MUKILTEO — Mountlake Terrace coach Deidrea Ducheane rolled the dice last night and came up a winner.

Ducheane decided to let super sophomore Tatiana Heck play even after she picked up her fourth foul early in the fourth quarter.

Even though Heck fouled out with 22 points with 4:05 left in regulation, the Hawks found a way to beat Kamiak 60-56 in a WesCo girls basketball game.

“We found a way and that’s what it’s all about right now,” Ducheane said. “I was worried when she went out, but I have confidence in my bench, that they would do the right thing if she fouled out, and they did.”

L’Tisha Smith made a layup and Nicki Mosman made a long three-pointer as the Hawks held on without Heck.

Mosman finished the game with 18 points and made four three-pointers.

Mountlake Terrace, coming off its first loss of the season to Meadowdale, improved to 4-1 in the WesCo South and 5-1 overall.

Kamiak, 2-2 in the WesCo South and 2-3 overall, was led by Tiffany Shedrick with 14 points and Ashley Vick with 13.
