Gooding 57, Wood River 50 (OT)
GOODING — The Senators trailed early but continued to chip away at Wood River’s lead, tying it up and sending it to overtime where they ran away with it.
The Wolverines led, 15-9 after one quarter, but the Senators cut into that deficit to make it a four-point game at halftime. The third quarter ended all tied up, and both teams scored 16 in the fourth to send it to overtime.
It was the Senators who bested the Wolverines in the extra period, finding their groove and outscoring the visitors by seven points.
“We just hit our open shots and defended well,” head coach Ben Rayfield said of the overtime performance. “We kinda stayed calm and stayed together. That’s what won the game.”
Gooding senior Grace Parker led all scorers with 23 points, while senior Riley Comstock pulled down 10 rebounds for the Senators. Wood River senior Patrea Topp was the Wolverines’ top scorer with 17.
Wood River (5-9) will host Jerome on Wednesday. Gooding (10-6) will be at Wendell the same day.
Shoshone 47, Hansen 37
SHOSHONE — The Indians were able to keep the Huskies at bay and come away with a win on Monday.
Shoshone took a five-point lead after the first quarter, but the second and third quarters were all square, keeping Hansen well within striking distance. However, Shoshone head coach Tim Chapman said his team hit some free throws down the stretch and pulled away for a 10-point win.
“They did a good job, hitting shots and were hanging around,” Chapman said. “In the fourth, we finally kinda pulled it out and extended our lead a bit.”
Senior Cierra Hennings led Shoshone with 10 points, while doing a bit of everything by notching six steals, dishing out five assists and grabbing five rebounds. Senior Ari Regalado had nine points and senior Patti Fitzgerald had eight.
Hansen had three players tie for the scoring lead, as seniors Kendy Kenney and Neilani McDaniel, along with junior Rakel Williams, each had eight points.

Wendell head coach AJ Kelsey said his team played good defense for much of the game, but wasn’t able to keep it up late.
