MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — The first time the Edmonds-Woodway and Snohomish boys basketball teams met this season, the Panthers came away with a 55-50 win.
Thursday night the Warriors got a little revenge when it really counted.
In a loser-out game, Edmonds-Woodway led most of the way, defeating the Panthers 66-57 in the 4A District 1 third-place game at Mountlake Terrace High School. The Warriors will play host to Bothell in a winner-to-state regionals game Saturday.
“We really worked at denying the first pass,” Edmonds-Woodway head coach Steve Call said. “We weren’t going to let them get any transition buckets. They got a lot of transition buckets against Mount Vernon their last game. ... We executed well on the offensive end. We got the shots we wanted to get.”
Jason Smarr had 21 points to lead Edmonds-Woodway (15-9 overall), which led by as many as 19 points in the contest. Fellow senior Travis Bakken had a double-double with 21 points and 10 rebounds.
The senior post added six blocks for the Warriors.
“Travis and Jason have been our go-to guys,” Call said. “When Jason’s hitting well they’ve got to extend out and Travis, he’s just a workhorse. I couldn’t be more proud of our guys. We haven’t been in this spot in a few years.”
Snohomish (13-11 overall) got off to a good start and extended its lead to five points early on. But Edmonds-Woodway battled back and had a one-point lead by the end of the first quarter.
The Warriors took control in the second quarter, outscoring the Panthers 22-10.
The victory sets up an Edmonds-Woodway-Bothell rematch and gives the Warriors a chance to return to the state tournament for the first time since 2008. Bothell defeated Edmonds-Woodway 68-50 on Dec. 28. Bothell advanced to the rematch by defeating Roosevelt 50-45 in the Kingco third-place game on Thursday night.
The Edmonds-Woodway girls team, which beat Monroe in the third-place game before the boys team won, also will play host a Kingco-Wesco crossover game Saturday night. The E-W girls face Eastlake
