Mule boys overpower Rochester in opener
December 12, 2019
The Wahkiakum Mules boys basketball team showed the home crowd what they could do when they rolled over Rochester 78-39 in their season opener on Saturday.
Logan LaBerge led the team with 26 points, scoring 18 from three point range. He also had seven rebounds, seven steals, and five assists. Jake Leitz added 17 points and 11 rebounds. Brodie Avalon had 17 points, hitting four three's in the fourth quarter. Dominic Curl scored eight points. Chance Cothren had five points. Ashden Niemeyer had three points and nine rebounds. K.C. Beery added one point and eight assists.
"I thought we played very unselfishly as a team and got everyone involved," Coach Todd Souvenir said. "We played with good energy on the floor, and the bench was very involved. Our team defense needs some work but overall it was a very successful first game."
Rochester 16 10 7 6 --39
Mules 25 10 19 24 --78
