The Federal Way Eagles boys basketball team got back on the winning track Thursday night with a 90-74 victory over the Rogers Rams. The Eagles had lost two straight games at the final buzzer to Curtis and Puyallup.

Federal Way got a pair of big games from Terrell Smith and Earnest “Pooh” Williams. The Eagles’ two stars combined for 52 points.

Smith, Federal Way’s 6-foot-4 point guard, had 27 points, nine rebounds and six assists and Williams chipped in 25.

The victory moved the Eagles to 5-2 in the South Puget Sound League South Division, two games back of the undefeated and No. 1-ranked Curtis Vikings. Puyallup sits 5-1 in league play and Decatur and Bethel also have two losses in the South. The top-five finishers in the SPSL South move on to the postseason.

Decatur

The Decatur Gators moved to 5-2 in the SPSL South with an 80-45 blowout win over the Spanaway Lake Sentinels Thursday night.

The Gators got 22 points, six assists and six rebouunds from senior point guard Andrew Kim and another double-double from Darious Walker. The junior had 18 points and 10 rebounds against Spanaway Lake. Walker had 19 and 10 Tuesday in a win over Emerald Ridge.

Decatur was playing without suspended senior JaRon Brown, who missed his second game in a row. Stedman Richardson collected 11 rebounds and six assists and Travis Wagner scored 15 points for the Gators.

Beamer

It wasn’t the most exciting first quarter, but the Titans turned it on in the second and cruised to a 47-36 win over Emerald Ridge Thursday night. Beamer led 4-3 after the first eight minutes of play, but went on to outscore the Jaguars 18-6 in the second quarter to take control of the game.

Beamer’s Aaron Edwards had the best game of his career with 15 points and Daniel Young added 11 rebounds for the 3-3 Titans.
