Mule boys continue struggles on the court
December 20, 2018
The Wahkiakum Mules boys basketball team lost two games this week.
They traveled to Napavine on Saturday and lost 62-57.
"We came out flat on offense and we were slow on defense," Coach Todd Souvenir said. "If we are going to have success, we need to play defense and rebound every night. Our defense can kick start our offense on nights we are struggling. We dug a hole in the first half giving up too many easy buckets and second chance points. I was pleased with the effort on both ends of the floor in the fourth and Quentin and Luke had a great quarter."
Quention Nelson scored 21 points for the Mules. Luke Brown contributed 17. Brody Carlson had six points and five boards. Logan LaBerge had five points and four assists. Isaac Moon added five and Jake Leitz scored three.
Cade Evander scored 42 points for the Tigers.

The Mules hosted a tough Toledo team at home on Tuesday and lost 81-45.
"I thought the guys made some improvements on defense and they showed me that they can play man ,which down the road will be helpful," Coach Souvenir said. "Toledo is a very good team that plays great defense."
LaBerge led the team with nine points. Leitz scored eight. Chance Cothren and Beery had five points apiece. Brown, Carlson, and Damion Curl contributed four points each. Moon and Quigley each had three points.
