The Mountlake Terrace Hawks boys and girls basketball teams had very different fates Friday in their match-ups with the squads from Snohomish High School; the Hawk boys ran away with a 68-40 win over the Panthers while the Lady Hawks were bounced 57-23 by Snohomish.
The Hawk boys celebrated Senior Night with a runaway victory over the visiting Panthers at Mountlake Terrace High School. Khyree Armstead scored 20 points to lead Terrace; Mason Peterson added 15 points and Connor Williams came off the bench to score 11 points in the triumph.
With the win, Terrace improved their overall record to 18-1 and their 2A/3A Wesco League mark to 10-1, good enough for a share of first place as the Shorecrest Scots – previously undefeated in league play – loss on Friday to Arlington.
On the girls’ side, ten players scored for Snohomish as the Panthers enjoyed an easy victory over the Hawks at Snohomish High School. Jazz Zenk led Terrace in scoring with 10 points in the loss.
