PREP GIRLS BASKETBALL: Soumas breaks Timberlake career mark for 3s

| December 20, 2020 1:13 AM

SPIRIT LAKE — Taryn Soumas hit four 3-pointers and became Timberlake’s all-time leader in 3s as the Tigers rolled to a 74-26 victory over the visiting Lakeside Knights in nonleague play Saturday.

Soumas, a senior, broke Allison Kirby’s record of 146 3s with her second 3 of the game, in the second quarter. Soumas now has 149 3s.

“It was really cool,” Timberlake coach Matt Miller said. “They (the Knights) were in a triangle-and-two, and the other girls did a great job scoring the ball, and playing aggressively. I was really happy with our balance.”

Brooke Jessen led all scorers with 25 points for Timberlake (7-2). Soumas finished with 16 points, and Blayre Jeffs added 10, and Olivia Hammond and Bernie Carhart scored seven each.

Jolissa Holt led Lakeside (3-5) with six points.

Timberlake returns to action Dec. 30 at Lakeland.

Lakeside is idle until playing host to Clark Fork on Jan. 7.

RATHDRUM — The host Hawks started strong, weathered the storm and then finished strong in the Inland Empire League victory over the Bengals at Hawk Court.

Addie Kiefer had 16 points and seven rebounds for Lakeland (5-3, 3-2 IEL). Katy Ryan had 14 points, nine rebounds, nine blocked shots, four assists and three steals for the Hawks. Kenna Simon had seven rebounds, Payton Sterling four steals, Sydney Hostetler four assists for Lakeland, which led 18-8 after one quarter.

“Way too many turnovers after the first quarter,” Lakeland coach Steve Seymour said. “We played about as well as I’ve seen us play in the first quarter. We did a good job breaking the press, passing for layins, sharing the ball.”

Ryan picked up her second foul early in the second quarter. Lakeland scored just two points in the quarter, and Lewiston came within six points in the second half before the Hawks regained control.

“Lewiston’s press started creating problems in the second, third and fourth quarter,” Seymour said.

Lewiston is 2-5, 1-5.

PRIEST RIVER — Madisyn Beck scored 18 points for the Trojans C team in a win over the Wampus Cats in the consolation game of the Spartan Christmas Tournament.

“We had an 18-point lead and then kind of blew it,” Post Falls coach Matt Barkley said. “Clark Fork started hitting some 3-pointers left and right and started scoring on us in the second half.”

Clark Fork beat the Post Falls C 33-16 on Wednesday.

“The girls had a little bit of a chip on their shoulder,” Barkley said. “Our shots were going in today. It was a fun game for the girls.”

Post Falls returns to action at Lewiston on Jan. 8.

Katelyn Matteson scored 23 points for Clark Fork (2-5), which hosts Mullan on Jan. 5.

"It was awesome," Clark Fork assistant coach Matt Majors said of his team's comeback. "We were down a pretty good amount at halftime and then the girls kind of took a positive mindset and started chipping away and chipping away, and before we knew it we were right back in the game and one possession away from tying it up. We weren't able to do it, but I was proud they were able to come back."
