COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Peninsula College women, men crush Olympic

PORT ANGELES — The Peninsula women used a stifling defense and the men used a high-octane offense with both teams winning in dominating fashion over Olympic this weekend.

The women got off to a 23-2 start in the first quarter en route to a 79-24 win over the Trojans. Meanwhile, the men scored 47 points in the first half in a 92-69 win.

The women built up a lead of 63-14 after three quarters. They held the Trojans to just 17.9 percent shooting from the floor and 10 percent shooting (2 for 20) from 3-point range. For the entire game, Olympic made just 10 field goals.

The Pirates didn’t shoot that great from outside, either — 4 for 18 (22 percent), but they had a 52 to 27 edge in rebounding and took 17 more shots (73 to 56) than the Trojans.

Leilani Padilla led the Pirates with 23 points and four steals, while Logan Luke had 10 points and eight rebounds and Casandra White had 10 points. Sunshine Vicente had nine points and six rebounds, while Brianna Fitzgerald had nine points and six rebounds. Kameron Bowen had eight rebounds.

Peninsula (2-1, 9-5) plays a makeup game at 2 p.m. today against Skagit Valley (0-3, 6-9). This game was snowed out last week.
