Ferocious defense and relentless rebounding helped the Camas High School girls basketball team defeat Hockinson by 42 points and Hudson’s Bay by 41.
“Defense leads to offense,” said sophomore guard Brenna Khaw. “Our goal is to shut the other team down.”
The Papermakers disposed of the Eagles 60-19 Thursday. Hudson’s Bay never got comfortable in the Camas warehouse. The Papermakers rolled to a 12-5 advantage in the first quarter. The Eagles cut the deficit to nine points by halftime, but then the Papermakers scored the first 13 points in the third quarter before the Eagles could get one back. Camas outscored Bay 23-5 in the third quarter and 15-1 in the fourth.
“We were defending better, and that led to a lot of transition baskets for us,” said head coach Chuck Knight. “When we get the ball in Brenna’s hands, she’s going to find players.”
Khaw utilized her size and quickness to get to loose balls and fire magnetic passes to Nikki Corbett, Sierra Brown and Lauren Neff. She also took the ball to the hoop when there was an opening, and finished the game with seven points, seven assists and five rebounds.
