Free-throw follies hurt Wildcats / Girls basketball

The inability to hit free throws hurt the Oak Harbor High School girls basketball team in a 42-32 loss at Mountlake Terrace Thursday, Jan. 10.

The Wildcats made only three of 10 foul shots in the fourth quarter and just five of 19 in the game. The Hawks connected on eight of 10 in the final period and 10 of 16 over four quarters.

Oak Harbor started strong. Jasmine Ford scored 6 points and Mikhaela Cortez and Grace Waite each hit three-pointers as the Wildcats led 14-11 after the opening period.

From that point, Oak Harbor’s offense struggled.

Terrace led 20-18 at halftime and 26-25 going into the final frame.

Kierra Scott connected on seven of eight free throws in the fourth quarter and scored 11 points in the period to help Terrace (2-4, 4-8) pull away.

Scott finished with a game-high 16 points.

Ford led Oak Harbor with 15 points. Sarah Mensah had 5, Cortez 4, Grace Waite 4, Olivia Waite 2 and Anna Jones 2.

Oak Harbor (0-7, 3-10) hosts powerful Shorecrest (6-1, 11-1) at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11.
