Chiawana girls basketball falls to Central Valley

By the Tri-City HeraldDecember 2, 2012 

The Chiawana girls basketball team did a fantastic job guarding Central Valley’s dangerous players on the wing.

In the end it was Madison Hovren, the Bears’ sophomore post, who did most of the damage, scoring a game-high 29 points to lift CV to a 67-57 nonleague win over Chiawana on Saturday in Pasco.

Hovren hit 10-of-18 shots from the field and 9-of-11 from the free throw line. She also kicked in four steals.

The Riverhawks got off to a good start in the first quarter, taking an 18-12 lead. But the Bears began to climb back into it in the next quarter, outscoring Chiawana 10-4 in the second frame to tie the score at 22 at the half.

Delaney Hodgins led the Riverhawks with 16 points, but the sharpshooting junior guard hit just 3-of-16 from the field. Her sister, Braydey, finished with 13 points. Both hit three shots from behind the 3-point arc.

Shooting percentage told the story for the game. Central Valley shot nearly 50 percent (23-for-48) while Chiawana hit under 29 percent (14-for-49) for the game despite hitting eight 3-pointers.
