PORT TOWNSEND — Jayde Richardson scored 14 points and grabbed 27 rebounds as the Port Townsend girls basketball team dropped Klahowya 47-30 in Olympic League action.

A 16-6 Redskins third quarter helped break open up a close contest on Tuesday.

Point guard Jewel Johnson scored 14 and Trish Reeves had 10 points for the Redskins (4-9, 7-10), who moved closer to clinching a district play-in game against a Nisqually League opponent.

Port Townsend visits North Kitsap on Friday.

Sequim 52, North Mason 32

SEQUIM — Trailing 24-21 at halftime to the last-place Bulldogs, Sequim coach Evan Still didn't have a great deal to say to his team in the locker room.

“[My speech was] pretty short and sweet,” Still said.

“We told them they weren't playing with enough heart and that we needed to box out a little better.”

His team took that advice to heart in the second half, allowing one North Mason basket in the third, while outscoring the Bulldogs 24-2.

The huge quarter was keyed by 13 points from Caitlin Stofferahn, including three 3-point baskets.

She finished with a game-high 24 points for the Wolves (8-4, 8-8).

“She started 0 for 5 from the floor but had a good drive to get her first basket and realized she needed to attack the hoop and get points that way,” Still said.

“We got her the ball inside, she was aggressive and it opened up from there.”

Alexas Besand had 11 for the Wolves, who travel to face Klahowya on Friday. Sequim is one game ahead of North Kitsap for the Olympic League's final spot in the district playoffs.

Mount Rainier Lutheran 51, Quilcene 30

QUILCENE — A poor fourth quarter tripped up the Rangers in this Class 1B Sea-Tac League game.

“Shorthanded and without a deep bench, [we] just ran out of gas in the fourth quarter and couldn't stay in the game,” Quilcene coach Briana Weller said.

Weller pointed out the team was without point guard Megan Weller, who was sick with the flu.

Quilcene trailed by just one point, 20-19 at halftime, and briefly took the lead in the third quarter, before trailing 33-27 entering the fourth.

Bailey Kieffer led Quilcene with 15 points and added four rebounds and two assists.

Sammy Rae had seven points, 12 rebounds, three steals and a pair of assists for Quilcene (7-9 overall).

Allison Jones chipped in with four points, six rebounds, four assists and two steals for the Rangers.

Rainier 49, Forks 30

RAINIER — Zach Froembling scored 17 of the Mountaineers' 19 second-quarter points en route to a game-high 25 points.

“He's the best player, at least the best shooter, in the league,” Forks coach Rick Gooding.

With two Evergreen 1A League games left, the Spartans (2-9, 4-13) need at least one win to lock down a district play-in game.

Forks hosts Montesano (4-4, 9-7) on Friday and Tenino (1-8, 4-10) on Tuesday.

“We need these last two games,” Gooding said.

Colton Raben, who was limited by illness, led the Spartans with six points.

“Even though he was sick, he played hard,” Gooding said.

Leo Gonzales, Dimitri Sampson and Keishaun Ramsey added five each.
