Eagles win in overtime
The Snoqualmie Middle School varsity boys'
basketball team opened its season on a winning note Thursday as it
came from behind to earn a hard-fought victory against Tolt
Middle School 36-34.
The Eagles found it difficult to score from the outside in
the first half against the stingy Tolt defense. However, with
Zach Elmore clicking on all cylinders in the second half and
Derek Donah and Adam Rothgeb providing the sparks, the Eagles
began to rev back into contention.
With Donah cutting through Tolt's defense and dishing out
assists, along with Rothgeb nabbing steals and Elmore sweeping
the boards, the game headed toward overtime.
The fans were on their feet and time was running out in
regulation, but Elmore pulled up for the three-pointer and hit nothing
but net as time expired to send the game into overtime. Elmore
led all scorers with 19 points, and Donah added nine. Rothgeb
followed with six, and Kyle Dalman contributed a timely two to
round out the final scoring.
SMS falls to Tolt 54-24
The Snoqualmie Middle School's eighth-grade
junior-varsity basketball team suffered a loss to Tolt Middle School
last Thursday, 54-24. Coach Brad Hillard said the team had
an added challenge in their first game of the season because only
six eighth-graders played. Hillard said that despite the loss, the
team should improve throughout the season.
