Prairie City girls
fall to Adrian
in OT
The Prairie City Panther
girls basketball team started
last week’s competition off
with a 44-16 win over Burnt
River on Tuesday, but the
Antelopes’ full-court pres-
sure in Adrian on Saturday
proved too much.
“We played as good as
we’ve played all year,”
said Panther head coach Bo
The Lady Panthers had
a 16-point lead in the mid-
dle of the third quarter, but
then the Antelopes applied
strong defensive pressure in
the fourth.
The teams were tied 42-
42 going into overtime, and
Adrian outscored Prairie
City 8-4.
“Adrian is tough no mat-
ter what,” Workman said.
“They played full-court
pressure, and we handled
it well. Adrian just doesn’t
give up.”
Workman said the key
quality for his players, mov-
ing forward, will be mental
“We’re playing close
games with these better
teams, and we’re staying in
the game. We just need to
learn how to win the close
ones,” he said.
He added they’re close to
the other top five teams in
the league.
“It’s how it is every year
— it’s anybody’s game,” he
said. “For my kids, espe-
cially, being mentally pre-
pared for every game and

in on a jump ball and a cou-

scored 7 for the nail-biter
Ukiah/Long Creek coach
TC Conner said his team
started slow but picked it
up and played some good
defense. At the end, he said,
there was some “anxious

at the scoreboard — then
you start getting anxious,”
he said. “They fought to the

tired, but they all wanted to
get back in.”
Ukiah/Long Creek ju-
nior Gladys Johnson said it
was a great game.
“We played our best and
worked with each other,”
she said.
Schmadeka said he was
happy with how his team
“I’m proud of the girls
for fighting for all the loose
balls at the end of the game,
bouncing back and coming
out with the 1-point win,”
he said.
Tiger Miranda Cook
said the competition Uki-
ah/Long Creek gave them
made it a fun game.
“They were better than I
thought they were going to
be,” she said.
Tiger Aubrey Werner
added she was pleased with
her team’s passing and re-
Her teammate Sam Ad-
ams said the game would be
memorable mainly because
she caught the flu, but add-

the scoreboard so tight, but
I’m happy that we pulled it

aged to become one.”

“In the fourth, we played
better defense, but it was
hard to bounce back af-
ter the third quarter,” said
Tiger head coach Taylor
Schmadeka. “We had some
costly mistakes, but we nev-
er stopped playing hard.”
Danielle Rhoda led the
Tigers with 9 points, fol-
lowed by Aubrey Bowlus
with 6. Faythe Schafer had
5 steals.
Schmadeka said, al-
though his team played
hard, they ran out of steam
against Jordan Valley.
“I knew it was going
to be a hard battle at their
place,” he said. “We stuck
with them for most of the
The Tigers were down
10-9 in the first and 25-16
at the half.
“We came out in the sec-

so did they,” the coach said.
“I’m very proud of how they
played and attitudes both
nights in two tough games.”
Rhoda led the Tigers
with 16 points, and Schafer
had 11.
“Aubrey Bowlus and De-
nali Twehues played good
defense both nights and got
lots of rebounds for us,”
Schmadeka said. “Courtney
Nichols did a good job fill-
ing the spot of one of our
hurt starters.”
