At Hood River, Hermiston overcame a sloppy first half in Hood River and defeated the Eagles 77-74 on Friday night.

“We’ll take the win on the road,” head coach Casey Arstein said. “It was a good team effort.”

Junior Ryne Andreason led the Bulldogs (7-9 overall, 2-0 CRC) with 17 points. Sophomore Andrew Earl followed with 15. Junior Cesar Ortiz ended the night with 14, and Ramirez pitched in 12.

The Eagles (5-12, 0-2) opened the game with a 17-10 lead behind one of their top scorers of the night, senior Jonah Tactay — who had six points in the first quarter, and finished with 12 behind junior Carson Flores (18).

Hermiston began to turn things around in the second quarter, scoring 22 points to cut its deficit to 33-32 at the break.

Hood River came out and knocked down 25 third-quarter points, but the Bulldogs responded with 29 of their own in the fourth quarter to take and hold their lead.

The Bulldogs returned home Tuesday to host the Pendleton Buckaroos. Results of the game were not available at press time.
