The Shorecrest girls varsity basketball team (2-0) overcame a halftime deficit to defeat the Juanita Rebels 47-39 on Wednesday night, December 4, 2019.

The game was scrappy, and back-and-forth game through the first half, with Juanita leading 26-25 at the first half. It remained tight in the third, until Shorecrest pulled ahead for good, winning the 4th quarter, 10-6.

For the second night in a row, Shorecrest spread the scoring, with three players in double digits. Senior Sydney VanNess and Junior Kiana Lino both had double-doubles, with 10 points/11 rebounds, and 13 points/13 rebounds respectively.

VanNess got the crowd on its feet with a blocked shot on the baseline to start the game, and the intensity continued from there with the first quarter ending 14-10.

Juanita took the lead in the 2nd quarter until a steal and layup from senior Taylor Svenson kept them in the game. Shorecrest’s strong rebounds and tight defense kept them in the lead.

The Scots struggled in the 3rd quarter, but with the game tied at 30, senior Amanda Lee hit her first of three three-pointers in the quarter to give them the lead they would never give up. Lee’s offense was matched with Senior Maura “Mo” Weaver’s amazing defense, including three steals.

Earlier in the evening, the Shorecrest JV team (2-0) won 42-28, and the C team (2-0) won 44-17.

Shorecrest travels to Redmond at Redmond High School on Monday, December 9th. 7:15pm start.
