PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Lake Stevens wins with late surge

SNOHOMISH — With Lake Stevens holding a 27-21 lead after three quarters, Snohomish was able to close the gap to four points with less than five minutes remaining.

But the Vikings hit the throttle, going on a 17-2 run late in the fourth quarter to seal the Wesco North win Thursday night at Shohomish High School.

“It was a close game, it was 18-14 at halftime, and it was very competitive,” Snohomish head coach Ken Roberts said. ”But then things changed. I would say we turned the ball over 30 times, it may have been worse, but I would say 30 is a safe number. They got some transition buckets off that in the fourth quarter.”

Lake Stevens’ Meghan Warbis scored six of her 10 points in the final period.

“Their experience showed,” Roberts said. “They have some kids that are really tough, hard-nosed players. Warbis is one of those players.”
