WHS blows by Bloomfield

It’s not how you start, but how you finish.

Washington (12-2) defeated Bloomfield (7-6) 75-54 despite a rough first quarter that put the Hatchets in a big hole early.

Coming off a disappointing 10-point defeat Saturday to Class 3A No. 1 Princeton and scoring machine Jackie Young, the No. 11 Hatchets came out with one of their worst quarters of the year. Bloomfield outscored Washington 24-13 and connected on four 3-pointers, led by Kaylee Moody with six points.

“We knew that Bloomfield was a very scrappy, feisty team that does a very good job with the dribble, drive and kick,” said Washington coach Gretchen Miles. “Any time there is daylight, they’re going to put that ball up. Unfortunately for us, they didn’t miss many shots as they put up 24 points in that first quarter.”

The second quarter, however, was a completely different story. Washington scored the first 13 points of the quarter to take a 26-24 lead with 4:18 to play before halftime. The Hatchets used a 9-0 run to take a 39-27 lead into halftime after outscoring the Cardinals 26-3 in the second quarter. Lupe Perez and Carrie Lane had six points a piece in the quarter.

“Anytime you call a timeout, it’s to stop the bleeding from what they were doing and you get a wake up call. This group is so competitive and they understand that they just weren’t playing well in that first quarter. We had unforced turnovers, we weren’t attacking the basket and I think when we made the adjustment of putting Ally (Hunsinger) out top with the two guard front against that 1-3-1 zone and she was able to see over the top better to be able to reverse the ball and get it inside and be able to penetrate the gaps. In that first half of play she had seven assists.”
