Bruner, Peery, Hinkelman power PHS win
GRANGEVILLE - Jake Bruner (25 points), Terran Peery (17) and Calvin Hinkelman (10) lifted the visiting Pirates to a 74-59 win over Grangeville on the last night of their regular season. The Bulldogs will wrap up on Tuesday night at Orofino.
Prairie weathered Grangeville's early storm, tying the game at 7-7 on Bruner's layup, who on Prairie's next possession came up with a putback to stake the Pirates to a lead they'd carry through the final buzzer.
Grangeville's Dylan Canaday scored all six of his points during the first quarter, with a sharp move on the low block lifting GHS within two, 15-13, with about a minute left in the first quarter. Prairie widened the lead to five on a fast-break layup, then to seven on a triple by Hunter Chaffee (8). Down by five at the first quarter interlude, Grangeville closed within one on a couple of short-range baskets by Dillon Alder (18 points) and Patrick Schumacher (4).
The Pirates delivered the dagger early, surging to a 10-point lead, which they extended to 16 before halftime.
Grangeville whittled the lead to 15 during the third quarter, but another Chaffee trey widened the margin to 22. GHS guard Austin Parks (14) used a crossover dribble to free himself for a three-pointer from the top of the arc, but Bruner answered at the other end with a tough layup in traffic, drawing a foul from Schumacher and converting the free throw.
Grangeville closed the gap to 16 during the fourth quarter, with Layton Harris (7) converting a traditional three-point play on the heels of a triple by Luke Stokes (8).
