Bothell girls clinch conference tournament berth; Inglemoor falls to Issaquah

The Bothell High girls basketball team posted its most-dominant result of the season on Wednesday, beating Newport 68-33 and remaining unbeaten in conference play.

The Cougars led 17-10 after the first quarter, but put on the defensive clamps for a 37-16 halftime lead.

Next, Bothell is set to play Mount Si at 6:30 p.m. on Friday in Snoqualmie. The top six teams qualify for the conference tournament, which begins on Feb. 8 at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland. Bothell can finish no worse than 9-6 in conference play.

Issaquah 50, Inglemoor 45 (OT)

Inglemoor (3-6, 6-8) outscored Issaquah by five in the fourth quarter.

Freshman Lucy Young led the Vikings with 13 points and eight rebounds. Amanda Luckett had 10 points.

It was the third tough loss for Inglemoor in succession. The Vikings held a late lead against Bothell on Jan. 13 and lost, and dropped a close game to Skyline on Jan. 11.

Next, Inglemoor is scheduled to play Woodinville at 6 p.m. on Friday at Woodinville High School.

Archbishop Murphy 60, Cedar Park Christian 22
