Cashmere puts the hurt on Hornets

CASHMERE – The Oroville boys basketball team took to the road on Dec. 29 to play at Cashmere, ranked second in recent state 1A polling.

The long bus trip was made even longer by a 74-42 loss to the Bulldogs.

“We did not play to our potential,” said Oroville coach Allen Allie. “We’re still struggling to play as a team. A poor night shooting combined with too many turnovers usually does not net a win.

“We’re looking forward to start league play this coming Saturday and hope we can get things to start flowing correctly.”

The Hornets (5-3) play at Bridgeport on Saturday. Their next home game is against Pateros on Tuesday, Jan. 10.
