Turks’ trap defense foils Falcon girls basketball
The Sultan Turks stifled the South Whidbey girls basketball team Friday night in a 51-22 win at South Whidbey High School.
The Turks held the Falcons to five points in the first half behind a full-court trap defense that forced plenty of turnovers and quick layups. At halftime, Sultan held a 28-5 lead and kept up the pace on offense in the second half.
Falcon junior Abby Hodson and freshman Megan Drake tied as the team’s leading scorers at six points each.
South Whidbey has yet to win in Cascade Conference play, while the victory boosted Sultan to 3-2 in conference and 4-6 overall.
