The No .3 tournament-seeded Mountlake Terrace Hawks staved off elimination from the District 1/2 2A Boys Basketball Tournament on Friday with a 70-58 victory over the Lakewood Cougars.

Jace Breakfield led all scorers in the game with 22 points for Terrace, 10 in the decisive fourth quarter; teammate Mason Christianson added 11 points in the win.

Lakewood, the 2A district tourney No. 7 seed, was led in scoring by the 21 points of Alex Jensen; Jackson Schultz contributed 15 points for the Cougars.

After a slow start — just 10 points in the first quarter — Terrace held a slim one-point lead at halftime and then took control of the game with a 39-28 second half scoring advantage to grab the victory.

Friday’s win sets up a Saturday, Feb. 16, showdown for the Hawks with the No. 5-seeded Burlington-Edison Tigers and a berth to the regional round of the 2A state tournament on the line. The contest will be a rematch of last year’s District 1/2 2A tourney third/fourth place game that Terrace came out on top 58-48.

The Hawks-Tigers loser-out contest on Saturday will take place at 1 p.m. at Mount Vernon High School.
