Eagles slack at The Dalles

January 14, 2006

The Hood River Valley High School varsity boys’ basketball team traveled to The Dalles Tuesday evening to play the Eagle-Indians. After being outscored in the first three quarters, the Eagles’ fourth quarter rally was too little too late and the boys lost their third league game in a row, this time by 10 points (44-34).

“There’s not much to say really,” said Coach Phil Vesel. “It wasn’t pretty. We just didn’t show up ready to play… The boys thought they could relax. The Dalles jumped on us and we were never really able to recover and compete.”

A damaging element to the Eagles’ game was their dismal free-throw ratio of 7 for 17. Meanwhile, The Dalles-Wahtonka shot 18 for 20 from the line.

On a high note, KC Christiensen had a double-double, with 16 points and 14 boards.
