Girls basketball: Gall's big fourth quarter leads Hanford past Southridge

December 13, 2013 

Colette Gall sank seven free throws in the fourth quarter and scored 23 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead Hanford to a 47-45 victory over host Southridge in the Mid-Columbia Conference openers for both teams.

“It was an up-and-down game,” Hanford coach Evan Woodward said. “Gall stepped up in the fourth quarter. My bench kids had some big rebounds. It was a good team effort. Not always pretty, but it was effective.”

Shyler Sullivan poured in 28 points for the Suns. Southridge coach Scott Stiles credited sophomore post Ariana Mckenzie with some strong defense off the bench against Gall, who had just 10 points after three quarters.
