Hermiston girls size up Hanford in road win

By the Tri-City HeraldDecember 10, 2013 

McKenzie Byrd and Jansen Edmiston combined for 33 points to lead the Hermiston Bulldogs to a 60-52 win over the host Hanford Falcons in a nonleague matchup Tuesday.

Hermiston used its height advantage to get second-chance buckets while Edmiston and Byrd punished Hanford from outside.

“They got a few more attempts than we did. They outrebounded us 41-21. That’ll win some games,” Falcons coach Evan Woodward said. “They were slightly better than we were tonight.”

Hanford led 17-10 after one quarter before the Bulldogs outscored the Falcons 50-35 the rest of the way. Colette Gall paced Hanford with 19 points and seven rebounds.

Byrd added 11 rebounds for Post Falls.
