Scots sweep both games in Hoopapalooza V

Sunday, January 26, 2014

The Shorecrest Scots swept both games in Hoopapalooza V on Saturday in the Shorewood gym, with their girls winning 50-47 over the T-Birds in the opener, while the boys nipped Shorewood 50-49 on Alex Hofstrand’s 3-pointer with :06 to play in the nightcap.

Both girls’ teams came into their matchup on winning streaks. The Scots had won 8 in a row (and 10 of their last 11), while the T-Birds had ripped off six straight wins (and 8 out of 9).

Shorecrest (8-1 in WESCO, 13-3 overall) raced out to a 27-19 halftime lead, as the speedy Scots were able to pressure the T-Birds into twelve turnovers.

The T-Birds (5-4, 11-5) settled down in the second half, outscoring their crosstown rivals 28-23, and drew within two points of the Scots, but they ran out of time before they were able to even the score.

The Scots were led by freshman Keyonna Jones’ 17 points (including five 3-pointers), and speedy sophomore Wurrie Njadoe, who scored 16. Lanky Lily Gustafson led the T-Birds with 15, while Karrin Leazer (a soph, as is Gustafson) had 9.

Shorecrest plays a pair of road games this coming week, at Glacier Peak on Wednesday, and at Oak Harbor Friday.

The T-Birds look to avenge a pair of early season losses when they play Meadowdale on Wednesday and league-leading Mountlake Terrace on Friday, both games being at home.
