TACOMA - The favored Federal Way boys found themselves behind 8-2 in the first quarter against upstart Redmond, but quickly righted the ship. The Eagles were up 17-10 after a quarter, 37-16 at half and cruised to a 66-36 victory. Like to get up and down the floor, but most of the early scoring came from afar. They're one of two South Puget Sound league first-day winners already, Kentridge topping Mariner 65-50. Earlier Inglemoor edged Roosevelt 42-40 in a first-round game between KingCo Crown Division teams. May seem to violate the WIAA rule where league teams can't play each other early, but Roosevelt got here at the expense of the Greater St. Helen's league in the Vancouver area.
In girls play Moses Lake got off to a good start, 51-38 over South Kitsap. Carley Noyes was 10-13 from the field for 20 points, sophomore Jordan Loera had 16. Auburn-Riverside, back from 3A, whipped Eastlake 48-30 meaning two Wolves are in the loser's bracket. Traditional power Snohomish was up 33-12 at half over Bellarmine Prep and leads 49-29 with 3 minutes remaining. Final: 53-34.
