EHS BOYS BASKETBALL: Lions clip Hornets’ wings
The Enumclaw High boys basketball team fell to Decatur on the road 62-37 Jan. 11, then hosted Auburn Mountainview Friday evening and suffered a heartbreaking 65-64 overtime setback on a festive night at Chuck Smith Gymnasium that saw a new crop of EHS athletic Hall of Fame inductees recognized.
The Hornets and Decatur squared off at Highline Community College, where Enumclaw’s D.J. Hitch put on a show for his older sister Heather, who is currently starting for the Thunderbirds’ women hoopsters, finishing with 16 points.
The encounter began innocently enough as at the end of the initial stanza the scoreboard read 14 apiece. Things quickly went south for EHS, though, as the Gators outpaced the Hornets 48-23 in what remained of the lopsided affair.
Before a rambunctious, Friday night crowd, the Hornets wrote a different story. The lead changed hands at least 10 times and only a gutsy extra frame performance by the Lions enabled them to escape from Enumclaw with a win. The loss dropped Enumclaw’s South Puget Sound League 3A mark to 1-2 and fourth place in the six team division.
Hitch and Jordan Jacobson knocked down 15 points each and Anthony Chynoweth and Brian Foerster had 11 each.
