Girls basketball: Gall leads Hanford to win

December 14, 2013 

On a cold night at Falcon Gym, where both teams combined to shoot 28 percent from the floor, Hanford senior Colette Gall showed she could give her team enough of a spark to ignite a win.

The 5-foot-11 post led all scorers with 26 points and pulled down 14 rebounds as the Falcons recorded a 52-44 home win over Lake City (Idaho).

“She’s pretty good,” Hanford coach Evan Woodward said of Gall, who scored 13 of those points in the fourth quarter. “We weren’t quite as sharp as last night, but the team played well down the stretch tonight. It was a nice win for the group.”

Sydney Shintaffer added 11 points and seven rebounds for the Falcons.

Whitney Meier, Cierra Dvorak and Olivia Maryon provided most of the scoring punch for Lake City, combining for 37 of the Timberwolves’ 44 points. Dvorak and Maryon also combined for 23 rebounds.
