Port Angeles 7, Olympic 0

SILVERDALE — The Roughriders remained undefeated on the season after taking down Olympic in their Narrows League opener on Wednesday, with the help of excellent pitching and a rock-solid defense.

Second baseman Dale Shofstahl, who went 1-for-3 at the plate with a home run and three RBIs, put in a tremendous defensive effort for Port Angeles, taking away four hits from the struggling Trojans.

“It was the best defensive performance I have ever seen from a high school player,” Roughriders head coach Bob Withrow said. “I’m telling you, this defense is rock solid.”

Despite having knee surgery five weeks ago, Cameron LeDuke pitched a complete game for the Riders (1-0 in league, 5-0 overall), giving up just four hits on seven strikeouts and four walks.

“He still hasn’t had his best game yet,” Withrow said. “He’s still not totally confident on it.”

LeDuke was 1-for-2 at the plate including a home run, giving him three on the season.

Also coming up big with the bat for Port Angeles was Chris Stone, who went 2-for-4 with an RBI double.

The Roughriders will host Olympic today at 3:30 p.m at Civic Field.
