The Edmonds-Woodway Warriors won their fifteenth game of the season on Wednesday with a 70-23 ambush of the Mountlake Terrace Hawks in a Wesco League skirmish played at Edmonds-Woodway High School.
The 15 wins is the most for a Warrior squad in the regular season since the 2014-2015 team finished with a mark of 16-4.
Wednesday’s victory came with relative ease as the Warriors outscored Terrace 29-3 in the first quarter and was never challenged the rest of the way. The only points for the Hawks during the first eight minutes was a 3-pointer by Nohea Morrison.
After E-W built a 49-10 advantage at halftime, the second half was played with a “mercy rule” running clock.
The Warriors’ Adrienne Poling led all scorers in the contest with 21 points. Ingrid Fosberg and Bekah Dasalla-Good added 16 and 10 points respectively for E-W.
With three games remaining, the Warriors will have plenty of chances to match or go beyond the regular season win total produced by the 2014-2015 squad. E-W will next face the Meadowdale Mavericks on Friday, Jan. 26, 7:15 p.m. at Meadowdale High School.
The Hawks, still holding out hope of slipping into the District 1/2 Girls Basketball Tournament next month, will next host the Lynnwood Royals on Friday; tip-off at Mountlake Terrace High School is slated for 7:15 p.m.
