Port Angeles girls lose appeal, take second
SILVERDALE — Through a technicality, the Vikings beat the Roughriders in a three-way meet hosted by Klahowya.
Port Angeles initially beat North Kitsap 30-32, but officials disqualified the Riders’ top two runners for taking a wrong turn coming out of the woods.
With the mistake, the runners actually ran farther than the 3.1-mile course, but they managed to finished fourth and fifth.
Once the Roughrider front two girls were disqualified, the adjusted score showed North Kitsap the winners.
The rest of the Port Angeles pack came in sixth, seventh, eighth, and ninth to edge ou Klahowya.
“Well, a rule is a rule,” said assistant coach Pat Durr.
“Even though they ran farther, and got no advantage by taking a wrong turn, they did not complete the required course.
“I have tremendous empathy for them, though. Even with a GPS in my car, I’m always getting lost when I drive.
“It will be settled at the league championship.”
Annika Pederson came in first for the Riders with a 22:19 for the 5K course, followed by Taylor Jones with 22:24 and Dove Lucas at 22:26.

“Elliott stepped in and played some singles for us today, and I thought he played really well,” Gunderson said.
Port Angeles travels to North Mason on Monday.
Klahowya 5, Port Townsend 0
PORT TOWNSEND — After giving up three goals in the first half, coach Colin Foden decided to swap his players around to give them experience at different positions.
“It was a disappointing half in which the team defended well and occasionally counter-attacked, but still gave away some ‘soft’ goals,” Foden said of Thursday’s match.
“With a win unlikely, in the second half it was time to experiment.”
He moved goalkeeper Malia Henderson up to play offense, giving her chances to score. Shenoa Snyder made her debut in goal and was rarely troubled.
While Lily Murock and Brenna Latchford controlled midfield, and Jewel Johnson maintained a constant, threatening presence to Klahowya.
“Two very late goals could have been avoided, but overall the team showed a much improved second half,” Foden said.
