Cedarcrest’s girls and boys took on former Cascade Conference rival Cedar Park Christian last night on the road at CPC’s campus in Bothell, and both teams posted wins.
In the boys’ game that followed the girls’ victory, Cedarcrest broke out to an early lead and took command in the third, outscoring Cedar Park 13-3 in that frame, posting a 50-37 win over the Eagles in the non-conference game. Chris Busch scored 15 for Cedarcrest in the victory while Brennan LeBlanc added nine.
Next up for both the Red Wolves boys and girls are the Arlington Eagles as the teams return to Wesco play. The girls are home this coming Tuesday and the boys are away at Arlington next Wednesday. Both games start at 7:15 p.m. and the boys’ game is being webstreamed by TCSN Sports. We’ll have a link to that for you here next week.

Red Wolve boys survive in OT: Cedarcrest overcame a slow start early to force overtime, then held on in the extra session to grab a hard-fought 63-62 win last night up north in Bellingham over the Northwest Conference’s Sehome Mariners. Chris Busch’s three-pointer with two seconds left in overtime was the dagger that lifted Cedarcrest to the victory.
“Whew!! We had to earn that one but well worth the trip north,” Red Wolves coach Joe Ayers told the SVSJ by email. “A really great team OT win for us. We didn’t play a great game but found a way to win.”
Busch’s dramatic three capped off another strong effort for the senior; he finished with 16 points, six rebounds and four assists, and was aided by 10-point efforts from Emmett Turner, Shawn Deming and Nicolo Cammarano. Turner also added nine rebounds.
CHS is now 2-0 on the season and has a pair of road games next week – a non-counting Wesco contest against Archbishop Murphy at their place in Everett on Wednesday, followed by a date with former Cascade Conference rival Cedar Park Christian next Friday in Bothell.
