Sedro-Woolley stops Falcons / Girls basketball

Sedro-Woolley started hot and never cooled off in a 76-39 win over the visiting South Whidbey High School girls basketball team Tuesday, Dec. 10.

The Falcons (2-2) face another tough opponent in their next game, unbeaten 3A Oak Harbor (4-0), which handed Sedro-Woolley (2-1) its only loss of the season 53-51 last week.

South Whidbey hosts the Wildcats at 6:45 p.m. Friday, Dec. 13.

The Knauer sisters (Kayla, 4; Madi, 2) scored all of South Whidbey’s first-quarter points in the loss to Sedro-Woolley. The Cubs countered with 9 from Mabel Gahan and raced to a 23-6 lead.

Emma Hodson and Arianna Briggs each scored 4 points for the Falcons in the second quarter, but Gahan added 9 more as Sedro-Woolley went up 40-18.

Madi Knauer scored 7 of her team high 13 points in the third period but the Cubs continued to pull away and led 60-29 heading into the fourth quarter.

Kayla Knauer finished with 8 points, Hodson 6, Isabelle Wood 6, Briggs 4 and Liz Haines 2.

Gahan tallied 26 for Sedro-Woolley.

Despite the loss, South Whidbey coach Jeff Hanson liked the improvement his team made.

“I’d like giant leaps, but baby steps work too,” he said.
