Prep playoff roundup: Snohomish girls stifle Meadowdale to advance

SNOHOMISH — The Snohomish girls basketball team held visiting Meadowdale to three points in the first quarter and raced out to a 14-point lead as the Panthers knocked off the Mavericks 42-26 in a first-round 3A Northwest District tournament game Friday.

Kyra Beckman had a team-high 12 points to lead Snohomish and combined with teammate Sam Beeman to hold Meadowdale’s Lily Williams to just two points.

“We executed really well at the start of the game,” Panthers coach Ken Roberts said. “It was a team effort. I think the whole team played well.”

The Panthers (19-2 overall) will play Stanwood on Tuesday in a tournament semifinal contest at Mountlake Terrace High School.

“With them it’s always slowing them down offensively,” Ken Roberts said of the Spartans. “They’re always really good offensively.”

Alicia Morrison scored a game-high 13 points for the Mavericks (9-13). Meadowdale travels to Arlington for a loser-out game Tuesday.
