CASHMERE — Erica Spanjer converted a putback to give the No. 2 Cashmere girls basketball team a 14-point lead with seven minutes remaining in Friday’s contest against No. 8 Cashmere at Ron Doane Gymnasium.
It might have seemed to most spectators at that time that undefeated Cashmere was well on its way to another easy victory, but neither Cashmere coach Chris Cloakey or Okanogan coach Bryan Boesel thought that was the case at all. Both men have been around the game for years, and they both know that basketball is a game of momentum-shifting runs. Boesel figured that his team had one more run left in it at that point; the only question was, would it be enough?
