The Sentinel, Goldendale, WA December 18, 2008 Page 7 ANDREW CHRISTIANSEN Reporter The Lady Timberwolves were as cold as the gym in the early going against Royal, last week. The Knights rolled to a 5-1 lead behind the shooting of Dani Callahan, who was good on a 24 foot shot and put up another long-range bomb a few minutes later. About half-way through the opening quarter, Goldendale began to heat up and slowly gained control. Ashley Barrett operated in the key with impunity and the Timberwolf press creat- ed turnovers. Barrett put the Wolves up for good at 13-12 Andrew Christiansen LETHAL IN THE PAINT: Ashley Barrett scores against Royal. The Timberwolf sophomore is averaging nine points per game. in the second quarter, and Callahan quit shooting. As the half wound down, it looked like the Knights might not hit another basket, as they were stuck on 12 points since late in the first quarter. Sydney Bloom gob- bled up defensive rebounds and had a steal to frustrate the Knights. With 1:48 left in the half, Royal finally got on the board. Goldendale did pay a price for their aggressive defense putting Royal on the line for one-and-one opportunities, but the Knights weren't able to capitalize, missing the front end on each trip to the line. Barrett had a buzzer- beater at the end of the half to make the score 23-14, Goldendale. Royal generated opportu- nities with their press in the third quarter and narrowed the gap to 37-31 at the end of three. But Goldendale still had fewer turnovers in the quarter and kept their lead by having twice the scoring opportunities of Royal. Goldendale regrouped in the final quarter, out- rebounding the Knights 13-8 and out-shooting them to the end. Kylee Bellamy and Lexi Cameron scored off offensive rebounds, and Traci Bailey shot 50 percent from the floor in the second half to seal the win. Friday night's game against Wahluke had a simi- lar score, but the outcome was never in doubt as the Wolves led by 15 points at the half. The Timberwolves were able to get lO players on the scoreboard and valuable experience for reserves. Sadie Shattuck was domi- nant inside with 15 points and seven rebounds. Traeie Bailey led all scorers with 16 points. Royal 12 2 17 5 36 Goldendale 8 15 14 16 53 Royal - Leslie Brown 10, Tawnee Gonzales 9, Janae Anderson 8, Dani Callahan 6, Maggie Leal 3.

Adam Snyder poured in 16 with an inside-outside game to set up a Klickitat County final, in a town located southeast of Bend. The same three players led the Cougars against the Vandals, who Coach Joe Bales described as lacking energy from the previous night's tough game. The half-time rest allowed Klickitat to outscore Lyle-Wishram, 16- 8 for a tie at the end of three quarters. Mason led Kliekitat's offense, dishing out eight assists and pulling down seven rebounds.

The championship game was played against North Lake, who knocked off Klickitat in the opening round, 62-41. The Cougars were intent on working their defense to shut down North Lake's big gun, Coleen Hunt, who was score- less in the first quarter. Trailing by 12 at the end of three quarters, the Cougars ran out of gas and the Cowboys forced them into a gambling, man defense. Andrew Christiansen STEP AROUND: Austin Ross drives the baseline against Royal's Marc Albertson for a two-point lay in. Timberwolf boys Goldendale's boys had to settle for a split last week, defeating Royal 40-22 and losing a close game to Wahluke, 54-48.

The Pirate boys had to come from behind against Liberty Christian, trailing 33- 24 at the end of three quar- ters. "Junior (Hernandez) clamped down on their point guard, and that's what really got us going," said Coach John densen. The brother team of Nie and Andrew Venema came through at the end with Nic tieing the game and Andrew knocking down the game win- ner, 43-41.

The game was tight in the early going, but the Pirates outseored Kahlotus 12-1 over the final minutes of the sec- ond quarter.
