GoLakeChelan.com Tuesday evening
“It was a great game,” stated Tracy Williams during a Monday telephone call. The Chelan Goats got to play the Pioneers on their new basketball court. “It’s beautiful. All hardwood and they lowered the ceiling which makes the lighting excellent,” added Williams.
Coach Joe Harris reported that Chelan was able to break Omak’s pressure defense. “This created several easy scoring opportunities,” said Harris. “We out rebounded Omak 41-25. Zane Sandum, Cam Reister and Mat Engstrom made huge contributions on the boards during the second half.” Chelan had 16 offensive rebounds.
Chelan held Omak to 14-40 shooting in the second half by stepping up its defensive pressure and making better decisions on the offensive side of the court. “This helped us shoot 71 percent from the field in the second half,” reported Harris.
Chelan plays the Brewster Bears on their court this Tuesday evening. If you can’t make it to the game in Brewster, GoLakeChelan’s Dennis Rahm will begin broadcasting the games live over GoLakeChelan.com.
