Wednesday, January 25, 2012

The Shorewood girls’ basketball team opened a four-game week with a 59-47 victory over Marysville Getchell Monday.

Shorewood takes a 5-5 Western Conference 3A Division record (6-8 overall) into a Wednesday game at Everett (8-4 Wesco 3A, 11-5 overall), followed by a home game against Glacier Peak Friday. Both games are scheduled for 7:15 p.m., with junior varsity games at 5:40 and “C” team games at 3:45.

The Thunderbirds then play a make-up home game with Oak Harbor Saturday at 5 p.m. The game was postponed from Jan. 19 because of weather.

In Shorewood’s 59-47 victory over Marysville Getchell (0-12, 0-16), Shorewood led 21-8 after the first quarter, 36-15 at halftime and 52-22 after three quarters before easing to victory in the final period. Masha Shtikel led Shorewood with 18 points, followed by Jennifer Thompson with 11 and Jennifer Franklin with 9.

For the season, Shtikel leads the Thunderbirds with 203 points in 14 games for an average of 14.5 points per game.

With six games left in the Wesco 3A season, Shorewood has a solid hold on the Wesco’s sixth and final berth in the Northwest District 3A tournament, well ahead of seventh-place Mountlake Terrace’s 2-9 Wesco 3A record (4-11 overall). Shorewood’s scheduled Jan. 16 game at Mountlake Terrace has been rescheduled for Feb. 3. The T-birds won a home game over the Hawks, 53-36, in December.
