After four games, there is a clear pattern emerging for these 2012-13 Lady Falcons: Right from the get-go, press, press, press. And then press some more.
On Friday against Redmond at home, senior guard and co-captain Kim Frost was the beneficiary of those efforts, notching a career high 26 points in a runaway 75-40 victory.
At least 20 of those points were the result of the press, leading to runaway layups. At times it seemed Frost was simply leading her own layup line.
Woodinville made 21 steals, a pretty good recipe on its own to win a high school basketball game. They notched 23 steals last week against Tahoma.
“The girls had fun again tonight,” coach Scott Bullock said. “We got after it from the start and all 13 girls played.”
After the half, Bullock called off the press. By then it was 45-18.
Mackenzie Campbell, a demon on the defensive end, made five steals and scored 11 points, though her all-around presence on the floor cannot be categorized.
Sophomore post Kennae Tiersma grabbed nine rebounds off the bench, six on the offensive glass.
Woodinville shot 25 of 48 (52 percent) from the floor, 6 of 16 (38 percent) from long range.
The biggest bomb of the night came just before the half, as the Lady Falcons worked a rare half-court play with 15 seconds remaining. Frost, the point guard in those situations, slowed it down, wor ked it and found Midori McElwee, open behind a screen.
McElwee, 5-foot-4, drained it with the clock winding down, a rainbow high-arching and pretty as you please … a no-doubter.
The Lady Falcs take on Eastlake at home on Friday.
