Prescott Boys defeat Touchet, but lose to Oakesdale


January 30, 2020

PRESCOTT—Prescott played in back-to-back conference games over the weekend with mixed results. At home against Touchet they had a dominating performance with all five seniors (Omar Velazco, Victor Garcia, Jonathan Cardenas, Miguel Ayala and Andrew Patzkowski) scoring. #12 Jonathan Cardenas had an excellent all-around game making 12-15 of his shots from the field, good for twenty-seven points. On the defensive end he contributed eleven steals.

The Oakesdale game was as bad as the Touchet game was good. Absolutely no shots seemed to fall for Prescott. Oakesdale got off to a very hot start with their first quarter shooting and never looked back. Splitting the two games puts Prescott comfortably in third place in their conference. With three conference games left against opponents with losing records, Prescott should qualify for the playoffs. The loss against Oakesdale was costly as it may have cost Prescott the #2 seed and a chance for a home playoff game.

Coach Allyn Griffin’s response to the Oakesdale game. “We just came out flat. We played a really good game last night and it was high energy in the gym. It was a good game. Worked hard and I think we just came out flat.”
