The Mercer Island boys basketball team lost to Mount Si twice last week, being pushed to a loser-out first-round game of KingCo.

The Islanders entered the week in second place in the division, but the first loss to the Wildcats on Thursday, 64-62 in overtime, tied the two teams for second.

A tie-breaker had to be played at Interlake High School on Saturday. The Islanders were led by Peter Zajac, who had eight points during the first quarter. But a lack of scoring led to Mercer Island’s loss, 38-36.

The Islanders took on Sammamish, Tuesday, at Mercer Island High School. A win pushes Mercer Island into a third game against Mount Si in a week that would be scheduled for tomorrow. A loss against the Totems, and Mercer Island will stay home.
