Imbler wins girls title

Powder Valley dug itself an early hole and could never quite dig itself out Saturday, falling 41-28 to Imbler in the championship game of the District 7-1A girls basketball tournament at Baker High School.

The Badgers fell behind 9-0 in the first 5:08 of the first quarter, then battled back.

“We just played a little too excited,” said Powder Valley coach Brent Gyllenberg.

“The nice thing about this group is that they can pick themselves out of it. I’m proud of them for their comeback. They worked hard. They didn’t quit.”

Imbler’s Demetria Thompson scored the game’s first seven points. Teammate Malia Mills added another basket and the Panthers led 9-0 before Powder Valley called a timeout with 2:52 left in the first period.

Kelsie White’s floater with 2:23 left finally got the Badgers on the scoreboard.

Imbler led 12-4 after one period.

The pattern continued in the second quarter. Imbler’s Jessica Bingaman and Danika McIntosh each scored four points to help the Panthers take a 23-11 halftime lead.

Two baskets by White, and one each by Katie Hamann and Kate Jones, helped lift Powder Valley back to within 25-19 with 1:19 left in the third quarter.

But Imbler would not be denied, scoring the final four points in the period and six of the first eight in the fourth quarter to build the lead back to 33-21 with 6 minutes left in the game.

Powder Valley made one last run behind five points from Hamann and two each from White and Ali Abrego to get within 35-28 with 3:41 left.

But Imbler answered with the final six points of the game.

Thompson led Imbler with 14 points and 12 rebounds. McIntosh added 12 points.

Jones and Hamann each scored seven points to lead Powder Valley.

Powder Valley hosts Dufur Wednesday. A time was not available for this story.

Imbler’s first state game will be Saturday at home.
