Kamiak knocks off first-place Terrace

MUKILTEO – Senior wing-man Sean Hermes has been averaging 17.5 points per game for Kamiak. He eclipsed that in the first quarter alone, scoring 21 of his game-high 28 points, leading all scorers and Kamiak to a 64-55 boys basketball win over Wesco South rival Mountlake Terrace Friday.

Hermes came out strong defensively as well, grabbing two of his seven steals in the first couple of minutes and setting the tone for the first half.

But Kamiak used just six players and when the weary Knights came back from intermission, the Hawks were waiting to rush them.

Mountlake Terrace hit a 3-pointer to start the second half and their climb back, scoring 17 in the third quarter alone, just five less than their 22-point first half.

The Hawks kept the pressure on until the final minutes, cutting the Knights’ lead to 58-55 with two minutes left, when Kamiak junior point-guard Ben Iddins was fouled. He went to the line, scoring both points. Junior post Rahidi Marere was next, going 1-for-2 on his first trip to the line, then 2-for-2 on his next, sealing the win for Kamiak.
