The Mountlake Terrace girls basketball team used a big fourth quarter comeback Friday night to shoot down the first-place Shorewood T-Birds, 60-55, at Mountlake Terrace High School.
The Hawks were led by the 23 points of Samantha Romanowski; Maddie Kristjanson added 11 for Terrace. Shorewood’s Masha Shtikel led the T-Birds in scoring with 17, while teammate Lily Gustafson had 13.
Terrace improved its record to 4-7 in Wesco league play, 7-11 overall, and the team has won three of its last four games. Shorewood (8-3 in league play, 13-5 overall) had sole position of first place in the Wesco 3A South conference going into the match-up with the Hawks; the loss drops them into a share of the lead with Glacier Peak, 34-30 winners over Meadowdale Friday night.
The Hawks’ next action is set for Monday night against Shorecrest, starting at 7:15 p.m. It’s the final home game for Mountlake Terrace this season; the Hawks Live Sports Network will broadcast it live on MLTnews.com starting at 7:05 p.m.
