Bailey Cartwright scored 16 points and Delaney Hodgins 15 to lead the Chiawana Riverhawks to a 64-27 win over the visiting Pasco Bulldogs on Saturday to remain unbeaten in the Mid-Columbia Conference.

Hodgins also provided a healthy dose of defense, limiting Pasco leading scorer Sierra Perez to two points — duplicating her effort against Southridge’s top scorer the previous night.

“She wants to prove to everybody she can do that,” said Chiawana coach Steve Davis. “When you’re 6-foot, long and move well, it’s really nice.”

The Riverhawks jumped out to a 20-6 lead but didn’t put the game away until outscoring the Bulldogs 20-1 in the third period.

Jay Martinez scored 10 points to lead Pasco, still searching for its first league win.

“Hanford played a tough first half. They were beating us, but we turned up the dial in the third quarter,” Kamiakin coach Lane Schumacher said.

Colette Gall led Hanford with 20 points.

“She’s really hard to defend,” Schumacher said. “She grabs rebounds and makes free throws when you foul her. I was glad we were able to come away with the win.”
