Playing for the first time in two weeks, Washington didn’t miss a beat in a home girls basketball win Friday over Timberland.

The Lady Jays had things rolling on both ends of the floor in a 75-26 victory in their home opener.

Washington (6-2) put up the 75 points despite having the running clock for the entire fourth quarter.

The Lady Jays scored more points in the first 37 seconds of the game (8) than Timberland did in the entire second half (6).

“We got a lot of points off our defense. We did nothing but defensive work over the Christmas break. That’s why I like to have off over the break, to work on things we aren’t very good at,” said Washington Head Coach Adam Fischer. “To hold any team to under 30 points is something we want to do every night. Obviously some teams are too good to do that against. Our offense came from our defense for most of the night.”

Washington never trailed, jumping to an 8-0 lead just 37 seconds into the game.

The Lady Jays continued their hot start and held a 27-13 advantage after one quarter.

The good times continued in the second quarter as Washington outscored Timberland, 15-7, to lead 42-20 at halftime.

The break at intermission did not cool down the Lady Jays as they owned a 23-4 advantage in the third quarter to increase their lead to 65-24.

Washington outscored Timberland 10-2 with a running clock in the final eight minutes.

Defensive pressure gave the Lady Jays plenty of offensive opportunities, which they capitalized on.

“When you make the game difficult for other teams, they play frustrated,” Fischer said. “I always tell the girls that we want teams not to want to play us again. I think that’s something we did a pretty good job of tonight.”

Courtney Kedroski led the way for Washington with 19 points on 7-10 shooting (5-6 from three-point range) to go with two steals. She nailed three three-pointers in the first 4:04 of the third quarter, which pushed the Lady Jays’ lead to 59-22.

Paige Carpenter filled the stat sheet with 13 points, six rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Kyra Hardesty finished with 12 points, nine in the first half, and three rebounds.

“It was hard for Courtney early in the season. She did a good job waiting for Paige and Kyra to help her with the scoring,” Fischer said. “Now that we have four or five girls producing every night, Courtney is starting to get her shot now. When she’s open, she doesn’t miss many.”

Rachel Kackley pitched in with nine points, 11 rebounds and three assists.

“Paige, Kyra and Courtney hit some outside shots all night, and that opened up the inside for Rachel,” Fischer said. “She missed a few easy ones early, but after that, she got settled down and put some easy ones in.”

Megan Freitag gave Washington a spark, scoring all nine of her points in the first half. She added three rebounds and two steals.

Megan Bauche scored seven points.

“Both of my Megans, Bauche and Freitag, probably play the hardest of any kid I’ve ever coached,” Fischer said. “They know what they’re best at and they do it every game.”

Jenna Haas scored four points. Katie Trigg had two points and two rebounds.

Alex Ready added three assists and two rebounds. Morgan Buddemeyer had two rebounds. Emma Boehmer had one assist and one rebound.

“It’s hard to guard us when we had the kind of balanced scoring as we did in this game,” Fischer said.

Timberland (2-8) was led by Maia Hopkins, who scored nine points. Sam Domalewski added eight points.

The Lady Jays shot 49 percent from the field (27-55), including 10-18 from three-point range. They were 11-14 from the free-throw line.

Timberland shot 25 percent from the field (11-44), including 3-17 from three-point range. The Wolves were 1-8 from the charity stripe.

Washington also won the junior varsity game over Timberland.

Washington is seeded sixth for next week’s Union Tournament, opening against third-seeded St. Charles West Tuesday, Jan. 14, at 7:15 p.m.

“We had seven games before Christmas and we’re looking at about 18 still ahead of us,” Fischer said. “It’s always good to get going again after Christmas. A 6-2 record is good for the girls. They were disappointed about one or two of our losses, but you learn from those mistakes and you keep moving on.”
