Sherwood Slogs Past Wilsonville 33-22

This year the NWOC Girls Basketball seedings will be determined on who holds home court and steals a few road wins. Sherwood held serve in the league opener by defeating their mirror image of a team in Wilsonville. Two teams with excellent post play and desperately needing to groom new guards, Sherwood took charge early and never looked back to jump their rival behind  great play from seniors Lauren Codling and Brittany Morales on Tuesday with a tough defensive grind it out 33-22 in what can best be described as a game 'as pretty as a baboon's bottom.'  

 

After three years of watching some artistic masterpieces, this game served as a coming out party for a changing of the guard as both teams started freshmen point guards and dug down into the trenches to stop each other around the basket and daring the other to shoot from the outside. Morales was the difference early on as she canned two deep three's and Sherwood jumped to an early 10-4 lead before Wilsonville answered back with their own 6-0 run behind baskets from juniors Ashley Walters and Megan Arnoldy. The first quarter ended knotted up at 10 each and folks in attendance figured it might be a low scoring affair. Boy howdy were they correct.  Sherwood amped up their defense and packed the key and Codling hit for seven of Sherwood nine third quarter points to capture a 19-14 halftime lead. The game had all the feel of the Oregon State-Pittsburgh Sun Bowl. What fans, players and coaches didn't know was the first half was a high scoring affair comparted to the second half.

 

The third quarter was one Wilsonville Coach Cindy Anderson will choose to put in the rearview mirror as quickly as possible. Two free throws from Walters were the lone points as Sherwood senior Kosha Adamson hit a pair of free throws and a 15 foot jumper in leading the Bowmen to a 29-16 lead going into the final stanza. From their, the home team let speedy frosh point guard Leann Snyder dribble through the Wildcat defense as Sherwood slowed the pace down. As the game ended, everyone felt a sense of relief but Sherwood Coach Liz Barrett will take the 'win ugly' anyday.

 

Keys to the game were Sherwood's Codling ringing up yet another impressive game with 15 points and 13 rebounds. Morales was the difference maker with her best overall game of the year with 8 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists. Only the five starters scored for Sherwood while only three players scored for Wilsonville with Arnoldy, who had just returned from Alaska over the past weekend while missing the Christmas Holiday Tournament circuit, leading the Wildcats with nine points. Both teams showed the effects from a month of cancelled practices and needing to develop guard play. While Hillsboro looks to be th team to beat, there are a slew of teams lining up to try and capture the coveted #2 Seed and a single playoff game against the Mid-Willamette #2 seed to advance to Chiles. At this juncture its anyones guess who will emerge as there is parity galore in the league race this season but Sherwood got off on the right foot by getting by an old nemisis and holding home court serve.

 

Wilsonville-Megan Arnoldy 9, Walters 8, Krueger 5, Clark, Lang, Britsch, Alberts, Gearhart.

Sherwood-Lauren Codling 15, Morales 8, Adamson 4, Babcock-Shields 4, Snyder 2, McGee, Francis, Christie, Smith.
