Warriors are undefeated with Woods

As Angela Woods goes, so goes Edmonds-Woodway. The star junior forward had a game-high 21 points to lead E-W to a 59-41 league win over host Kamiak Wednesday.

Woods (17.1 ppg) had all but eight of her points in the first and fourth quarters — a symbolic statistic in that she often sets the tone for the Warriors and then finishes off their opponents.

Her value was never more evident than in E-W’s lone loss to Wesco South rival Meadowdale on Dec. 16. Woods (church commitment) was out, and the host Mavericks won by six.

The Warriors have been so dominant with the first-team all-league selection that in the seven games she’s played, their average lead entering the fourth quarter is just shy of 22 points.

“She’s a really tough match-up for other teams,” E-W first-year coach Duane Hodges said. “You put a little girl on her, she’s going to bust her up on the inside. You put a big girl on her and she’ll take her outside.”

E-W (7-1, 5-1), which already possessed impressive wins over Shorecrest (ranked eighth in 3A) and No. 10 Jackson, is tied atop the standings with the Timberwolves.

Kamiak (5-3, 3-3), meanwhile, fell into a fifth-place tie with Glacier Peak and Lynnwood. The Knights, however, could be a tough out should they qualify for the post-season.

All 10 of their players saw quality minutes, and nine appeared in the first quarter. It’s the type of depth that might be the undoing of a starter-heavy squad like, say, E-W, late in the season.

Or not.

“People’s strategy is to wear us down but no one’s been able to do it this year,” said Hodges, who has no seniors and just six proven scorers.

E-W travels Friday to Shorewood, while Kamiak hosts Mukilteo School District rival Mariner.
