Falcons win season opener in basketball

The South Whidbey boys basketball team beat Cedar Park Christian 51-35 Tuesday in their first game of the winter season.

Scott Stallman led scoring for the Falcons with 19 points, followed by Riley Newman with 12. Jeff Brasko and Adrian Cortes contributed eight each. Stallman was five for seven inside the paint and Newman five for five from the free throw line.

"Adrian took two charges and did some really nice things for us inside, and Jeff played a great game for us," said Falcon coach Scott Collins. "We handled their pressure well and the kids did a great job of taking advantage of our scoring opportunities."

At 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 4, the boys welcome the Tenino Beavers to Erikson Gym. At noon on Saturday, the Friday Harbor Wolverines arrive — the girls game follows at 1:30 p.m.
