After losing to the Newport Knights 59-55 in a 4A Kingco matchup on Friday night, the Redmond girls’ basketball team bounced back Saturday night with a 52-44 win against Garfield.
Saturday’s game against the Bulldogs was a makeup from snowed-out game in December.
After Garfield opened the game with 20 points in the first period, Redmond’s defense shut down the Bulldogs in the second quarter, holding them to just four points as the Stangs took a 26-24 lead at the half and held on for the victory.
Courtney Martin rebounded from a season-low seven points on Friday to put in game-high 24 against Garfield, while Chandler Jones added 14.
The win improved Redmond to 6-6 in league play and 9-7 overall.
Early scoring spree leads Owls to win

Overlake senior forward Danny Poplawski scored a game-high 27 points.
Chandler Hire added 13 and Hakan Yagiz put in eight for Overlake, which led 40-20 at halftime.
With the win, the Owls evened their conference record at 4-4 and improved to 8-7 overall.
Eight is great for Lady Owls
The Overlake girls’ basketball team continued to find ways to win, beating Northwest School, 36-23, at Seattle Hebrew Academy on Friday for its eighth straight win.
Maya Marder led all scorers with 11 points, and Jessica Elliott added 10.
The win propelled the Owls to 7-3 in 1A Emerald City League play and 11-4 overall.
The Owls will go for a ninth victory in a row on Tuesday in a rematch against undefeated Bellevue Christian, which handed Overlake its most recent loss on Jan. 13.
Bear Creek crumbles late
The visiting Bear Creek girls looked good in the first half, taking a 20-15 lead into the locker room during their Sea-Tac 2B league game against the Seattle Lutheran Saints on Friday. But a mix of poor shooting and a revamped Saints defense limited the Grizzlies to six points in the second half as Seattle Lutheran came back to win 37-26.
Bear Creek senior post Alexis Miller led all scorers with 13, and Seattle Lutheran’s leading scorer Stephanie Antioquia finished with 12.
The loss evened the Grizzlies’ league record at 3-3 and dropped its overall mark to 7-9.
