Plateau hoop teams win three | Prep Basketball

Plateau basketball teams managed to win three of four games Friday night, with the fourth falling just three points shy.

With their victories, the Enumclaw boys, White River boys and White River girls either kept a hold on first place in their leagues or remained very near the top.

The Enumclaw boys’ victory over Auburn Mountainview kept the Hornets’ record perfect in South Puget Sound League 3A play. The squad is 6-0 in league, a game ahead of second-place Peninsula, and 13-3 overall.

The White River boys remained in a first-place tie with Fife and Sumner with their Friday victory. All are 8-2 in South Puget Sound League 2A play; the Hornets are 10-6 overall.

The White River girls improved to 9-1 with a lopsided victory at Clover Park and remain a game behind SPSL 2A leading Sumner.

White River boys

The Hornets held visiting Clover Park scoreless the entire first quarter, setting the tone for next 24 minutes. Playing harder and smarter, White River ran past the Warriors 63-44.

The Hornets rolled to the easy win with three players enjoying double-figure nights. Brandon Garvin finished with a team-high 13 points, Brandon Dove added 11 and Clayton Holm contributed 10 more.

Clover Park’s outstanding scorer Phillip Winston finished with 22 points, most coming in the final quarter, but no other Warrior managed more than five.

White River hosted Franklin Pierce Tuesday and will take on Steilacoom and Orting before finishing with a crucial, home-court matchup Feb. 7 against Sumner.

Enumclaw boys

The Enumclaw crew received 26 points from Drake Rademacher and 19 from Bryce Peterson to register a 65-54, home-court victory.

Zac Webb added 11 points as the Hornets turned a first-quarter deficit into an 11-point win.

Enumclaw took on Lakes Tuesday night and will finish the regular season with games against Peninsula, Decatur and Bonney Lake.

White River girls

Behind an offensive explosion by Amanda Lance, who finished with 31 points, the Hornet girls fashioned yet another dominant performance. White River poured in 24 second-quarter points to cruise to a 37-11 halftime lead and continued rolling to a 62-17 win.

Darian Gore had another double-figure performance, finishing with 10 points.

The Hornet girls hosted third-place Franklin Pierce Tuesday and will travel to play lowly Steilacoom and Orting before getting a second shot at Sumner Feb. 7.

Enumclaw girls

The Hornet girls came oh-so-close Friday night, leading 22-21 at intermission and trailing by just a single point after three quarters of play. The visiting Lions managed a 15-12 advantage during the final eight minutes to claim the road win.

A trio of Hornets managed double-figure scoring, paced by Kylie Rademacher’s 14 points. Kimmy Aubert and Sam Engebretsen chipped in with 10 each.

The loss dropped the EHS girls to 3-3 in SPSL 3A play and 7-8 overall. They traveled to Lakes Tuesday night and will finish against Peninsula, Decatur and Bonney Lake.
