Cedar Park Christian’s girls basketball team poured in 20 points in the second quarter of a match against the Falcons in Bothell on Tuesday, taking a 28-14 lead at halftime and ran away against the visiting South Whidbey squad.

The Falcons had no answer for the Cougars’ Kristen Barclay, who powered Cedar Park Christian with 18 points, including a trio of three-pointers. South Whidbey’s leading scorer was sophomore Kinsey Eager with eight points, followed by sophomores Emily Turpin and Kacie Hanson with five points a piece.

Both squads were tied early, entering the second quarter knotted at 8-8. Then the Cougars erupted to double up the Falcons and never lost the double-digit lead.

Losing to fellow Cascade Conference 1A school Cedar Park Christian dropped South Whidbey into a near tie with another 1A squad, Sultan. The Falcons and Sultan Turks are both 3-6 in conference games and split their head-to-head series this season. South Whidbey has a slight edge with a 4-10 record overall.

Only the top three 1A teams from the league advance to the 1A District 1 tournament that started Feb. 9.
