Woodinville upset highlights Friday night

Woodinville won just its third KingCo 4A game of the season Friday night — against the third-ranked team in the state.

If ever more evidence was necessary that anything can happen in the regular season, Friday night proved so much, and Woodinville led the way with a 40-39 upset of third-ranked Roosevelt. I wasn’t there, so I can’t say whether Woodinville’s defense or Roosevelt’s offense held the Riders to 27.5 percent shooting. The Riders surely didn’t help themselves at the line, where they went 4-for-13.

But let’s give some credit to 6-8 center Ryan Gilkey and 6-1 forward Taylor Banks, who combined for 26 points in the win. However the Falcons finish the season, they’ll have this game to remember.

They have also helped turn the KingCo Mountain into a race again. Bothell, at 7-3 in the conference, is only a game behind Roosevelt with a big Feb. 8 meeting looming.

Woodinville wasn’t the only team to leave with an upset. Shorecrest’s boys beat 10th-ranked Meadowdale 64-57 in overtime, led by Mark Golike’s 21 points. Bainbridge’s girls beat 10th-ranked Lakeside in overtime for Bainbridge’s fourth consecutive win.
