By The Chronicle
W.F. West’s defense was too much for Black Hills in Chehalis on Tuesday, as the Bearcats won 70-38 in a matchup of the Evergreen 2A Conference’s two preseason girls hoops favorites.
The game was also a rematch of last year’s third-place State 2A tournament contest, which W.F. West won 51-50.
W.F. West was led by the double-double of Erika Brumfield with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Annika Warring and Julia Johnson each scored 12 points.
Black Hills couldn’t find its shot against W.F. West, hitting just 3 of 19 from behind the arc and shooting just 34 percent from the field overall. The Bearcats, meanwhile, made 49 percent of their shots.
The Bearcats also won the war on the glass, outrebounding Black Hills 33-11 — including 19 offensive rebounds for W.F. West.
W.F. West’s defense dominated the first quarter en route to a 21-4 lead. The Bearcats expanded their lead to 38-12 at halftime. It was much of the same in the second half, as the Bearcats outscored the Wolves 32-26.
W.F. West (8-1, 1-0 league) hosts Rochester on Thursday in a EvCo game.

Tigers Pick Up the Pressure to Drop Rochester
Centralia got a big boost from a pair of reserves in the second half and rolled past Rochester, 54-29, on Tuesday night in Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball action in the Hub City.
The Tigers led 18-16 at halftime, but brought Makayla Erickson and Kylie Sharp off the bench in the second half to play in the top portion of their full-court press.
“Those two got a couple steals, and the next thing you know we’re up 7, and the other kids kind of relaxed,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said. “The next thing you know we had a nice lead, and it was all because of those two girls up front in our press creating havoc.”
The Tigers outscored Rochester 36-13 after halftime. Hannah Porter led Centralia with 14 points, Carissa Kaut added 13 and Rachel Wilkerson scored 7 with nine rebounds.
Kennedy Strophy played well inside with starting forward Ellie Corwin in foul trouble, Ashmore added, holding Rochester’s Paige Winters to 12 points.
“That was just a key for us,” Ashmore said, “because (Winters) is just a force inside.”
Lexi Jones-Sederberg added 7 points for Rochester, though the Warriors shot just 11 of 56 (20 percent) from the field.
Centralia (8-3, 1-0 league) plays at Tumwater on Thursday. Rochester (3-7, 0-1 league) plays at W.F. West on Thursday night in the late game of a boys-girls doubleheader.

The Beavers led 14-12 after the first quarter, but Hoquiam bounced back and outscored Tenino 20-6 in the second quarter to take a 32-20 lead at halftime.
