Squalicum’s Mitchell and Engelhart combine for 48 points in win

Damek Mitchell and Kendall Engelhart combined for 48 points to key Squalicum’s 64-56 victory over Enumclaw in the Sterling Shootout Tournament on Tuesday.

The Storm trailed by nine at halftime but made adjustments and outscored the Hornets 21-10 in the third quarter. Coach Dave Dickson said his team played with a lot of heart.

“I was really proud of our effort tonight on the floor,” Dickson said. “We found a way to battle back.”

The unsung hero of the game was Jacob Johnson, who had the task of checking 6-foot-7 wing Kaden Anderson and held him to 14 points.

Granger 56, Meridian 45 – Granger jumped out to a 23-9 lead in the first quarter and never looked back against Meridian. Camden Burgess was the lone bright spot for the Trojans, as he scored a game-high 16 points and played aggressive defense.

Marysville-Pilchuck 64, Ferndale 63 – Marysville-Pilchuck’s Raequan Battle hit the winning shot, the last of her game-high 36 points, as time expired to topple the Golden Eagles. Carson Genger hit a 3-pointer with 4.5 seconds left to give Ferndale a one-point lead, but Battle came down the court and shot over a double team from 10 feet to sink the dagger.

Mount Baker 74, Friday Harbor 67 – Grant Balvanz got back on track with a game-high 24 points to lead Mount Baker over Friday Harbor. Balvanz hit a clutch 3-pointer with three minutes left to put the Mountaineers up by two. TJ Bass had a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.

Sehome 56, Mountlake Terrace 55 – Austin Roberts hit the winning shot with 1.2 seconds left to give the Mariners the win. Sehome led by 12 in the fourth quarter, but Mountlake Terrace got hot from the 3-point line and took the lead with nine seconds left. Roberts got the ball in the key and buried the shot for his 13th point and a Sehome victory.

Lummi 45, Chief Kitsap Academy 44 – Keegan Jojola had a tip-in with eight seconds left to give Lummi the lead and eventually the win against Chief Kitsap Academy. The Blackhawks were working without senior Trazil Lane and were working out early-season rust but still managed to hold on.
