OLYMPIA — Even playing short-handed, Aberdeen’s girls never missed a beat on Friday.
Emily Fisher scored 21 points as the Bobcats registered their second consecutive Evergreen 2A Conference victory, 50-38, at Olympia.
The Bobcats (2-4, 6-6) were without starters Ericka Manwell (concussion) and Tiana Blackburn (family considerations).
But they scored the game’s opening eight points and never looked back.
Aberdeen led 25-13 at the half and retained a double-digit advantage for the remainder of the contest.
Fisher added 10 rebounds and six steals. Kiana Dixon added 12 points and eight rebounds, while Alexxi Timmons contributed eight points.
“We played really well, shared the ball,” Aberdeen coach Aaron Roiko said. “This was a whole team effort. The three seniors (Fisher, Dixon and Timmons) took over the game.”
The Bobcats make the short trip to Hoquiam for a non-league contest tonight before challenging state-ranked Black Hills at home on Tuesday.
