The Hawks capped off an incredible season with a big playoff win over Shorewood, with the Hawks defeating the Stormrays 74-41. After trading two free throws for a three to start the game, the Hawks went on a ten point run to give them an early 12-3 lead off of buckets from Jaxon Dubiel, Zaveon Jones, and Gabe Towne. For the rest of the first quarter, Shorewood and Mountlake Terrace traded baskets, with the Hawks up 20-11 going into the second.
Shorewood started the second quarter on a quick run, which saw them cut the lead to just 6 off of two quick threes. However, the Hawks quickly responded, going on a 13-0 run to double up the score and to build a 19 point lead shortly before half-time. The Hawks high-powered offense that effectively put the game away in the second quarter. During this sequence, the Hawks saw their first dunk of the game, with Gabe Towne putting one away to extend the lead to 11. The run was finally broken by Jaden Marlow for Shorewood who scored 2 from the freethrow line to cut the lead to 17. At halftime, the Hawks lead 39-22.
To start the second half, Shorewood and the Hawks traded baskets until Shorewood broke out on 6-0 run to cut the lead to 41-30. The Hawks quickly responded however, going on their own 5-0 run to take the lead back up to 16 off of buckets by Jaxon Dubiel and Logan Tews and a free throw by Svayjeet Singh. It didn’t get much better for Shorewood, as the Hawks continued their run by scoring 9 straight points, capped off by a dunk by Dubiel, who landed on his back after the dunk and was called for tripping a Shorewood player, resulting in a double technical and boos from the Hawk’s home crowd. The Hawks entered the fourth quarter with a commanding 58-35 lead.
The fourth quarter was much of the same, with the Hawks limiting Shorewood to just 6 points in the quarter in addition to not allowing them to score for the final five minutes of the fourth quarter. The Hawks have not lost a game when limiting their opponents to under 10 points in at least one quarter. Jaxon Dubiel got another dunk, and the game ended with a dominating 33 point Hawks win. Dubiel led the scoring for the Hawks, finishing with 17 points on the game, closely followed by Tews who had 16 points on the game. Dubiel is now just 7 points off the Hawk’s all time record for most points scored in a season. This playoff win was their 20th win on the season, and extended their winning streak to 12, and in games against Wesco conference opponents to 19 games, dating back to late last season. The last conference team to beat them was Shorewood who they will play this Tuesday at home.
