On a drive to the hoop on the baseline

With 10 in the first half and 10 more after the break, senior Peter Strasser scored a game-high 20 point to lead Friday Harbor to its fourth consecutive victory and seventh in the last eight outings in a 57-27 rout over Mount Vernon Christian Jan. 9 in Turnbull Gym.

The Wolverines led 22-4 after the opening period and outscored the Hurricanes (3-2, 3-7) in each of the following three quarters to bag the win. They defeated Orcas 66-22 on the road three days earlier.

Sophomore John Gustafson tossed in 13 points, Eli Cooper-West had seven. Strasser also led the Wolverines in the scoring column at Orcas, with a game-high 24 points.

Friday Harbor will host La Conner (4-0 league, 8-2 overall) Friday in a battle for first place in the league standings; tip off is 5:30 p.m.
