Carlson's 17 points lifts Ferndale


The Ferndale girls' basketball team defeated Anacortes 50-41 on Thursday, Feb. 6, at Anacortes High School.

The Golden Eagles (16-4, Northwest Conference 10-2) jumped out to a 20-8 lead over the Seahawks in the first quarter. Anacortes answered back with a 15-point second quarter, thanks in part to the outside shooting of Tania Daou. An 18-11 advantage in the third gave Ferndale all the cushion it would need, though, heading into the final quarter to hold off for the win.

"We had the advantage with our posts," Ferndale coach Mike Ivy said in a phone interview. "We didn't even get a field goal in the fourth quarter."

Hannah Carlson led all scorers with 17 points - 11 of which came from the free-throw line. Linsey Honeycutt tossed in 12 points and 14 rebounds, and Taryn Knutson added seven points and a team-high three assists.

"Hannah was 11 of 13 from the free-throw line, and I thought that broke their back," Ivy said. "She did a good job of scoring every quarter."

Daou led the Seahawks with 16 points in the loss.
