Chelan boys 58, Cashmere 56
By Vince Lovato, Editor

Cashmere High School's Coleman McElroy converted a layup with about 39 seconds left to play to complete a minor comeback against host Chelan Thursday night and tie the rival game at 56-56.

But Chelan's Kai Clausen banked in an awkward 14-foot jump shot at the buzzer to preserve the Goats' victory. The win puts Chelan in a first-place tie with Brewster in the Caribou Trail League and sets up a showdown at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Brewster.

Until his buzzer beater, Clausen missed six shots from the floor, but after his game-winner, his teammates and a few fans dog piled on him in celebration.

Clausen's shot was a reflection of the game and season for Coach Joe Harris and the Goats. Nine players scored against Cashmere as Harris searched for combinations of players to thwart the Bulldogs' aggressive play.

Harris admonished his players to "block out," and "rebound," and "don't be afraid to take a charge," against the Bulldogs, who seemed to slice between and around Goats to pick off rebounds in the first half.

After trailing 15-9 at the end of the first quarter, the Goats went on a furious 18-7 run in the second quarter, spurred by nifty passing and clutch shooting from senior guard Michael Amsel, Jr., who led all Goats with 20 points.

They maintained their 27-22 halftime advantage as the teams battled for 18 points apiece in the third quarter to set up the dramatic finish.

Senior forward Aaron Schramm scored 16 points.
After losing their season opener, the boys have won nine straight games.

Lady Goats 36, Cashmere 31

By Vince Lovato, Editor

Most of Thursday's CTL game between rivals Cashmere and Chelan was dictated by physical play. At times it looked like roller derby instead of basketball.

Twice during the game, Chelan starters were sprawled on the floor with minor injuries. At least four other times, players from both teams were grappling on the court for loose balls. Players from both teams often seemed frustrated by the inability to score easily.

Junior forward Abby Phelps went down with leg cramps and senior guard Emily Schramm injured her leg after getting buried in a scramble for a loose ball.

But when it counted the most, it was the Lady Goats' finesse and grace under pressure that decided the game.
Phelps and senior forward Courtney Dietrich both hit one-plus-ones in the last 19.8 seconds with the game on the line to preserve the victory.

Dietrich seemed to be a target for the Lady Dogs, who hacked, held and ran through her all game. Cashmere held her to seven rebounds and 6 points but she composed herself enough to hit her bonus shots with 9.6 seconds to play to ice the victory.

With the attention on Dietrich, Phelps thrived, collecting a whopping 22 rebounds and scoring 15 points to lead all scorers.

"It was another close one," said Chelan Coach Frank Phelps. "They're all going to be like that."
The Lady Goats, who were 12-12 last year after a dramatic run through the playoffs, remain undefeated at 8-0 and 4-0 in the CTL. They travel to undefeated Brewster for a first-place showdown on Friday.

Erick Garcia made the finals in a stacked 132-pound bracket and placed second.
