Comets, Ducks take wins over Mules
January 10, 2019
The Wahkiakum Mules boys basketball team lost two this week.
On Thursday, the boys traveled to Toutle Lake and lost 65-56.
"We came into the game knowing we needed to take care of Michael Adams and Logan Grabenhorst and make other guys beat us, which I thought overall we did a pretty good job," Coach Todd Souvenir said. "We held the two to 16 combined points. Brody Carlson had a great night and gave us a chance but they made some clutch shots to keep us just out of reach."
Carlson led the Mules with 27 points, hitting six from three point range. Luke Brown added 15. Logan LaBerge scored seven points, Quentin Nelson had three, and K.C. Beery and Evan Quigley added two each.

On Saturday, long time rival Naselle came to town and took the KM Trophy home after beating the Mules 67-50.
"It was a good game from start to finish," Coach Souvenir said. "I thought our guys did some good things on both ends of the floor. Naselle is a very good team that brings it on the defensive end of the floor and has several that can score from the perimeter. In the end what really hurt us was giving up 17 offensive rebounds."
Brown led the team with 14 points and 10 rebounds. Nelson had 13 points and six rebounds. Jake Leitz added 11 points, LaBerge had five, Beery scored four, and Carlson finished the game with three.
Ethan Lindstrom led the Comets with 14 points. Antonio Nolan and Corey Gregory had 13 points each. Jacob Eaton added 11, Kolby Glenn scored nine, and Jimmy Strange had four. Cole Dorman finished with three points.
