By The Chronicle

ABERDEEN — W.F. West dominated the first half against Aberdeen en route to a 84-26 win in an Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball game here on Friday.

The win clinches the EvCo title for the Bearcats, their first league championship since the 2014-15 season. W.F. West lost in the state title game to Mark Morris that season.

Erika Brumfield recorded a double-double with 20 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. Julia Johnson scored 14 points and had three steals. Annika Waring and Maggie Vadala each added 13 points.

The Bearcats shot 53 percent from the field and made more shots (36) than Aberdeen attempted (29). W.F. West outrebounded Aberdeen 34-7, including 18 offensive rebounds.

W.F. West led 29-8 after the first quarter and kept the foot on the gas in the second quarter to lead 61-12 at halftime.

W.F. West (16-2, 8-0 league) hosts Tumwater on Tuesday in an EvCo game.

 

Black Hills Runs Past Centralia 61-24

Maisy Williams looked sharp in her second game of the season, and Black Hills dispatched of Centralia, 61-24, on Friday in Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball action in the Hub City.

Williams, a 6-foot junior forward and All-League pick last year, missed the first 16 games of the season with an injury, and played sparingly in the Wolves’ win over Aberdeen on Wednesday. She scored 14 on Friday in Centralia.

“She doesn’t even look like she’s missed a beat,” Tiger coach Doug Ashmore said. “She’s so athletic, and it adds another piece to their puzzle. They looked really good tonight.”

Lindsey Nurmi led the Wolves with 18 points, and Black Hills led 33-8 at halftime.

“We just couldn’t do anything offensively against them. They’re so big, long, lengthy and fast,” Ashmore said. “We didn’t turn the ball over a bunch of times, we just didn’t hit a lot of shots and didn’t get a whole lot of shots.”

Ellie Corwin led Centralia with 11 points and added seven rebounds.

“I thought Ellie did a great job, once again, battling inside against their tall kids,” Ashmore said.

Centralia (12-6, 5-3 league) plays at Aberdeen on Tuesday.

Note: Tumwater beat Rochester, 54-34, in Friday’s other EvCo game. Sophia Koelsch led the Thunderbirds with 21 points. Rochester (5-13, 1-7 league) hosts Black Hills on Tuesday.
