Nick French pounded Cedarcrest inside for a team-high 17 points, his best this season.
It wasn’t enough to counter the Red Wolves’ guard play, headed by the Cascade Conference’s reigning MVP, Zach Taylor, and his 20 points. Cedarcrest won 56-39, South Whidbey’s fourth loss by double digits.
Through six games, the Falcons allowed an average of 57.8 points per game and scored 35.
They faced Coupeville on Friday, which would determine their District 1 tournament chances. The Falcons need to finish ahead of the Wolves, or their season ends in Cascade Conference play. Coupeville had yet to win a game and lost by an average of 39 points.
