Eagle girls in a rout, play at state Thursday night

SHORELINE – It was such a mismatch it was hard to believe both teams had automatic bids to state.

Arlington’s smothering full-court press never allowed No. 6-seeded Lake Washington to get into its offense, as the Eagles demolished the Kangaroos 56-32 Saturday in a game that wasn’t even that close. Arlington, seeded No. 3, will play a state quarterfinal game Thursday at 7:15 p.m. in the Tacoma Dome against the winner between No. 12 Capital and No. 5 Shorecrest. The Eagles jumped out to a 9-0 lead and extended it to 21-5. Hailey Hiatt scored twice in a row to make it 25-7 at halftime.

Josey Stupey assisted to Makenzie Gage then Gage returned the favor and the rout was on in the third. Hiatt connected on a 3 and Keira Marsh drove to the hoop twice to make it 43-13 after three periods. Coach Joe Marsh emptied the bench in the fourth, and it looked like he was attempting not only to play everyone, but to see if they could all score.

Stupey passed to Abbey Hassing for two, Abby Schwark hit a bucket, and Sophie Willis hit a 3 as the shot clock buzzer went off.

Marsh scored 17 points, and Hiatt added 13.
