No. 2 Burlington-Edison 53, Eatonville 38: The Tigers’ trio of lightning-quick guards proved to be too much for the Cruisers in the loser-out contest at Stanwood High.
Sydney Brown, Ryleigh Swagerty and Katlyn Mataya repeatedly poked or wrestled the ball away from Eatonville ball handlers and took the Cruisers (20-9) out of the game. Eighteen of Eatonville’s 24 turnovers in the game came via steals.
“Their guards are pretty impressive,” Eatonville coach Davina Serdahl said. “We knew their guards could be trouble coming in, and they did take us out of our offense a little.”
Laccie Hill scored a game-high 23 points and hit four 3-pointers for Eatonville, including three in the fourth quarter, while fellow senior Jessica Stead pulled down a game-high nine rebounds.
“We kept battling until the end,” Serdahl said. “I was proud of how my girls played. We’re still a young team, so we can learn from this. … It was great to see Laccie Hill and Jessica Stead play well in their final games.”
