I’m anxious to see the No. 5 Lakes girls basketball team play at No. 7 Auburn Mountainview tonight. I’ll be tweeting updates and you can find them at twitter.com/seatimespreps.
Lakes (8-2) had not lost a game in-state until falling to surprising Enumclaw on Tuesday. Coach Daniel Guy indicated that some of his players didn’t perform to their capabilities and that it was Enumclaw’s night.
Auburn Mountainview (9-3) owes its three losses to out-of-state teams.
The marquee game Thursday saw Stanwood (ranked No. 6 in 4A) hold off No. 7 Jackson, 58-56. I had to look elsewhere for the information as it was not reported to The Times. The Spartans really showed their balance as Tristan Murphy scored 12, Paisley Heckman 11 and Renee Lucero 10.
Jackson, which missed the potential tying shot at the buzzer, got 14 points from Kelli Kingma and 12 from Kristin Stoffel.
Now onto some highlights from Thursday games that were reported to The Times:
Lake Stevens 64, Kamiak 31
Katie Goddard poured in 24 points for the third-ranked Vikings, who also got a dozen from Brooke Pahukoa.
Edmonds-Woodway 54, Monroe 42
E-W’s Madeline Kasper had a big night with 26 points and Sidney Eck chipped in 10. Monroe’s Breezy Shore finished with 14.
Arlington 56, Mariner 16
Krista Showalter (16) and Megan Abdo (10) led the way.
Kentridge 53, Curtis 42
The Chargers got 14 points from Courtnae Williams and 12 from Jessica Torlai.
Granite Falls 57, Coupeville 34
Peyton Spencer led the way with 27 points.
Archbishop Murphy 49, King’s 44
Joclyn Kirton connected for 21 points, but the Wildcats prevailed with a more balanced attack led by Beth Carlson (21) and MairieMichael Carroll (13).
Rainier Christian 48, Chief Leschi 21
Hailey West (14), Emily Jazbutis (12) and Vanessa Butler (10) keyed the victory.
