HRV girls fall to Parkrose in hoops play-in

February 25, 2012

In their 5A play-in game Tuesday night, the Parkrose Broncos were hoping to neutralize their turnovers

with their quickness, while the Hood River Valley Eagles were hoping to counter their own turnovers

with their shooting ability.

Parkrose was able to succeed in their strategy. The Eagles were not and the end result was the Broncos

rallying from a 13-point deficit to beat the Eagles 45-42 and advance to the state playoffs.

Jaycee Jointer led Parkrose with 18 points. Emili Methivier had a fantastic final game in an Eagle

uniform and led HRV with 11 points.

The Parkrose gym was deathly silent for most of the first half as the Eagles built a 22-9 lead, using a

13-0 run spanning the first and second quarters. The Broncos were held scoreless until 2:15 remained

in the half, but once they got going, it was hard for HRV to stop them. The Broncos outscored HRV 9-

5 over the final 2:15 of the half and then outscored HRV 27-15 in the second half.

The Broncos dominated the Eagles on the boards, collecting 40 rebounds to HRV's 25. Many of those

rebounds came on the offensive end, giving Parkrose second, and many times third chances to either

score or draw a foul.

After Parkrose came out aggressive in the second half, the Eagles appeared to regain their confidence

and momentum after Parkrose coach Da'Love Woods received a technical foul arguing a call with three

minutes left in the third. Natalya Ames hit both free throws and the Eagles were able to take a six point

lead into the final quarter. But then everything fell apart for HRV. A Sydnee Ennes three pointer tied

the game with 6:30 to play. They eventually took the lead on a putback by Audrey Frison to go up 40-

40.

The Eagles eventually tied it up at 42-42 on a pair of Bailey free throws with 1:54 to play, but while

they had several more opportunities, they could not score again.

They missed several put backs on a chance to go ahead after Parkrose hit a free throw.

With Parkrose in the double bonus, Jaycee Joyner calmly hit two free throws for a three point Parkrose

lead with 12 seconds left. The Eagles turned the ball over on the subsequent inbounds play, but Frison

missed both free throws with a chance to seal the game.

The Eagles hurried the ball up the floor for a chance to tie, but a Bailey three rimmed short off the

buzzer as time expired.

Parkdale third graders sing "12 Disaster Days of Christmas"

Welcome to your sing-able Christmas gift list. What follows is an emergency rendition of “12 Days of Christmas” – for outfitting your home or car in case of snow storm, earthquake, flood or other emergency. Read it as a simple list, or sing it to the tune of “12 Days” – you know, as in “ … and a partridge in a pear tree…” Not to make light of it, but the song is a familiar framework for a set of gift ideas that you could consider gathering together, even if the recipient already owns items such as a bunch of coats, tire chains and flashlights. Stores throughout the Gorge are stocked up on all these items. Buying all 12 days might be prohibitive, but here are three ideas for checking any of the dozen off your list (notations follow, 1-12.) The gift items needed to stay warm, dry and safe are also coded to suggest items in your abode (A) in your car (C) or both (B). 12 Gallons of Water (A) 11 Family meals (B) 10 Cans of propane (A) 9 Hygiene bags (B) 8 Packs of batteries (A) 7 Spare coats (B) 6 Bright red flares (C) 5 Cozy blankets (B) 4 Tire chains (C) 3 Flashlights (B) 2 cell phone chargers (B) 1 And a crush-proof first aid kit (B) Price ranges? Here’s a few quotes for days Three, Two, Four and Nine: n A family gift of flashlights (three will run $15-30, Hood River Supply, Tum-A-Lum) n Cell phone chargers (two will run $30-60) n Tire chains (basic set, $30, Les Schwab, returnable if unused for the winter) n Family meals ($100 or so should cover the basics for three or four reasonably well-fed days) n The home kit should be kept in a handy place near an exit, and remember that water needs to be replenished every few months. If you have a solid first aid kit already, switch out the gift idea with “and-a-sto-o-u-t- tub-for it-all …” Otherwise, it’s a case of assembling your home or car kits and making sure all members of the family know what the resources are and how to use them (ie flares and propane). Emergency situations are at worst life-threatening, at best deeply uncomfortable if you and your family are left without power for an extended period, or traveling and find yourself in a situation where you need to wait out a storm, lengthy traffic delay, or other crisis. Notes on the 12 gift ideas: 12 – Gallons of water: that’s one per person in a four-member family to last for three days, the recommended minimum to be prepared for utility outages. 11 – Easy-open packaged goods, energy bars, dried food and nuts are good things to include for nutrition. Think of what your family of four needs for three days to stay fortified and hydrated (see number 12). Can-opener also recommended 10 – If you have a propane camping stove, keep extra fuel handy. 9 – Hygiene bags: put packaged moistened towelettes, toilet paper, and plastic ties in large garbage bags (for personal sanitation) Resource list courtesy of Hood River County Emergency Management, Barbara Ayers, manager/ 541-386-1213. The county also reminds residents to Get a Kit, Make A Plan to connect your family if separated, and Stay Informed. See www.co.hood-river.or.us to opt-in for citizen alerts. Enlarge
