Orcas too much for the Dolphins

Shoreliine CC basketball hosts Peninsula CC on January 23, 2014.The Dolphins traveled to Bellingham this weekend to take on the Whatcom Orcas. The Orcas, ranked 2nd in the Northern Region, proved to be too much for the Dolphins to take on. Shoreline fell to a final score of 82-58.

The Orcas were able to convert on Shoreline’s mistakes scoring 25 points off  of the 16 Dolphin turnovers. Whatcom was also able to score from the freethrow line. They scored 20 points from the charity line shooting 77% as a team.

With four players in double-digit scoring the Orcas were hard to handle. Last week’s NWAACC Co-Player of the Week Kyle Impero scored 27 points and had 9 rebounds. Alex Duncan, Eric Fongue and Quinton Whitfield were the other top scorers with 16, 14 and 12 points respectively.

The Dolphins were led by Earl Thompson once again. Thompson had another double-double with 26 points and 13 rebounds. Both of the Viena brothers, Drew and Bulla,  scored 7 points each for the Dolphins.

Shoreline will take a break from Region play to take on Northwest Indian College at home this Wednesday at 7:30pm, just after the women’s game. We will have the Shoreline Just Dance Club presented by the Student Leadership Center preforming at halftime.
