Play-in games await Triton hoops on Saturday
BELLINGHAM -- Two different outcomes on Wednesday night resulted in the same situation for both Edmonds CC basketball teams -- play-in games to determine their playoff fate. The women and men will go on the road and must win on Saturday to secure their spot in the NWAC Championship Tournament.
Women's hoops had a tough task in Bellingham; they had to beat North Region champion Whatcom CC to punch their ticket to the postseason. That did not happen. The Tritons fell to the Orcas 83-72, as the Orcas pulled away in the fourth quarter. Edmonds could not overcome 28 turnovers. Jerzie Pluid was the top scorer with 18 points.
They are pitted against a familiar opponent in rival Everett CC on Saturday. The two teams traded wins in the regular season, each claiming triumphs on their home court. Saturday's play-in game will be hosted by Everett CC, as they won the tiebreaker to host. The Tritons (6-8) come into the contest with a four-game losing skid. The Trojans (6-8) have dropped their last two.
Men's hoops took care of business with a decisive 81-68 win over Whatcom. Curtis Walker registered a double-double with 20 points and 17 rebounds. The Tritons' win forced a three-way tie in the North standings between Shoreline (9-5), Edmonds (9-5), and Peninsula (9-5). Because of region tiebreaker rules, Shoreline earned the No. 3 seed. Edmonds and Peninsula will square off for a third time this season for the right to go to the postseason. The men won a thriller in Port Angeles early in the season; the Pirates beat the Tritons in Seaview Gym. Edmonds is riding a three-game winning streak. The Pirates lost their last two games of the season.
Both matchups on Saturday will determine the fourth and final seed from the region to the Championship Tournament.
Both the Men's and Women's NWAC Championship Tournaments are at Everett CC's Walt Price Fitness Center. The women's first and second round games are Thursday and Friday March 5-6. The men's first and second round games are Saturday and Sunday March 7-8. NWAC Basketball Championships Website > >

Baseball goes 1-3 on opening weekend
LYNNWOOD -- The Edmonds CC baseball team started the season 1-3 at home on opening weekend, salvaging their only win in Sunday's first game against Centralia College.
Edmonds made three errors in Saturday's season opener, and after the Trailblazers plated back-to-back four-run innings in the top of the sixth, they held off a late Triton comeback to win 12-6. John Clark and Mark Wright each had two hits apiece and Jacob Butler drove in 2 runs. Starter Oliver Laufman allowed only one run in his four innings of work. The Tritons took control in game two with a four-run bottom of the first. They held a 5-2 lead and needed just three outs to close the door in the top of the seventh, but the Trailblazers' Andrew Dalton hit a grand slam to cement Centralia's come-from-behind win, 7-5.
Edmonds earned their first win of the year on Sunday 11-3 as they cruised in the first game. Starter Trey Tiffany hurled three scoreless frames and Taylo Derouin went six innings to shut down the Trailblazers.

The Tritons couldn't sustain their momentum in the nightcap; the Trailblazers broke a 1-1 tie with a 3-run sixth to go in front for good. Edmonds scored one in the bottom of the seventh, but fell 4-2. Jacob Butler was the only Triton to collect two hits.

Tritons knock off SVC, keep playoff hopes alive
LYNNWOOD -- With their backs against the wall, the Edmonds CC men's basketball team rose to the challenge and defeated Bellevue College on Wednesday night and followed that with an exciting win over Skagit Valley College on sophomore night to keep their postseason hopes alive.
On Wednesday, the Tritons started strong and finished big with a 93-72 win over Bellevue. Xaiver Meekins' jumpshot put Edmonds ahead 29-17 five minutes into the game. The Tritons shot well all night and they carried that hot start into the locker rooms with a 60-37 lead at halftime. Bellevue did make a comeback attempt early in the second stanza, going on a 22-6 run, but the Tritons responded and held off the charge.
Simran Parmar finished with 20 points and 14 rebounds, and Meekins poured in a season and career-high 21 points. Curtis Walker came off the bench to contribute 17 points.
Saturday's sophomore night thriller saw the Tritons shoot 45% from the floor, even against a stingy Skagit Valley Cardinal defense. In the end, the Tritons earned an impressive 94-88 win to top No. 1-ranked Skagit and continued their hopes to obtain the final playoff spot from the North Region.
Both teams came out strong to start the game. The Tritons opened up an eight-point lead at 14-6 in the middle of the first half. Near the end of the half Amanuel Gebreziabher was able to score six of his nine points to end the first half with the Tritons up 43-36.
In the second half, the Cardinals fought back, led by forward Willie Thomas III, who scored 21 of his 33 game-high points in the second half. Edmonds' double-double machine Curtis Walker matched him with 27 points and 17 rebounds. Edmonds made clutch free throws down the stretch to seal the win.
Now 8-5 in the North, the Tritons will need to beat Whatcom on the road Wednesday night in order to have a chance at the postseason. The other key game that will help determine playoff slots will be Peninsula's (9-4) matchup with Shoreline (8-5). Edmonds tips off in Bellingham at 7 p.m. in the regular season finale.
Women still in the hunt for postseason
LYNNWOOD -- Despite losing two close contests to Bellevue College and Skagit Valley College this week, the Edmonds CC women's basketball team still has a shot to qualify for the NWAC playoffs.
Wednesday night's game against Bellevue was an absolute heartbreaker. The Tritons pushed the game to overtime but fell on a last second shot by the Bulldogs. The final score was 80-79. Kalei Cates led Edmonds with 15 points.
The Tritons looked unstoppable in the first half scoring over 20 points in each of the first two quarters. Jerzie Pluid notched 9 points and 4 rebounds, and Gieani Balino dished out four assists. The Bulldogs were paced by Makenna Faulkner’s 13 points in the third quarter as they mounted a 24-7 run to tighten the game up into the fourth quarter. Sharp shooting by the Tritons helped them extend the game to overtime, but the back-and-forth tilt was decided by the Bulldogs on their final possession as they scored a put-back for the game winner with just one second remaining.
Saturday's game against Skagit Valley was a frustrating one. The Tritons started slow out of the gates and were never able to hit their stride, losing 74-70. They did not hold a lead in the second half and were dominated inside by the Cardinals' Melissa Frein at key points in the game. Skagit shot 50% from the field in the first half.
Skagit Valley stayed hot in the second half, shooting an eye-popping 70% from the floor; they also connected on 75% from beyond the arc. Kalei Cates was again a bright spot for Edmonds offensively; she scored 19 points in the sophomore night contest. Fellow sophomore Gieani Balino matched her with 19 points and sophomore Rachael Balagso chipped in 15 points and 10 assists.
Headed into the final game of the regular season the women, who are 6-7, still have a chance to earn a playoff spot from the North Region. They will face the top team in Whatcom (11-2) on Wednesday night at 5 p.m. in Bellingham. If they win, and Everett (6-7) loses they will clinch a postseason berth. If they lose, they will need Everett to also lose in order to force a play-in game that will determine the fourth and final slot from the region.
