KETCHIKAN (KDN) — The Anacortes High School Seahawks rocked some steady scoring during all four quarters Friday evening in its 68-52 victory over the West Anchorage Eagles during the Clarke Cochrane Christmas Classic basketball tournament at Ketchikan High School.
The win, anchored by 17-point performances by Cort Senff and Kaeden Flynn, earned Anacortes a spot in the tournament’s championship game on Saturday evening.
The Washington-state based Seahawks outscored West Anchorage in all but the fourth quarter, during which the Eagles soared for 21 points with the help of seven points each from Devin Mong and Diondre McMorris.
Mong was the high-scorer for West Anchorage, recording 16 points on evening. McMorris hit three 3-pointers while tallying 15 points for the Eagles.
At the half, Anacortes held a comfortable 34-21 lead and expanded it to a 50-31 margin by the start of the fourth quarter with additional double-figure offense by Evan Rodriguez (14 points in the game) and Tyler Blouin (13).
The Seahawks couldn’t match the Eagles’ 21 points in the fourth quarter, but the 18 added to their total was more than enough to secure the second-round win.
West Anchorage will play in the third place contest at 5:45 p.m. on Saturday at the Clarke Cochrane gymnasium.
