Lynnwood shocks Knights, 49-46

LYNNWOOD – Kamiak’s seven game winning streak came to a sudden halt Thursday night when the Knights lost to the Lynnwood Royals 49-46 in a Wesco South battle.

The Royals also stopped Kamiak’s shot at clinching a district berth on Senior Night on its home floor.

Lynnwood trailed 46-45 with thirty seconds remaining when Mo Carrero scored on a driving layin, putting the Royals up by one.

The Royals immediately fouled Kamiak to put leading scorer Sean Hermes on the free-throw line.

Hermes, who scored 22 points, missed the front end of a one-and-one and Lynnwood’s Maurice Baldwin grabbed the rebound and was immediately fouled.

With a foul to give, Lynnwood took the ball out of bounds and found an open Carrero, who was quickly fouled.

Carrero hit both free throws, leaving the Knights with eight seconds remaining for one final shot.

After a timeout, the Royals came out with a zone defense, confusing Kamiak, who was unable to get a decent look at the basket and ended up with a desperation shot at the buzzer that fell short.

“We decided to switch it up and it paid off for us tonight” Lynnwood assistant coach Darryl McNeal said, referring to the defensive switch from man to zone.

It was a big win for the Royals (5-13 in league, 5-15 overall) and a bigger loss for the Knights (12-5, 14-5).

“Mo Carrero played really big for us tonight and the seniors played a heckuva ball game. They were real confident and produced some big things for us,” McNeal said.

The Knights can still clinch a berth with a win or a Mariner loss.
