Holboke scores 39 as Thunder rally to win in overtime

By Tim Martinez, Columbian Assistant Sports Editor



Fort Vancouver’s Mar’Shay Moore had the game of her life on Tuesday night. But thanks to a big night by Carly Holboke, it wasn’t enough for a victory.

Holboke scored 39 points as the Mountain View girls basketball team finished with a 13-1 run to beat Fort 66-58 in overtime Tuesday despite 47 points from Moore.

“We tried a box-and-one, double teaming, we threw a zone and her, man-to-man,” Mountain View coach John McCausland said. “It didn’t matter what we did, she kept throwing them up and making them. He hit two 3-pointers that banked in from 26 feet out. It was a pretty impressive night for her.”

With Moore carrying the scoring load for Fort, the Trappers led 57-53 with 1:40 left in the fourth quarter. Emma DuChesne hit a 3-pointer — her lone three points of the game — to cut the margin to 57-56.

After a Fort free throw pushed the margin to 58-56, Bailey Gaspar made two free throws to tie the game and send it to overtime.

The Thunder outscored Fort 8-0 in overtime with Holboke scoring four points.

“Carly had a very nice game,” McCausland said. “She was little cold early. But we were able to get some steals, which led to lay-ups by Carly. And she hit some big 3-pointers to keep us in the game.”

The win was the first in Class 3A Greater St. Helens League play for Mountain View (3-5, 1-1). Fort Vancouver remained winless at 0-10, 0-3.
