WHITE SALMON - The Lady Fishermen out-scored White Salmon 35-12 in the middle two quarters on their way to a lop-sided 47-30 victory over the winless Lady Bruins Friday. Coach Ned Bittner said, "It was a typical slow start after a four-hour bus ride. We missed a lot of easy shots before we settled in and started playing our game. Our defense was really solid and we rebounded well."
Anna Kitzman scored 19 points to lead all scorers and added six rebounds, five steals and four assists as the talented senior guard ignited Ilwaco. Lanie Kary scored eight points and grabbed nine rebounds and Melany Bliss chipped in nine points and eight boards for the winners. Bonnie Perez's six points, three from Alexa Moses and two from Allison Brooks, rounded out the Lady Fishermen scoring.
The victory boosted Ilwaco to 2-0 in the young Trico-League season and a share of first place with Castle Rock. The Lady Fishermen are 6-2 overall. There was no JV game.
