Scots boys topple Tumwater, advance to finals

Friday, March 4, 2016

The Shorecrest boys basketball team overcame a 13-minute scoring drought (including all of the third quarter) to defeat the Tumwater T-Birds 47-41 and advance to the 2A State Championship Game Saturday afternoon at 3 in the Yakima Sun Dome.

Senior Tobyn Lawson snapped out of a small scoring slump by hitting three 3's in the first quarter to get the Scots close after trailing by nine early.

Shorecrest (19-8) will face the Clarkston Bantams (24-1).

The Scots have two '2nd At State' green banners hanging in their gym.

They'd love to add a white  'State Champions' one.
