Douglas girls, boys split against Galena

Forty-six was the common number the Douglas High School’s girls and boys basketball teams shared Friday night.

For the unbeaten Tigers girls, it was enough to secure a 46-19 Sierra League win against Galena. It wasn’t so fortunate for the boys, however, as Noah Peck’s 3-pointer proved to be the difference for Galena in its 47-46 victory at Randy Green Court.

Peck knocked down his shot from the right corner with 12.3 seconds left to play, erasing a two-point Douglas lead. A.J. Pfaffenberger pulled up and hit a jumper broke a 43-all tie with 1:44 to go and then converted one of two free throws with 39.0 seconds left gave the Tigers a 46-44 lead.

The Tigers rallied back after they trailed by as many as seven points in the third quarter. The score was tied on three occasions in the fourth quarter.

Douglas (2-3 overall, 1-2 league) was led by Pat Johnson with 10 points, while James Herrick and Pfaffenberger added 9 each.

Zack Lessinger scored 12 points and Peck 11 to lead the Grizzlies.

Earlier, Katie McCullough and Leonna Mortimer combined to score 23 points for the Douglas girls.

Douglas improved its record to 7-0 overall, 3-0 in league.

McCullough scored a game-high 12 points, and dished out three straight assists to start the game as the Tigers surged to an early 9-0 lead. Mortimer finished with 11 points.

The Tigers started led 15-6 at the end of the first quarter. Jessie Jim’s 3-pointer early in the second quarter extended that lead to 20-6.
