It's maybe not all that lady- like but the rough and rugged play is paying off with wins. The Cards have begun to employ an aggressive style of play that coach Justin Blayne referred to as "trench warfare" and the effort paid off in a pair of wins last week, 48-42 over Deer Park and 35-30 against Colville. Those efforts have been built on solid defense and rebounding and have helped Medical Lake even their Great Northern League record at 6-6 and 7-11 overall. Going into the final two regular season games of the season - this past Tuesday at Riverside and tonight (Feb. 18) when they host Cheney at 7:30 - the Cardinals are in line to nab the league's third-place spot in the standings and some home court advan- tage in the initial rounds of the GNL playoffs. Medical Lake will have to go without senior Kaitlin McNeill who suffered a painful ankle sprain Friday night against Colville. Blayne said McNeill, who has been leading the Cards in scoring, will sit out the final two GNL games, trying to get healed for the playoffs. While a number of things need to happen to get the Cards into the third spot, namely a number of different teams needing to beat a bunch of other Photo by Paul Delaney Colville's Tasha Luu (10) tries to drive against Medi- cal Lake players Kaitlin McNeill (left) and Cassie Shoben (42) while teammate Tana Mords (24) works to get in position for a rebound. Cardinals' Savan- nah Raczykowski (14) and Natalie Pendell are in the background. "L teams, the bottom line is the finish is not bad for a team that finished pre-season 1-5 and started 124 in the GNL. Against Deer Park (2-10, 5-13) last Tuesday, Medical Lake got double figure scoring from Mc- Neill (17), Kylie Tareski (12) and Amelia Cook (10). "Anytime you can have three girls in double figures, ifs a good thing," Blayne said. Medical Lake started out hot with a good first quarter, leading 13-6 and 20-18 at the half. After Deer Park stayed in it through three quarters, still trailing by two at 29-27, the Cardinals outscored the Stags 19-15 in the fourth. Those 19 points were a relative offensive explosion - remember the Cards scored just 13 total in the first half against Deer Park - and just the result of hitting baskets, "some put-backs here and there," Blayne explaine d. On Friday with Colville (6-6, 11-7) in the house, Blayne attributed the win to his team's ability to stick to the game plan. "They scored in the mid-50s the last time," Blayne said, with a lot of points in a 59-47 Indians' victory coming on easy baskets on second and third chances and put backs. "(Tonight) we focused on gettg first missed rebounds and not allowing our opponent to get second and third looks at the basket," he said of the approach. "When we execute that game plan it really changes the dimension of the game and allows to beat a team scoring only 35 points." The plan also included shutting down Emily Pond who scored 13 in her team's win in January. With Cook glued to her, Pond was held scoreless. "She's kind of our defensive stopper," Blayne said of his junior guard. Medical Lake made a brief run at the third quarter, sparked by Tareski's ba 3-pointers, the final hitting the twine as sounded to end the period. "Kylie's po: big momentum shift," and got the Card a 9-0 run that ultimately secured the win in a 30 point game and definitely be th maker," Blayne added.

Cardinals' get top grades for hard work but still can't find way to win col to play gave the Cardinals their first lead since the second quarter, 50249. Colville took command from there with a key basket and some OK free throw shooting that kept the Cardinals just out of range for a win. Two of those came from Indians' leading scorer Cruze Thompson's two free throws that reclaimed the lead. Then Drew Cowbrough's put-back made it 53-50 and Sawyer Bardwell's third point of the game, a free throw with 41.7 left gave Colville a 54-50 lead, just what they needed to survive. Prince would nail a 3-pointer with nine seconds left, cutting it .to 54-53, but Zach Hull's free throw and a last second miss by the Cards and a Colville rebound eroded it. "We don't get any easy baskets - 53 tough points -where the other team gets 20 easy ones where I think they get some off turnovers and lay ups," Brown said By PAUL DELANEY Staff Reporter If the Medical Lake boys' bas- ketball team's won-loss record reflected their work ethic and attitude, as far as their coach is concerned they should be vying for a league championship. But since success is built on bodies making baskets the Car- dinals saw their Great Northern League losing streak extended to four and their record fall to 1-11 in league play and 2-16 overall following losses last week to Deer Park, 55-34 on Tuesday and to Colville on Friday, 55-53. "The effort is A-plus," coach Arnold Brown said. "We keep playing hard." But the Cards are playing with limited bodies and even they are hampered by injuries that include Devon Prince (back), Nick Pacheco (thumb) and Ryan Wagner, on the shelf last week Cards send five to Mat Classic AJ Guidry, runner-up at 215 pounds, will represent Medical Lake at Mat Classic XXII as his team's high- est finisher from last weekend's Re- gion4. Guidryfell to Clarkston'sNick King 5-2 in the championships. "I thought we wrestled hard, you always want a little better than you get/' coach Sam Petersen said of the two days of competition at West Valley High _hool. Other Medical Lake wrestlers who advanced include a pair of fourth place finishers, Dylan Ussel- man (112) and Tim Haynes (160) while Anton King (103) and Dean Petersen (145) both head to Tacoma as alternates. The group leaves today for competition Friday and Saturday at the Tacoma Dome. "This is the best we've done in a while," Petersen said. "Of the five going only one is a senior, which is good for next year." recovering from a concussion. Kevin Fisher was slowed Friday by some pre-game sickness but still contributed 18 points, as did Prince. Pacheco added 10. "That's the thing that kills us, we're not real deep," Brown said. "Without Wagner, that hurts a little bit." Medical Lake put all that behind them Friday leading 13-9 after one quarter and tied 20-20 at the half. They led by as many as six to open the second quarter, but were down by nine near the end of the third. That's before Fisher launched a long 3-pointer as time expired and Prince equaled that with his 3, 1:10 into the fourth that closed the Indians' lead to three. : .The tms finished the game .... tadg leds and basketstight to the end. Fisher's deep 3-pointer from the right wing tied it at 48 and Prince's field goal with 1:40 A span that closed out the third quarter may have really decided things. "It was 30-30 and we called that timeout; it was kind of meant for us and then they kind of go on an 8-0 run or something like that," Brown said. "From the end of the second quarter, all the way to the last two, three minutes of the third quarter, we went on a drought," Brown said. "In those kind of games, that's the kind of stuff that kills you."
