Women’s basketball

Peninsula 68, Green River 64

AUBURN — The Peninsula basketball women rode a big fourth quarter, squeaked out a tough one against Green River at the Green River Crossover 68-64.

The women won two out of three at the event at Green River College, beating last year’s Northwest Conference defending champion Lane and losing to Columbia Basin in overtime.

The Pirates (7-5) entered the fourth quarter Saturday down 53-58 to Green River, but outscored the Gators 20-11 in the fourth to pull out the win.

“I think that we had a really good tournament overall. I think we’re starting to play together,” said coach Alison Crubm.

A highlight of the tournament was the Peninsula women beating Lane College in the opening game Thursday. Lane beat Peninsula last year at the NWAC championship game and came into the game ranked No. 1 in the conference.

“It was a great confidence-builder [to be able to beat Lane],” Crumb said. “And we have some people on the team who lost that championship game, so it meant a lot to them.”

Five Pirates ended up in double figures in Saturday’s Green River game, led by Anaya Rodisha with 17. Tiffani Smith scored 13 while Alicia Dugan had a great all-around game with 12 points, eight rebounds and six assists.

Yamelei Rodriguez had 11 points and seven rebounds, while fresh off her 27-point, 24-rebound effort in the Friday overtime loss to Columbia Basin, Jenise McKnight had 10 points and nine rebounds.

The Pirates next play Dec. 30 at Clark College in Vancouver.
