Top-ranked Federal Way girls use big run to dispatch Garfield

In the final game of the Assist for Life girls basketball event at Steilacoom High School, top-ranked Federal Way turned on the jets in the third quarter to race past Garfield, 77-48.

The Eagles (12-1), who lost over the holidays by a point to Coeur d’Alene, trailed 31-30 early in the third quarter before cranking up the defensive pressure to force a bevy of turnovers that resulted in an 18-4 run. By the time the period ended, they were in full control, 56-41.

Federal Way is finally healthy after dealing with a variety of injuries, although they lost guard Chantel Dixon to an ACL before the season started and she will not return.

Garfield, on the other hand, is still limping — and also lost their floor leader to a ACL injury prior to the season. But the Bulldogs (5-7) still have talent and hope to be around for the playoffs. Against Federal Way, they got 17 points from Nyasha Sarju and 14 from Cora McManus.

The Eagles were led by Talia Walton with 19 points, sever rebounds and six steals. Raven Benton added 15 points and Darah Huertas-Vining was stellar with 13 points, six steals and six assists. Ty Burgess contributed 12 points as well.

That’s it for tonight. Check back Monday for coverage from the “I’ve Got a Dream” Matchup at Foster.
