ILWACO — Ilwaco led 32-2 after a quarter on the way to a 72-10 victory over North Beach Wednesday, December 19.
The Lady Fishermen went with a full-court press that produced a streak of steals on or shortly after the inbounds pass, allowing them to run away with the game early on. Sunny Kemmer converted a three-point play on a fast break, then got a steal right after the inbound, drew the foul and hit both free throws for an early 12-0 lead.
