On Saturday night the Shorecrest Scots came from behind early to win by 31 over the Cedarcrest Red Wolves in the 1st round of the 2A District playoffs.

Down by 1 at the end of the 1st quarter (16-17) the Scots roared back to outscore the Red Wolves 22-13 during the 2nd quarter.

Strong performances by Philip Pepple (25 pts, 3 blks), Aubry Victor (10+ rebs, 2 assts) and Malcolm Rosier-Butler (15pts, 8 assts, 2 stls) helped to grow the lead. By the end of the game there were 4 Scots in double figures in scoring.

The Scots now move on to play Lynden at Mount Vernon HS on Tuesday at 8pm. The winner of that game will be automatically qualified for the 2A Regionals.

Tuesday’s game should be a tough matchup for the Scots with Lynden posting a regular season record of 20-1, but the boys seem to be playing well together and the playoffs are exactly the time to be in the grove.
