Falcon senior Parker Collins scored a game-high 19 points to power the South Whidbey boys basketball team to a 56-43 win over Granite Falls on Friday.

The Falcons held a 21-14 lead by halftime and were able to extend it to 38-30 in the third quarter. The victory was South Whidbey’s second consecutive win, both of which were away.

South Whidbey scored 21 points on seven three-pointers. Collins led the way with three from the perimeter, followed by junior Donovan Miller who hit a pair. Freshman Lewis Pope and junior Ricky Muzzy each scored one three-pointer as well.

Chandler Sutton, a Falcon senior, chipped in 15 points as South Whidbey’s second-highest scorer.

Granite Falls (3-7 Cascade Conference, 6-10 overall) was led by Daniel Matalomani’s 16 points.

The Falcons (4-6 conference, 7-9 overall) may be peaking at the right time. As of press time, before the Falcons hosted the Archbishop Murphy Wildcats on Jan. 27, South Whidbey had won four of its past five games.

The 1A District 1 tournament begins Feb. 9, and only the top three 1A teams from the Cascade Conference qualify. South Whidbey is in third place among the four 1A teams in the league, and is well ahead of Cedar Park Christian (0-9 conference, 5-10 overall).
