MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — All evening, Zach Pederson had toiled away. The Glacier Peak big man made baby hook after baby hook from 10 feet and in, but missed his longer jumpers.

And his efforts hadn't got Glacier Peak closer than six points against Shorecrest Tuesday night at Mountlake Terrace High.

But when he needed it most, Pederson got a 15-foot hook shot to fall with seven seconds to play, giving Glacier Peak a 53-52 victory and a spot in the regional round of the state playoffs.

The victory earned Glacier Peak (17-7) a matchup with No. 1 Rainier Beach Friday at 6 p.m. at Bellevue College. The defeat ended the season for Shorecrest (17-8).

Shorecrest had led 18-10 after the first quarter, 30-21 at halftime and 43-34 after three quarters before Glacier Peak outscored the Scots 19-9 in the final period. Junior Chibuogwu led Shorecrest with 14 points, followed by Keith Shattuck with 13 and Trevor McCoy with 12,
