CBBN girls: Sorensen, Southridge stuns Hanford

RICHLAND -- Southridge took a huge step toward qualifying for the playoffs Saturday, defeating Hanford 46-39 on the road in CBBN 3A play.

The Suns moved into a tie for fifth place with Pasco with the victory. Pasco defeated Southridge on Friday.

The top six teams in CBBN 3A advance and the victory helped the Suns open up a one-game lead on Kennewick with three games to play.

Paige Sorensen had 12 points and six rebounds to lead Southridge.

The loss sends Hanford out of third place, a half-game behind West Valley.

"We were disappointed with the effort we put out there tonight," Hanford coach Evan Woodward said. "Give Southridge credit -- they came into our house and beat us. You always like to win on the road and they certainly did."

Colette Gall led the Falcons with 13 points.

West Valley 64, Pasco 28

One night after a big performance in a win over Southridge, Pasco fell back to earth and then some, falling behind 22-11 after the first quarter and losing ground the rest of the way in a CBBN 3A home loss.

"We played like, 'Wake us up when it's Feb. 8,' " said Bulldogs coach Aaron Barcot, referring to the week of the district tournament.

Pasco hit just 9 of 46 shots (20 percent). Still, the Bulldogs had one offensive highlight as Yessica Diaz scored 19 points -- more than two-thirds of her team's output -- on 50 percent shooting.

"Yessica Diaz is a heck of a ballplayer," Barcot said. "She was double- and triple-teamed all night and still put up 19."
