But that was not the case Friday, as the Lady Falcons put a 52-27 thumping on the Lady Beavers for its eighth straight win, upping its record to 11-0, 15-1 overall.
Woodinville scored 20 points in the third quarter — four more than Ballard scored in three periods combined — to grab a 44-16 lead before coach Scott Bullock emptied the bench.
Ali Forde led the way with 15 points and 16 rebounds, and Kim Frost added 12.
“Kim had a great overall floor game,” Bullock said. “No turnovers handling the ball almost the entire night, and some great finishes in transition.”
The Lady Falcons made 15 steals, including five by Forde. “She filled up the stat sheet once again,” Bullock said. “Just an amazing athlete.”
Bullock was pleased that 10 players got minutes and all 10 scored.
“Diedre Miller was a big factor on the defensive boards with nine rebounds, and Mackenzie Campbell had another solid defensive effort holding their best player to three points.”
