Girls basketball: Tuesday, Dec. 18

TRI-CITY HERALDDecember 19, 2012 

Richland's offense came alive Tuesday at home against Eisenhower.

Britney Pringle and Hailey Turner each scored 18 points, leading five Bombers in double figures in an 84-36 victory over the Eisenhower Cadets.

Richland didn't take long to break open the game, leading 28-8 after one quarter and 52-17 at halftime.

"We came out and had good intensity," Richland coach Cindy McCoy said. "The girls were working really hard defensively. We did a lot of good things defensively. Anytime your defense is producing offense, that's always good. That's what we had tonight."

Kennedy Corrigan (15 points), Abby Duckworth (10) and Kayla Catone (10) also hit double digits for Richland. Turner grabbed 10 rebounds, and Pringle had five steals.

"It was an all-around effort," McCoy said. "We had people that did good things throughout, and it's kind of hard to pick one.

"Hailey Turner on the boards, she had some really nice rebounds, and our guards just really put a lot of pressure on their guards for them to turn the ball over. They were working really hard. They created a lot of opportunities for us."

Southridge 40, Pendleton 36: Shyler Sullivan went 5-for-6 from the free-throw line in the fourth quarter and finished with 12 points to lead the Suns to a road victory over the Buckaroos.

Southridge coach Scott Stiles was pleased that his players were able to regroup after a first quarter in which they missed 10 layins and made just one basket.

"We took care of the ball at the end," Stiles said. "We need to be in those situations.

"The Pendleton girls fought hard. With six seconds left, they had the ball bounce out of the rim twice, and we got the rebound."

Kaitlyn Wormington grabbed 10 rebounds for the Suns, who host Walla Walla on Friday and Kamiakin on Saturday.

"That's another huge step for us," Stiles said. "We'll do what we need to do. We don't want to take too many big bites of the apple. We need small ones right now."
