Peay’s heroics lead Inglemoor past Woodinville in OT

Their backs against the wall and their season nearing an end, the Inglemoor High boys basketball was running out of options.

The Vikings trailed Woodinville by eight in a loser-out game of the Class 4A KingCo tournament on Thursday evening at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland. But Inglemoor went on a furious rally and finished the fourth quarter on a 11-3 run over the final two minutes.

Senior Jaxon Peay hit a 3-pointer as time expired to tie the game at 54, and Inglemoor edged Woodinville, 63-60, to stay alive in the conference tournament.

“That feels amazing,” said Peay, who finished with 14 points. “Throughout the game I wasn’t playing as well as I could have, but hitting that really put my confidence level up there.”

Ryan Hamilton led Inglemoor (11-11) with 20 points. Jalen Woodley had 15 points.

Woodinville’s Michael Roth led all scorers with 28 points in the loss for Woodinville.

The Vikings advance to face Skyline at 7:45 p.m. on Feb. 16 at Lake Washington High School for KingCo’s final berth in the Class 4A regional round. Skyline lost to Bothell in the conference tournament championship game on Feb. 16.

“Season didn’t come to an end tonight, and it feels good,” Peay said.
