By The Chronicle

The Bearcats led 36-5 after a quarter, then added 25 in the second frame to ensure the clock was running in the second half.
Julia Johnson led W.F. West with 16 points. Kiara Steen scored 15, going 2 of 3 from long range with seven assists and five steals, and Taya McCallum scored 14 and hit 3 of 5 from long range.
Annika Warring added 11 points, and Erika Brumfield chipped in 10 with six rebounds.
The Bearcats shot 9 of 22 from long range and outrebounded Aberdeen 24-9, with 19 steals.
Raegan Glanz led Aberdeen with 9 points.

Cold Spell Doomes Warriors Against Tumwater
ROCHESTER — The Warriors went a bit cold in the middle quarters and Tumwater took advantage to pick up a 49-45 Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball win here Wednesday night.
Lexi Jones-Sederberg scored 16 points, Paige Winter added 14 and Hunter Hahn scored 7 of her 10 points in the first quarter for Rochester, but Tumwater won the second and third quarters by a combined score of 22-15.
“In those middle quarters we got fouled a lot, and it’s kind of one of those deals where it’s hard to get into a rhythm,” Rochester coach A.J. Easley said. “It’s just kind of a weird funk, and there was a stretch there for three or four minutes where we didn’t execute, and we allowed some shooters to come open.”
Maddie Fields led Tumwater with 14 points, and Sophia Koelsch chipped in 13.
The Warriors missed a pair of free throws with six seconds left in the game that could have shifted the outcome.
“They gave themselves a chance,” Easley said. “We’ve just got to finish.”
Emily Elkins added 5 points and 12 rebounds and played well defensively, Easley noted.
Rochester (4-9, 0-3 league) plays at Aberdeen on Friday.

Wolves Overwhelm Tigers Early
TUMWATER — Black Hills barely gave the Tigers an inch in the first half, running out to a 30-10 halftime lead in a 50-31 Evergreen 2A Conference girls hoops win here Wednesday night.
“They brought a lot of pressure to us. At times we would handle it, but we were mass confused, as a unit, with what they were in,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said. “We just had trouble getting into things, and credit Black Hills for that. They really did a number on us in that first half.”
Megan River led Black Hills with 17 points, and Lindsey Nurmi added 10.
Carissa Kaut led Centralia with 13 points, and Ellie Corwin scored 7 with eight rebounds.
“I thought our girls did a great job of battling back,” Ashmore said. “We’ve just got to get back to work and be able to handle that pressure.”
Centralia (9-4, 2-1 league) plays at W.F. West on Friday in the first game of a girls-boys doubleheader, starting at 5:30 p.m.
