After Colton Garland, Tyler Stoll and Ghirardelli added six points apiece for WHS, with Andy Garland and Matthew Stephens netting four points each. Black finished with eight points for the Mustangs.
Washington started strong then hit a long scoring drought before rebounding to take a lead into the locker room at halftime. The Hatchets took a quick 6-0 lead to open the game, including a free throw from Colton Garland, a pair of charity tosses from Andy Garland, and a 3-pointer from Colton Garland.
That trey, however, would be the final points of the first quarter for the Hatchets as Edgewood reeled off 10 straight points to take a 10-6 lead after eight minutes of play. The Mustangs’ lead reached 12-6 before a basket by Ghirardelli broke Hatchet skid early in the second quarter. But a three from Clayton Settle pushed the Edgewood lead to seven points at 15-8 following Ghirardelli’s bucket.
Washington, though, found its mark on offense and outscored the Mustangs 14-5 the rest of the second quarter to forge a 22-20 halftime lead. Colton Garland dialed long distance twice more during the run, while Stoll added a pair of buckets and a free throw and Matthew Sparks contributed a basket.
Washington also fronted after three quarters of play 26-24.
