Cashmere knocks off Omak

Titans speed past Curlew girls, 46-32

— Cashmere used a strong first quarter lead to dispatch Omak, 59-41, in a Caribou Trail League matchup Saturday.

The Bulldogs led, 23-14, after the first quarter behind the 23 points, 10 rebounds and 4 steals of Breanne Knishka.

“The girls played hard, jumping out to an early 6-point lead, but trips to the foul line became the difference in the game,” Omak coach Rolland Hansen said.

Cashmere made 22 of 31 shots, compared to 4 of 8 for Omak.

“We play very aggressive defense and some nights when we keep our hands up it pays off,” Hansen said. “Tonight we got caught reaching and ended up on the wrong side of a lopsided foul situation.

“The girls came back from a tough game against Brewster the night before and continued to work hard as a team. Our teamwork and execution on offense improves every night.”

Shawnee Covington led Omak’s scorers with 14 points.

Lindsey Hughes and Baelie Meese each grabbed 8 rebounds.

BREWSTER – Brewster made a 36-point first-half lead hold up in beating Omak, 71-33, in a league game Friday.

The Bears, which played with only two players on the bench, looked impressive in the opening quarters before leading 44-8 at the half.

The Bears were without two players — one on holiday and another needing more practices to becoming eligible.

“The first half we played well,” Brewster coach Roger Boesel said of dominating the rebounding and defending well.

“I think Brewster’s reputation got to us the first half,” Omak coach Rolland Hansen said. “Instead of respecting them, we feared them.”

Chandler Smith scored 24 points, Monica Landdeck 17 and Markie Miller 14 for Brewster.

“I thought our intensity was not there in the second half,” Boesel said of his team having many turnovers.

“In the second half, we had nothing to lose and played more as a team,” Hansen said. “We are in pretty good shape. We need to play hard like the second half from the start.”

Kaelyn Marchand and Baelie Meese each scored 11 points for Omak.

Omak played with Lindsey Hughes, who hurt a knee in practice.
