Tigers fall in season opener

Avery Albrecht got the La Grande girls basketball team off to a quick start, but Pendleton ended up making the needed adjustments in the season opener Wednesday.

Albrecht scored eight for her team-high 20 points in the opening six minutes of the game, fueling a 10-3 run in the first quarter. But, the Buckaroos switched to a zone to pick up a 59-50 win.

“Avery was doing a great job slashing into the lane,” Tigers head coach Doug Girdner said. “After Pendleton switched to the zone, our guards panicked. We had trouble finding the passing lanes.”

Pendleton closed out the first quarter with a 10-2 run, taking a 13-12 lead. 

Haley White picked up her third foul of the game in the opening minutes of the second quarter, and that opened the door for the Buckaroos from the outside. Pendleton connected on three 3-pointers before halftime.

“That second quarter was the one that really got us,” Girdner said. “People don’t realize how much pressure Haley can create on defense. 

“We saw some good things during the game. But, defensively, we were a step slow tonight. That just comes down to more practices and getting into basketball shape.”

Kylin Collman came off the bench to score 13 points for the Tigers, connecting on four 3-point attempts.

La Grande (0-1) will travel back to Pendleton tomorrow for the start of the Red Lion tournament. The Tigers will play Pasco, Wash., at 11:15 a.m.

“We’ll see what we’re made off,” Girdner said. “Pasco is a school of 1,200 students. It’s going to be tough.”

Game notes

La Grande opened the season against Pendleton for the seventh straight season, with a 2-5 record in those games. Lexus Miller-Moylan sat out due to lack of practices. Lacey Miles was cleared by doctors to resume athletic activities after suffering

a foot injury during the soccer season.
