Print Article

SPOKANE VALLEY — Even on a bad night from the free-throw line, Post Falls did enough to take a road win on Saturday night.

Melody Kempton had 16 points and 10 rebounds for the Trojans in a 53-51 win over the University Titans.

Post Falls (4-0) finished 6 of 17 from the free-throw line, with University going 16 of 17, including 14 for 14 in the second half.

“We haven’t played our best basketball yet this season,” Post Falls coach Marc Allert said. “We’re still a little up and down, and have some things to work on. It was our first close game, and it was nice to see them find a way to win.”

Sydney Parks had eight rebounds and Bayley Brennan 15 points for Post Falls, which hosts Gonzaga Prep on Thursday at The Arena.

Eli Boni scored 18 points for University.

MOSCOW — Shelby Starr scored 17 points and hit five key free throws down the stretch as the 3A Tigers beat the 4A Bears in nonleague play at Bear Den.

Taryn Soumas scored 11 of her 13 points in the first half for Timberlake (4-1), which led 16-6 after one quarter, and held a double-digit lead most of the rest of the game. Brooke Jessen added 14 for the Tigers.

“Same as the last couple games — we look really good in spurts, and there were spurts where we don’t look quite as sharp,” Timberlake coach Matt Miller said. “We played solid, we played hard, we just need to be more consistent.”

Hannah Broyles scored 15 points, Gracey Meyer 13 for Moscow (1-2), which hosts Lake City on Monday.

Timberlake travels to Coeur d’Alene on Tuesday.
