Basketball: Inglemoor Girls at Stanwood

Inglemoor Girls at Stanwood Middle School

Traveling to Stanwood to play one of the strongest teams they’ve faced this season, the Inglemoor Vikings must have known that to have a chance at victory, they’d have to play their hearts out. That is exactly what they did. In the opening minutes of the game, Stanwood pulled out to a 3-6 lead, but with 2:30 left in the first quarter, the Vikings tied up the game at 8 points each. Inglemoor opened the second quarter with a 14-11 lead which they expanded to 16-11 before Stanwood fought back to a tie at 16 two minutes into the quarter. With a free-throw, the Vikings regained the lead and added another shot from the floor moments later. At halftime, Inglemoor was on top 20-18.

In the second half, Stanwood came out with a new game plan and the tide quickly turned. In less than a minute of play, Stanwood had pulled ahead 21-25, eventually building the lead to 23-33. But the Vikings were not ready to give up, and a pair of three-pointers midway through the half brought the score to 29-35. With their momentum going strong, the Vikings began the fourth quarter with shots from the paint by #1 and #35  to close the score to within a single shot, at 33-35. But Stanwood managed to hang onto their lead, and as the final minutes of the game slipped away, they scored an additional seven points to the Vikings’s two for a convincing win. Final Score: 36-42, Stanwood.
