Chelan 63,
Omak 50

Jan. 13
The Chelan boys basketball team rose to the challenge on the road at Omak Friday night, Jan. 13 as they beat the first place Pioneers in their own gym 63-50.  Omak is the #8,  1A- ranked team in the state and prior to last night was 11-2 and in sole possession of first place in the Caribou Trail League.
The win moves the Goats into a first-place tie with Omak. Both teams are 6-2 in league and have each beaten each other once.
The game started out very high scoring as both teams came out on fire. They both hit three shots from beyond the three-point line in the first quarter and the game was tied at 20 after one quarter. Omak stayed hot in the second quarter and raced to a 38-32 halftime lead.
The third quarter was a different story.  Chelan took control of the game with balanced scoring and tough defense. The Goats had five players score four or more in that quarter and used a 23-3 scoring advantage to gain control. The Goats continued to play great defense in the fourth quarter and limited Omak to just nine points and 12 for the entire second half.
Coach Callero was pleased with the way Chelan hustled back on defense to stop the Omak fastbreak:  “Omak is a high-scoring, fast-breaking, team that scores in transition. They were averaging 75 points a game over their last five games prior to tonight. To hold them to three points in a quarter and 12 for an entire half is remarkable.”
Chelan got 22 points from junior Dylan Jay, 12 points from sophomore Kellen Reinhart off the bench and senior Braiden Boyd had 20 rebounds to go along with his 10 points.
On. Jan. 14, Chelan turned back the clock as they hosted Tonasket in a non-league match-up at the Chelan Community Gym. The game is part of the annual “Retro Games”.
Chelan will return to CTL play on Thursday, Jan. 19 at home vs. Quincy.  The Jackrabbits are currently 5-2 in the CTL with a matchup vs. Cascade on Tuesday, Jan. 17.

Chelan 59, Cashmere 42

Jan. 9
WENATCHEE - Chelan defeated CTL rival Cashmere on January 9, at the Toyota Town Center in Wenatchee 59-42.
Chelan’s defense held Cashmere to just 16 first half points and the 42 total points allowed is the lowest on the season for Chelan. Cashmere scored 57 against the Goats in their first meeting. (That game was December 20 and Chelan won 90-57).
Coach Callero was very pleased with the intensity and effort of the team. “While we did not have the same offensive explosion we had in our first meeting, it was great to see the defense pick up.”
Dylan Jay scored 27 and Braiden Boyd added 13 to lead the Goats.
The win puts Chelan into second place in the Caribou Trail League at 5-2 (7-6 overall).
Chelan traveled to league leading Omak (5-1) on Friday, January 13. Omak defeated the Goats in their meeting 63-51 on December 16.
Omak is 10-2 overall with their only losses coming against Okanogan and Quincy.
After returning from Omak, Chelan was back in action Saturday, January 14, at home for a non-league game against Tonasket for the annual “Retro Game” in the Chelan Community Gym. Tip off was scheduled for 7:15 p.m.

Chelan 84,
Cascade 56

Jan. 5
CHELAN - Chelan broke open a close game in the third quarter when Dylan Jay erupted for 11 points including a thunderous dunk that stretched the lead to 14 and the Goats coasted to victory.
Ten players scored for Chelan and were led by Jay’s 19 points. Braiden Boyd and Ryan Rainville each scored 16 and Isaac Wilson added 13 points.
Chelan moves into a tie for second place in the CTL as they improve to 4-2 in league play.
Coach Callero was pleased with the patience showed in the second half.
“We were quite deliberate about getting the ball inside to our post players and it helped energize our defense as well.”
