The West Seattle Girls Basketball team continued their dominance of the Metro conference as they dispatched Garfield 55-39 at home Friday night and improved their winning streak to 9 games. The Wildcats 15-2 overall, are undefeated in the Metro Conference and have moved up to #2 in the State in MaxPrep rankings.
As good as the Wildcats are, the Garfield Lady Bulldogs came to play and gave West Seattle an exciting first half.
Garfield used their speed and precision passing on offense to keep West Seattle a bit off balance for the first 16 minutes. On defense, Garfield was hungry, disrupting the Wildcats with a series of fast paced steals. At the half, Garfield stayed within reach as they went into the half down 23-14 to the Wildcats.
West Seattle came out of half-time and showed why they continue to win. With a team full of weapons, the Wildcats turned to Junior Lexi Ioane and Senior Emily Fiso to take the lead. Ioane scored 12 and Fiso netted 10, covering 22 of the teams 32 second half points.More ›
