With a fourth-quarter comeback, the Meadowdale Mavericks stole a 41-33 road win from the Cedarcrest Red Wolves on Tuesday in a Wesco League girls basketball matchup played at Cedarcrest High School in Duvall.
The Mavericks trailed the Red Wolves 30-28 going into the final quarter, but clamped down on defense to snatch the victory. Cedarcrest was held to just three fourth-quarter points, enabling the Mavs to grab the win.
Kaisha Stark led Meadowdale with 14 points in the game; the Red Wolves’ Kate Townley matched that scoring output, but it wouldn’t be enough as Cedarcrest had its seven-game winning streak snapped by the Mavs.
The win raised the Mavs’ overall record to 11-3, 7-1 in Wesco League play — good enough for second place in the 15-team 2A/3A Wesco League standings.
It’s Meadowdale’s turn to host the annual rivalry Rubber Chicken games this year; the boys’ and girls’ basketball doubleheader will take place on Friday, Jan. 24, with the Mavs’ girls hosting the Lady Warriors from Edmonds-Woodway in the nightcap. Tipoff is scheduled for 7:15 p.m.
In other Meadowdale sports on Tuesday, the Mavs’ boys swim team was dunked by the Cascade Bruins 116-49 at the Lynnwood Pool.
