Print Article


SPIRIT LAKE — Taryn Soumas scored 17 of her game-high 28 points in the third quarter as the Timberlake Tigers defeated the visiting Coeur d’Alene Vikings 76-57 in nonleague play Tuesday night.

“We did a really good job in transition tonight,” Timberlake coach Matt Miller said. “I was really impressed with our transition offense tonight. Both team really just made shots tonight. They pressed us pretty much the entire game, and that led to a lot of possessions. Both teams did a great job of knocking down shots tonight.”

Brooke Jessen scored 25 points, McKeeley Tonkin 11 and Karissa Willis 10 for Timberlake (6-0), which travels to Lewiston on Thursday.

Kelly Horning scored 16 points, Emma Whiteman 14 and Jaelyn Brainard-Adams 13 for Coeur d’Alene (1-4), which hosts North Central on Friday.

Ali Carpenter scored 15 points, Maya Blake had eight points and eight rebounds and Sandy Faulkner had 11 points and six rebounds for Post Falls.

“Offensively, we just shot the ball a lot better than we had been, especially in the second half,” Post Falls coach Marc Allert said. “We got some turnovers and transition baskets. Ali did a great job of attacking the basket and Bubba hitting those shots really opened things up.”

Post Falls (2-4) travels to Gonzaga Prep tonight at 7.

Lakeland 45

Kellogg 42

KELLOGG — The visiting Hawks led 14-0 after the first quarter, then weathered a Wildcat comeback before escaping with the nonleague victory at Andrews Gymnasium.

Katy Ryan had 10 points, five rebounds and two blocked shots for Lakeland (2-3), and Izzy Kirk added 10 points.

Kellogg (4-2) pulled within one point in the waning moments, before two free throws by Taylor Elpers gave the Hawks some breathing room.

“We played an incredible first quarter, and a great second quarter, and then just lost our momentum in the second half,” Lakeland coach Steve Seymour said. “Kellogg made a great run, and we started playing not to lose a little bit.”

Elpers finished with eight points and seven rebounds, and Mel Loutzenhiser had seven points and four steals.

Hailey Cheney scored 12 points to lead Kellogg, which travels to Moscow on Friday.

After six straight on the road to open the season, Lakeland faces Colville on Friday in its home opener.

St. Maries 54

Wallace 27

ST. MARIES — Madison Cordell had 14 points, four assists, three steals and two blocks for the Lumberjacks in a nonleague win over the Miners.

Kaci Haeg had 11 points, seven rebounds and two steals, Jenna Holder nine points and four rebounds and Mackenzie Hammond scored 10 points for St. Maries (3-3), which hosts Bonners Ferry on Friday.

“It was an interesting dynamic,” St. Maries coach John Cordell said. “We had a player go down with a knee injury (Alena Davenport), which was just devastating, but our kids rallied and our bench stepped up big. Our numbers looked good with shooting 40 percent from the floor and 75 percent from the free-throw line.”

Davenport also suffered a knee injury early last season, and was lost for the year.

Maggie Howard scored seven points for Wallace (1-4), which hosts Bonners Ferry on Tuesday.

One Post Falls player fouled out, and four others finished with four fouls.

Moses Lake was 23 of 30 from the foul line. Post Falls was 13 of 25.

“We’ve got to do a better job of playing defense without fouling,” Post Falls coach Mike McLean said. “This was a great learning experience for us.”

Kyle Karstetter was 9 for 9 from the foul line and scored a game-high 18 points for Moses Lake.

Gavven Desjarlais had 14 points and six rebounds for Post Falls (1-1). Caden McLean hit four 3-pointers and added 13 points for the Trojans.

Kellogg 53

Lakeland 49

KELLOGG — Senior Brennen Atkins scored 18 of his 23 points in the second half, including 10 in the fourth quarter, as the host Wildcats rallied to beat the Hawks in nonleague play at Andrews Gymnasium.

Kellogg (2-2) trailed by 13 points at halftime, then Atkins and Raiden Rickets combined for 15 points in the third quarter.

Atkins made four of his five 3-pointers in the second half.

“He kinda heated up in the second half, and that started the comeback,” Kellogg coach Jeff Nearing said. “I didn’t really tell him to (heat up), but when he did, I didn’t tell him to stop.”

Rickets also had five steals for Kellogg.

Josiah Haaland, a 6-9 senior, scored 11 of his 16 points in the first half for Lakeland (1-2). Jeret Taylor added 10 points and 6-7 Jalen Skalskiy added seven.

“They’re huge,” Nearing said of Lakeland. “They just ate us up on the boards in the first half; they had a lot of second-chance points.”

Lakeland plays host to Colville on Friday.

Kellogg returns to Wallace on Saturday, where it lost to the Miners last Saturday in the championship game of the Silver Valley Tournament.

Lakeland 16 14 12 7 — 49

Kellogg 7 10 19 17 — 53

LAKELAND — Taylor 10, Zubaly 6, Seay 6, Munyer 0, N. Haaland 0, Strietzel 0, Skalskiy 7, Derrick 0, Neilson 4, J. Haaland 16.
