But the Buccaneers' second quarter was enough to end derail the Roughriders' upset hopes before halftime.
Kingston (6-1, 7-2) scored four touchdowns in the second period en route to a 49-14 romp in Port Angeles' homecoming game at Civic Field on Friday night.
After a 7-0 first quarter, Bobby Reece connected with Henry English for a pair of touchdown passes and Aaron Dickson ran for two scores to give the Buccaneers a 35-0 halftime lead.
The Riders found the end zone twice in the fourth quarter on a pass to Caleb West and a run by Nick Lasorsa.
After its big win over rival Sequim last week, Port Angeles (2-5, 2-7) had the misfortune of playing the Olympic League's second-place team, one that was coming off its first league loss of the season and that needed a win to secure second place.
The Riders were dealt a similar blow by the schedule-makers last month, when their first win of the season was followed by a game against league champion North Kitsap.
North Mason 69, Sequim 46
SEQUIM — Brett Wright hauled in 17 catches for 218 yards and a touchdown and returned a kickoff for another score for the Wolves.
Adam Knapman rushed for 133 yards and three scores, and Miguel Moroles threw for 308 yards.
Those offensive performances lead Sequim to 46 points, but weren't near enough to lead the Wolves to victory Friday night.
The Bulldogs scored 21 points in each of the first two quarters to take a 42-10 halftime lead, then answered Sequim's 36 second-half points with 27 points of their own.
North Mason (5-2, 7-2) ran for 511 yards.
Sequim offensive coordinator and athletic director Dave Ditlefsen said Wright's 17 catches are probably a school record.
Wright was one of five seniors playing their last game at Sequim High School, along with Knapman, Austin Sampson, Alex Serrano and Riley Hazard.
The Wolves (0-7, 0-9) will close out their season Thursday night with a crossover game at Foster.
Neah Bay 76, Clallam Bay 14
NEAH BAY — Josiah Greene passed for three touchdowns, ran for two and even caught a 72-yard touchdown pass thrown by his brother Ben as the top-ranked Red Devils finished the regular season undefeated.
Next up in Neah Bay's quest for a third straight trip to the 1B championship game is a Northwest Football League crossover game.
Josiah Greene scored on both of his carries, one from 66 yards out and the other a 9-yard scamper.
He completed 10 of 12 passes for 191 yards, and threw a 79-yard and 9-yard scoring strikes to cousin Ezekiel Greene, and a 29-yarder to Elisha Winck.
Overall, Josiah Greene accounted for 338 of Neah Bay's 647 yards of total offense.
“Josiah Greene can do anything on the football field he wants,” Clallam Bay coach Cal Ritter said after Friday's game.
“He's a great kid and a heck of a quarterback.”
Cameron Buzzell became the third Red Devil to throw a touchdown pass when he hooked up with Reggie Buttram for a 15-yard score.
Ezekiel Greene caught three passes for 134 yards with two touchdowns, and found the end zone on a 37-yard run.
Bill Hanson, a starting offensive lineman, caught one pass for 11 yards.
Collin Haupt ran eight times for 71 yards. He scored on a 21-yard run and a 81-yard kickoff return.
Tyus McGee picked up fumble and returned it four yards for a touchdown.
For Clallam Bay, Matt Mohr rushed for 250 yards and a touchdown.
The Bruins' other score came on a 48-yard pass from Kelly Gregory to Calvin Ritter.
Calvin Ritter ran for 104 yards and caught two passes for 56 yards. He also attempted two passes, as Clallam Bay broke out some trick plays and different looks.
“After a while, what can you do but have fun?” Cal Ritter said.
“That's what [playing football] is all about, any way.”
The Bruins moved the ball early in the game, but couldn't reach the end zone. Their first drive ended with a fumble inside the Neah Bay 10-yard line, and the next one stalled on fourth-and-1 at the Red Devils 30.
“That's story of our season: Get close, then shoot ourselves in the foot,” Cal Ritter said.
“I thought our guys played fairly well. All in all, it was a pretty good game.
“I'm proud of our team. They walked off the field with their heads held up.”
The Bruins will conclude their season with a crossover game at Rainier Christian.
Neah Bay (5-0, 8-0), meanwhile, will play Saturday against the winner of Monday afternoon's pigtail half-game between Quilcene (2-1, 4-2) and Lopez Island (2-2, 5-2) at Quilcene.
