Jefferson: Port Townsend edges Chimacum, will play for district championship

TACOMA — It was a neck-and-neck snoozer as the Port Townsend boys basketball team edged Chimacum 38-35 in a slow West Central District 2A Tournament game on Friday at Curtis High School.

It was the lowest scoring game and the lowest winning score in the tournament’s history as the Redskins (16-6) squeezed out the win.

Port Townsend surged ahead by eight points with 1 minute, 30 seconds remaining.

Reid Lawson and Dylan Hendy answered with back-to-back 3-pointers to help Chimacum tie the game with 26 seconds left to go.

Nils Dobszinsky nailed the game-winner, a short jumper, to break a 35-35 tie with five ticks left on the clock.

The Redskins held Robbie Andrus — the Cowboys’ leading scorer averaging 23.5 points per game — to 15.

Port Townsend’s leading scorer was Devin Schuck with 13.

The Redskins will play Steilacoom for the district championship and Nos. 1 and 2 state seeds while Chimacum will meet Eatonville for the third and final berth.
