Coeur d'Alene takes third at Nike tourney

| December 5, 2010 8:00 PM

BEAVERTON, Ore. - Kyeli Parker scored 19 points as the Coeur d'Alene Vikings defeated the South Eugene (Ore.) Axeman 55-40 to win the third-place game of the Nike Northwest Invitational on Saturday at Southridge High.

"I thought we played really, really well tonight," Coeur d'Alene coach Dale Poffenroth said. "We got things going early in the first quarter, then got some players into foul trouble in the second. We came alive in the second half and mixed some things up and the kids played really great defense. Even though we were down, they hadn't scored many points. Defensively, we played really well."

Carli Rosenthal had 18 points and six assists and Heather Baughman and Sydney Williams had 10 rebounds apiece for Coeur d'Alene (4-1), which hosts Lewiston on Thursday.

"I think getting third in this tournament says we can play with anybody," Poffenroth said. "If there were any questions if these young kids were ready to play, they answered them this weekend. We're playing with the right pieces right now. I was a little worried coming down here, but it worked out well for us."

Ellen Cook scored 19 points for South Eugene.

Sandpoint 35

MOSCOW - Charissa Chatburn and Hailey Olin combined for 20 points, but back-to-back road games and a long bus ride south proved too much to overcome, as the Bulldogs fell to Moscow in a 4A Inland Empire League opener at Bear Den.
