Napavine senior Keith Olson scored a game-high 21 points on 10 of 13 shooting and the Tigers blasted Onalaska 83-38 on the road for a Central 2B League victory on Wednesday.
The Tigers got the Loggers in foul trouble early, with Ony racking up seven fouls in the first four and a half minutes. Despite that, Napavine led just 17-11 after one quarter.
“We hung in there pretty good at first,” Onalaska coach Wayne Nelson said.
Then the Tigers exploded for a 23-11 run and held the Loggers to just 16 points in the second half to claim victory.
James Grose added 19 points and Jarin Prather 13 for the Tigers, who have now won three straight.
Kole Taylor led the Loggers with 13 points, while Case McGraw added nine and Mason Ulery finished with six.
“Mason Ulery played hard and did a good job defending Grose,” Nelson said. “We just didn’t give him much help.”
Onalaska (1-9, 0-4 C2BL) heads to Rainier on Friday. Napavine (10-2, 4-1 C2BL) travels to Wahkiakum on Friday.
