(Seattle, WA) This one was never in doubt with a start to finish lead by Garfield pulling out to a big 17-0 lead before the Eagles even scored a point. The Bulldogs improved to 7-1 and have a game at Franklin next Wednesday to finish their season. Cleveland drops to 0-7 and will look for their 1st win at home against Rainier Beach next week.

SPSL 2A Girls
Eatonville 48, Clover Park 26

(Lakewood, WA) This game came down to 5 minutes of madness for the Eatonville Cruisers. After a clumsy 1st half that saw the 4-1 Cruisers take just a 20-14 halftime lead, Eatonville would come out firing in the 3rd quarter. The score went from a 6 point lead to a 35-14 lead to a 42-16 lead with about 3:45 to play in the 3rd quarter.

The explosion of points also ended as quickly as it came. For the final 11+ minutes Eatonville only scored 6 more points and Clover Park actually outscored them during that time 10-6. In fact, take out the 5-minute 22-2 run and the score was 26-24 in favor of the Cruisers but certainly a completely different game. This is how devastating that burst was for Eatonville putting the game out of reach so quickly in the 3rd quarter. 

Haley Rath led the Cruisers with 12 points hitting half of those in that critical 5-minute stretch. Gionna Mervyn had 11 and spread scoring throughout the game with 3 in the 1st quarter, 2 in the 2nd, 4 in the 3rd and 2 in the 4th. Brooke Blocker also hit double digits with 11, Berkley Porter really led the charge during the run with 8 points all in the 3rd quarter and 2 big 3-balls. Hannah Kralik added 4 off the bench and Alexia Price had 2.\

For the Warriors Liupapa Laulu led the scoring with 11 hitting 3 from behind the arc and 2 free throws. Alicia-Ellaylnn Soliai had 9 all from in the paint and hitting 3 of 4 free throws. Kamila Salanoa finished the scoring for C-P with 6 also from the inside. 

Eatonville is now 5-1 overall while Clover Park falls to 2-4. Our players of the game went to Eatonville’s Brooke Blocker for her offense and solid defense inside and to Clover Park’s Alicia Ellaylnn Soliai for her inside presence as well both scoring and defense.
