UNION The momentum is shifting Unions way the past two weeks.

The Bobcat girls basketball team won its third straight Wapiti League contest and vaulted into a third-place tie with Pine-Eagle after beating Joseph 61-34 here Friday.

We passed the ball well and were doing a better job recognizing when to get the ball to the open person, Union coach Wayne Herron said.

Union (5-8 overall, 3-2 league) took a slim 10-8 lead after the first quarter before outscoring Joseph 23-7 in the second quarter.

Joseph didnt play poorly, we just shot the ball pretty well tonight, Herron said.

Union, which shot 44 percent from the field, was led by Kallin Princes 18 points and seven rebounds. Jana Brotherton added 14 points and five steals. Sara Bomberger had five rebounds, three steals and two blocks, and Lena Weitlauf scored eight points, had five assists and four steals. Stephanie Upshaw had eight assists.

Anna Yost led Joseph (2-9, 0-4) with 10 points.

Union travels to Halfway to play Pine-Eagle today, while Joseph is at Imbler.

WALLOWA STUMBLES

WALLOWA A good first half turned ugly in the second half Friday for Wallowa.

The hosting Cougars shot 50 percent in the first half and trailed by only three, but a slow second half led to a 46-34 Wapiti League loss to Pine-Eagle.

In the third quarter, we shot 1-for-12 from the field and got so far behind we couldnt recover, Wallowa coach Greg Oveson said. If we shoot 50 percent on free throws and 50 percent on our layins, we would have beat them easy. We rushed quite a few shots.

Pine-Eagle outscored Wallowa 9-2 during the pivotal third quarter.

Amanda Wilson had nine points to lead Wallowa (7-7, 2-3). Holli Barton added seven points.

Wallowa is at Enterprise today.

IMBLER EDGES ELGIN

ELGIN A late comeback by Elgin was not enough to knock off Imbler.

Imbler downed Elgin, 44-39 in Wapiti League play Friday.

Elgin (5-7, 1-4) began a comeback in the fourth quarter behind Leanne Fosters eight points.

The game was scrappy as usual, we just executed our game plan better, Imbler coach Dale Wagner said.

Elgin coach Randy McKone said the Huskies just wanted to play a good defensive game and work on execution. However, the team had a bad second quarter, scoring only six points.

Emily Correll scored 14 points to pace Imbler (12-3, 5-0). Meaghan Campbell added 10.
