ARLINGTON — The Eagles remained undefeated so far, after dealing the Panthers a 60-51 defeat on Tuesday, Dec. 18, at Arlington High School.
The Eagles are No. 1 in the Wesco 4A North division and the game against Snohomish was an in-league contest, which is good for Arlington as it brings their league record up to 3-0.
Although they pulled out a victory, the Eagles were just a step ahead of the Panthers, who kept pace with the Eagles’ scoring. The first quarter was just slightly in Arlington’s favor as they led Snohomish 16-12. Their 5-foot-10 guard Gavin Smoke and 6-foot guard Bradey Brummel made some great plays in the first quarter, both assisting in goals scored, as 6-foot-5 senior Terry Dawn scored several times, including twice on free throws in the first quarter. Dawn scored a total of 29 points by the end of the game and had grabbed 10 rebounds. Those rebounds would prove essential to the success of the game as seen when Snohomish came within a few goals of tying the game.
Dawn led the scoring for the Eagles with 29 points, while AJ Passalacqua scored 10 points. Smoke scored six points — two 3-pointers — Noah Jones scored five points, Kaleb Bryson and Bradey Brummel scored four points each and Nate Lewis scored two. Bryson scored one 3-pointer, Dawn scored three 3-pointers and Smoke scored two.
Arlington has won seven games straight and now faces Shorecrest away on Friday, Dec. 28, at 7:15 p.m.
