Bothell was 0-and-12 coming in, Woodinville was 11-1 so everyone in the gym knew the game had a chance to be unmemorable.
It was, unless you were 5-foot-4 Falcon sophomore Midori McElwee, who knocked down 5-of-7 three-pointers for 15 points in 13 minutes of playing time.
“She was strokin’ it,” Woodinville coach Scott Bullock said. “She can do that. We see it all the time at practice.”
Undersized and overmatched athletically, the Lady Cougs appropriately went zone from jump street and hoped for the best.
The Lady Falcs had open looks from outside all around yet still looked inside and led by a tepid 10-5 after one quarter.
Bothell senior Sarah Garinger hit a three to make it 15-9 early in the second quarter, and then the roof fell in for the home team.
Woodinville hit 7-of-15 bombs — three from McElwee, two from Diedre Miller and one apiece from Mackenzie Campbell and Alexis McLeod — and it was 39-14 at the break.
The Lady Falcons put up a season-high 29 points in the period, and it didn’t end there.
Cassidy Berday, coming off the bench, knocked one down from long distance the first time she touched the ball and the rout continued.At the end of three quarters it was 62-18, and would end up 72-24.
“A lotta girls got to play and a lotta girls got to score,” Bullock said.
Ali Forde, the human high school double-double, notched 16 points and15 rebounds in 22 minutes in a ho-hummer.
For Bothell ... the band was really loud.
