Bears overtake Tigers, win by 10

Now 3-1 in district


TONASKET – The Brewster High School boys’ varsity basketball team recovered from a slow start to win a road conference game at Tonasket on Jan. 3.

“Tonasket started out our game playing really well basically making all of their shots,” said head coach Michael Taylor. “We did not start out very well and they took a quick lead.”

Taylor said the Bears battled back to cut the lead by the end of the first quarter of play.

“We had a very good second quarter and built a lead,” Taylor said.

The second half of the game saw a back-and-forth lead change until the Bears pulled away to win by 10, 76-66.

Kelson and Cort Gebbers led the Bears’ scoring with 37 and 21 points respectively. Both players turned in double-double performances with 18 and 11 rebounds.

“Tonasket has good size and multiple quality players,” observed Taylor. “It was overall a good game.”
