Boys Basketball
Montesano 52, Tenino 37

(Tenino, Wa) The two teams struggled to find their groove in the 1st half with Montesano led by just 2 after 1, 10-8 and then extended that lead to 19-12 at the half holding the Beavers to just 4 points. Tenino did not help themselves going 2-6 from the free throw line.

Tenino would do better in the 3rd scoring 9, more than in either quarter of the 1st half but unfortunately for the Beavers, the Bulldogs doubled their 19 to 38 for a 38-21 lead. Trace Ridgway led the Bulldogs with a total of 19 points and worked mostly from about 15-feet and in although he did hit a 3 ball. 

Ridgway would have to leave game in the 4th quarter when he and Tenino’s Takari Hickle knocked legs and he went down awkwardly and appeared to have injured his knee.  Two other starters for Montesano also were out Colby Adams and Caydon Lovell both fouled out fairly early in the 4th. Christian Tyler, yet a 4th starter also was out most of the 2nd half with an injury as well but the reserves came in and played well.

Trent Adams would finish with 7 and handled the ball, played solid defense and knocked down 7 points off the bench. Center Mason Dinnen hit for 8 and the Bulldogs had built a large enough lead to keep the Beavers at arm’s length. Carter Lutz, Aydan Darst and Tyce Peterson all played critical roles in securing Monte’s 5th win of the season.

The Beavers had 3 hit for 9 points including Hickle. Noah Schow and Austin Gonia also scored 9 and both just 8th graders. Will Feltus, another 8th grader played well at the point. Max Craig and Conleth Jackson both added 4 points but the Beavers simply did not shoot well. They ended up 4-13 from the line and after a n error by Montesano with putting in the wrong number for a player who came into the game they got a technical to start the 3rd quarter. Tenino got 2 free throws and then possession and out of a possible 5 point possession they ended up with 0.

The young Beavs kept playing hard but the Bulldogs big 3rd quarter was too big a hole to dig out of. Montesano is now 5-1 while Tenino drops to 1-3. Our Pacific Sports Spa visiting player of the game went to Trace Ridgway and our Thorbeckes home team player of the game went to Noah Schow.
