Arlington cruises by Wildcats / Girls basketball

The red-hot Arlington High School girls basketball team defeated visiting Oak Harbor 70-27 Friday, Jan. 19.

The Eagles raced to a 26-5 lead in the first period and never cooled off. Seven different Arlington players scored in the opening quarter as the Eagles put up nearly as many points in the period as the Wildcats did in the game.

Arlington (5-2, 8-7) pushed its lead to 38-14 at halftime and 59-22 after three quarters.

Mikaela Cortez hit three three-pointers and led Oak Harbor in scoring with 13 points. Jasmine Ford scored 4 points, Miranda Wilson 3, Jordan Wood-Pina 3, Emily Gouge 2 and Kia Ceya 1.

The Wildcats played without starting point guard Mia Littlejohn, who was ill.

Oak Harbor dropped to 0-8 in Wesco play, 3-13 overall; however, the schedule gets easier from this point. The Wildcats’ final four league games are against teams with a combined 6-23 conference record.

Oak Harbor plays at Marysville Getchell (1-6, 2-13) at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 24.
