CdA boys, girls win

Tue., Jan. 18, 2011

The Coeur d’Alene girls basketball team almost got more than it bargained for against Prosser Monday in the SunDome Showdown in Yakima.

With senior post Carli Rosenthal in foul trouble for most of the game, the Vikings (12-4) survived a back-and-forth final quarter to beat the previously undefeated Mustangs 43-42, capped by a wild scramble for a rebound after a Prosser player missed a short baseline jumper with 8 seconds to play.

Caelyn Orlandi paced CdA with 15 points.

Kendalyn Brainard added 13 for Vikings in support of a two-point effort from Rosenthal, who picked up two quick fouls in the first quarter and fouled out early in the fourth after being frustrated all game by double- and triple-teams on the block.

Tamara Jones led the Mustangs with 19 points.

Selkirk 67, St. Michael’s 16: Annie Couch led three double-figure scorers as the Rangers (13-3) used a 27-4 advantage in the first quarter to cruise to a nonleague victory over the Warriors (1-9) in Ione. Jaimi Adams scored 11 and Courtney Holter 10 for Selkirk. Sarah King led St. Michael’s with 5 points.

Coeur d’Alene Freshmen 62, Mullan 39: Carson Simon scored 17 points, including 7 of 7 from the free-throw line, and the Vikings’ freshmen handled the host Tigers (1-10) in a nonleague matchup. Josh Trogden led Mullan with 18 points.

Powered by a 21-12 advantage in the third quarter, the Vikings carried an 11-point lead into the final period and played the hometown Cadets almost even to preserve the victory.

Cody Clayton scored 14 for Eisenhower.

Colville 59, Selkirk 35: Alex Pond scored 20 points as the Indians (7-7) used a 34-12 advantage in the middle quarters to pull away from the Rangers (4-11) in nonleague action in Ione. Hunter Enyeart scored 25 points to lead Selkirk.

Mullan 47, Coeur d’Alene Freshmen 33: Nicole Axtman scored 19 points and the Tigers (4-6) outscored the visiting Vikings’ freshmen by 20 over the final three quarters for a nonleague win. Kennedi Ferraro’s 11 points led CdA.
