CBBN girls: Southridge holds on, beats Pasco

PASCO -- Heather Worley missed the Southridge girls' first meeting with Pasco lastmonth with an ankle injury.

The Suns senior looked forward to the rematch Saturday night at ChiawanaHigh.

"I knew this could be the last time I'd play Pasco," said Worley afterscoring a game-high 22 points in a 54-46 CBBN Columbia victory. "And I wasnot going to go out with an 'L' on my record. We were all determined to winthis one."

Southridge built an 18-point lead late in the third quarter, then withstooda fourth-quarter charge led by Danielle Walter, Pasco's Gonzaga-bound guardwho scored 12 of her 18 points in the final six minutes.

The Bulldogs closed to within 52-46 with 24 seconds left and had the ballwith a chance to cut further into the lead, but Worley stole an entry pass,was fouled and hit two free throws with 12.3 seconds to play.

The Suns survived thanks to their improvement at the foul line. After going6-of-15 in the first half, they made 17 of 21 free throws in the secondhalf.

"We hung on; that's the important part," Worley said. "But we need to getthat killer instinct to put a team away."

Suns coach Scott Stiles said his team got caught scoreboard watching afterit built a 38-20 lead on La'Quilla Upton's three-point play with 1:44 leftin the third.

"We stopped playing defense," said Stiles, whose team won its sixthstraight. "We knew that Danielle would push their team to get back into thegame. If we hope to take the next step, we have to play four quarters ofdefense."

Their effort through three quarters was stellar, holding Pasco to 17 percentshooting (8-of-45) before the Bulldogs went 9-for-18 in the fourth.

"We settled for some silly jump shots," said Pasco coach Aaron Barcot. "AndSouthridge has a great defense. Those four seniors know what they're doing.That speed and experience hits you, and when you have a young team like we are, you're going to have growing pains."

Upton had primary defensive duties on Walter and forced her into a 6-for-19shooting night while matching her 18 points. Jamie Lyons chipped in 10points, 10 rebounds and four assists.

Missy Everson added 10 points and 16 rebounds for Pasco -- her fifth straightgame with at least 12 boards.
