Silver Valley Sports Recap: Jan. 10-16

| January 17, 2022 10:42 AM



POST FALLS –– The Wildcat grapplers made their way to Post Falls High School for the annual River City Duals.

As per the usual, Kellogg didn’t have an easy road through the event, facing off against Nampa and Rocky Mountain in their pod grouping.

The Wildcats knocked off Rocky, but struggled against Nampa, which landed them in the Silver Bracket for day two.

Wrestlers Wyatt Hei (113), Kolter Wood (120), Jaeger Hall (126) and Raymond Heely (145) all did their part going 4-1 over the weekend for Kellogg, but struggled overall as they lost to Rocky Mountain, Pasco (Wash.), and Eureka — the last two in devastating fashion.

“We went 42-36 for the weekend against some very good competition,” head coach Scott Miller said. “Nampa finished second in the Gold Bracket and beat Post Falls, Rocky Mountain finished third in the Silver Bracket so we had our hands full all weekend, but the kids competed hard and we gave ourselves chances to win duals, which is encouraging.”

KELLOGG — The Moscow Bears made six 3-pointers and forced 11 Kellogg turnovers in the first quarter, and went on to defeat the Wildcats 66-44 in nonleague play Tuesday night at Andrews Gymnasium.

“They blitzed us early,” said Kellogg coach Mike Martin, whose squad fell behind 32-5 after one quarter.

“They threw a press on us, and it was pretty aggressive, trapping the ball right away. It’s a press we have run before, we just didn’t execute, we were sloppy and didn’t make them pay for it.” Senior Sam Kees hit four 3s, three in the first quarter, and finished with 16 points for Moscow. Barrett Abendroth added 15 for the Bears, who ended up with eight 3s in the game. Riply Luna scored 16 points for Kellogg, who suffered their fourth straight loss.

“It was good to see our kids respond (after the first quarter),” Martin said. “They (the Bears) did a good job anytime we were able to go on a little run.”
