Port Angeles 4, Central Kitsap 3

SILVERDALE — The Riders won a close match behind the strength of their doubles duos and a gutty performance from Zane Glassock at No. 3 singles, according to coach Brian Gundersen.

“We have some younger guys getting varsity experience and I was really proud of their poise and execution today,” Gundersen said. “Our only path to victory was winning the last two matches of the day and the guys found a way to pull them out.”

Gundersen singled out Joe Hill and Kellen Garcelon as the players of the match. “Joe and Kellen are two sophomores getting their first taste of varsity action, and after losing the first set, they didn’t panic. They went back to the drawing board and found a way to win an important match.” PA hosts East Jefferson on Thursday.
