The Hundred Hornets' Mahalah Britton secured a double-double,14 points and 15 rebounds, in a little over two periods to lead her team to their third victory in their last four games, 47-30, over Morgantown Christian. The girls basketball action happened Jan. 3 inside a well-paced Hundred crowd.

It took the better part of two minutes in the first period before the Hornets' Addie Tuttle was guilty of pick-pocketing a Morgantown opponent and going the distance for the game's first basket. The Mustangs' Megan Becker quickly answered with a short jumper to even things up.

However, Katherine Henderson also pick-pocketed a defender and went the distance to give Hundred the lead for good. She later sank 2-2 from the free throw line before Britton put back her first of five rebound putbacks in the first half, pushing the lead to 8-2.

Henderson intercepted another Morgantown pass and went the distance, while Britton closed out the Hornets' first quarter with a deuce. Becker swished her second bucket in the period to close out the first stanza with Hundred leading, 12-4.

Brooke Yoho swished a pair of free throws to open the second period, but Morgantown's Cara Wolfe matched it with a deuce. However, the Morgantown Head Coach received a technical foul, and Henderson would sink both. The Hornets' Britton scored Hundred's next three baskets, while Henderson followed a Mustang deuce for the Hornets' final points of the period, off another steal.

The Hornets lost Britton to an injury, and Morgantown answered by swishing 3-8 to end the first half scoring with the home team in front, 24-11.

Rachel Snedden raced coast-to-coast for her first bucket to open the second half, but just as quick, the Mustangs answered with a two-pointer of their own.

Yoho scored two straight baskets before the Mustangs scored, but Henderson brought down the house with a nifty Kareem-Abdul-JaBar sky-hook. Henderson would follow that up with a pretty full court pass to Kayla Davis that, again, had the Hundred student body on their feet after the bucket.

Morgantown followed with a pair of free throws before the Hornets' Emily Metz scored the last three baskets, that included a bonus bomb, to end the third period with Hundred leading, 41-19.

Britton had a double-double, with 14 points and 15 rebounds, with eight coming off the offensive board. She also filled the stat sheet with five blocks and four steals. Henderson also scored 14-points, while adding eight rebounds, five assists and four steals.

In addition, Yoho tallied six markers, while Metz netted five points, including a basket from beyond the arch. Snedden added four points and made three steals, while Tuttle and Davis each sank a deuce for all the Hundred scoring.

After the break, the Hornets tallied 13 markers in the third, while the visitors tallied six points. In the final period, Hundred netted only six points, but their defense held East Richland to only a bucket.

Mahalah Britton led the way offensively with 18-points, while Katherine Henderson followed with 17, and Addy Tuttle finished with four points. Tori Hawkins, Rachel Snedden and Emily Metz each scored two points for all the Hundred scoring.
