Squalicum girls basketball struggles with Mountlake Terrace’s press

Mountlake Terrace’s defense was too much for Squalicum as the Storm fell 51-49 Thursday at Squalicum High School.

Squalicum had trouble breaking the Hawks’ press. Squalicum coach Vic Wolffis said Mountlake Terrace’s defensive pressure forced his team into too many mistakes.

“We don’t feel real good about this one,” Wolffis said. “There were large chunks of the first and third quarters where we were turning the ball over.”

Carmi Fenner led the Storm with 12 points. Chalae Wolters didn’t play because of a foot injury.
