Lady Cougars crush Acorns


Three Lady Cougars scored in double figures in what Coach Joe Bales described as a nice way to start the new year, as Lyle-Wishram rolled over Oakville 53-12.

The Cougars overwhelmed the Acorns with their up-tempo game which allowed them to overcome less than pleasing 22 percent shooting. Lacy Carse scored 18 points, Kiya Childers scored 11 and Maelynn Luke dropped in 10 points for the Cougars. Mandy Solomon was the only Lyle-Wishram player who didn’t score, but she was busy leading the way with 12 rebounds. The team also was solid on defense, shutting out Oakville in the second quarter and putting a damper on the home town festivities with a staggering 44 steals.

The Acorns proved to be a tough nut to crack for the Lyle-Wishram boys who lost 41-36 after falling behind 18-6 in the first quarter. The stats were very similar for the two teams with one notable exception, shot location. Both teams hit 14 shots from the field. All of the Cougars’ baskets were the two-point variety, while Oakville stepped out a bit and hit seven from both sides of the arc. Gabe Montoya scored 13 points and had 11 rebounds for Lyle-Wishram and Cody Carse scored 11 points.

The Cougars were at The Dalles, Wahtonka on Monday and their JV boys take on Glenwood in Glenwood on Thursday. They travel to Sunnyside Christian school on Saturday to take on Soap Lake with a 2 p.m. JV starting time. They will be at Klickitat on Jan. 14 to open league play.
