After suffering a tough loss to The Dalles-Wahtonka in Hood River last month, the Hood River Valley girls basketball team knew it would have to step it up on defense the next time the two teams met.
They did just that against TDW Friday night in The Dalles. The only problem was their offense failed to show up. The Eagles lost to the Eagle-Indians 28-22, putting TDW in the driver's seat for the No. 2 seed in the Columbia River Conference.
"Well we shot 23 percent from the field, 0-9 from three, Jaci got hurt in the second quarter and Angie was in foul trouble," HRV coach Tom Ames said. "It wasn't pretty."
Bryant hyper-extended her knee and Ames said she would miss Tuesday's game with Hermiston for sure and then would be re-evaluated after that.
The Eagles were scheduled to host Hermiston Tuesday night before traveling to Pendleton Friday.
"Winning Tuesday would be a bonus," Ames said. "Friday is a must-win game."
The Eagle boys, meanwhile, lost their 12th straight game as TDW cruised to a 58-37 win.
With main scoring threat Chris Dirks hobbled by an injury during the game, the Eagles never mounted a serious threat in the second half.
"We ran into scoring problems against The Dalles and had a couple of bad breaks offensively and defensively," HRV coach Zach Pauls said.
With six games left in the regular season, Pauls said he just wants to see his team continue to play hard and put itself in a position to win its play-in game at the end of the season.
"We just need to go out and compete," he said.
After the HRV girls hosted Hermiston Tuesday night, the Eagle boys are slated to host Pendleton Friday night.
