Cone had 11 for Cheney, Cassidy Hagel from Medical socring in all three games last the only players to crack double figures. Powerful Lakeside (7- 0,12-1), raced to a 124 first quarter lead and added to it in the second, leading at halftime 35-8. The Eagles, led by Jocelyn Cook-Cox's 16 points, continued the rampage that included a 14-0 fourth quarter. Ha- gel's eight were tops for the Cards. Photo by Paul Delaney Lake led her team in week. "Lakeside is a solid and very deep team that plays very aggressive and has great teamwork," Lundberg said. "However every team is beatable." Riverside (34, 4-8) was also quick out of the open- ing tip and led 14-2 after the first quarter and 24-9 at halftime. Hagel's 12 points again led Medical Lake. Julianna Trepanier win continued from page 1 only 3-pointer from Dylan Rushfeldt, trimmed it to a 35-34 game. Cole Soliday, who knocked down 11 points in the Lakeside game, got fouled while lofting a 3- point shot from the top of the arc with 10.5 seconds to play, But the guy who l own calls "his best free throw shooter" missed the first two tries. "When I saw him miss that second one that's when we went to a time- out and talked about it," Brown said. "(I told him) 'it's OK Cole,' and that kind of thing and re-mo- tivate him." That also al- lowed Brown to devise a play for a final shot. The advice didn't work as Soliday clanked anoth- er one and the weight of the world suddenly fell on his shoulders. Wagner quickly fouled the Blackhawk's Ryan Smedley with 9.2 seconds to play but he too missed his free throws at the op- posite end. Photo by Paul Delaney Tellas Johnson scored 12 points in both the Cardi- nals' first two games last week against Lakeside and Cheney. Here he drives to the basket against Cheney's JT Gould. Medical Lake (5-2, 84) controlled the rebound and Johnson was given the green light to get to the basket, if he could, or dish offto Wagner, which he did. "He (Wagner) shot that over the biggest guy on their team," Brown said. ALeague dual match.

To add more pain for Cheney, Medical Lake kept their spirit competi- tion record perfect at 5-0 by winning the voting and retained the Golden Feather trophy for an- other year. Against Lakeside (6-1, 11-2) Medical Lake lost the rebounding battle 43- 12 and that was a decid- ing factor in the second half where the Eagles outscored the Cardinals 26-19 and erased their 33-31 halftime lead.
