Burlington-Edison 42, Anacortes 39
This year’s Tiger-Hawk Challenge was a scrappy game as the Burlington-Edison and Anacortes boys’ basketball teams clashed on Wednesday, Dec. 15.
When the final horn sounded, the Tigers emerged victorious, 42-39.
“It was a grind-it-out game with not much offense,” Senff. “We did not run our offense in the fourth, which led to multiple turnovers for us.”
The Seahawks led 18-17 at halftime and 34-27 at the end of the third quarter.
The fourth quarter, however, was all Tigers as they turned up the defense and held the Seahawks to five points.
Connor Anderson and Zach Watson clamped down defensively on the Seahawks.
“Watson and Anderson turned up the defense in the fourth quarter and we didn’t respond well,” Senff said. “They are very tough-minded players and play the game the right way. We’re slowly getting there as a team, but this one hurts.”
Von Hagel, the only Seahawk to score in the fourth quarter, led the team with 16 points, 12 of which came from behind the 3-point arc. Hayes chipped in 12 points.
