Tigers battle Chelan before fading late


TONASKET – Tonasket’s boys basketball team frustrated Chelan for a half.

The Goats, though, returned the favor with some halftime adjustments that erased the Tigers’ slim lead as Chelan pulled away late to a 55-34 Caribou Trail League victory.

The Tigers held an 18-14 lead at the half, but the Goat’s 1-1-3 halfcourt press took Tonasket out of its offense in the second half.

Chelan’s Michael Amsel proved to be a thorn in the Tigers’ flesh as well.

Amsel finished with a game-high 18 points.

Dyllan Gage led the Tigers (4-2, 0-2 CTL) with 10 points, Derek Sund added eight and Michael Orozco chipped in with six.
