PREP SPORTS: Clallam Bay holds off Wishkah with three players; other area reports

Peninsula Daily News

ABERDEEN — If the Clallam Bay girls basketball team began its game against Wishkah Valley shorthanded, it finished the contest playing without a full set of fingers.

Despite only having three players on the court at the end, the Bruins held off the Loggers for a 34-28 win Saturday.

“We started out with six players and ended the game with three left on the court,” Clallam Bay coach Kathleen Winter said.

“With about five minutes left in the fourth quarter we got down to four, and then a little under two minutes we got down to three because of fouls.”

Jeddie Herndon, Zeria Signor and Jennica Maines were the last three Bruins on the court after Kyla Wilson fouled out.

Wishkah Valley also had two players foul out, but the Loggers could afford it with a roster of 11 players.

Fortunately for the Bruins, they had a big enough lead built up, beginning with a first quarter in which they outscored the Loggers 14-0.

“At the end of the game, the score felt closer than it was because we were in such bad foul trouble and they were coming back,” Winter said.

“I was very pleased of the poise that the remaining players had towards the end of the game, protecting the basketball and making good decisions.”

Herndon led all scorers with 10 points.

“Jeddie Herndon had a standout game for us tonight both offensively and defensively,” Winter said.

“She had seven steals and put heavy pressure on their ball handlers to really take Wishkah out of their game.”

Inga Erickson and Zeria Signor scored eight points each for the Bruins.

Ally Ancich led the Loggers with nine points.

Clallam Bay (3-2) is off until Monday, Jan. 6, when it travels to face the Port Angeles C team.

BELLINGHAM — The Roughriders had 13 of 15 wrestlers place in the top six of their brackets to lead the Port Angeles to a second place finish behind only perennial 4A power Snohomish at the Graham Morin Memorial tournament at Squalicum High School.

The Riders had four champions and seven finalists.

Cody Anderson (106 pounds), Brady Anderson (120), Ozzy Swagerty (126) and Roberto Coronel (285) were Port Angeles' champions.

The Riders next host The Battle for the Axe on Saturday, Jan. 4.

Port Townsend coach Steven Grimm said his team “wrestled tough as always, placing six out of 11 wrestlers. All of the third-place finishers were so close to making the finals — one or two points in the second half and [they] would have been wrestling for gold.”
