Brewster hands Lady Goats first league defeat
By Richard Uhlhorn
Brewster buried the Lady Goats in the fourth quarter with a 19-5 scoring blitz that ruined Chelanís perch as the only unbeaten team in the Caribou Trail League. The 52-40 victory put Chelan and Brewster into a tie for first place in the league.
This game began with a very quick and clean first quarter which had Chelan on top 12-10 at the buzzer. In the second quarter of play, Chelan and Brewster traded the lead throughout until Kelli Bowers put Chelan on top 22-21 with only 40 seconds to play to the break. Kristen Milliette added a lay-in with 10 seconds remaining to put Chelan up 24-21 at the break.
Chelan came out in the third quarter and quickly jumped to a 27-21 lead before the Bears put a full court press on the Goats and used it to work their way back into the game, tying it at 29-all with 3:05 remaining in the third. Chelan took the lead again and didnít relinquish it, ending the third on top 35-34.
The game got ugly in the fourth quarter for Chelan with Brewster taking the lead with 6:22 remaining and outscoring the Goats 19-5 to win 52-40.
For Chelan, it was Alisha Love leading the charge with 17 points, 11 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. Izzy Barth was back in uniform after her ankle injury in Brewster in December. Izzy had a definite leadership impact, but was still a little tentative on her ankle and will help the team down the road.
Kim Harter had six points and three steals and Kelli Bowers added five, but also turned the ball over 10 times. Brewster was particularly effective at stripping the ball on the offensive side.
Brewster out-rebounded Chelan 34-26, had only 13 fouls to Chelanís 18 and turned the ball over 18 times to Chelanís 24 turnovers.
Chelan hosts Tonasket this coming Saturday evening, January 19, with girls action beginning at 6 p.m.
