Some girls basketball highlights from Monday night

There was a full round of WesCo 3A girls basketball games Monday night, and at this time of the season many games are crucial.

Lynnwood had to come from behind to beat Shorewood, 66-50, and maintain a half-game lead over Shorecrest atop the standings. The Royals trailed 42-38 in the fourth quarter before pulling away, ultimately outscoring Shorewood 28-8 in that final period. Mokun Fajemisin came up with her usual double-double (24 points, 16 boards), while Jasmine Edwards contributed 22 points and six steals. Meghan Cross added 10 points. Shorewood got a game-high 26 points from Masha Shtikel and 11 from Lisa Echert.

Here are highlights from some of the other games, starting with more WesCo 3A action:

Shorecrest 47, Oak Harbor 32

The eighth-ranked Scots, who have beaten Lynnwood twice, got scoring contributions from 10 players, led by Brianne Lasconia (13) and India Matheson (11).

Meadowdale 72, Mountlake Terrace 54

Margreet Barhoum dropped in 17 of her 27 points in the fourth quarter as the third-place Mavericks pulled away, outscoring Terrace 27-6 in the period. Bianca Landa and Julianne Kossian each hit for 12 points. For Terrace, Christine Lotz scored 15 and Mindy James 13.

Everett 55, Glacier Peak 51

In the battle for fourth place, Everett had four players reach double figures — Kiki Harper (13), Aliyah Davis (11), Jesselyn Taggart (11) and Sidney Rielly (10). The Grizzlies fell despite a game-high 22 points from Becca Smith and 16 more from Taylor Rasmussen.
