Going into the night the Shoreline Community College
Dolphins and the Edmonds Community College Tritons knew it would be a battle to
the end. The Dolphins came in looking to upset the Tritons on their Sophomore
night and last home game of the season. The women’s teams played first in quite
the match up to the end. The Tritons pulled out the win with a 68-67 finish.
Directly afterwards the men’s game didn’t finish quite as close with the
Dolphins falling to the Tritons 99-80.
In a close game all the way through the Dolphin Women’s
Basketball team hung in there with their hard working defense. They were able
to cause 23 Triton turnovers that led to 19 of their points. It seemed even
with 5 players scoring in double digits it was not enough to end on top. The Tritons bench players were able to light
it up scoring 33 of the teams points.
After a great fight the Dolphins were not able to hold on.
Directly following the men’s teams took the court, both
teams looking to further secure their playoff hopes. After the loss Shoreline
no longer seems to solely hold it’s NWAACC playoff destiny. However, Edmonds was able to clench the
Northern Region Title and guaranteed 1st seed into the NWAACC
The Dolphin’s Men’s Basketball team had high hopes for a
late push to claim the Northern Region 4th seed and move forward
into NWAACC post season play. Last nights loss has changed those hopes. Moving
into the last 3 games of the regular season the top teams in the Northern
Region are all going to be challenged by each other as they fight for the last
two spots into the NWAACC Championship. Only two games separate Peninsula,
Everett, Bellevue and Shoreline and all have a tough last 3 games ahead of
It is clear the race for the NWAACC Championships is going
to come down to the last game of regular season. The Dolphins are set to take on Peninsula
College this Wednesday in their last home game of the season. Be sure to come
support your Dolphins as they fight to finish their seasons strong. The women
will tip off at 5:30 pm and the men shortly after at 7:30 pm on Wednesday
February 20th in Shoreline Gym.
