The Bothell High girls basketball team beat Skyline in overtime, 65-57, on Wednesday evening in Sammamish.

Skyline guard Carly Werner hit a runner in the lane to tie the game at 56 as time expired, sending the game to overtime.

Bothell (11-0 KingCo, 15-2) outscored Skyline 9-1 in the four-minute overtime period, hitting seven free throws in overtime to seal the victory. Bothell senior Taya Corosdale finished with 21 points in the win.

Bothell coach Kent Schaefer wasn’t surprised Skyline (7-4, 8-4) pushed his team to the limit.

“I think they’ve got a little bit of a different look in their eye than they have in the past,” Shaefer said. “They are so explosive offensively and are pretty hard to slow down.”

“For one, I think our girls didn’t panic (in overtime),” he said. “We stayed composed and we made some free throws. We’ve done a good job of making free throws when we need to. We also got stops on defense. That was the biggest thing. To hold them to one point in those four minutes was a big deal.”

Skyline coach Stacie Erfle was proud of her team for nearly toppling Bothell, which can clinch the top seed in the conference playoffs with a win over the final three games.

“It is a really weird feeling,” Erfle said. “We’re super kind of upset because that was so close but when you put it into perspective, it was Bothell and they are an incredible team that is top-ranked. We would had loved to have this one (victory).”

Junior guard Jade Loville scored a game-high 25 points in the loss for Skyline, including seven straight to close the first quarter.

“Jade is a game-changer. She is an elite level athlete,” Erfle said. “We want the ball in her hands. She has had an amazing season and has really grown as a player. We always expect great things from her. She went out and did a great job tonight.”

Bothell senior Jada Romulus added 19 points in the win.

Next, Bothell is scheduled to play Woodinville (9-2, 15-3) at 6 p.m. on Jan. 27 at Bothell High School. Bothell can clinch the No. 1 seed with a win.

Eastlake 67, Inglemoor 21.

Once again without senior post Amanda Luckett, the Vikings struggled to score in a conference loss to Eastlake on Jan. 25 at Eastlake High School in Sammamish.

Eastlake (8-3, 10-4) led by 19 points after the first quarter, and held a 44-8 edge at halftime.

Sophomore Jenna Troy led the Vikings (3-8, 6-10) with eight points. Inglemoor has lost the last five games, and will need at least one win over the final three games to have a chance at qualifying for the conference tournament.

Next, Inglemoor is set to play Mount Si at 6:30 p.m. on Jan. 27 at Inglemoor High School in Kenmore.
