BREMERTON — Tight defense and solid shooting helped the Roughriders roll out to a 30-9 lead at halftime in their Olympic League season opener Tuesday.

“Our first-half margin was the result of points scored off of turnovers caused by our full-court press in the first quarter and good percentage shooting in the second quarter,” coach Michael Poindexter said.

Up big, Port Angeles was a little lax in the second half, according to Poindexter.

“Our second-half performance was marred by eight turnovers in the third quarter and shooting 1-of-10 on 3-point attempts in the second half,” Poindexter said. “Our turnovers were the result of too many high-risk passes in transition and forcing the ball inside too early against Bremerton’s zone defense.”

Senior Anna Petty led the Riders with 12 points and seven steals.

Freshman Lindsay Smith posted eight points and a team-high five rebounds.

Izzy Felton added five points and five steals.

“Anna Petty, Izzy Felton and Piper Williams had solid defensive performances both in our press and in our 2-3 zone,” Poindexter said.

“I was pleased with our getting to the line 17 times and making 12 (71 percent), largely the result of good decision-making on driving opportunities.”
