3-point barrage not enough to secure win for Butte Falls

BUTTE FALLS -- It's not often a coach says a loss is good for their team, but that's exactly what Butte Falls boys basketball coach Mike Harrington thought after his Loggers were clipped by North Lake 67-66 in Sky A Southern Division action on Friday.

In their defeat, the Loggers (9-2, 15-6 Sky A) unleashed a new weapon as they gear-up for district play -- the 3-point shot.

Butte Falls shot 80 percent from behind the 3-point stripe, including Terril Earl's 5-of-7 effort. Earl finished the game with 17 points.

This was our most prolific 3-point night of the year, said Harrington. We showed a weapon we haven't used a lot.

The Loggers, who lost to North Lake by 32 points in an earlier meeting, jumped out to a 39-32 halftime advantage before North Lake scored the first seven points of the third quarter and gradually reeled the Loggers in.

We went a little cold and they took advantage, said Harrington. It was an emotional and intense game.

Bryan Wright led North Lake, which clinched the Southern Division title, with 24 points.

Danny Krenwinkel led Butte Falls with 25 points and five rebounds.
