PENDLETON,Ore.– Mannahouse made things difficult for the Regis Boys basketball team, catching the Rams off-guard in the 2A fourth/sixth-pace game Saturday morning. Thanks to a strong second quarter, the Lions were able to set the tone in an otherwise relatively close game, using the 20-9 quarter to help them takedown Regis 67-54 in the final game of the season for both teams.
It was a painful to end the season for sure, Isaiah Koehnke led the way with 17 points and Diego Aguilar scored 15 points in his final game of the season as those returning like a Koehnke, a Noah Koenig and a Roman Gould, it does re-light the fire underneath them as they hope to make it back out to Pendleton next season.
“They came out strong and we didn’t come out as strong, can’t win them all,” Noah Koenig said of the game. “There’s going to definitely be a fire lit. Next year we’re going to come back and compete and hopefully we’ll get the Title. (This weekend) taught us how to play as a team and wins-and-losses, you gotta stick together. It’s a big part of our team, we’re not one person that does everything, we’re a team and that’s what these last three days showed.”
Regis finished the season 21-10 and 11-4 in Tri-River Conference play.
