hrider girls took a 57-27 win from Kingston in Olympic League basketball action, but the boys suffered a 61-37 loss at Kingston in their quest to move up a notch in the standings.
GIRLS - Port Angeles sped off to an 8-0 lead and were never headed as they throttled the Buccaneers with solid defense.
The Riders let Kingston hang around, leading 13-11 and then 21-17 at the half, but then the girls turned on the offense as well as the defense to record the lopsided win.
PA had a 20-8 third period advantage and the defense allowed just 16 points in the last three quarters.

BOYS - Coach Brent Stephens said the Riders did not do the things they have done the last three games and Kingston sped away to a 61-37 win.
The Bucs led 35-10 at halftime and pretty much decided the game, even though the Riders had a 14-8 third period advantage.
The loss drops the Riders to 2-8 in league play, five games from the 5th and final district spot. The Riders go to Klahowya Friday.
