The Woodinville girls’ basketball team snapped a two-game losing streak with a 64-32 road thumping at Bothell last Friday. Kim Frost led all scorers with 17 points as full-court pressure steals were converted into easy buckets in a first-half feeding frenzy, and Erin Hamilton stepped up with 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting, including nine rebounds and five blocked shots.Sabin Keo made six steals.Woodinville played without junior standout Mackenzie Campbell, who was shelved for the third straight game with a calf injury. This time it did not affect the Lady Falcons adversely, as they jumped out to a 21-6 first quarter lead, made it 38-18 at the break, and 54-22 after three — despite shooting an off-kilter 6-of-27 from downtown — didn’t matter much, as they shot over 50 percent on twos alone, a veritable layup line off the press against an inexperienced Cougar backcourt.

“I was really impressed with Erin tonight,” coach Scott Bullock said. “She was very active and aggressive. And Kim was very solid again. It’s such a luxury to have her speed, experience, and improved control.”

Woodinville is now 3-2 in KingCo play, 6-2 overall.Campbell, with her defensive prowess and 19 points per game, should be back for the Jan. 4 showdown at Inglemoor (5-0, 8-0).

The Lady Vikings ripped Redmond 67-39 at home Friday, behind 24 points from 6-foot-4 sophomore Deja Strother and 16 by senior Kelly Conroy.To use one of Bullock’s favorite words, it should be a donnybrook.
