Overlake defeats Nooksack Valley 58-47

Nooksack Valley’s boys’ basketball team was defeated by Overlake 58-27 on Saturday, Dec. 20, at Overlake High School.

“We had a game last night also. We came out tonight and played tired,” Nooksack Valley coach Chris Scrimsher said in a phone interview. “It wasn’t necessarily anything they did, we just didn’t play with energy and it was very evident tonight.”

A positive the Pioneers can take away from the game is the bench got to play more minutes in the game and get experience, which should help in the future, Scrimsher said.

The Pioneers takes on North Kitsap next at 2:15 p.m. Friday, Dec. 26, at Port Townsend in a tournament.
