The second half was more of the same as Mountlake Terrace continued to outscore Marysville-Pilchuck in each of the last two quarters by 9-8 and 12-8, respectively. The Hawks came away with the 46-31 victory over the Tomahawks.
“Our program hasn’t won a league game in a couple of years and I thought we would have come out wanting that more from the start. We’re dealing with some injuries and moving people around, but we’re still working on putting it together and grabbing a couple more wins before the end of the year,” said Marysville-Pilchuck Head Coach Taylor Stevens.
Marysville-Pilchuck’s seniors Miriah Summers, Alex Grimm, Georgia Bradley and MacKenzie Konsor showed up to play for their team. Summers put together a double-double performance with a game-high 14 points and 13 rebounds. She also added on an assist and a team-high three steals. Grimm was second on her team with nine points as well as two assists, six rebounds and two steals. Bradley came off the bench at center for the Tomahawks and scored two points from the free throw line while also grabbing two rebounds and one steal. Konsor wasn’t able to put points on the board but still contributed with three assists, three rebounds and one steal.
Madyson Baxter, sophomore, was the only non-senior starter for the Tomahawks and put together an impressive showing. She scored six points, grabbed seven rebounds and forced a turnover with a steal.
