Wednesday night the 1A District Playoffs started off with a bang inside Mike Martin Gymnasium, where the Kings' Knights hosted the Mount Baker Mountaineers in this exciting boys basketball game.

The drama of wondering if the defending State 1A Champs would be knocked off early was quickly put to rest. Kings shot out to a 9-0 lead after just 2 minutes and 37 seconds had elapsed in the 1st quarter.

By the beginning of the 2nd quarter the score was 24-8 in favor of the Knights. Junior forward Corey Kispert dunked the ball and got the crowd fired up even more. Senior guards Cole Mitchell and Koa Wilkins worked the floor very well by distributing the ball and picking the right times to take smart shots at the basket. The Mountaineers got a dunk from senior center Timothy Soares, but the momentum of that shot wasn’t enough to bring them back. At the end of the 1st half the Knights had a commanding 46-25 edge.

In the 3rd and 4th quarters head coach Rick Skeen started to rest his starters and took the foot off the gas. The game ended with a score of 73-34 in the Knights' favor and they seemed poised to make another deep run this year.
