Wildcats still looking for first Wesco win / Girls basketball

Dropping two games last week, the Oak Harbor High School girls basketball team remained winless in league play.

The Wildcats fell 45-38 at Mountlake Terrace Wednesday, Jan. 10, and 75-32 to visiting Shorecrest Friday, Jan. 12.

Things don’t get easier for Oak Harbor this week. The Wildcats host 10th-ranked Edmonds-Woodway (5-1, 12-2) at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, then face another team with only one conference loss, Arlington (4-1, 7-6), on the road Friday.

From there, the schedule eases up as Oak Harbor (0-6, 3-11) finishes the season against four teams with a combined three Wesco wins.

Mountlake Terrace 45, Oak Harbor 38

A dismal second quarter sank the Wildcats. Mountlake Terrace led 15-12 after one period, then Oak Harbor managed only 3 points in the second and trailed 24-15 at halftime.

Getting 8 points from Jasmine Ford, the Wildcats cut the lead to 36-29 going into the last quarter, but the Hawks hung on for the win.

Mountlake Terrace avenged a 49-45 loss in overtime in a non-league game with the Wildcats Nov. 29.

Ford guided Oak Harbor with 15 points; Delija Cammon and Mia Littlejohn had 6, Samantha Hines and Mikaela Cortez scored 4 each; and Miranda Wilson added a free throw.

Nohea Morrison scored 12 points for the Hawks.

Shorecrest 75, Oak Harbor 32

Shorecrest (6-0, 11-3) remained tied with Snohomish for first in the Western Conference with the victory.

Using a full-court press most of the game, the Scots outscored Oak Harbor in each period, taking leads of 15-3, 38-15 and 57-25.

Shorecrest had its five starters on the floor when it finished the game on a 12-0 run.

Wilson hit two three-balls and finished with 10 points for the Wildcats. Jordan Wood-Pina canned three from beyond the arc for 9 points; Hines had 5, Ford 4, Littlejohn 2 and Sami Olson 2.

Julia Strand scored a game high 19 points for Shorecrest.
