B10 Sports Blue Mountain Eagle ROUNDUP Continued from Page B2 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 Workman. 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 toughness. “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 The Eagle/Angel Carpenter Ukiah/Long Creek’s Dortha Johnson (44) takes off en route for the basket with Courtney Nichols (11) and Gladys Johnson (42) in the action.

In the final minutes of the fourth, Ukiah/Long Creek was unable to cash in on a jump ball and a cou- ple steals, while the Tigers scored 7 for the nail-biter win. 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 passing.” “You can’t stop and look at the scoreboard — then you start getting anxious,” he said. “They fought to the end.” He added, “They were 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 battled. “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- bounding. Her teammate Sam Ad- ams said the game would be memorable mainly because she caught the flu, but add- ed, “I was panicking with the scoreboard so tight, but I’m happy that we pulled it together as a team and man- aged to become one.” SILVER SPUR CAFE MT.

Adrian outshot Monu- ment/Dayville 13-1 in the third. “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 game.” The Tigers were down 10-9 in the first and 25-16 at the half. “We came out in the sec- ond half shooting good, but 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.” The Monument/Dayville boys, in rebuilding mode this season, had a 63-38 loss to Adrian, followed by a 68- 24 loss to Jordan Valley.
