The Foster High boys basketball team was done in by a cold first quarter Saturday, Feb. 12 in a seeding game against Kingston.

Sam Byers scored 21 points and Zane Ravenholt added 14 more, leading the Buccaneers past the Bulldogs 64-56. Kingston bolted out to a 21-10 first-quarter lead and never looked back.

The Bulldogs got to within five points of Kingston in the fourth quarter after consecutive 3-pointers by Gabe Gutierrez, but were unable to come any closer. The loss gives Foster (12-10) the No. 4 seed in the Class 2A West Central District tournament, which will be played from Feb. 16-21 at multiple venues. On Friday, Feb. 18 at Curtis High in University Place, Foster will play the winner of the Wednesday night’s Lindbergh/Franklin Pierce game at 6 p.m. If the Bulldogs win Friday night they will earn an automatic berth to the state tournament and advance to the semifinals of the district tournament.

Foster has qualified for the state tournament in each of the last four years.

Against Kingston, the Bulldogs received big performances from both Gutierrez (15 points) and TreVaunte Williams (game-high 24 points).
