Storm never get started, fall to Tamanawis


Squalicum's boys' basketball team couldn't pick up the home win as the Storm fell to Tamanawis 60-37 on Friday, Feb. 7.

Damek Mitchell and Blake Youtsey combined for 23 of the team's 37 points but the Storm couldn't get going.

"We came out flat," Squalicum coach Dave Dickson said in a phone interview. "We certainly had our chances in the first half and we just didn't play our best game."

The Storm were only down eight at halftime, but Tamanawis started the second half stronger than the first.

"They played well and defended us well and we didn't respond as well as we should have," Dickson said. "We made an effort but we just didn't come out on all cylinders."

The Storm (11-8, NWC 7-5) face Anacortes on Tuesday, Feb. 11, on the road to finish the regular season.
