FORKS — Forks’ Parker Browning scored his 1,000th career high school point and the Spartans got three players in double figures in a 74-33 Evergreen league win over the Beavers.

The win Tuesday night evens Forks’ Evergreen 1A League record at 2-2.

“It was the ultimate team win,” said coach Rick Gooding.

Gooding said the Spartans struggled a bit out of the gate, but ramped up their defense in the second half, scoring 45 points in the half off their defensive work.

Gooding said Jeffery Schumack had a great game defensively, making repeated steals on Tenino.

“Jeffery was our heartbeat tonight,” Gooding said.

Browning led the team with 18 points, which is exactly how much he needed to reach 1,000 points.

Marky Adams scored 14, while Cort Prose scored 12 points on four 3-pointers. Cole Baysinger also scored nine.

Forks (10-5, 2-2) had lost three out its past four. The Spartans next host Elma at 5:30 p.m. Friday as they try to keep up with league leaders Montesano and Hoquiam.

Port Townsend 65, Chimacum 42

PORT TOWNSEND — The Redhawks earned back the Widge Black Memorial Traveling Trophy after routing the Cowboys at home.

Port Townsend jumped out to a 15-2 lead and cruised to pick up a three-game season sweep of its rivals.

“It was a reverse of last week when Chimacum kind of jumped on us,” Redhawks coach Tom Webster said.

“We made that a focal point: get out to a good start and we did. We played some played good on-ball, off-ball man defense.”

Port Townsend broke the game open with a 27-10 third quarter.

“In the third [quarter] we started to really attack the rim, especially Kaiden [Parcher], Berkley [Hill and Deet [Detrius Kelsall].

“They were getting after it.”

Hill scored 19 points to lead all scorers and added seven rebounds, five assists and three steals.

Kelsall narrowly missed a triple-double with 17 points, 13 rebounds, eight steals and five assists.

Parcher added 14 points and seven boards.

“Parcher got inside on their big guys and did well,” Webster said.

Point guard Jacob Boucher had five assists, five rebounds and hit a 3-pointer for the Redhawks.

Isaac Purser scored 13 and Cole Dotson 11 to pace Chimacum.

Port Townsend (6-0, 11-3) is one win away from clinching the Olympic League 1A Division title.

North Kitsap 75, Port Angeles 70 (OT)

POULSBO — The Port Angeles boys put a huge scare into league-leading North Kitsap, building up a 19-point second-half lead before the Vikings came roaring back for a 75-70 overtime win.

Despite the heartbreaking loss, Roughriders coach Kasey Ulin said he’s more confident in this team than he has been all year because of the way the boys dominated 13-2 North Kitsap for much of the game.

“That was the best 24 or 25 minutes of basketball we’ve played in my three years at Port Angeles,” he said. “We were focused, we were sharing the ball.”

Ulin said North Kitsap deserves a lot of credit for coming back and making a lot of tough shots down the stretch.

The Riders built up a lead of 51-32 with about three minutes left in the third quarter before the Vikings ended the quarter on a 14-6 run.

The Riders had 24 assists in the game and shot 11-for-20 from beyond the 3-point arc.

Noah McGoff led the Riders with five 3-pointers and 20 points. Luke Angevine hit three 3-pointers and scored 14, while Kyle Benedict had a pair of treys and scored 12. Garrett Edwards also scored 14.

Port Angeles (8-7, 4-4) has an important road game at 7 p.m. Friday against Bremerton as the boys try to stay in range for postseason.

“We need to win that game,” Ulin said. Port Angeles beat Bremerton earlier this season at home in a close game.
