boys beat Orofino
Traveling to Orofino Saturday, the Summit Patriots dropped a jv match to their hosts, 46 - 18, though the second and fourth periods actually ended with only a 16 -12 margin for Summit's opponents, but then came back in the varsity match, winning their third game of the season in a tough and competitive game ending 37 - 35, Summit. Quarter scores in the back and fourth game, Summit first: 7 - 8, 21 - 17, 30 - 29, and then the final, 37 -35 at the end.
Turnovers played heavily in the low score and narrow victory, as Summit recorded 19, many at crucial times during-the contest. Scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals stats for the Patriots: Derek Nuxoll- 0, 4, 0, 1; Austin Chmelik - 3, 1,2,0; David Johnson - 5, 5, 1, 1, Johnson limited during the game stemming from a minor surgery on his left wrist prior to the game; Dylan Prigge - 23, 7, 4, 1 with one block; and Josh Frei - 6, 7, 0, 3.
Summit's next action is Asotin Tuesday, and here in Cottonwood at Prairie Middle School with their half of a quad with Timberline scheduled to begin at 2:00 P. M.
Summit girls win 2 of 3
Poor foul shooting and excessive turnovers plagued the Summit Patriot ladies last week, as they dropped a hard fought 52 - 44 game to the Lewis-County Eagles, then hung on for a relatively easy win over the Kendrick Tigers, and closed the week with an easy victory over Division II foe Culdesac.
Quarter scores for the Eagles game, Summit first, 9-11, 17 - 27, 27 - 34, and the final 44 - 52 do not tell the whole story however, as the Patriots battled back twice from a 10 point deficit to actually take the lead by three, with a minute to go, and Summit in possession of the ball on the Eagle side of the court. A long pass down court to a would be receiver Savanah Prigge went astray however, and was quickly followed by a bucket from L-C's Michelle Seitz. The resulting inbounds pass turned out to be Summit's 9th turnover in an otherwise low turnover game for the Patriots, and again the Eagles scored, putting them ahead by one. The next few seconds were ugly, as Summit fouls to get the ball resulted in a streak of 12 straight free throws, while the Patriots were still missing on theirs, resulting in a miserable 8 for 24 record from the line compared to L-C's 14 of 16.
Scoring, rebounding, assists, and steals for the Patriots: Jaime Chmelik - 9, 6, 1, 1; Nicole Frei - 4, 0, 1, 1; Tara Stubbers - 5, 6, 0, 1; Rachel Wemhoff - 10,3, 10, 1; Savannah Kuther - 4,1,9,1; and Prigge - 12, 7, 0, 0.
In the preliminary, the LC girls defeated Summit's jvs by a score of 26 - 20.
Thursday evening, at home, the Summit jvs dropped a half game to the Kendrick Tigers 20 - 14, while their varsity teammates were overcoming a horrible 25 turnover game to take down the Kendrick Tigers by a score of 46 - 36, with scores at the breaks as follows: 16 - 11, 23 - 21, and 33 - 25. Stats for the Patriots: Chmelik -17,7, 1,1; Frei3,3,0,2; Stubbers - 2, 4, 0, 0; Wemhoff - 10, 5,9, 1; Kuther - 0, 1,0,0; and Prigge -14,16,1,1. The games were played in Highland's gym as one of four Summit home games that will be played out of Cottonwood.
Closing out the week, again at Home, this time at Prairie High School, Summit easily took the measure of Culdesac in a single varsity game, blowing out to 11 - 7 and 30 - 11 leads at the half time break. Playing several jv players the second half, the Patriots cruised to a 51 – 36 win at the end, allowing the Wolves a comeback in the fourth from a deficit of 19 - 42 at the three quarter break. Game stats: Chmelik10,3,2,3 with one block; Frei - 0, 6, 1, 1; Stubbers - 10,3, 1, 1 with one block; Wemhoff - 5, 4, 8, 4 with 2 blocks; Kuther - 3, 1, 0, 2; Vicki Schlader - 3, 4, 0, 2 with one block, and Prigge - 14, 13, 1, 0.
The two win and one loss week resulted in a season record to date of 6 wins vs. 1 loss, with games at Deary and a home game with Timberline scheduled at Prairie Middle School, a quad with both boys and girls jvs and varsities scheduled to play, beginning at 2:00 P.M.
