Balanced Eagles roll past Henley

KLAMATH FALLS — Four Eagle Point players scored in double figures, and the Eagles worked through a second-half lull to roll past Henley, 61-42, in nonconference boys basketball Saturday.

Eagle Point (7-9), which got 18 points from Logan Winter and 17 from Jonathan Bolston, opened a 36-17 halftime lead, lost some of it, then finished strong.

"We played very well in the first half," said Eagle Point coach Brian Winter. "I thought we defended well, and we limited them to one contested shot."

The Eagles lost momentum in the third, when the Hornets (6-8) outscored them 17-7.

"We had a hard time finding the bucket and gave up some baskets," said Brian Winter. "Defense had been a strength in the first half, and we had a little lapse in the third. Then we played well both offensively and defensively in the fourth. We were able to get in transition and get the ball inside. We went to the offensive glass pretty well tonight."

Winter had 15 rebounds, including three on the offensive end, and Zach Reed had five offensive boards among 12 total rebounds. Reed scored 13 points and Tyrone Holmes 12.
