Girls basketball roundup: Chiawana too much for Southridge

January 4, 2013 

The Chiawana girls basketball team spread the ball around Friday while rolling past Southridge 59-27 in a Mid-Columbia Conference game in Pasco.

Chiawana had six players score at least seven points in the easy victory.

“I told the girls, when we score 59 points and everyone is right around eight or nine points, I love it,” Chiawana coach Steve Davis said. “That’s what we did.”

Bianca Gonzales led the way with a game-high 10 points, while Delaney Hodgins and Sierra Perez each added nine points. Jennifer Gonzales and Bailey Cartwright finished with seven points each.

The victory moves Chiawana over .500 on the season.

“Defensively we did our jobs,” Davis said. “We try to take a couple of kids away from their offense, and holding them to 27 — 12 of which came from the free-throw line — is great.”

Emma Sanders’ eight points led Southridge.
