North Kitsap 6,
Port Angeles 4, 14 innings


PORT ANGELES — The Roughriders made the league-leading Vikings work overtime before they could clinch a share of the Olympic League title.

“It was the longest game I’ve ever been a part of,” Port Angeles coach Vic Reykdal said of Wednesday’s game, which lasted five hours and didn’t end until around 9 p.m.

The Riders took a 4-3 lead into the top of the seventh inning when North Kitsap scored to send the game into extra innings.

Port Angeles was in trouble for most of the added frames, but managed to survive until the Vikings finally took advantage in the 14th.

“It seemed like they had guys on every inning, but we kept wiggling off the hook,” Reykdal said.

Reykdal was proud of the effort by his team, which is out of postseason contention.

“We’re basically playing for pride and we battled them to the very end,” he said.

It was the last home game of the season for the Riders (5-8, 5-9) who play at Kingston (4-10, 4-12) today.

BREMERTON — The Roughriders lost a hard-fought match to the heat and the Trojans.

“It was a tough day for the [us] in 85 degree weather,” Port Angeles coach Stephanie Gochnour said.
