OHS vs. Northport
The OHS lady Tigers played the Northport Mustangs in Odessa on Friday, January 4. The Tigers castigated the Mustangs with a score of 50-46.
This lady had tears in her eyes, as she saw the ladies' score for this game. The season has been a bit of a challenge for the ladies, so I was very happy to see this win.
McKennah Davison was the high scorer for the Tigers with total of 17 points, followed by Brenna Carstensen with 8, Kenadie Elder and Grace Nelson with 6 points each, Caitlyn Schuh and Maddy Wagner with 4, Emily Scrupps with 3 and Kassidy Crossley with 2.
The Tigers had a total of 32 rebounds on the game. There were 9 assists and 21 steals. They fought hard to keep that ball in Tiger hands and it showed.
OHS vs. Inchelium Hornets
On Saturday, January 5, the lady Tigers traveled to Inchelium to play against the Hornets. Unfortunately, the Hornets stung the Tigers, winning by a score of 72-41.
High scorer in the game for the Tigers was Emily Scrupps with a total of 9 points, followed by Maddy Wagner with 8, McKennah Davison with 7, Kenadie Elder with 5, Brenna Carstensen and Caitlyn Schuh with 4, Tori Schlomer and Kassidy Crossley with 2.
The ladies had a total of 31 rebounds on the game. There were 8 assists and 12 steals, but it wasn't quite enough to overcome the 22 turnovers made by the Tigers.
On this coming Friday, January 11, the Tigers head to Cusick and on Saturday, January 12, they play Curlew at home, with the JV contests beginning at 1:30 p.m. and the varsity games at 4:30 and 6 p.m.
