VALE — The Irrigon girls basketball team’s win streak came to a halt on the road against Vale. In the EOL league opener, the Vikings welcomed the Knights and with it a 37-24 victory.

Leading Irrigon’s efforts was senior Olivia Luna with six points. Three other Knights (11-2 overall, 0-1 EOL) scored four points apiece.

“It was actually a close game until the last few minutes,” head coach Mike Royer said, “when we just ran out of gas, and frustration set in. We struggled offensively all night, but a lot of that was Vale defending us very tough. Nothing came easy.”

The Vikings (3-8, 1-0) had a narrow two-point lead entering halftime, and again held a two-point led going into the fourth quarter — which they eventually extended to 13 points.

Continuing with league play, Irrigon will host Riverside on Tuesday at 6 p.m.

PILOT ROCK 46, UNION 44 — At Pilot Rock, Grace Austin’s lay-in with 1.9 seconds left gave the Rockets a win over the Union Bobcats in front of a packed gym on Saturday evening.

Austin’s basket came off an offensive rebound, grabbing a missed shot by Sara Weinke and putting it right back in for the win. It was quite the game for Austin, coincidentally on her birthday, as she finished with 10 points and 10 rebounds. Kayla Deist led the Rockets (10-5) with 13 points and 10 rebounds.
