The game didn’t start well for Bothell. Down 0-7 to start the game and down a big 14 in the second quarter. The Lady Cougars fought back to take the lead going into the 4th quarter. In the 4th the score went back and forth with neither team being able to pull away or establish any type of offensive rhythm.
Over the final minutes Jones, Corosdale and Sophomore Jayda Dixon went 10 for 10 from the foul line keeping Bothell in the game. Down 2 with under a minute left Corosdale hit a big 3 from the right wing to put the Cougars up 1. But game wasn’t decided until the final seconds when Dixon came from behind to steal the ball away from Eastlake star Gina Marxen as she was streaking down the right side of the court, down 1 with 6 seconds to go. Marxen had given Bothell fits all game long with her deep 3s and her left handed drives (she can touch it off the glass with the best of them). Marxen fouled Dixon after the steal and the Bothell sophomore hit both free throws to put BHS up 3 for the final score.
Final score: Bothell 68 Eastlake 65
Season record: 5-0
