`Cats drop crucial game to Islanders
The Mount Si boys basketball team traveled to Mercer
Island last week, hoping for a league-leading win, but it wasn't to
be for the `Cats as they lost 76-61 in a battle of league division
Mercer Island dominated early, leading the `Cats 22-14
at the end of the first quarter. Plagued by turnovers and
missed three-pointers, the `Cats couldn't muster the offense necessary
to keep pace with the Islanders. At the end of the first half the
Islanders led 39-28.
From there, the Islanders' Justin McCullum kicked it into
high gear to help Mercer Island pull away. Scoring for the `Cats
were Isaiah Cormier, leading the team with 25 points, teammates
Marc Dahm and Sean Fallows, each recorded 10. Mike Dahm had
seven, while Logan Ratcliffe and Vince Longbucco had five and four,
