Brooklynn Hankwitz rebounds for
Astoria during the Clatsop Clash.
It was a night of jump balls, fouls, free throws
and turnovers. But with their 41-30 win over Sea-
side, the Astoria girls basketball team still accom-
plished two important goals Friday night.
The Lady Fishermen avoided an 0-2 start in
league play, and their victory at the Brick House
was the first over the Gulls in almost six years.
Astoria ended one of the longest Clatsop Clash
droughts, scoring their first win over Seaside since
Feb. 10, 2012 to break an 11-game losing streak to
the Gulls.
Astoria coach Mike Jacobson was Seaside’s
coach that night.
“I remember it,” he said, of Astoria’s 37-18 win
over his Gulls. “I think it was (Kaitlin) Lewis’s
sophomore year. We came in here and couldn’t hit a
basket. I knew it had been a while.”
In Friday’s game, Astoria was just 6-of-30 from
the field in the first half, yet they were still tied with
the Gulls at halftime, 14-14 — due in large part to
Seaside’s 15 turnovers in the first half.
Seaside held a 13-5 lead midway through the
second quarter, behind two 3-pointers from Annaka
Garhofer. But Astoria finished the first half with a
9-1 run, capped by Sam Hemsley’s bank shot in the
closing seconds.
Astoria’s first half shots “were all good shots,
they just weren’t going in,” Jacobson said. “We
told them, ‘keep shooting. They’ll go in.’ Brook-
lynn (Hankwitz) played a good game, and so did
Haley O’Brien and Kelsey Fausett.”
Still, “It was pretty ugly,” he said, as the game
had a combined 37 fouls, 45 free throws and 57
turnovers. “You know how it is with rivalry games.
We fought through it, got it tied at halftime, then
we started hitting some shots and getting to the free
throw line, and made our free throws (14-for-25).”
The Gulls gave up the ball 21 more times in the
second half for 36 turnovers, while Astoria made
the necessary halftime adjustments to pull away in
the second half.
“We weren’t running the offense the way we
needed to, and we made a couple adjustments,”
Jacobson said. “And this is the first time all year
that they actually made the adjustments. We’re
young and learning. But they made the adjustments
and went out there and did what we needed to do. It
was a good win. The girls are happy.”

a 56-42 win.

outlast Warrenton
kanie Tigers only had four play-
ers in the scoring column Friday
night, but those four were enough

53-40, in a key Lewis & Clark
League girls basketball game.
Clatskanie freshman Shelby
Blodgett scored 31 points. Fresh-
man Olivia Sprague added 18.
Macy Simmons and freshman

double figures for the No. 1-ranked
— The Daily Astorian
he forecast called for rain Friday night
in Astoria. Actual rain outside, and Sea-
side 3-pointers inside, raining down on
the Fishermen.
When the game was over, the Gulls were
12-for-21 from the 3-point line, to highlight
a 71-42 win over the Fishermen in a Clat-
sop Clash boys basketball game at the Brick
Seaside’s Beau Johnson scored the first
points of the game on a 3-pointer, and the
show was on. Johnson drained two more treys
in the first quarter. Chase Januik, Rafi Sibony
and Payton Westerholm made three straight to
open the second period, and the Gulls finished
the first half 6-of-12 from the arc.
In the meantime, Astoria’s Karsten John-
son hit two 3-pointers and Ian Hunt added a
third to keep the Fishermen within striking
distance (32-21) at halftime.
But — as they do against most teams —
the Gulls shifted into high gear in the second
Januik opened the third quarter with a
3-pointer, which sparked a 9-0 run.
Beau Johnson hit his fourth trey of the
night, Astor Landwehr hit a triple off the
bench, and Westerholm closed the third period
with a long 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Seaside does not keep 3-point shooting
records, but the Gulls likely came close to or
set a school record with 12, as Ryan Hague
and Januik both hit 3-pointers in the fourth
“We shot pretty well from outside the
line,” said Seaside coach Bill Westerholm.
“When we trust each other we can be pretty
good on offense.”
Januik led all scorers with 15 points,
while Hague and Westerholm added
14 apiece. Astoria’s Isaac Brockman scored
12 of his team-high 14 points in the second
