LAKE OSWEGO — The Hermiston Bulldogs returned to the court after four days off, and looked as if they were on their way to their second victory of the season.

But like similar outings, they weren’t able to last the full 32 minutes and fell to Oregon City, 42-39, on Day 1 of the Lake Oswego Nike Interstate Shootout.

The game marked the first of many in the four-day tournament that is comprised of 24 teams, including Hermiston. Among the mix are the top schools from OSAA’s Class 6A, Southridge and McNary, and from Class 5A, Marist Catholic and La Salle Prep.

Hermiston went toe-to-toe with No. 2 seeded Oregon City and entered the break with a narrow 25-22 lead. But a sluggish third quarter for the Bulldogs (1-8) and a breakout third for the Lakers (2-5) gave Oregon City a late lead that it would hold until the final buzzer.

Leading its efforts was senior Kylie Guelsdorf, who scored 14 points.

For Hermiston, junior Jordan Thomas finished with a team-high 12 points.

With the loss, the Bulldogs move into the consolation bracket and face host school, Lake Oswego, on Friday.
