CASTLE ROCK It was Thursday, not Friday the 13th, but it wasnt lucky for Ilwaco as the Rockets were hotter than the proverbial firecracker, exploding for a 74-58 Trico League victory over the league-leading Fishermen in Castle Rock. Karl Oman led Ilwaco with 27 points and Ryan Kukula added 13, Kyle Breckinridge 10, and Bobby Byrd eight.
Three Rockets, Will Dolan with 33 and Cale Johnson and Brad Williamson with 14 apiece, combined to outscore the Fishermen team by three points. Ilwaco is now 10-3 for the year and still atop the Trico League with a 6-1 mark, while Castle Rock improves to 2-5 in league play and is 5-8 on the year.
The Fishermen go to Kalama Tuesday, Jan. 18 for another Trico tilt.
