BAKER CITY — The Wallowa basketball girls rode a huge second half to beat Crane at the District 4-1A Tournament Friday night.

By beating the Mustangs 52-37, Wallowa qualifies for the state tournament, which will begin in Baker City March 5. The Cougars play Cove today for the district championship.

This game is strictly for bragging rights and seeding. Both Cove and Wallowa are moving on to the state tournament.

Coach Greg Oveson said he was nervous heading into the Crane game, because the Mustangs are a good team, and he wasn't happy with how his team played the day before in a win against Harper.

Wallowa didn't get off to a strong start against Crane, and was up just 23-22 at the half.

Oveson said, "the girls were pretty mad at halftime." They took out their anger on the Mustangs, outscoring Crane 29-15 in the second half. The Cougars shot 12-23 from the floor in the second half.

Wallowa was led by Sarah Bomberger, who scored 19 points, mostly inside, and by Amanda Wilson, who scored 18.

"I was pretty pleased with how they played in the second half," said Oveson. "We were patient and took advantage of mismatches."

Oveson said Amanda Anderson, one of the leaders for the Mustangs, went out of the game in the first half with a broken collarbone.
