The Fairfield eighth grade girl’s basketball team started off its season Monday against Washington.

The A team won 32 -10 in the evening’s initial game. After a 19-6 lead at halftime, both teams struggled to score in the third quarter. At the end of the third it was 22 - 8. Nicole Buch led all scorers with 14 points. Ashtyn Drish added in nine points, Taylor Myers scored four, and both Kristen Daugherty and Alie Kensett chipped in two points.

“It was nice to get our first game under our belt,” Fairfield coach Derek Philips said. “We played really fast, which led to some quick points, but also made us turn the ball over too much. Overall it was a good start for us.”

In the B game the Trojans road a 17-2 halftime lead to a 33-5 victory. Lynsey Finney and Ashley Pool both had 12 points, while Abbey Gridley scored five.

“These girls really played well tonight,” Philips said. “They were aggressive and played hard.”

In the C game, Fairfield picked up another win by the score of 8-4. Yasmine Fear had six points and Hollie Nelson scored two.

The girls play at Ottumwa-Evans today at 4:30 p.m.
