Hatchets defeat Evansville Memorial

The Washington girls basketball team defeated Evansville Memorial 69-63 Saturday behind a balanced scoring attack to improve its record to 5-1 this season. Washington ran out to a 13-0 lead and led 16-5 after the first quarter. Memorial bounced back by outscoring the Hatchets 21-12 in the second quarter to trail 28-26 at halftime. In the second half, the Tigers used a full court press to put Washington back on its heels, but the Hatchet guards were able to find easy baskets from their teammates in transition.

“Evansville Memorial is a very good and young basketball team,” said Washington coach Gretchen Miles. “We did not handle their pressure very well in the first half of play. If we were able to attack their full court pressure, we had the opportunity to get lay-ups and we were fortunate that happened. Jenna (Johnson) did a fantastic job of attacking their pressure and going towards the basket, where she then found her teammates to get the lay-ups. Her ability to take care of,the basketball for us was very important in getting the win.”

Washington was led by Cheyenne Jones with 19 points and 11 rebounds, while Ally Hunsinger added 18 points and seven rebounds. Lupe Perez had 14 points and five assists, Audra Stallman added eight points and five assists, Johnson added seven points and six assists and Emily Mahan had three points.

“Cheyenne (Jones) had a great day of finishing around the basket and rebounding for us,” Miles said. “It was also positive to see when Memorial took the lead in the fourth quarter, we had our senior leadership and experience kick in to make big plays. Lupe and Ally hit crucial 3s down the stretch and Audra came up some huge boards. We had 20 team assists today, which is always a great stat that shows how well this group shares the basketball.”

The junior varsity lost 30-27. Izzy Waggoner led all scorers with 13 points.
