Washington runs past Arrows in home opener

It wasn’t pretty, but the Washington girls basketball team earned its second win of the season.

The Hatchets (2-1) defeated Sullivan (1-0) 74-39 Friday night at the Hatchet House in the home opener behind a balanced offensive attack featuring front court dominance from Audra Stallman and Cheyenne Jones.

Midway through the first quarter, Sullivan held a slim 5-4 lead when Arrows’ coach Julie Meeks took a timeout. Out of the timeout, Washington outscored Sullivan 10-4 in the final 4:10 of the quarter to hold a 15-8 lead after eight minutes. Stallman led all scorers with six points in the first quarter including back-to-back layups to push the lead to seven.

“Our decision-making and the action of what we wanted to do just wasn’t there,” said Washington coach Gretchen Miles. “We had the right intention of where we wanted to go, which is inside, just the way we picked our angles wasn’t the best at the beginning. Give our guards and post players credit, they just kept working and fighting. The big change for us was Ally (Hunsinger) was being able to see over the defense from the perimeter to get the ball inside to score.”

Washington flexed its muscles while outscoring Sullivan 21-12 in the second quarter, despite the Arrows’ connecting on four 3-pointers. Jones and sophomore point guard Jenna Johnson each scored five points in the quarter to give the Hatchets a 36-20 halftime lead.

In the second half, things didn’t get any easier for Sullivan. Senior guard Lupe Perez scored 10 of her 14 points in the third quarter as the Hatchets outscored the Arrows 22-13. Stallman scored five more points and Jones was 3-for-4 from the foul line. Leading 68-33 after three quarters, Miles was able to get her starters some rest in what was a total team effort. Nine different Hatchets made a basket.
