SPORTS: Port Angeles boys basketball smashes Olympic; other prep reports

PORT ANGELES — Steve Rogers sparked a balanced scoring attack with 13 points as the Port Angeles boys basketball team won its second game of the year Tuesday night.

The Roughriders beat Olympic of Silverdale 60-48 in Olympic League competition to improve to 1-1 in league and 2-1 overall.

Port Angeles was on fire in the first half, leading 37-20 at halftime.

“We played a fantastic first half,” Port Angeles coach Wes Armstrong said.

And it wasn’t just good scoring.

“We played good man-to-man defense,” Armstrong said.

“Olympic turned the ball over and we took advantage.”

Rogers added nine rebounds while Antonio Stevenson canned 11 points and Justin Williams added nine.

Olympic’s Trent Gallagher ripped the nets for 27 points. He had 12 points in the fourth quarter alone but the game was long over by then.

The Riders next host Kingston on Friday night.

FORKS — The Spartans (2-1) rode a strong second half to a harder-than-expected victory over the Elks on Tuesday night.

Forks turned on the defense in the final two quarters, holding 1B Lake Quinault to just 16 points for the nonleague win.

“They came out and they played hard [in the second half],” Forks for Scott Justus said.

“They played the best basketball we’ve played all season.”

Alexis Ayala and Braden Decker were particularly potent in a 21-7 Forks fourth quarter.

Ayala scored six of his 12 points during that time, while Decker had four points and three assists.

“They both played great defense and took care of the ball, which is something we haven’t been doing,” Justus said.

Franks Noles added 12 points for the Spartans, and Tyler Penn 11.

Forks hosts North Beach on Saturday night in another nonleague contest.
