The undefeated Arlington High School girls basketball team beat Jackson High School 70-40 in a 4A Wesco Conference crossover game at Arlington High School on Friday, January 11, 2013.
"The Eagles jumped on Jackson early, racing out to a 12-0 lead behind a strong defense and hot shooting and never allowed the Timberwolves within striking distance in a 70-40 victory in the Wesco 4A crossover game," reports Aaron Swaney of the Everett Herald.
"Lindsay Brown scored seven points and, along with teammate Ronnie Ladines, controlled the paint in a dominating first quarter performance to help the Eagles jump out to a 22-6 lead."
"Jackson's Faithaleen Lopez-Flores scored seven points to help the Timberwolves end the first half on an 11-2 run to cut the lead to 13, but Arlington hit three 3s and outscored Jackson 13-6 to open the second half and build its lead back up to 20."
"Jackson played without star guard Kelli Kingma once again and Boyer said after the game that there's a good chance they may not see her for the rest of the season. Kingma, who had knee surgery on Dec. 27, is recovering well and rehabbing her knee but the timetable doesn't look promising."
"Jackson--Brooke Kingma 3, Faithaleen Lopez-Flores 7, Sierra Anderson 12, Shailanna Clinton 1, Mary Charleston 2, Imari Clinton 2, Sierra Hagans 4, Rachel Nies 0, Anna Johnson 0, Martina Mason 2, Drew Lochnane 8, Emily Boyd 0. Arlington--Taylor Graham 14, Veronica Ladines 17, Lindsay Brown 17, Krista Showalter 8, Emma Janousek 1, Jessica Ludwig 4, Winter Brown 3, Jayla Russ 6, Marissa Swegle 0. 3-point goals--Graham 4, L. Brown 2, Showalter 1, Kingma 1, Lopez-Flores 1, W. Brown 1, Russ 1."
Jackson High School's girls basketball team is now 7-2 in 4A Wesco South Conference play and 8-5 overall.
The Artlington High School girls basketball team is undefeated with a 9-0 4A Wesco North Conference record and a 14-0 overall record.
