Timberline outscored Prairie 9-11 in the first quarter and still led by 2 at halftime 22-24.

Tyler Forsmann scored 6 of his team high 14 points in the third quarter. He had a double-double as he also led the team in rebounds with 11.
Devin Schmidt and David Sigler were also in double figures with 12 and 10 points respectively. 
Sigler also had 7 assists and 6 steals.
Schmidt, normally the first man off the bench, got to start as Branden Waller missed the game due to academic concerns.

Pirates beat Lapwai by 30
In a rugged contest in which probably there probably could have been twice as many fouls called as were called, the Prairie Pirates pulled away in the second half for a 62-32 win over Lapwai Saturday, Jan. 24 at Cottonwood.Kyle Daly appears to get smacked alongside the head as he got inside for a shot. At left is Tyler Forsmann.
Lapwai jumped out to the early lead in the game at 2-6 but Prairie then went on a 10-0 run to take a 12-6 lead by the end of the quarter. Five different players scored 2 points each in that 10-0 run for the Pirates.
A 3-pointer by Lapwai in the second quarter helped cu the lead to 2 at 13-11 but Prairie then went on a 12-3 run to take control of the game.
David Sigler scored 6 of those 12 points and Devin Schmidt scored 3.
One of Lapwai’s top scorers, Harry Taylor, got into foul trouble and didn’t score at all.
Prairie had another 10-0 run to start the second quarter with Schmidt scoring 6 of those 10 points.
After a Lapwai 3-pointer Prairie scored another 5 straight points, 4 by Sigler as they took a 40-20 lead.
2 of those points by Sigler resulted from the first of 3 technical fouls on Lapwai. Taylor was standing on the sidelines waiting for the ball to inbound it when he got a technical for his fourth foul. He apparently said something he shouldn’t have.
Prairie’s next 3 points in the game also came as a result of technical fouls. Lapwai’s Tyrone Weaskus was assessed a technical after he slammed the ball down on the floor after another Lapwai player had been whistled for a foul. That led to Lapwai coach Jack Yearout being hit with a technical as well. Sigler missed the first but then made the other 3 free throws to give Prairie a 43-21 lead.
Lapwai may not have liked the way the referees’ calls were going but they certainly didn’t help themselves with their poor shooting as they hit just 11 of 48 shots in the game, 23%.
Sigler scored a driving lay-up to end the third quarter and put Prairie up 47-24 then Prairie opened the fourth quarter with a 7 more unanswered points to push the lead to 30. 5 of those 7 points were free throws.
Prairie was a perfect 7 for 7 at the line in the fourth quarter as they used their free throw shooting to hold off any Lapwai comeback try.
Sigler wound up with 22 points to lead the Pirates in scoring while Schmidt, starting again in place of Branden Waller, added 15 points. Eric Daly scored 8, Kyle Holthaus 6, Kyle Daly 4, Tyler Forsmann 3, and Derek Schaeffer and Andrew Gabica 2 each.
