same energy,” Enterprise head coach Mike Crawford said.

“Not the same. We were trying to summon it, trying to get after it. But the truth is, if you’re confident with the ball — and (Pilot Rock) was, they took care of the ball and put us in a spot. We just ran out of gas.”

The Outlaws looked fresh early on after a late night Thursday, taking a 4-0 lead in the first quarter.

The Rockets tied the game up at 7-all and ended up leading 13-9 after the first quarter.

Pilot Rock started the second quarter on a 7-0 run to go up 20-9 before Enterprise put together a 12-5 run to close the quarter and trail 25-21 at halftime.

The Rockets stretched the lead back to 11 in the third quarter before the Outlaws charged back again to cut it to three points (35-32) after three quarters.

But Enterprise was never able to catch up all the way and the Rockets closed it out.

“I thought the difference was, I don’t know, maybe the later game (Thursday) made it a little different. They just kept putting the pressure on, kept the lead and we couldn’t ever get it back to even,” Crawford said.

“We would make a run to get close, and then we’d spot them some points.”

Hayley Riggs led EHS with nine points and four rebounds, while Marta Stangel, who earned second-team all-tournament honors, finished with seven points and six rebounds.

Amy Edison and Elsa Steen both chipped in six points.

Madison Dave was Pilot Rock’s high scorer with 15 points while grabbing 12 rebounds.

Caitlin Zyph had 12 points and six boards while connecting on four of six 3-pointers.

The loss ends the careers of Stangel, Steen, Kylie Willis and Myranda McFetridge.

“It was a really good year,” Crawford said.

“I was disappointed how everything finished. Some years the breaks are there, some years the breaks aren’t. And this year, we didn’t get very many breaks down the stretch.”
