GIRLS BASKETBALL: Roughriders keep rolling with 70-15 win

Neah Bay, Forks also win

PORT ANGELES — Jaida Wood led the way offensively as Port Angeles shot past North Mason 70-15 in an Olympic League girls basketball game Friday.

The Roughriders rolled out to a 49-5 halftime advantage and hit 55 percent of their shots as a team for the game while limiting the Bulldogs to 15 percent shooting.

“Jaida Wood had an extremely efficient offensive game with 7 of 9 field goal-shooting and 4 of 4 free-throw shooting. She has 16 of her 18 points in the first half to help us to our large halftime lead,” coach Michael Poindexter said.

“Defensive pressure early in the game forced quite a few North Mason turnovers with Bailee Larson and Millie Long picking up several deflections and steals.”

Burke added 10 points. Walker had eight points and tied with Jayde Gedelman and Anna Petty for the team-high in rebounds with five.

“A highlight offensively was outstanding ball movement on offense against North Mason’s 2-3 zone,” Poindexter said. “Two-thirds of our baskets came off of consistently impressive assist passes.”

Jenna McGoff led the Riders (4-0) with four assists while Long, Larson and Petty each totaled three.

Port Angeles hosts East Jefferson (0-3) at 7 p.m. Tuesday.

SILVERDALE — East Jefferson held a 38-35 lead heading into the fourth quarter but were eclipsed by four made 3-point baskets by the Eagles in the final frame.

“We lost Gina Brown to injury for the fourth quarter and that was tough to overcome,” coach Lorraine Rimson said. “We also do not yet have a consistent 3-point shooter to match what most other teams have. Klahowya is all about the 3-point shot.”

Rimson said Brown’s injury wasn’t serious and she should be back in the lineup for a matchup against Port Angeles on Tuesday.

She praised another East Jefferson post, Jadeah Nordberg for being “exceptional once again.”

“Her effort and competitiveness is top of the line,” Rimson said. “She had 29 rebounds — earlier this week [against Neah Bay] she had 23. Oh, how I wish I could keep this roster through the summer and into next year.”

Sophomore Alyssa Vandenberg led East Jefferson with 13 points and 17 rebounds.

“A quiet, but strong double-double,” Rimson said.

Forks 47, Northwest Christian 32

LACEY — The Spartans weren’t at their best, but got the job done, earning a league win on the road, according to coach David Hurn.

“We came out flat, the gym environment in COVID is tough with no fans on the road, and we came out with no energy,” Hurn said. “We picked up the intensity on defense, Keira [Johnson] led the charge on that and we got some transition buckets in the second half.”

The freshman scored 15 of Forks’ 17 points in the third quarter as the Spartans grew a 20-12 halftime lead into a 37-19 advantage heading to the final frame.

Johnson finished with a team-high 21 points.

“Defensively we have been pretty strong all year and we were again Thursday,” Hurn said.

Forks (4-1) has had a number of games canceled due to COVID protocols with other schools.

“Wednesday’s game against North Beach is still on,” Hurn said. “The bright side is we get to practice for more than one day in a row. We just have to swing with the punches.”
