The Red Wolves were looking to break their pattern of win-one-lose one over the past six games and gain some mojo heading into 2A District tournament play this week.
But the Warriors had another thing in mind, handing CHS a decisive 68-51 loss Monday.
“The game was much closer than the 17-point difference showed, “Coach Joe Ayers said. “We were within 5-9 points for most of the game. Woodway is a very athletic team and the Bol brothers were just a little too much for us.”
Edmonds-Woodway set the pace early on outscoring Cedarcrest 23-15 in the first quarter and was up 36-27 at the half.
Each team pumped in 12 third-quarter points. The Warriors added 20 over the final eight minutes to the Red Wolves 12.
“Kian had a great game for us — had 19 points and 10 rebounds,” Ayers said. “Shawn (Deming) also did a good job with 14 points and three steals.”
Nicolo Cammarano added five points, Brennan Mallot and Cameron Brady finished with 5 points each.
Losing back-to-back games to Shorecrest last Friday and to Edmonds-Woodway on Monday is not the desirable way to head into postseason play, but the Red Wolves can put those losses behind them with a win over Archbishop Murphy tonight in Duvall.
The first-round District game tips off at 6 p.m. The winner moves on to round two. The loser is done for the season.
