Boys Basketball

The 2-13-2014 boys basketball season kicked off with back-to-back games on Tuesday (vs Anacortes) and Wednesday (vs Ballard).

Tuesday's Anacortes games (Freshman, JV and Varsity) were played at Oak Harbor HS.  The evening started with the freshmen team over in the dome, and it was a close-fought battle for 3 quarters.  At the end of the first period the teams were tied at 12, and the Wildcats went into the locker room at halftime down only 1 point, 24-23.  The boys came back in the 3rd to take a 37-35 lead going into the final quarter, but the Anacortes offense caught fire, pouring in 23 points in the final 8 minutes.  The Seahawks also turned up the defense, holding OH to just 7 points in the 4th.  The final was 58-44 for Anacortes.

Jordan Davenport finished with 12 points for Oak Harbor and Dyllan Bailey scored 6.  Finishing with 5 points each were JJ Mitchell and Joshua Cote.  Adam Nelson, Ty Baker and Eli Loera each scored 4 points.  James Lage and Kurtis Zylstra finished with 2 each.

The next day against Ballard, the freshman team had another tight game.  Oak Harbor led 13-9 at the end of the first and led 23-19 at the half, but this time it was the opponent who came back in the 3rd to take a 31-29 lead.  Regulation time ended with the two teams tied at 38, so off to overtime they went.  The 5th quarter was tight, with neither team leading by more than 2 points, but in the end, the final was Oak Harbor 48, Ballard 46.  Davenport scored 12 and Baker and Cote were also in double figures with Baker scoring 11 and Cote 10.  Zylstra finished with 7, Princeton Lollar 4, and Nelson and Loera scored 2 apiece.

The JV squad struggled against both Anacortes and Ballard.  In the Anacortes game, the Seahawks sprinted to a 16-6 1-quarter lead and held on to win 55-29.  Savion Passmore led the Wildcats with 7 points.  Ben Fikse and Diangelo McKinney scored 5 each, while Anthony Powell, JJ Johnson and D'Andre Bellamy scored 2 each.

In the Ballard game, the Beavers dominated with a stifling defense.  The Wildcats were held to 4 points in the first quarter and just a single free throw in the second as the Seattle team went on to win 57-19.  Preston Rankin led the team with 9 points, all scored in the 4th period.  Johnson scored 3, JJ Mitchell, moving up to JV, scored 2 along with McKinney.  Passmore and Tanner Walker scored 1 point each.

Finally, the two varsity games.

Versus Anacortes, the Wildcats did well for the first two quarters, going into the locker room at halftime down a manageable 33-21.  However, Anacortes came out to start the 3rd quarter on a mission.  The Wildcat offense continued to perform, scoring 15 in the 3rd and 11 in the 4th, but after scoring 33 in the first two periods Anacortes scored 28 in the 3rd quarter alone, and added another 24 in the 4th to win 85-47.  Drew Washington 21 and Dyllan Harris 11 to lead the Wildcat scoring.  Jacob Sturdevant added 6, Gabe Groenig and Zach Jones 3 each, Shane Huttula 2 and Elijah Smith 1.

The next day, Washington and Harris switched roles, with Harris scoring 24 and Washington 12 as Ballard used a 19-4 first quarter to hold on for a 66-43 win.  Also scoring for Oak Harbor were Sturdevant, Jones and Sean Erskine with 2 each and Gabe Groenig with 1.

Next Tuesday the Wildcats are at home against Wesco 4A Snohomish, then again on December 20th against Ferndale before heading to Bellevue for their annual tournament.
