She was four for five on the night for three pointers. The score before the half was 45-28, in favor of Everett.

Bellevue came out swinging in the second half. “All good teams make a run” said Chet Hovde, Everett’s head coach. “We expected them to make a run.”  

By the fourth quarter Bellevue shrunk the lead to just nine, demanding stellar defense from the Trojans in order to come up with the win.A healthy mixture of defense and strategy kept Everett in the lead.

Reinforcing that the Trojans’ defense was the answer to Bellevue’s second half run, Biggerstaff said, “…our defense was a lot scrappier and more aggressive than it’s been.” 

Everett remains 3-0 and seeks to stay undefeated. The next game is 4:00 on Saturday Jan 20 at Everett.
