Basketball roundup: Pirates nab second victory on last-second free throw

LEWISTON — Prairie edged a bigger school’s junior varsity squad on the strength of Shayla VonBargen’s clutch foul shot with six seconds left in a 61-60 melee last Thursday night, Nov. 20.

The Lewiston ‘B’ teamer fouled the Pirates 33 times in the course of trying to defend an early 19-12 lead. Prairie gave little ground as the fouls piled up during the middle frames; the Pirates hung within seven on the scoreboard at halftime, but opened the fourth down by nine, 46-37.

Then VonBargen caught fire, scoring 11 of her 19 points during the fourth. PHS fouled out the opposing high scorer — Cameron Cody — and ran its offense through forwards VonBargen and Kayla Schumacher, who scored 20 points including eight of 10 free throw attempts.

Krystin Uhlenkott scored 15.

Up next, Prairie (2-0) will open league play with a visit Potlatch at 5 p.m. Dec. 2. PHS will host Genesee at 6 p.m. Dec. 4, visit Troy at 1 p.m. Dec. 6, and host Clearwater Valley at 6 p.m. Dec. 8.

CV 55, Timberline 32

WEIPPE — The Rams built a 36-16 halftime lead behind Savannah McHone, who totaled a game-high 18 points against a team missing three starters. Every Ram played. Emily Harding (9 points), Taylor Pfefferkorn (6), Shalynn Gutzman (6), Raelynn Schlieper (5), Mika Charley (4) and Morgan Loughran (2) all scored.

Up next, Clearwater Valley (2-0) opens Whitepine League play at 6 p.m. Dec. 2 at home against Lapwai. The Rams’ homestand continues with non-league Orofino Dec. 4 and WPL powerhouse Genesee Dec. 6 both coming to Kooskia after Thanksgiving.

Kubs slip to 0-4

NEZPERCE — Kamiah got two field goals apiece from Desirae Nasura and Ashley Flerchinger, but the host Indians controlled the run of play and won 32-13 last Thursday, Nov. 20.

Nezperce’s Sydney Kuther booked a double-double.

Earlier in the week, Timberline used a 14-point fourth quarter to edge Kamiah 35-27 on Nov. 18.

Kamiah was paced in scoring by Chelsea Robinson (8) and Sam Jenner (6).

The Kubs played their first league game of the season last Friday, Nov. 21, falling 53-13 at Potlatch. The Loggers outscored the Kubs 23-0 during the second quarter, but yielded six points to Lacey Kludt for the contest.

Up next for Kamiah (0-4, 0-1 WPL), the Kubs will host Troy at 6 p.m. Dec. 2 and will visit Lapwai at 6 p.m. Dec. 4.
