The team had a slow start against Valley and began the second quarter down by 10.
“Baylee Olsen really carried us offensively in the first half as the team really struggled to score,” said Coach Rob Garrett. “We slowly gained on them the rest of the game giving ourselves a three point lead with just over a minute to go.
"They (Willapa Valley) hit a couple shots and a couple free throws to take a three point lead of their own with 30 seconds left. Sam Boyce hit one of two from the line to put us down two and drove the length of the court for a layup to tie it up with six seconds to go. After WV missed an eight footer for the win, we secured the rebound and went into overtime.
"In overtime we really dominated; we finally played like we should have the whole game. We moved the ball well and took it to the basket. We won overtime 13-6. Sam Boyce hit four straight free throws to secure the victory.”
