ANACORTES — A scorching start helped the Anacortes boys’ basketball team move on in the bi-district playoffs Thursday after a clash with a county opponent.
Chase Cornett scored a season-high 23 points, Grayson Eaton added 13 points and the Seahawks beat Sedro-Woolley 66-55 in a loser-out game in the Bi-District 2A Tournament.
The win sends the Seahawks to matchup at 7 p.m. Saturday with Mountlake Terrace on the road.
Anacortes jumped out to a lead in the first quarter. The Seahawks led 34-10 at the end of that frame.
“Their focus and intensity in the first quarter was amazing,” Seahawks coach Brett Senff said of his players. “We had our biggest quarter of the year. ... I think we shot about 80%, and defensively we were in tune.”
Cornett led the way, surpassing the 21 points he scored a few games ago.
“In the last five or six games, he’s been active around the rim. He’s been solid and his effort has been 100% at all times. He’s relishing the moment,” Senff said.
Cameron Berow added 10 points for the Seahawks (12-9).
Senff said the Cubs made it a competitive game.
“They did a good job battling back,” he said.
Isaiah Guerero scored 16 points and Jerome Mathias added 15 points for the Cubs (9-12).
