The Redmond Mustangs fell 63-57 to the Inglemoor Vikings in the third-place game of the KingCo 4A boys basketball tournament on Feb. 8 at Sammamish High School.

The Mustangs will enter the Wes-King District Tournament as the KingCo No. 4 seed.

In their loss to Inglemoor, junior guard Nathan Miller had 17 points and senior forward Aidan Rolfs had 15 points for the Mustangs.

The two KingCo Crown rivals traded buckets early, with the Mustangs holding an 18-13 lead after the first quarter. Redmond extended its lead in the second quarter to 30-21, but Inglemoor scored the final five points of the frame to cut the Mustangs’ lead to 30-26 at halftime.

Inglemoor senior forward Peter Hansen scored seven points in the third quarter to help the Vikings level the game at 39-39 going into the fourth quarter.

After a 3-pointer from Redmond forward Cameron Clum put the Mustangs ahead 42-39 early in the fourth, Inglemoor’s Shimek hit three straight 3-pointers to give the Vikings a 48-42 advantage. Inglemoor wouldn’t relinquish its lead to secure the 63-57 win.
