Poor free-throw shooting hurts Hockinson girls in 44-41 loss to W.F. West

The Columbian

Hockinson hung tough with third-ranked W.F. West of Chehalis, but free-throw shooting prevented the upset for the Hawks in a 2A district first-round game, falling to the Bearcats 44-41 on Monday.

Hockinson went 1 for 8 from the line, including 0 for 5 in the first quarter as the Hawks dug themselves into an early hole.

“Free throws aren’t free,” Hockinson coach Damon Roche said. “We played them very well, very tough, rebund well against them. But ultimately too many unforced turnovers and shot 1 for 8 at the line. In big games, you got to hit free throws.”

Kylie Ritter led Hockinson with 15 points and five rebounds. Siena Brown added six points and seven rebounds, and Lauren Schadt and nine points and five rebounds.

Gracie Brammer, who averages 12 points a game, went scoreless for the Hawks.

Hockinson (12-8) will face Mark Morris in a loser-out game on Monday.
