Edmonds Community College rallied from a 16-point deficit to take a late, one-point lead against Shoreline Community College Saturday, but the Dolphins would prevail 63-58 in a NWAACC women’s basketball game Saturday at Shoreline Community College.
The Edmonds found itself in an early hole, though the Dolphins seemed to be making every shot even rushed and off-balanced ones. That deficit was 16 points midway into the first half.
Triton guard Jasmine McEachin took matters into her own hands and led Edmonds back to within five points (31-26) at intermission.
Edmonds continued to play well when the second half started and was twice one-point better than the Dolphins late. Unfortunately McEachin would have to sit for a couple of possessions after she was fouled hard driving to the hoop. That seemed to change the momentum and Shoreline would end the contest on a late run to win by five.
McEachin led Edmonds with 16 points and 11 rebounds. Danielle Smythe and Maile Keanu each contributed 13 points for the Tritons with Ellie Greene adding 8 points.
Edmonds is home twice this coming week. On Wednesday the team welcomes Olympic College with Everett coming to Seaview on Saturday. Both contests start at 5 p.m. Saturday will be the final game of the year for Edmonds.
