A win and a loss for Woodinville

  • Written by Don Mann
To no one’s great surprise there were back-to-back basketball blowouts at Woodinville High School Friday night.

One for the girls in green, the other for the boys in blue.

Tit for tat, fair and square, even Steven — though that’s surely cold comfort for those kids on the losing end.

In the opener, Woodinville’s Lady Falcons whooped Bothell 71-33, jumping out to a 25-9 lead after one quarter on the heels of trademark full-court pressure and leading 47-15 at the half.

Lights out for the girls in blue.

Mackenzie Campbell, back from injury and wearing a cumbersome knee brace, led all scorers with 15 points. Kim Frost scored 12 and Erin Hamilton added 10.

Bothell freshman Jessi Howe led the Lady Cougars with 10 of her own.

The nightcap got more interesting as fans — even Inglemoor fans — filled the gym to watch the undefeated and top-ranked Cougar boys’ team take on Woodinville at their place.

Zach Lavine’s first shot was an air-ball, which caused major applause from the hometown crowd.

But the stellar D-1 kid went on to score a season-high 37 points, from inside and out, as Bothell took a 38-10 lead at halftime, going on to win 73-46 on the road to remain unbeaten at 13-0 overall.

When it mattered, Lavine spread the floor and worked his magic, knocking down long-range jumpers like layups and going to the rim at will.

The UCLA-bound senior — arguably the best player in the state of Washington —  was simply sensational, and the Falcons, like every other Cougar opponent thus far, had no answer.

Perrion Callendret added 18 points also from inside and out, and junior behemoth Josh Martin went for nine with 13 rebounds, including two put-back slams that rocked the house for the visiting kids in blue.

Quinten Parker led Woodinville with 14 points.

Bothell will face some stiff competition when facing Rainier Beach and Garfield later this month, to see where they stand.

Woodinville, now 1-7 in KingCo, 1-10 overall, will have their hands full at Redmond next Friday night.
