Girls basketball: Cedarcrest runs away from Wolves in 2nd half

After a tight first half, the visiting Cedarcrest High School girls basketball team ran away from Coupeville for a 56-26 win Tuesday, Jan. 18.

Up just 23-17 at the break, the Red Wolves outscored Coupeville 34-9 in the second half to roll to the big win.

Coupeville coach Jackie Bykonen said, "(In) the second half, they shot a high percentage. We also had problems breaking their press."

Problems handling the press were magnified because the Wolves were playing without starting point guard Cassidi Rosenkrance who missed the game with shin problems.

In spite of the one-sided loss, Bykonen believes her team can compete with Cedarcrest: "They were a beatable team, which was too bad. Just little mental mistakes that we continue to make."

Katie Smith and Jai'Lysa Hoskins topped Coupeville with six points each. Kendra O'Keefe added five, Bessie Walstad four, Courtney Arnold two and Shelby Kultz one.

Coupeville (1-7, 2-11) plays King's (7-1, 10-4) at home Friday, Jan. 21, at 7 p.m. and then travels to South Whidbey (1-7, 1-11) Tuesday, Jan. 25.
