Chelan dominates Omak in 56-29 victory
Love scores 28 to lead the way
By Richard Uhlhorn
Not much to report about Chelan’s victory over the Omak Pioneers on Friday night, January 25, as the Lady Goats extended their league record to 9-1 which kept them in a tie with Brewster for first place.
Omak stayed with the Goats in the first quarter of play, but from that point on, Chelan dominated the game pulling down 45 rebounds, forcing 16 turnovers and stealing the ball 10 times.
Alisha Love was 12 of 17 field goal attempts and four of six at the free throw line to pump in 28 of Chelan’s 56 points. She was followed by a strong performance out of Darby Jenkins who was the only other Chelan player in double figures with 11 points and nine rebounds. Izzy Barth, who is looking stronger with each passing game, scored six points and dished out three assists. With Kelli Bowers still on the sidelines with an injured ankle, Taylor McClellan continued to show spirited play, putting in four points and pulling down six rebounds.
Chelan sustained another injury against Omak when AnnAlise Nelson went down with a badly sprained ankle in the fourth quarter of play. Hopefully, Bowers will be back from her ankle sprain by next week.
“It’s good to see Alisha back to her old self,” said mentor Tracy Williams. Coach Dane Lewman was also pleased with Love’s performance on Friday. Alisha, when asked about her career high performance, modestly said, “It feels good.” Her previous career high was 23 points.
Next week, Chelan travels to Cascade to take on the Kodiaks and then on Friday, February 1, they will be in Okanogan to take on the Bulldogs.
