Tuesday’s 2A Girls Basketball: Bearcats Explode to Beat Rochester

By The Chronicle

ROCHESTER — The Warriors had the Bearcats right where they wanted them at halftime. The third and fourth quarters, however, were a different story.

W.F. West outscored Rochester 33-10 in the second half here Tuesday night, rallying back from a halftime deficit for a 52-30 Evergreen 2A Conference girls basketball win.

Drea Brumfield led W.F. West with 11 points and Taya McCallum chipped in 10 for the winners.

The Warriors came out fired up on senior night, according to coach Davina Serdahl. Rochester led 20-19 at the break.

“We came out with a lot of energy and really talked about that in the locker room at halftime — that we’ve got to maintain that,” Serdahl said. “They’re Chehalis. They’re going to come out and take a lead, and that’s what they did in the second half.”

Paige Winter scored 19 points with seven rebounds to pace the Warriors.

“Paige just carried us through tonight,” Serdahl said. “She really had a great game. I’m proud of her.”

Lexie Jones-Sederberg added 13 rebounds for Rochester.

Rochester (10-7, 3-4 league) plays at Tumwater on Thursday. W.F. West (13-4, 6-1 league) hosts Aberdeen on Thursday.

Thunderbirds Overpower Tigers

Tumwater shot a scorching 63 percent from the field to win their fourth in a row with a 68-35 drubbing of Centralia here Tuesday.

Aubrey Amendala scored a game-high 18 points for the Thunderbirds, who had three players in double-digit scoring. Natalie Sumrok scored 15 and Olivia Bailon added 12 as Tumwater won its fourth in a row.

Centralia extended its losing skid to four games. The Tigers were led by do-it-all senior Carissa Kaut, who scored a team-high 13 points and seven rebounds. Jasmine Mora added seven points, Madelinn Corwin six, Jayden Hawley five and Kylie Sharp three.

“She does her stuff night in and night out,” Centralia coach Doug Ashmore said. “She did a great job.”

Ashmore also praised Mora for her all-around effort on the night. She also contributed five steals and three assists.

“Impressed with Jasmine,” Ashmore said. “Everybody that took the floor stepped up tonight.”

Tumwater’s (16-1, 6-1) offensive firepower was too much for the Tigers as they hit 27 of 53 shots for 63 percent, including 7 of 9 free throws. The Tigers didn’t shoot all that bad, hitting 14 of 32 shots for 44 percent. But they only got to the free throw line twice, hitting 2 of 4 from the charity stripe.

“Tumwater played well,” Ashmore said. “I can’t take away our effort. We gotta keep pushing forward.”

Centralia fell to 4-13, 1-6 and travels to Black Hills on Thursday.
