PENDLETON — Jaiden Lemberger scored 19 of her game-high 27 points in the second half, but it was not quite enough as Pendleton fell just short against Summit 54-51 on Saturday afternoon.

The Buckaroos (0-2) were down by 14 at halftime but outscored Summit 15-3 in the third quarter to get back in the game. They eventually held a lead in the fourth quarter and traded it back and forth a few times with the Storm, but in the end the Storm hit just one more shot than the Buckaroos could.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the way they fought back to get in it,” Pendleton coach Kevin Porter said. “This game was a coin flip and we called heads, and it was tails and that’s what happened.”

Behind Lemberger, Maureen Davies finished with nine points and both Carissa Cooley and Hunter Kiele added four. Hailee Neibauer led the Storm (1-0) with 20 points and Olivia Loberg added 14.

Pendleton next plays on Tuesday at Southridge (WA) at 7 p.m.

The Pioneers overcame some early woes and secured a 15-point lead at the half.

“We got into some foul trouble early,” head coach Jordon Poyner said after the game, “but guys off the bench stepped up and played hard. We shot the ball well, played good defense — our goal is to hold teams to under 40 points, and we did that today.”

Thanks to that good defensive play and timely shooting, Mac-Hi will enter its busy week of play with good momentum. First up on the Pioneers’ schedule is another match-up with a border-state foe. Mac-Hi will travel to Waitsburg for a 7 p.m. tipoff Tuesday and then follow that up with games at the Heppner Tournament over the weekend.

SPRINGFIELD 59, HERMISTON 42 — It was another rough night for the Hermiston Bulldogs, as they picked up their second loss at the Holiday Inn WIT Tournament. The Bulldogs got off to a good start, and entered the half with a 2-point lead but due to lack of experience on the court, Hermiston was unable to stop a Springfield comeback. The 59-42 loss was in part due to being outscored 16-9 in the third quarter and 19-7 in the fourth.

“We had a good first half,” head coach Casey Arstein said, “but it was a rough second half. It was really a tale of two half’s.”

Arstein went on to say that Hermiston was beaten inside with good post play on Springfield’s end, and that the offense needs to be more aggressive in attacking the rim.

The Bulldogs will have a chance to bounce back tomorrow in the final day of the tournament. Hermiston will face Eagle Point at 12:30 p.m. Eagle Point has looked pretty offensively, and is 1-1 on the tournament.

Hermiston will focus on getting the ball out in transitions more, Arstein added, as well as taking care of the ball. If the Bulldogs can play as good in the second half as they have done in the first, then they may be able to return to the Dawg House with a win.
