Sports highlights continued through year’s end

(Editor’s note: This article concludes a three-part series on the sports highlights around Powell in 2010. This installment looks at the months of Sept.-Dec. The first two parts of the series appeared in last week’s issues of the Powell Tribune.)

As the 2010 calendar wound down, the local sports scene continued to give fans plenty to cheer about. For some programs it was a little of the old, while others were experiencing things far newer.

NWC defeats Yavapai

Trappers return 1-1 from Arizona road trip

The Northwest College Trappers split a pair of games in Yuma, Ariz., to begin the second semester men’s basketball schedule. The Trappers dropped a 70-54 decision to Arizona Western before bouncing back the following night with a 67-55 win over Yavapai.

In their first contest of 2011, the Trapper men got off to a fast start, but ultimately were hobbled by a tenacious Arizona Western defensive unit. The host Matadors, who began the year receiving votes in the NJCAA Top 25, limited Northwest to just 23 second-half points on the way to the victory.


PHS looks to stay atop 3A West race

After almost three weeks off, the Powell High School basketball teams return to the hardwood this Friday for the start of a four-game homestand. Three of those four games will involve clashes with opponents from the 3A West.

Both Powell’s boys’ and girls’ teams currently boast 2-0 conference marks, making it even more important to hold serve on their home floor.


Number of Panthers competing for Cody Broncs

Indoor track season opens Jan. 14 and, similar to past years, a number of Powell High School athletes will take advantage of a cooperative agreement to compete as part of the Cody High School team. Defending state indoor high jump champion and two-time 3A outdoor high jump champ Kyle Sullivan headlines the sizeable group.

They say life begins at 40. Maybe that’s why it took four decades for yours truly to be served up his first black eye.

The life moment occurred roughly two hours before the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve when the puck at the Yellowstone Quake hockey game ricocheted into the area where I was standing to photograph the game. It bounced off the boards first, but ultimately wound up bouncing off me as I attempted to evade its flight path.

Casper pressure topples Trappers

Stellar defensive effort squandered

Without glancing at the scoreboard, one look at Northwest College head coach Andy Ward’s face told the tale on Saturday night. The Trappers dropped a 70-59 decision to Casper.

“We did our best to give them the game and they stepped forward and took it,” Ward said.

Marshall McArthur’s last-second shot lifted the Powell Panthers to a 53-51 victory over Jackson and saved head coach Mike Heny some significant second-guessing.

“We called a time out to set up the final play, because that’s not really a situation we’ve practiced yet,” Heny said of the tie game facing the Panthers in the waning seconds. “Right as we called it Coop (Powell guard Cooper Wise) got free for an uncontested layup.”
