Timberwolf rally falls short at Lake Oswego
LAKE OSWEGO — The Tualatin High School boys basketball team tried to battle back against the top squad in the league.
But the Timberwolves came up just short.
Tualatin, after trailing 30-15 at halftime, rallied in the second half, before falling 56-49 to Lake Oswego in a Three Rivers League boys basketball game played Friday at Lake Oswego High School.
With the loss, Tualatin moved to 7-6 in TRL play (15-8 overall), putting the Wolves in fourth place in the league standings. With the win, Lake Oswego clinched sole possession of the league title, moving to 12-1 in TRL games (18-5 overall).
Senior Alexis Angeles led Tualatin with 18 points in the contest. Sophomore John Miller added eight points for the Wolves, and junior Derek Leneve scored seven.
Junior Josh Angle and freshman Wayne McKinney III led Lake Oswego with 12 points apiece.
Tualatin's scheduled league finale at Sherwood on Tuesday was postponed due to the inclement weather that hit the area. The teams are scheduled to make up the game today (Thursday), starting at 7 p.m. at Sherwood High School.
After that, the Wolves will be the a Class 6A state playoff first-round game, likely at home, to be played on Wednesday.
