Warriors win in overtime


Herald Writer

EDMONDS – It was the type of situation teams hope for.

No time left, your team behind, and a chance to win the game with free throws.

Meadowdale got the chance in overtime Friday.

It turned out to be a heartbreaker.

Behind by two points and with three free throw opportunities, Meadowdale made just one and fell to Edmonds-Woodway 61-60 in a non-league boys basketball game.

In the first game of the doubleheader, the Meadowdale girls beat Edmonds-Woodway 81-32

The Warrior boys led most of the game, until Bryan Doty was ejected with 6:03 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Warriors were called for a technical foul. Meadowdale’s Tyler Chamberlin hit three free throws drawing the Mavericks within three points.

When the Mavericks got the ball back, Chamberlin iced a 3-pointer from the corner, which tied the score at 47-47.

Meadowdale’s Justin Dennis tied the score at the end of regulation play, stealing the ball underneath the Edmonds-Woodway basket with 1:10 left in the fourth quarter and laying it in to tie the score at 55-55.

The Warriors were unable to score on their last possession of the fourth quarter and the game went into overtime.

Dennis scored a game-high 15 points and teammate Chirs Rohrbach added 14.

Chirs Davis scored and Adam Zitzman scored 11 each for the Warriors.

Edmonds-Woodway may have won the boys game, but the Mavericks girls team rolled the Warriors in the first game.

“This game is the greatest,” Meadowdale coach Karen Blair said. “I wish we could have one of these (nights) every game. It was a victory, but for the whole school.”

The Mavericks never trailed in the contest, starting off with a 7-0 run before Edmonds-Woodway scored.

The Warriors got only as close as 13-10 with just under four minutes remaining in the first quarter, but eventually pulled away from the Warriors.

Meadowdale’s Anne Martin closed the quarter out by hitting a 3-point goal, putting the Mavericks up 25-11.

Maverick center Jennie Swerk dominated underneath the basket, scoring 18 points.

“She was very dominant inside,” Blair said. “We knew she was capable of it. She’s one of our hardest workers.

University of Washington bound Kristen O’Neill scored a game-high 22 points for the Mavericks.

“We need her to step up and score,” Blair said. “She did a good job of letting the game come to her.”

O’Neill also hit six 3-pointers in the game.

Edmonds-Woodway’s Kelsey Hitchner scored a team-high 15 points.

While the boys may have lost, Meadowdale took home the coveted rubber chicken trophy – given to the school who has the most points combined from a canned food drive and spirit during the game.
