There was a point during the second quarter that made you wonder if tonight was the night. Woodinville’s Regan Schenck had just hustled for an offensive rebound, fired a cross court pass to Alexa Kelly, who dished to teammate Gabi Glessner, who in turn buried a baseline jumper.
In the highly-charged environment of a jam-packed gym, it was clear that the visiting Woodinville Falcons had their work cut out for them. But their slow start in the face of a highly motivated opponent led to a frustrating 68-65 loss to Inglemoor last Friday night.
“We didn’t come out with the same firepower,” Woodinville coach Mark Folsom said. “At times I thought we got complacent.”

It was an odd way to start a game: in a nearly empty gym, with 5:15 on the clock and Woodinville holding fast to a 42-37 lead. But that was the case Saturday night, as the Falcons hosted Inglemoor to finish a game that had been suspended Jan. 12 due to a leaky roof in the Woodinville gymnasium.
Key points scored by Demetri Ilias, Tony Miller and Jesse Davis helped lead Woodinville to the 51-42 victory.
When the game was over, and the crowd filed out of Newport’s gymnasium, it was a sign of the Super Bowl times that several fans wore Marshawn Lynch jerseys.
Those fans had just seen Woodinville play with Beast Quake intensity, turning in their best overall performance of the season. And as freshman star Regan Schenck was summoned several times to come talk to a reporter, she balked, giggled and protested, before an impatient teammate dragged her by the arm to the waiting scribe.
