SHORELINE — There were aspects of Friday's game that Mountlake Terrace coach Nalin Sood admitted could have been better.

His team gave up an uncharacteristically high 20 points in the first quarter, struggled at times offensively and made just 2 of 6 free throws in the fourth quarter. But with the game on the line, in front of a hostile crowd that turned up the volume late, Mountlake Terrace's players didn't panic.

And because of that, the eighth-ranked Hawks held on for a 52-50 boys basketball win against No. 10 Shorewood.
