Celtics slay No. 2 Tualatin
By DEREK WILEY
Of the Keizertimes
McNary head coach Ryan Kirch has challenged his team’s
competitiveness and toughness since the Celtics opened the sea-
son in late November.
“I thought last week (Dec. 15-22) we got there,” Kirch said.
“We played fi ve games in seven days against fi ve really good op-
ponents. Going 2-3 is one thing but I thought we got tougher.
One thing we realized is we just have to execute better.”
Down fi ve points at halftime, that competitiveness, toughness
and execution all came together as McNary topped previously
unbeaten Tualatin 72-58 on Wednesday, Dec. 27.
“The toughness and competitiveness has now become our
fall back and our habit,” Kirch said. “I’m real proud, to be able
to get the lead and extend the lead and win going away. We’ve
came a long ways in six and half weeks.”
The Celtics jumped out to an 18-11 lead against Tualatin,
who entered the game 8-0 and No. 2 in the 6A OSAA Power
Rankings. But the Timberwolves made three 3-pointers in the
second quarter to take a 34-29 lead into halftime.
Running Tualatin off the 3-point arc was something McNary
had talked about before the game.
“We had a little lapse in the second quarter,” Kirch said.
“We challenged them and got after them at halftime. We didn’t
change our game plan. Everything was what we thought they
were going to do and how we wanted to guard it. We thought a
lot of their shooters couldn’t really drive with the exception of
the point guard. Guys just buckled down when they were tired
and competed and were both physically and mentally tough to-
night and that was the difference.”
The Timberwolves made just one 3-pointer in the second
“I think we just defended really well,” McNary senior An-
drew Jones said. “I think we all just communicated well and
forced them to take tough shots. They had been a really good
outside shooting team for the most part so we tried to force
them to go inside more and I think we did a pretty good job
of that in the second half. They weren’t able to get easy looks.”

the Nike Shootout.
On Friday, Dec. 29, Kailey

McNary led just 27-26 at
halftime before going on an
18-0 run in the third quarter.
Doutt had 15 points, crushing
the Bulldogs in the paint.
“I was trying to run hard to
the block and beat them there
because I think they were
tired,” said Doutt, who also
had 15 rebounds in the win.
“We worked the ball around a
lot better and the guards were
penetrating, which opened
up other things and we were
pushing the fl oor. That’s what
got us a lot of our points.”
West Albany scored its fi rst
basket of the third quarter on
a free throw with 36 seconds
remaining and its only fi eld
goal with 24 seconds to go.
But by that point the Lady
Celts had a commanding 45-

“We kind of put that in on

Elizabeth Doran said. “It was
good for us to practice that
and they actually did a pretty
good job in it.”
West Albany mounted a
comeback in the fourth and
got within 48-45 with 3:14
remaining. However, McNary
closed the game on an 11-0
“You can’t let that go for
that long,” Doran said. “We
need to learn to snap out of it
a little quicker and push back
sooner. They’re (West Albany)
a tough team for us to play
because they play aggressively
and they’re pretty much all

After falling to Clacka-

higher percentage shots and

McNary went 19-for-27

“We were focusing on
getting to the basket more,”
Doran said. “We shot like four
free throws yesterday and not
a lot the day before. We were
trying to get more high per-
centage shots at the basket.
“You’re not going to shoot
well everyday. If you’re not
making outside shots, let’s get
inside and get some higher
percentage shots. Kailey is a
good player inside. The other
teams we’ve faced had big kids
inside so it was hard for us to

years of service to their coun-
try, 18 deployments into the

ghanistan, countless weeks and
months in hospitals, surgeries
and rehabilitation facilities.

You can take it to the bank.
These guys are “locked and
loaded,“ ready to have a fun
day on the water.
As part of the Wounded
Warrior Project and The Fallen
Outdoors, guides like Donald
Koskela, of Pastime Fishing
Adventures, of Silverton, vol-
unteer their boats and services
for the day.
Koskela has years of experi-
ence fi shing for sturgeon. He
has clients from as far away as
Germany, (even Texas) to catch
and release sturgeon.
Our fi ve wounded warriors
have joined Koskela for the day
in his 28-foot Alumnaweld.
Fishing for sturgeon is a
rather laid back fi shing, that is,
until you hook one. There is
good reason why some fondly
call them “fresh water marlin.”
Koskela drops anchor in
one of his marked “hot spots,”
the popular Toyota Hole.
A large infl ated ball is at-
tached to the anchor line.
When a big fi sh is hooked, the
boat is released from the an-
chor, and the ball remains with
the anchor as the boat fl oats
downriver fi ghting fi sh.
Koskela baits all fi ve hooks,
casts them out, and gives a brief
lesson on what the bite looks
like, and what should be done.
Anglers will take turns
fi ghting fi sh. Koskela will
coach each angler on; when to
take the rod out of the holder
and when to set the hook.
Next bite, next angler.

He lands the fi rst sturgeon.
He had never caught a fi sh

one of the smallest of the day.”
