Warrenton's Dalton Knight had the hot hand, but Clatskanie managed to overcome the Warriors' shooting machine to score a 65-51 win over visiting Warrenton, in a Coastal Range League boys basketball game Wednesday.

Knight hit five 3-pointers in the first half, then connected on two more in the second on his way to a team-high 23 points.

But Clatskanie countered with solid inside play and a tough defense.

Knight's fourth trey of the night, in the opening seconds of the second period, tied the game at 18-18.

The Tigers answered with an 11-4 run, and did not trail again.

Clatskanie's Dawson Evenson hit short back-to-back jumpers for a 40-29 lead midway through the third quarter, then highlighted the period with a nearly 35-foot shot at the buzzer for a 51-36 advantage.
