Prep boys basketball: Meadowdale defense hounds Glacier Peak

SNOHOMISH — Meadowdale senior guard Roger O’Neill hit two 3-pointers and scored 12 points and senior-laden Meadowdale held Glacier Peak to less than double digits in scoring in each of the first three quarters to take a 51-37 Wesco South victory Saturday at Glacier Peak High School.

“They played great defense,” Glacier Peak coach Brian Hunter said of Meadowdale. “(And) they got the shot they wanted every time.” Glacier Peak, in its first year of existence, started the season 3-0 before losing to Jackson on Friday.

Meadowdale, which boasts eight seniors, controlled the tempo of the game from the start against a Glacier Peak team that does not have a single senior.

“They (really) hounded the offensive boards,” Hill said.

Brandon Hill hit one 3-pointer and finished with 13 points to lead Glacier Peak. Drew Cummins chipped in 11 points for the Grizzlies.

“Meadowdale played the kind of game they wanted to,” Hill said. “… They played solid man to man defense.”

That defense held Glacier Peak to just 12 points in the first half and 18 points after the first three quarters.
