La Grande beats Nyssa in a non-league matchup

On La Grande’s home court, the Tigers girls basketball team beat the Nyssa Bulldogs (16-4 overall, 4-1 EOL) 53-32 in a non-league game Tuesday. 

The last time the two teams squared off, La Grande lost to Nyssa. This time around, after a rocky start, the Tigers pulled it together and defeated the Bulldogs. 

Tigers’ assistant coach Bob Bedard said it was a good win against a top 3A team. Nyssa’s girls basketball is No. 5 in Class 3A. 

“We played tough and kept good pressure on the perimeter,” Bedard said.

The Tigers efforts did not show results until seven minutes into the first quarter. Up until that moment, they had trailed by as much as five points and passes ended up out of bounds several times. 

With one minute left in the first quarter, Kali Avila hit two free throws, putting them ahead one point, and then Avila sank a 3-pointer at the first quarter buzzer, giving La Grande a 13-9 lead. 

According to Bedard, the first time La Grande played Nyssa, they played a softer defense and focused on plugging the middle. But, Nyssa got through anyway. 

This time, Bedard said that his team did an excellent job keeping Nyssa’s 6-foot post locked down. With the Bulldogs’ good perimeter shooters, they reversed the outcome of the original matchup. 

Kylin Collman finished the game with 14 points. 

Even after losing a little ground, La Grande (12-5 overall, 3-0 GOL) went into the fourth quarter with energy and pushed its lead to 21 points by the end of the game. 

Avery Albrecht scored 12, with eight in the fourth quarter. Auslin McDaniel-Perrin finished with 11 points, while Avila ended the night with 8 points, making 5-of-6 free throws. 

Bedard said the La Grande team still has some work to do, especially when it comes to fouling.

 “We will work on cutting fouls down. We had a lot of girls close to foul trouble,” he said. 

La Grande will host the Baker Bulldogs starting at 6 p.m. Friday.

 for a Greater Oregon League conference game.
