Powder girls divide two

By Gerry Steele / The Baker City Herald

Powder Valley split a pair of Old Oregon League girls basketball games last weekend.

The Badgers suffered their first league loss Friday, 39-38 at Imbler. Powder Valley then rebounded to take a 74-21 win over Joseph at North Powder Saturday.

Imbler 39, Powder Valley 38

Imbler led the entire game until late in the fourth quarter.

"We were down by as much as 14 points then we battled back and took the lead late in the fourth quarter," said Powder coach Allen Bingham.

"Then, leading by a point, we missed a couple of free throws, and ended up fouling. They hit two free throws with three seconds left to beat us."

Bingham said the Badgers were slow to get started against Imbler. Powder trailed 11-7 after one quarter and 24-13 at halftime.

"We were really slow getting going," he said. "Then we sort of picked things up."

Bingham said the Badgers also hurt themselves by missing several open layin attempts.

Jessica Pedro led the Badgers with 16 points. Jessi Stephens added 12.

"I think we accomplished that."
