Wolves Fend Off Eagles on Senior Night


TUMWATER — Black Hills overcame a sluggish start offensively to hold off visiting Elma for a 45-30, non-league victory on senior night Monday.

Freshman point guard Kiley McMahon paced the Wolves with a team-high 14 points and four steals to go with four rebounds.

Payton Childers and Madison Parker each added nine points for the Wolves, with Childers hauling in 10 boards and Parker bringing in seven rebounds and swiping four steals. Ava Klovas tallied seven points and seven rebounds.

Black Hills took a while to get going offensively, trailing the Eagles 7-4 after one quarter. But once the Wolves settled in, they started humming. Black Hills ripped off a 17-7 run to end the first half, taking a 21-14 advantage heading into the locker room.

After increasing their lead by two in the third quarter, the Wolves held the Eagles scoreless in the final frame to secure the 15-point victory.

Black Hills (6-8, 3-4 EvCo) has now won two in a row and will continue league play when it travels to Centralia on Wednesday.
