Tigers Stay Undefeated With Road Victory Over Loggers

THREE WINS: Napavine, Adna and Toledo All Came Away With Victories Thursday Night


Four Tigers scored in double figures as Napavine had no trouble on the road for an 81-49 road win over Onalaska Thursday night.

The undefeated Tigers (5-0) extend their win streak to five to start the season.

James Grose led all scorers with 21 points, while Cade Evander added 19, Keith Olson connected on 15 points and Laythan Demarest pitched in 11

“Napavine kind of wears you down,” Onalaska coach Todd Dalsted said. “They’re a tough matchup for us. Eventually, their size takes its toll.”

The Loggers rebounded well considering the size disadvantage, only losing the rebound margin 33-32. 

The Loggers trailed by 12 points at the half but couldn’t keep up down the stretch.

“We did a really good job the first half,” Dalsted said. “I’m proud of our guys. They gave maximum effort for 40 minutes. There was no back up in them.”

Senior point guard Danny Dalsted led the Loggers with a team-high 15 points. Cole Taylor scored 12 and Alex Pannkuk chipped in nine.

Dalsted praised Taylor and Spencer Hamilton for their first-half performances as well.

Onalaska falls to 1-4 and hosts Toutle Lake on Saturday. Napavine (5-0) heads to Morton-White Pass on Monday.

Indians Win Third Straight 

Senior Carlo Arceo-Hansen poured in a game-high 25 points and Toledo held off Morton-White Pass for a 60-53 road win on Thursday.

“Our point of emphasis was to get better on defense and win the boards,” Toledo coach Grady Fallon said.

The Indians did just that, tallying 35 total rebounds, led by Hansen and Carson Olmstead, who each had 10 boards a piece. Arceo-Hansen was also perfect from the charity stripe (9-for-9).

Carson Gould scored 11 and Jesse Towns and Carson Olmstead each added eight points for the Indians, who ran their win streak to three games with the victory.

Fredy Fernandez and Ryan Bloomstrom each chipped in three points and Thomas Glass had two as Toledo built a 35-26 lead at the half to stave off MWP’s comeback attempt.
