Everett senior helps sink Oak Harbor / Girls basketball

Just too much Kate Pohland.

Pohland, a 5-11 senior post, racked up 35 points to lead visiting Everett to a 59-48 win over the Oak Harbor High School girls basketball team Friday, Jan. 26.

Everett (4-6, 5-14) secured a playoff berth with the win and eliminated Oak Harbor (0-10, 3-15).

The Wildcats wrap up the season with two more games: 7:15 p.m. Friday, Feb. 2, at Marysville-Pilchuck (0-9, 0-17); and 7:15 p.m. Monday, Feb. 5, at home with Meadowdale (3-6, 6-11).

Everett 59, Oak Harbor 48

The game was close throughout.

Jasmine Ford scored 6 points and Samantha Hines 5 and Oak Harbor led 17-13 at the end of the first quarter.

A three-point shot by Jordan Wood-Pina at the end of the second period gave the Wildcats a 6-point halftime lead, 28-22, the biggest advantage by either team until Everett’s surge at the end.

The Seagulls outscored Oak Harbor 17-6 in the third quarter with the help of 10 points by Pohland to go up 39-34.

Three free throws from Miranda Wilson and a bucket by Ford off an offense rebound knotted the game at 39 with 6:50 remaining, then Pohland took charge.

The Seagulls went on a 12-3 run — getting the first 11 points from Pohland — to put the game away.

Ford scored 15 points for Oak Harbor, followed by Hines (9), Wilson (9), Wood-Pina (6), Delija Cammon (4), Kia Ceya (2), Olivia Waite (2) and Mikhaela Cortez (1).

Amina Hussein backed Pohland with 10 points.

The Seagulls helped their cause by hitting 22 of 26 free throws; Oak Harbor was 13-for-21.

“We played hard,” Oak Harbor coach Jon Atkins said. “Pohland is a good player.”

Atkins lauded the play of Ford and Waite, who was getting her first “big varsity minutes.”

“We are getting there,” Atkins added. “And that’s the goal, to get better.”

Oak Harbor honored its five seniors before the game, and Atkins started the group — Ceya, Cammon, Hines, Wood-Pina and Leni Aguilar.
