CHS basketball splits regular season finales with Ed-Wood, set to host playoff games

Hoops now. Cedarcrest High School’s girls’ basketball team held off a late rally last night to post a great win on Senior Night that should propel them into the postseason on a strong note.

Kat Townley led CHS with 10 points as they overcame a 20-8 stretch run by visiting Edmonds-Woodway to take the 42-39 win over the Warriors on a night the Red Wolves recognized senior Helena Van Ess. Van Ess, the lone senior on the team, chipped in two points. “It was senior night for us and like most senior nights, it was emotional before the game and throughout. The team really wanted to win this game for Helena,” CHS coach Brad Knowles told us by email. “We knew Edmonds-Woodway is a very good team and that we would have to play a great game from start to finish.”

CHS with the win locked up the seventh seed into the Northwest District tournament – they finished with an RPI computer ranking of .6597, just below sixth-place Sammamish – and will host 10th-seed Blaine tomorrow in a loser out game at Cedarcrest. Game time is 7:00 p.m.

Red Wolve boys fall: Despite a double-double of 19 points and 10 rebounds from Kian Pegueros-Warren, Cedarcrest’s boys fell in their regular season finale to Edmonds-Woodway, dropping a 68-51 result at Edmonds-Woodway High School.

Shawn Deming added 14 for Cedarcrest, who too locked up a seventh seed, and will host 10th-seed and arch-rival Archbishop Murphy for a loser-out game in the opening round of the 2A Northwest playoffs Thursday at 7:00 at Cedarcrest. The two teams have played twice already this year, with each team winning one on the other’s home floor, so this could be a tough challenge for the Red Wolves.

Shiloh Zevenbergen led Ed-Wood with 22 points.
