Jaicee Harris makes one of her numerous lay-ins against the Oroville Hornts during the annual Retro Night game at the Chelan Community Gymnasium.
Lady Goats thump Hornets 48-22
by Richard Uhlhorn
It was to be expected. A small 2B Class school travels 90 miles south on a winter night to take on a basketball team that is already being seen as a state contender in the CTL.
The Oroville Lady Hornets played an excellent first quarter against the Goats with a blistering defense and kept themselves solidly in the game when that quarter ended with a score of 8-3.
In the second quarter of play, the Goats put their own form of pressure on the Hornets and began forcing turnovers which were converted into points quickly and at the half, it was already 28-10.
Nothing really changed in the second half and Chelan fans were feeling sorry for the Hornets who never gave up, but just didn't have the buzz to keep up with the well coached and talented Chelan Lady Goats.
Jaicee Harris led the Goats with 18 points, seven rebounds and four steals, followed by point guard Kelli Bowers who added nine points to the outing.
The community gymnasium had a festive air as students, players and coaches turned back the clock by wearing clothes and uniforms from the 60s, 70s and 80s, making it a fun night in the old gymnasium. Everyone one loves basketball in the community gymnasium and hopes that it will be used more when the facility is updated.
The Lady Goats next outing is on Saturday night against the Cashmere Bulldogs in Cashmere.
