By The Chronicle
Centralia’s Ellie Corwin scored 20 points to lead all scorers and help the Tigers earn a 59-17 over Eatonville in a nonleague girls basketball game in Centralia on Wednesday.
Carissa Kaut recorded 13 points and Rachel Wilkerson added 10 points and seven rebounds.
Eatonville shot 4 of 33 from the field while the Tigers made 23 shots.
“I thought we came out and defensively, we played well. Offensively, I liked the aggressiveness. Last year, we shot a lot of threes and we’re trying to drive more. We only shot four 3’s the whole game,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said. “The aggressiveness of our girls and kicking out to a short jump shot, I was happy for our first time out. Our bench did a good job playing good minutes for us this year. They got their first varsity time and did a great job for us.”
Centralia led 12-3 after the first quarter and pushed the lead to 26-8 at halftime. The Tigers had a big third quarter, scoring 22 points to seal the victory.
Centralia (1-0) travels to face River Ridge at St. Martin’s University on Friday in a nonleague game.
