Mikayla Sites drives past a Brewster defender in the home game on Jan. 8. After missing most games in the first half of the season due to an injury, Sites has been receiving a large amount of playing time for Cashmere.

On a fast break, junior Lauren Johnson takes a long pass and puts it into the hoop for two. Johnson was a big part of the Bulldogs tough defense against the Bears, but Cashmere’s offense wasn’t enough to take a win from undefeated Brewster.

The Cashmere girls basketball team (5-3, 11-3) went 1-1 last week after losing a close battle to the No. 1 team in the Caribou Trail League, Brewster (8-0, 13-0), and crushing Omak (1-7, 3-11) by 20 points.

The Bulldogs hosted the Brewster Bears at home on Jan. 8 and it was everything but an easy game. Cashmere, a known aggressive team, matched up well with Brewster's intensity. The girls played hard, but a lot like the Chelan game, baskets weren't dropping in.

The girls seem to be flustered at the end of the first quarter when senior Angela Knishka threw it to junior Lauren Johnson who wasn't looking and the ball went out of bounds. The first quarter ended with the Bulldogs down 15-4.

Cashmere kicked it in gear heading into the second quarter closing the gap to 15-11 with a layup by Mikayla Sites with three minutes to go. The Bulldogs fell behind again at the end of the quarter 27-16.

Cashmere went on an unanswered 10 point streak to make the score 31-26 in the third quarter. The third quarter ended with the girls down by seven.

Cashmere scored six points in the fourth quarter compared to Brewster's 13 points. Cashmere lost 52-38.

The Bulldogs hosted another game on Jan. 12 against the Omak Pioneers. It was an easy home win for Cashmere taking a 23-6 lead in the first quarter. The Bulldogs continued their lead against the Pioneers for a 58-36 victory.

Senior Erica Spanjer, who returned a few weeks ago after a head injury, scored 13 points. The team crashed the boards hard for a total of 28 rebounds. They also played tough defense and smart offense with a team stat of 14 steals and seven turnovers.

The Bulldogs played against the Quincy Jacks on Jan. 15 but results were unavailable at press time. On Friday Cashmere heads to Tonasket and will play at 6 p.m.
