Rochester shot just 6 of 27 from the field in the loss.

Centralia Clips T-Birds Wings
TUMWATER — The Tigers blitzed past Tumwater from the tipoff here Thursday night and never looked back en route to a 47-36 Evergreen 2A Conference victory.
“Our whole goal was to stop the (Brooke) Hare and (Sierra) Snyder girls, and make other players hurt us. The girls just executed that game plan perfectly right from the get-go,” said Centralia coach Doug Ashmore.
Snyder was able to muster up a team-high 11 points for Tumwater, while Hare finished with 2 points.
Centralia’s zone defense gave the T-Birds fits all night as Tumwater shot only 4 of 24 from 3-point range and managed to earn just four free throw attempts.
The Tigers were paced by Ellie Corwin’s 20-point, 12-rebound performance, while Carissa Kaut added 9 points and 5-foot-3 Danika Jensen contributed 8 points and 10 rebounds.
“Rebounding was a highlight of the night. We had a big rebound advantage and that was key,” said Ashmore, whose team grabbed 36 rebounds compared to the T-Birds 21.
Ashmore noted that Corwin’s double-double effort included four offensive rebounds.
“She’s really been solid,” said Ashmore. “She’s working inside out and helping her teammates out by trying to get the ball to them too. She’s not a selfish player.”
Ashmore added that Hannah Porter was straw that stirred the Tigers’ drink on defense thanks to her attention to details and fundamentals.
“She’s not scoring right now but she is truly the leader of our defensive pressure up top,” said Ashmore. “She’s just kind of taken that roll on and is doing a great job with it.”
Centralia (10-6, 3-3 league) will play at Black Hills on Friday.
