Horizon 73 Sherman 50

Cameron Root led the Hawks with 25 points, while Josh Larsen added 15 points and Jake Johnson 11 points as the Hawks dominated in the fourth quarter to get the win.

With Sherman focusing on stopping Bobby Cofrances, Larsen stepped up to fill the scoring gap for the Hawks, as well as collecting 12 rebounds.

“Josh is playing very, very well with a lot of poise and patience,” Hawks Coach Ron Haynes said.

The Eagles got 21 points from Meredith Danko and 11 points from Rachel Perry, but it was not enough to overcome the 36 points that Reynolds’ Rachel Scarpeli and Renee Tzeo combined to score as the Raiders kept the Eagles at bay with several key shots in the second half.

“We would get the lead down to five or six points then the Raiders would hit a big shot,” Hood River coach Phil Hukari said.

Shorthanded because of illness, the Hawks rotated through their bench, allowing younger players to get playing time, and almost the entire roster to score in the loss to the Knights. The Hawks were led by 7 points from Laura Yates, while Hannah frost added 6 points and Jacque Mellow 4 points.

Dufur 79 Horizon 17

With much of the team still sick, the Hawks continued to rotate players against a powerful Dufur team. Sonna Winkel and Jacque Mellow led the Hawks with five points each while Stephanie Ryan added four points. “We didn’t even care about the score,” Horizon coach Amanda Bellus said. “We were just focusing on accomplishing our own goals.”

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
