Lions roll over Pioneers

The balanced scoring attack of the visiting West Linn Lions (17-5, 7-1 Three Rivers League) overwhelmed the host Oregon City Pioneers (4-17,1-7 TRL) in a 73-58 romp for the Lions. The Lions had four players in double figures with Mitch Cokely, senior guard, leading the way with 15 points. Anthony Mathis, freshman, chipped in 14 points also for the Lions, despite leaving the game at half time with an apparent head injury. A.J. Mayo, senior,  led all scorers with 22 points for Pioneers.

On Feb. 17 the Lions will travel to Clackamas High School to take on the Cavaliers,  this will mark the second to last game of the regular season.

“I expect a great game just like the last time we played them,” Ryan Shearmire, sophomore, said. “They’re a good team.”

The Lions defeated the Cavs back on Jan. 27, 51-43, at West Linn High School.

About the Contributor
Ben Jacobs, Co-Editor-in-Chief
“College baseball? I think about it every day but if it happens, it happens. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t,” Ben Jacobs, senior said. Jacobs has been playing baseball since he was just five years old. Whether it’s playing baseball, football, fishing or backpacking Jacobs is always busy doing what he loves. Besides being very intelligent he is also a quick worker and has a passion for writing. Those attributes and the fact that he loves sports make him a great co-editor in chief for the Amplifier. Jacobs joined the Amplifier after being inspired by his cousin, a journalist at ESPN. Jacobs also hopes to become an athletics journalist or broadcaster, blending his love of sports and passion for writing. He would love to attend University of Washington in Seattle, Wash. due to its journalism program and sports programs. Not only does Jacobs love school, but he loves his family too. He especially admires his grandfather, “because he always supports me through thick and thin. He is so easy to talk to we’ll be talking for hours and it will just feel like a few minutes. Also he loves sports as much as I do” Jacobs said. However, he is not fully aware of the extent of his family roots and he hopes to travel to Russia to fully understand his ties. To meet his goal of going to Washington University Jacobs is taking two AP classes: he also has sports practice every day after school. When taking a break from school he enjoys fishing and backpacking on the weekends with his brothers Max, seventh grade, and Sam a sophomore. “It’s a great way to relax from the stress of school and sports” he said. Hoping to achieve his goals, Jacobs has worked hard throughout his career in both school and sports. Look forward to seeing Ben Jacobs announce the big game someday.
