Blackhawks top Bantams


DeAngelo Jones and Dalton Harding combined for 40 points, and the duo led the Cheney boys basketball team to a second straight victory over Great Northern League foe Clarkston (14-5, 10-3), 73-70 Tuesday in Clarkston.

A month ago, the Blackhawks (12-7, 8-5) upended the Bantams behind 25 points from Jones. And in the rematch, Jones was once again a factor, scoring seven of his 22 points in the fourth quarter, to push the Blackhawks to the win. The Bantams have clinched at least a share for the title, with their final game against second-place Pullman set for Thursday.

Pullman 54, West Valley 24: The Greyhounds (10-9, 9-4) ran away from the Eagles (11-8, 8-5) early, outscoring them 25-6 in the first half in Pullman. Kalvin Johanson led the charge for the Greyhounds, scoring 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting and adding seven rebounds and five blocks.

Deer Park 55, Colville 31: The Stags (13-6, 9-4) entered the day as the third team gunning for a GNL title and did nothing to hurt their position against the Indians (4-15, 3-10), using an 11-4 run in the second quarter to build a nine-point halftime lead in Deer Park. Colton Peone scored 20 points for the Stags.

Riverside 48, Medical Lake 37: Kelly Vaughn had 13 points and 10 rebounds and after scoring just 15 points in the opening half, the Rams (7-12, 4-9) scored 33 in the second to outlast the Cardinals (2-17, 1-12) in Riverside.
