The Edmonds-Woodway girls’ basketball team got contributions from virtually all of its members enroute to a 64-50 victory over Kamiak on Wednesday night on the Warriors’ home court.
The offense was hot from the get-go, as Madeline Kasper drained a three-pointer after Sidney Donaldson won the opening tip off. Angela Woods would also contribute from beyond the arc, as she converted on her first three attempts.
“We had a chance to play everybody in the first half, which was good,” said head coach Duane Hodges. “(Kamiak) switched up the defense on us a little bit which threw us off.”
Donaldson also stepped up for the Warriors, notching 14 points and collecting 10 rebounds.
The Knights struggled early in the game, particularly in the second quarter, and entered halftime trailing 31-17. The Knights turned on the offense in the second half as they scored 33 points, but the Warriors’ lead proved to be enough to secure a victory.
Freshman guard Maddy Nealey also contributed to the winning effort, as she converted on her first three-point attempt of the game.
“We have two weeks off, and the first two games coming back from our break are killers on the road, so I don’t think they’re going to have a hard time working hard,” added coach Hodges. “I was just glad we had a chance to play a lot of the girls.”
