South Whidbey clobbers Chimacum / Boys basketball

Is the South Whidbey High School boys basketball team that good or is Chimacum that bad?

Probably a lot of both as the Falcons smoked the visiting Cowboys 85-13 in South Whidbey’s season opener Wednesday, Dec. 4.

The Falcons (1-0) play another non-league game against an Olympic League school when they host Port Townsend (0-1) at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6. Bush (0-0) visits at 12:30 p.m. Saturday.

South Whidbey features a roster of seven seniors and a bushel of multi-year letter winners. Chimacum’s squad has only two seniors and half are sophomores.

All 10 of the Falcons who played against Chimacum scored at least 4 points. Only three Cowboys scored in the game.

South Whidbey crushed Chimacum early, racing to a 29-3 first-quarter lead.

Carson Wrightson scored 8 points, Nick Young 7, Kole Nelson 5 and Luke Rookstool 4 to ignite the explosive start.

The Cowboys scored 8 of their 13 points in the second quarter but it was not nearly enough as South Whidbey collected 28 and led 57-11 at the break.

Jacob Ng paced the Falcons with 8 points, including a 3-ball, in the period. Young had 5, Wrightson and Sterling Patton 4 each and Dexter Jokinen a 3-pointer.

South Whidbey limited Chimacum to only 2 second-half points and none in the third quarter.

Five points from Young and a 3-pointer from Patton helped South Whidbey push its lead to 72-11.

Levi Buck and Brady Hezel each hit two hoops in the fourth quarter and Jokinen added another 3-ball.

Young led all scorers with 19 points. Wrightson and Ng each finished with 15. Patton had 7, Jokinen 6, Rookstool 6, Nelson 5, Cody Eager 4, Hezel 4 and Buck 4.

Chimacum sank only five field goals in the game, and three were from beyond the arc. Clayton Smith paced the Cowboys with 6 points.
