3A District 1 playoffs elimination game

Mountlake Terrace defeated Ferndale 38-34

The Hawks’ Maile Armstrong sunk a tough 3-pointer as the shot clock buzzer went off with 31 seconds left in the game, giving Mountlake Terrace a 38-34 lead and all but clinching what had been a close back-and-forth game vs. Ferndale. The 38-34 victory keeps the Hawks’ season alive as they now advance to play Snohomish Saturday at Everett Community College at 12:45 p.m.,  in a winner-to-regionals, loser-out game.

The Hawks looked to be in good shape early by grabbing their largest lead of the night, 20-11 midway through the second quarter. Ferndale, however, took the momentum away by outscoring the Hawks 11-0 over the final 3:18 of the half, thanks to three different players connecting on 3-point shots as well as another field goal in which the shooter stepped on the 3-point line. Ferndale led 22-20 at the half.

The second half saw five different lead changes, three of which took place over the final 3:35 of the game. Lindsay Ho’s layup with 2:15 left in the game gave the Hawks a 35-34 lead. It was an advantage Terrace would not relinquish as the score remained unchanged, other than Armstrong’s big basket to close out the game.
