Douglas girls win one, lose one

Douglas sophomore Emily Haas recorded her second double-double in as many games to help the Douglas Tigers improve to 1-1 with a 53-41 win over Mazama High of Klamath Falls, Ore., Thursday in the first round of the Galena Mountain Classic.

Haas scored 12 points and had 13 rebounds in the win over Mazama.

Junior point guard Andrea Honer added 10 points, eight steals, six assists and three rebounds.

“We played pretty well in spots,” Douglas coach Werner Christen said. “We’re just real inconsistent right now.”

The Tigers opened the season with a 57-33 home loss to the Galena Grizzlies on Tuesday.

Galena blew open a close game with a 14-0 run that spanned six minutes and ended midway through the second quarter. The Tigers missed 12 shots from the floor during the run and made only 26 percent (seven for 27) of their field goal attempts in the first half, allowing the Grizzlies to post a 27-14 lead at the intermission.

Poor shooting from the free-throw line also plagued the Tigers. Douglas made just five of 21 foul shots in the game, including missing their first nine attempts.

Haas scored 13 points and pulled down 17 rebounds in her varsity debut against the Grizzlies.

Tarrah Kizer, also sophomore playing her first varsity game, added eight points and six rebounds.

Senior Lisa Doner finished with four points and six rebounds.

Galena senior Kellie Burton scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Grizzlies in both categories. Sophomore Joanna Hixon scored 16 points and had seven rebounds to go along with four steals.
