Port Angeles 65, Bremerton 41

PORT ANGELES — Playing 24 hours after a rivalry win over Sequim, the Roughriders came out a little flat against an improved Knights’ team.

“It was natural to have a letdown after such a big rivalry game,” Port Angeles coach Kasey Ulin said. “Bremerton is good, they are scrappy and athletic and made things difficult for us. We were solid defensively, but we were pretty flat offensively for two quarters. We challenged them at halftime to be their best and this is an experienced, veteran group, and they came out and responded. We were able to get some steals and get out for some transition scores and played with a lot of energy and emotion that was lacking in the first half. We stretched the lead to 34 points in the fourth and were able to get our reserves some valuable varsity playing time.”

Port Angeles (5-1, 9-4) will visit Clover Park (2-9) on Saturday. The Warriors have played the ninth-most difficult schedule of any Class 2A team thus far.

CHIMACUM — The Redhawks won the Widge Black Memorial Trophy after beating the rival Cowboys, but it wasn’t easy.

Port Townsend beat Chimacum 87-38 in the teams first meeting last month.

Chimacum trailed Port Townsend 30-26 at halftime of Tuesday’s contest.

“They played better, I give them credit,” Redhawks coach Tom Webster said of the Cowboys.

“They were at their place and its a tough environment.”

Webster said he challenged his team to play better and they responded well in the second half.

“We got after them hard at halftime and we played quite a bit better, especially on the defensive end,” Webster said.

“We were playing for the Widge Black Memorial Trophy, proud to keep the trophy in PT and for us that’s a pretty big deal.”

Widge Black was a longtime former coach for Port Townsend.

Cole Crawford scored 23 to pace the Redhawks.

“He played well, he was taking the ball hard to the hole,” Webster said.

Jayden Watkins had 10 points and Nico Winegar added 10 for Port Townsend. Issac Purser led Chimacum with 10 points.
