Lady Lions - Defeat Hanford 64-42

KENNEWICK 64, HANFORD 42: Freshman point guard Aislin Fiander scored a game-high 25 points to lead the Lions to a rout on their home court in MCC play

“(Fiander) played very well tonight and was good about getting the ball out to other people” Kennewick coach Ashley Williams said. “She worked well out of our press — we pressed a lot tonight.”

While Fiander led Kennewick (3-2, 1-1) on the scoring end, it was the Lions’ defensive effort that allowed them to pull away from Hanford (2-4, 0-2). Hailey Quast and Maya Thornton had six steals apiece as the Falcons scored just six points in the third quarter and seven in the fourth.
