AMITY, Ore.– It was almost as easy as you wanted it. The defense got the rebounds and steals that transitioned into points.
And there was no lay off entering the second half behind Keeley Graham and Hannah Hatch continuing their mojo shooting as they held a 57-27 lead at the 7:27 mark of the fourth quarter.
“It’s been something we’ve been working really, really hard on and I’m really proud of my team for being able to come out hot,” said Hannah Hatch. “We’ve had some really good team basketball, we’ve had a lot of good passes, we’ve had a lot of good shooting. It really boils down to teamwork and I’m really proud of that and I feel really happy and accomplished by that.”
Hatch finished with 13 points and three three-pointers, Graham had a game-high 23. Allysa Plummer had seven and Kaia Rosenbaum added another six as nine Warriors scored in Tuesday’s game as Amity picked up their seventh win of the season.
With a few days off before they travel to Warrenton, who are coming off their first loss of the season to Salem Academy Thursday, will be looking to bounce back strong versus Rainier and Amity to get back on track.
“We’re just going to keep the momentum going and we’re going to take every win as it comes and we’re going to use it to motivate us. Even with the loses we’re going to learn from them and put them on the shelve and move the momentum forward,” said Hatch.
Tip-off for Friday’s game is at 6:30pm.
