K.C Christensen kept the Eagles in the game with 27 points, while Jon Ing pitched in with 21. Seth Amaral added 9 and Jordan Fogle 8 points for the Eagles.
Dallas 64 Hood River Valley 47
The Eagles rallied late to cut a Dalles lead to 5 points, but could not get over the hump as they fell to Dallas on Tuesday. Hood River players shot less than 50 percent from the free line, and wore down under an aggressive Dallas defense. Meredith Danko lead the Eagles with 25 points, while Audrey Mallon added 7 and Melissa Bramlett had 6 points.
Southwest Christian 50 Horizon 17
Southwest Christian used its three players over 5’10” to dominate the inside game in a victory over Horizon on Tuesday. Horizon had no one to match the height of its opponents, a bitterexperience that Hawks will hope to learn from. “We used it as a learning experience as we know we will be facing more tall teams in conference play,” Coach Amanda Bellus said.
Larua Yates led the Hawks with 6 points, while Hannah Frost added 4 points and Jacque Mellow scored 3 points.

Lawnmower torches Arbor Vitae on Portland Drive
The riding lawn mower driven by Norma Cannon overheated and made contact with dry arbor vitae owned by Lee and Norma Curtis, sending more than a dozen of the tightly-packed trees up in flames. The mower, visible at far right, was totaled. No one was injured; neighbors first kept the fire at bay with garden hoses and Westside and Hood River Fire Departments responded and doused the fire before it reached any structures. Westside Fire chief Jim Trammell, in blue shirt, directs firefighters. The video was taken by Capt. Dave Smith of Hood River Fire Department. Enlarge
