The Prairie boys basketball team boasts of a deep roster this season.

The Falcons needed every bit of that depth to beat Camas 60-53 in a non-league game Friday at Prairie.

Seth Hall scored 19 points, Kameron Osborn added 17, and Greg Bernash did a little bit of everything in the second half to push the Falcons to victory.

“We have a lot of guys who can score, rebound, pass,” Osborn said.

“We’re deep,” Hall added.

Oh, and undermanned, too, due to some injuries.

“This is going to prepare us for later in the season,” Hall said.

Prairie led by nine midway through the fourth quarter, but Camas scored eight in a row to make it 54-53.

“It was a slap in the face,” Osborn said.

Hall said he was thrilled with the timeout after that run.

“Sometimes in your head, it’s just buzzing,” Hall said. “I said, ‘Wait a second. This game’s not over.’ ”

Bernash soared for an offensive rebound and put-back basket for a 56-53 Prairie lead. After a missed Camas shot, the two teams traded turnovers before Bernash found Ethan Rouse with a nice assist and a five-point lead.

Bernash then grabbed the defensive rebound on Camas’ next possession, securing the win.

Bernash would finish with nine points. Braiden Broadbent had nine points, as well.

The game started off on quite the rush. There were 10 lead changes in the first quarter. By halftime, the teams had combined for 14 3-pointers.

Alex Glikbarg led Camas with 18 points. Logan Miller added 11. The Papermakers are without two players as well — still playing football.

In fact, the basketball team has a fun doubleheader of sorts Saturday. The Papermakers are playing Kentwood in the afternoon, then heading to the Tacoma Dome to watch the football team play for a state title.

After Saturday, though, winter sports will get most of the spotlight.

“It’s just fun. I really enjoy getting back in the gym,” Prairie coach Kyle Brooks said. “When November gets here, I’m pretty excited. We have a really fun group, too. It’s going to be a neat journey with these guys.”

Coaches love practice. The players … well, let’s just say they are happy to be playing games.

“Those first two weeks, it’s a grind,” Hall said. “It’s good to finally compete with other teams.”


CAMAS — Logan Miller 11, Tanner Fogle 6, Bryan Nguyen 5, Isaiah Sampson 2, Alex Glikbarg 18, Levi Gilstrap 9, Tre Carlisle 2. Totals 20-48 (12-30) 1-1 53.

PRAIRIE — Kameron Osborn 17, Braiden Broadbent 9, Seth Hall 19, Ethan Rouse 4, Logan Reed 2, Greg Bernash 9, Matthew Kogler 0. Totals 21-42 (7-18) 11-18 60.
