Some high-school girls basketball highlights from Wednesday

One upset stood out when I checked the the high-school girls basketball games played Wednesday night.

Eastlake knocked off No. 10 Inglemoor to advance to the semifinals of the KingCo 4A tournament. The Wolves now play Skyline Saturday with a trip to regionals on the line. Inglemoor, which took No. 6 Woodinville to overtime before losing last Saturday, must now win three straight to qualify for regionals.

Woodinville and Issaquah play in the other semifinal Saturday. Woodinville took a step closer to regionals by beating Newport, avenging its only in-state loss. Issaquah downed Roosevelt.

Here are highlights from those games, as well as the others reported to The Times Wednesday:

KingCo 4A Tournament

Eastlake 60, Inglemoor 57

A 14-9 third quarter made the difference for the Wolves, who got 16 points from Kendra Morrison and 10 from Caleigh McCabe. Taylor Peacocke paced the Vikings with 20 points and Kelly Conroy added 12. Inglemoor had won 12 in a row before the back-to-back losses.

Woodinville 59, Newport 38

Ali Forde led a trio of Woodinville players in double figures with 17. She was followed by Mackenzie Campbell (12) and Kim Frost (10).
