PREP BASKETBALL: Roughrider boys overwhelm Foster 92-69

PA girls lose to tall W.F. West squad

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles boys basketball team dominated the boards, especially on the offensive end, and blew out Foster 92-69 Saturday.

The Roughriders’ twin towers of Isaiah Shamp (6-foot-5) and Tyler Hunter (6-foot-7) combined for 53 points. Shamp got many of his points on a variety of clever post moves in the key while Hunter hunted offensive boards and putbacks all game long.

The game wasn’t even as close as the final score showed as Port Angeles built up a lead of 82-43 before letting up on the gas in the fourth quarter.

Coach Kasey Ulin said Foster is a good South Puget Sound League team.

“We’re going to pride ourselves on defense and rebounding,” said coach Kasey Ulin. “We were sharp and focused and crisp early.”

The Roughriders are a relatively young team that is junior-heavy and only has four seniors. “They’re very inexperienced but these guys have just bought in,” Ulin said.

Ulin said Hunter was relentless on the boards while he said of Shamp’s inside moves: “He’s like a little [Gonzaga’s] Drew Timme.”

The Riders built up a lead of 28-9 in the first quarter thanks largely to their rebounding. Port Angeles scored baskets on at least six offensive rebounds in the quarter.

Parker Nickerson also had 16 points while Nason Martinez hit a pair of 3-pointers for six points.

The Riders are averaging 89.5 points a game over their first two games.

Girls game W.F. West 56, Port Angeles 28

PORT ANGELES — The Port Angeles girls basketball team struggled in their season opener against a very tall and experienced W.F. West team that finished fourth in the state last year, falling 56-28.

The Roughriders got off to a slow start, falling behind 18-5 after the first quarter and had a rough finish to the game, getting outscored in the fourth 13-0. In the second and third quarters, Port Angeles actually held its own, only getting outscored 25-23.

The Riders had trouble inside with W.F. West’s 6-foot-3 post Julia Dalan, who finished with 29 points and a number of blocks and rebounds. At one point, the Riders triple-teamed her and she still was able to score. The Bearcats also started two other 6-foot players and a 5-foot-10 player.

“Out shots didn’t go down, but I liked our shot selection. We probably went into Dalan more than we wanted to,” said coach Michael Poindexter.

“We had some first-game jitters and that’s OK. It was not an ideal team for a first game,” Poindexter said.

Poindexter said that he did like his team’s scrappiness on defense and the fact that the Riders had a good third quarter, outscoring the Bearcats.

“We have time to develop,” he said.

Lexie Smith led the Riders with eight points and had a great block on the taller Dalan. Anna Petty scored seven and Teanna Clark hit a pair of 3-pointers for six points. Piper Williams had a great rebound and scoop shot at the end of the third quarter to beat the buzzer.

The Port Angeles boys (2-0) open Olympic 2A League play Tuesday with a home game at 7 p.m. against Bremerton (0-0). The Port Angeles girls (0-1) open league play at Bremerton (0-0) on Tuesday.
