Both the boys and the girls Mountlake Terrace Hawks basketball teams were involved in nail-biter games on Wednesday – the boys’ squad did just enough to hold off the Kamiak Knights for a win while the girls’ team suffered a loss to the Oak Harbor Wildcats in overtime.
Khyree Armstead, Brendan Hayes and Mason Petersen all reached double-figures in scoring as the Hawks defeated the Knights 63-59 in a non-league boys basketball contest played Wednesday at Mountlake Terrace High School. Armstead led Terrace with 17 points; Hayes and Petersen added 14 and 12 points respectively in the victory.
Up at Oak Harbor High School, the Lady Hawks fell to the Wildcats in overtime by a score of 49-45. After leading throughout the first half, Terrace was outscored 33-22 in the second half and overtime period to drop their opening game of the 2017-2018 season.
Hawk fans will get a rare chance to see both the boys’ and girls’ teams in action back-to-back on Saturday as the squads match up against their counterparts at Lynnwood during an all-day hoops event at Lynnwood High School. The Hawk boys face the Royals at 5 p.m.; the girls follow at approximately 7 p.m.
