PHS girls basketball: Emma Pankalla

Philomath sophomore Emma Pankalla secures a rebound in a game earlier this season at Stayton. The Warriors will get another shot at the Eagles at home Friday. Pankalla scored 22 Tuesday at Yamhill-Carlton.

In its first game since former head coach Dave Garvin's resignation, the Philomath High School girls basketball team continued a painful and unfortunate trend Tuesday in a road game at Yamhill-Carlton with a 56-52 loss in overtime.

The team's last four games all ended as single-digit losses with two of the last three by four points or less. Philomath hasn't caught a break as far as quality goes in the Oregon West Conference either with all six teams included among the top 16 in the OSAA Class 4A rankings.

The game was close all the way with the score tied at halftime, 29-29, and at the end of regulation, 47-47. In overtime, the Tigers had the upper hand with three baskets and three fields goals to get the win.

Free throws proved to be a major factor in the outcome with the two teams combining to shoot 50 foul shots in the contest. The Tigers made 23 of 35 and the Warriors made 17 of 25. Philomath had the better percentage at 68 to 66 percent, but the Tigers had more opportunities.

Emma Pankalla, sophomore, scored a game-high 22 points on seven field goals and 8 of 10 free throws. Pankalla scored 18 of those 22 after halftime. Senior Haidyn Ecker scored eight on two baskets and 4 of 4 free throws and junior Lauren Berklund also scored eight on three baskets and 2 of 5 free throws.

Sadie Horne scored 20 to lead the Tigers, which improved to 12-6 overall and 2-3 in league play.

Philomath falls to 9-9 on the season overall with an 0-5 mark in the conference. The team begins its second run through the league Friday with a home game against Stayton.
