"Great road win for us tonight against a very well-coached and talented Everett team.

MOUNT VERNON — Courtney Perry hit a layup with seven seconds left to give Everett the win.
Everett's Sydney VanNess led all scorers with 14 points. Melissa Frein led Skagit Valley with 11 points and Josie Bocci hit a pair of 3-pointers on her way to nine points. Kailyn Allison added eight.
Skagit Valley fell to 3-8. Cardinals coach Deb Castle said the team is working hard but still finding its way.
"In a regular season we would've just completed our preseason schedule and getting ready for league play. We would just be getting our rotation down and everyone on the same page. But with us missing 28 days of having all 12 girls together, we are behind in finding out our roles and rotations," she said. "We are doing the best we can with defining roles and duties with the situation we have been dealt."
Everett is 4-3.
