Wildcats lose to league-leaders / Boys basketball

First-place Marysville-Pilchuck showed the Oak Harbor High School boys basketball team why it is undefeated in Western Conference play, beating the host Wildcats 78-37 Friday, Jan. 24.

The Tomahawks (9-0, 13-2), receiving 12 points from Ethan Jackson, buried the Wildcats 21-7 in the first quarter.

M-P pulled ahead 42-19 and 64-27 at the quarter breaks.

Will Rankin led Oak Harbor in scoring with 10 points. Mason Myers had 8, Matt Kelley 7, Brock Boyer 3, Gage McLeod 3, Jordan Ronning 3, Garrett Levell 2 and Josh Pendleton 1.

Cameron Stordahl scored a game-high 21 for Marysville-Pilchuck; Jackson finished with 17. Ten Tomahawks scored, three in double figures.

Oak Harbor coach Nate Sullivan was happy with his team’s attitude in the game: “In a game like that, it is good that they kept their heads up. They tried to stay aggressive the entire game.”

“Their talk was positive, nothing negative,” he added.

Oak Harbor (0-9, 1-14) goes to Snohomish (1-8, 4-11) at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29, and then hosts Everett (2-7, 5-10) at 7:15 p.m. Friday, Jan. 31.
