FAIRFIELD — Fairfield got off to a blistering start and Waterloo West never fully recovered as the Trojans grabbed a 65-57 non-conference girls’ basketball win Saturday afternoon.

Fairfield (4-0, No. 14 in Class 4A) scored 27 first-quarter points with the help of seven 3-point field goals. The Trojans led 43-19 at halftime and although West controlled the second half, the Wahawks had too big a deficit to overcome.

NaTracia Ceaser led West (2-2) with 23 points and Jada Draine added 16.

WATERLOO EAST 62, DES MOINES NORTH 22: Waterloo East dominated Des Moines North in the opening half and cruised to a non-conference girls’ basketball win Saturday.

Kerris Roberts scored 20 points, Amanee Clark 18 and DeNae Nash 13 for East.

NEW HAMPTON 65, COLUMBUS 54: Waterloo Columbus dropped its season opener to New Hampton Saturday in a contest played at Upper Iowa University.

The Sailors gave up the first 10 points of the game, but battled back to tie it at 14 going into the second quarter. The Chickasaws held a 50-39 edge after three quarters and again the Sailors fought back to cut the deficit to 54-49 with two minutes to play.

Olivia Fain scored 15 points to lead the Sailors. Isabel Leichtman paced the Chickasaws with 16 points.
