Falcons dig in, fend off Issaquah 48-46

  • Written by Derek Johnson
It was the type of win that can serve as a building block to a season. Woodinville’s 48-46 win over Issaquah last Wednesday was a study in poise and grit. It featured a good opponent, grace under pressure, and an affirming end result – a Falcon victory.
“As I told the kids, we bent but we didn’t break,” Woodinville coach Kurt Melton said. “We showed some toughness and fought through some mistakes. This is something we can build on.”
Things got fun with 6:00 left in the fourth quarter. With the scored tied at 37, Woodinville’s Josiah Bush drained a three-pointer, giving the Falcons the three point lead.

Third quarter explosion leads Falcons over Issy

  • Written by Derek Johnson
A strange pall hung over the gym. The listless Lady Falcons seemed to go through the motions in the first half of their home game versus Issaquah. But then Woodinville exploded for a 26-0 run in the third quarter, putting away the Lady Eagles 59-44 last Wednesday night.  
“It’s all courtesy of Regan [Schenck],” Woodinville coach Scott Bullock said of his senior point guard. “We are really fortunate to have her and her firepower. She played poised and under control in that third quarter. I thought overall we were a little bit flat tonight. It wasn’t the most exciting game for me to watch as a coach. But it was a win and we’re happy about that.”
