EHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Chynoweth, Rabb spearhead comeback
February 1, 2012 · 10:31 AM
The Enumclaw High boys basketball squad split a pair of South Puget Sound League 3A games last week to move to 2-4 in league action.
Enumclaw beat last-place Peninsula High 56-55 Jan. 24, then fell to league-leading Decatur 67-58 Friday.
Against the hapless Seahawks, the Hornets won with a true team comeback effort as Tony Chynoweth and Sam Rabb had 11 points apiece to spearhead a second-half rally after EHS had fallen behind 33-24 at intermission.
It was junior guard Perry Rockwood who made the difference in the end. With seven seconds remaining and the Hornets trailing by two, Rockwood drained a 3-point basket. Rockwood finished with 10 points, five assists and three steals.
Friday, the Hornets, gave their esteemed visitors a run for their money and in fact were out in front of the Gators 30-25 at halftime. Decatur buckled down in the second 16 minutes of play and, despite Chynoweth and Drake Rademacher both finishing with 15 points, Enumclaw was outscored 42-28 in the second half.
Enumclaw will have a full dance card this week, as it attempts to wedge a couple of make-up encounters into its slate.
The Hornets traveled to Lakes Monday night and hosted Auburn Mountainview Tuesday. Enumclaw will play Bonney Lake Friday and Saturday, the latter contest being a make-up from Jan. 17.
These games against Bonney Lake will mark the end of the regular season, but the postseason awaits. Enumclaw’s seeding fate has not been decided.
