POST FALLS — Post Falls used its speed — and sharing — to remain unbeaten in 5A Inland Empire League play on Tuesday night.

Melody Kempton had 16 points, seven rebounds and five blocked shots and Bayley Brennan 10 points and six assists as the Trojans, who dished out 22 assists, beat the Lake City Timberlake 61-22 in a 5A IEL game at The Arena.

“We got some turnovers and points off those in the first quarter and were able to get out in transition,” Post Falls coach Marc Allert said. “We really shared the ball well and made the right decisions tonight.”

Tyler McCliment-Call had 14 points and seven assists for Post Falls (14-2, 3-0 5A IEL), which hosts Hermiston tonight.

Klaire Mitchell scored nine points for Lake City (10-7, 2-1), which hosts Coeur d’Alene in the Fight for the Fish spirit game on Friday.

Bonners Ferry 43

SPIRIT LAKE — Shelby Starr scored 10 of her team-high 14 points in the second half to push the Tigers past the Badgers in an Intermountain League game.

Taryn Soumas hit a 3-pointer to boost the Timberlake advantage after Bonners Ferry had rallied to make it a four-point game with under four minutes remaining.

“We had a rough night shooting the ball,” Timberlake coach Matt Miller said. “I thought the girls battled hard, but we struggled a little on the defensive end. We made enough plays down the stretch to get a win.”

Lilly Kelley and Brooke Jessen scored 10 points each for Timberlake (11-3, 3-0 IML), which travels to Priest River on Saturday for the Battle for the Buck spirit game.

Miranda Wenk scored 22 points for Bonners Ferry (11-3, 1-1).

St. Maries 56

Wallace 26

ST. MARIES — Christmas break is over, and the Lumberjacks are beginning to gel on offense as the calendar flips to a new year.

The trio of Kaylee Auer (18 points), Kaci Haeg (15 points) and Madison Cordell (10 points) helped host St. Maries open a double-digit lead early against Wallace, and the Lumberjacks worked together on defense to prevent the Miners from closing the gap, coach Jay Sines said.

“We had 19 assists as a team, so we shared the ball pretty well,” Sines added. “It’s starting to come together — we’re getting good shots and open looks, and getting most of them to go down.”

Auer added nine rebounds and four steals, Haeg grabbed 10 rebounds, and Cordell had six assists and four steals for St. Maries (7-4), which travels to Kellogg on Thursday.

Jen Hayman had 12 points for Wallace.

Garfield-Palouse 46

Lakeside 28

PLUMMER — Tara Allen scored 10 points for the Knights, but Katie Arrasmith had a game-high 25 points to lead the Vikings to the nonleague win at Ron Miller Court.

“Our shots didn’t fall and it was a really slow moving game early on,” Lakeside coach Chris Dohrman said. “We played really good defense early, but they jumped out on us in the third quarter.”

Tamara Anderson scored six points for Lakeside (9-7), which is idle until a Jan. 20 game against Genesis Prep at Post Falls Middle School.

Garfield-Palouse 5 10 18 13 — 46
