SEDRO-WOOLLEY — The Burlington-Edison boys’ basketball team notched another win Friday night, however, this victory may have been just a bit sweeter seeing how it was over Sedro-Woolley.
The Tigers pulled away late to secure the 51-32 Northwest Conference victory.
Sedro-Woolley (1-8, 6-10) was certainly game as the home team trailed by just seven points midway through the fourth quarter of the Chickenfest matchup.
“Rivalry games are always played tight,” Burlington-Edison coach Chas Kok said. “Sedro-Woolley came out and played hard, especially in the second quarter.”
The Tigers (8-0, 14-1) responded in the second half, particularly on the defensive end where Burlington-Edison held Sedro-Woolley to 10 points.
“We held them to seven points in the third quarter and three in the fourth,” Kok said. “Props to our guys defensively.”
Offensively, the Tigers were led by Jackson Reisner’s 21 points.
