CPC’s varied attack takes down Wolves / Boys basketball

Getting help from a handful of players, the Cedar Park Christian boys basketball team won 87-44 in Coupeville Monday, Jan. 20.

Cedar Park Christian is “a hard team to game-plan for because they have so many weapons,” Coupeville coach Brad Sherman said.

The Eagles proved the point by producing five players who scored in double figures, led by Justin Trout with 21.

Cedar Park Christian jumped to leads of 9-0 and 19-2 before finishing the first quarter ahead 21-7.

The Wolves’ Mason Grove drilled four three-pointers and scored 14 points in the second quarter as Coupeville got to within 11 midway through the period.

Hawthorne Wolfe backed Grove with 6 points in the quarter, but CPC recovered to go up 47-28 at halftime.

Grove finished with 16 points and Wolfe 12 to lead the Coupeville offense.

Xavier Murdy had 5 points, Koa Davison 4, Jacobi Pilgrim 3, Jered Brown 2 and Gavin Knoblich 2.

Starter Sean Toomey-Stout sat most of the game in foul trouble, and Coupeville played without an ill Ulrik Wells.

The road doesn’t get any easier for the Wolves (1-3, 4-8) this week. First they head to King’s (4-0, 8-8) to play the first-place Knights at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, and then to go to Bothell for a rematch with Cedar Park Christian (3-3, 8-7) at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4.
