Hawks fall to Marysville-Pilchuck 53-45, fall to 8-2 overall

By Kennedy Cooper

The Hawks suffered a tough loss on Monday, January 7 to the Marysville Pilchuck Tomahawks, the only undefeated 3A team in Wesco, 51-42.

The Tomahawks offense was firing on all cylinders scoring 18 points in the first quarter and 17 points in the second quarter. The leading scorer for the Tomahawks was RaeQuan Battle, a University of Washington basketball commit, who scored 25 points.

Matching up with Battle and the Tomahawks is already tough enough, but missing strong defender Jace Breakfield, and key scorer Mason Christianson, who both were out with injury, didn’t make it any easier.

Terrace did, however, keep Pilchuck from making any field goals in the 4th quarter. Their 5 points were scored strictly from the free throw line. The fourth quarter was the best offensive for the Hawks, scoring 17 and closing the gap. 

Mason Peterson led the Hawks in scoring with 21 points.

Terrace will play on the road Wednesday, January 9 against Oak Harbor, 7:15 p.m. tip off, at Oak Harbor High School.
