The Mountlake Terrace Lady Hawks earned their first win of the season Tuesday with a 48-31 victory over the winless Cascade Bruins in a non-conference game played at Cascade High School.

Kierra Scott led Terrace with 14 points; Kayla Beaven scored 12 points while Lydia Prelow contributed 11 points in the victory.
The Hawks return home on Thursday, Dec. 6, when they host the Mariner Marauders at Mountlake Terrace High School; tipoff is set for 7:15 p.m.
