Boys basketball: North Bend takes fourth place away from Sutherlin

CORVALLIS — The Sutherlin High boys basketball team didn’t see the best of the North Bend Bulldogs when it handed them their first Far West League loss in three years a month ago.

A more accurate version of the brown Bulldogs certainly showed itself with fourth place on the line Friday at the OSAA Class 4A state tournament.

Hayden Davisson scored 15 points and Hamilton Mateski had 13 points and seven rebounds to lead North Bend to a 57-44 win over Sutherlin at Gill Coliseum.

North Bend took control early, claiming a 20-12 lead after one quarter and a 33-19 lead by halftime thanks to an offense that shot 50 percent (15-for-30) from the field and a defense that held Sutherlin to 31.8 percent (7-for-22).

The fourth-place trophy was North Bend’s first since another fourth-place finish in 1942. The brown Bulldogs (22-3) — whose only FWL loss was that 67-47 decision at Sutherlin — hadn’t won a state tournament game since 1959 before Wednesday.

Sutherlin finished with a 20-9 record. The blue Bulldogs were led by Cameron Mock’s 11 points and Derrik Wattman’s 10 points and six rebounds.

Taler Jensen was held to five points on 2-for-8 shooting one game after putting up 39 points to keep the blue Bulldogs alive against Gladstone.

Sutherlin never led, and North Bend went up by as many as 20 points in the fourth quarter. North Bend held a 38-18 edge in the paint and a 10-0 edge in fast-break points.

Sutherlin’s sixth-place finish was its best since taking fourth in 2006. The Bulldogs will lose seven seniors: Jensen, Mock, Wattman, Austin Hoobler, Nicolas Brewer, Ryan Eakin and Michael Matteo.

North Valley, which defeated Sutherlin in the quarterfinal round, won the state championship game against Cascade, 64-50.
