Basketball – Chelan Goats open season with a victory
Report submitted by Coach Dave Spanger from Yakima
The Chelan Goats opened their 2011-2012 basketball season with a 47-40 victory over East Valley of Yakima in the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament in Yakima’s Sun Dome on Saturday, December 3.
Seniors Tyler James (23 points and 12 rebounds) and Matt Robinson (10 points) led the way for the Goats who were a little rusty after having only one week of full squad practice following another successful post season run by the Chelan Football Team.
East Valley played a scrappy full court defense throughout the entire game, but had no answer for the inside play of Tyler James.
The Goats closed well putting the game away with some late free throws by Matt Robinson.
Chelan travels to Ellensburg on Wednesday, December 7, for another non-league game with a quality 2A opponent.
