The Chewelah girls basketball team used a 13-0 run in the third quarter to surge past the Deer Park Lady Stags 47-20 on Tuesday.
Leading 18-15 at halftime, the Lady Cougars (1-2) used their strength underneath the basket to pull away from the Lady Stags (0-3), who were held to only one field goal in the third quarter, an offensive rebound by Siera English with 40 seconds left in the quarter.
Kara Fredrick, who finished with a game-high 14 points, keyed Chewelah's second half explosion with her outside shooting. Fredrick's third 3-pointer of the game gave the Lady Cougars a 29-15 lead midway through the third quarter. Shayla Hartill's offensive rebound bucket a few seconds later boosted the Chewelah lead to 31-15.
Deer Park managed only one basket in the fourth quarter. Again, it was English who supplied the offense with a layup with 2 minutes to play.
English, making her varsity debut this season, finished with a team-high 8 points.
Deer Park will try to get into the win column for the first time this season when the Lady Stags entertain Lakeside at 5:30 p.m. on Friday.
