After hanging within five points of 6A Oregon City Pioneers at home Tuesday evening, the Hood River Valley varsity boys basketball team came out flat after halftime, allowing the visiting team 14 unanswered points in a dismal third quarter in which the Eagles were outscored 20-6. The 65-43 loss — which was a rescheduled matchup from a cancellation earlier this season — puts the Eagles at 4-12 overall and 0-4 in the Columbia River Conference with five league games remaining.
HRV’s Ryan Wheat continued his team-leading performance with 17 points in the game; the highest from any player on the court. Luke Kopecky wasn’t far behind with 13 for the night. The team traveled Friday to Hermiston to take on the 5-13 (overall), 3-1 (CRC) Bulldogs but results weren’t available as of press time.
