  • Written by Derek Johnson
From the game’s opening tip-off, the faces of the Falcons had a certain gravitas. A level of seriousness not seen before.
This showdown was a big one. It pitted Woodinville against Inglemoor -- the only other challenger in the Crown Division of the Kingco 4A Conference. 
But Woodinville bounced out to a 15-0 lead. And the Lady Falcons never looked back, en route to a 58-45 win last Wednesday at Woodinville High School.

The Green Hornet Stings Bothell as Falcons win in Overtime

  • Written by Derek Johnson
In the game’s final minute, it looked like a lost cause. The Falcons had frittered away a lead and watched as Bothell took command in the fourth quarter.
Woodinville now trailed 50-43 with 53 second left. The Bothell student section was partying it up in the Bothell High School gym. Victory seemed assured for the hometown Cougars.
But The Green Hornet had other plans. Woodinville’s Cage Schenck buried two three pointers to force overtime. Then in the extra stanza, Schenck’s torrid shooting and Woodinville’s great defense led to a stunning 62-51 win.   
Schenck finished the game with 33 points, while earning his coach’s plaudits.
“Cage was on tonight, and our kids were finding him,” Woodinville coach Kurt Melton said. “He puts himself on the floor in the best position to score.”
The win improved Woodinville’s record to 5-6 in Kingco 4A, and 8-10 overall. It was a needed shot in the arm for a Falcon squad jockeying for position in the upcoming Kingco playoffs.

Last year, Woodinville’s fantastic freshman class was nicknamed “Young Guns” after the 1988 western which starred the charismatic cast of 1980’s “Brat Pack” members. But last Thursday at Redmond Pool, those swimmers started to come of age, as they cruised to a 103-80 win over Juanita. 

With the win, Woodinville improved to 3-2 on the season. The mere fact the Falcons have a winning record serves as evidence that coach George Sayah is on the right track.   

“It was a great day,” Sayah said. “We got off to the great start, which was nice. It sets a tone for us and motivates the guys to get out and swim as hard as they can.”
