2018 Premature Playoff Predictions, Week 4

It's time for another season of Premature Playoff Predictions. Much has changed about Oregon high school football in the past year, but I got my spreadsheets adjusted, and (assuming I didn't make any typos) I'm ready to start guessing at what will happen.   Game predictions are based on the Freeman rankings...

Lady Bucks Still Rolling


Second year coach Dave Matlock, has The Lady Bucks playing very well as they continue to gel for the upcoming league battle in the always tough Tri-River Conference starting next week when they host rival Kennedy(5-1). Although Matlock is only in his second year at the helm, he brings quite a resume of knowledge to the game, and The Bucks are starting to really fall into his system.


Matlock knows something about that same system, that helped propel The Gervais Lady Cats to become easily one of the best programs I have ever witnessed in the valley back in the mid to late 80’s.


Teams led by the likes of Norma Rodriguez, Chris Flores, Susie Kuschnick, Sherry Anderson, and the dynamic duo in twins Luba and Nancy Kostrikin. Boy those teams were fantastic, and a blast to watch. Those old Gervais connections don’t end there either, as Matlock has a Counts on his roster out in St Paul. Erin is the granddaughter of local legend Mel, whose three sons Brent, Brian, and Chris, were all very significant parts of that same era of very tough Gervias Boys Teams. Those were very special years of Cougars Basketball.


The Lady Bucks brought their 5-0 start, onto their home court tonight to face The Colton Vikings, and walked out of the gym with another victory by a final of 47-28. St Paul jumped out to a quick start up 10-0 courtesy of two buckets from Sophomore Erin Counts, and three more from fellow Sophomore Isabelle Wyss. Colton finally got on the board when Junior Jenelle Baker got a put back midway through the opening quarter, but from there on, it was all Bucks to finish the quarter as Junior Emma Connor, Wyss, and Junior Megan Tuck rolled of three straight buckets to end the first quarter up 16-2.


The Bucks opened the second quarter pretty quick, as Senior Dessa Coleman got into the books with a hoop on a great assist from Tuck on the baseline. Colton started to answer back as Senior Grace James connected on back to back two’s to make it Bucks 18 Colton 6. Just as Colton tried to get back into this one, The Lady Bucks put the clamps on the defensive side of the court, and converted for 8 points to stretch the lead to 26-6.


Those points came courtesy of 4 points from Counts(2 Ptr/2 FT), 2 from Wyss, and a free throw each from Connor and Senior Captain Logan Robinson. Colton was able to score the last 4 points of the half with James hitting two very nice baskets including a very smart reverse lay-up off the baseline. The Bucks took the 26-10 lead into the locker room for intermission.


Emma Connor got the scoring started quickly for The Bucks in the second half, when she put one back in off the glass 45 seconds into the action. Wyss then added a nice short bucket down the middle after Tuck fed a great assist while cutting to the hoop. Sophomore Madi Olsen made the back end of a shooting foul for Colton, before Wyss would match it with one off the front end of hers.  Madi Olsen came back down the court for The Vikings, and nailed the game’s first three off the left side of the arc but The Bucks once again answered, when Wyss would add another free throw this time on the front end of a shooting foul.


Robinson then added an uncontested lay-in after the great assist from Wyss fooled everybody in green. The Bucks would pretty much put the nail in the coffin from here, adding another free throw from Wyss, a put back bucket from Connor, and three free throws from Counts, extending the lead to 40-14 before Senior Brooklyn Olsen added the last bucket of the quarter for her Vikings.


The Bucks opened the scoring in every quarter tonight, and the fourth continued the streak with a free throw from Tuck. This was by far, the most competitive quarter for The Vikings on the night, and they opened their fourth quarter scoring with a nice little runner from Booklyn Olsen. James who would lead The Vikings in scoring, came back down after a turn over and popped a three from the left arc to bring it back to a 20 point lead(41-21) with 3:51 left in the contest. Junior Maddie Travis, got her name into the book with a nice bucket down low, but St Paul’s Wyss answered it with one of her own once again off a great assist from Tuck to push the lead back to 20.


Colton rolled off the next 5 points of the game, with a free throw courtesy of a bucket from James and a free throw, as well as two free throws from Senior Katie Willis, to finish The Vikings scoring for the night. St Paul would finish it off with two free throws from Connor, and the finale coming off a basket slicing to the hoop by Counts courtesy of an outstanding set up assist from Junior Rachel Vela. Final St Paul 47 Colton 28.



St Paul(6-0), will now travel to North Clackamas Christian on Saturday December 16, before coming home next week to open league play against Kennedy. Colton(2-4), will return home to face Sheridan/Japanese Charter on Friday December 15. GO BUCKS!
