January 21st, 2014 - 8:52pm
The Rider boys roared ahead early, then held off a Kingston fourth quarter rally to get a 63-57 win, but the Port Angeles girls struggled with offense and could not clamp down on a Kingston offense, suffering a 46-35 loss, their first in league play.
BOYS - Kingston scored the first basket, then the Riders ran off 18 in a row to grab an 18-3 first period lead, but the Bucs settled down and actually outscored the Riders 53-45 the rest of the way.
The Riders (7-4, 9-6) led at the half, 30-16 and took a 54-37 lead into the last period, but poor free throw shooing (3/12 last period) kept Kingston in the game and a Buc flurry of points closed the gap.
Hunter Hathaway paced the Riders with 21, Cameron Burns had 10. Cole
Rabadeaux had 18 for the Bucs, Colin Veilleux had 10.
GIRLS - Kingston broke open a 20-20 halftime by scoring 19 points in the third stanza in their upset of the Riders, who fell to 10-1 in league play.
The Riders had trouble both on offense and defense and could not stop Caitlin Carper, who had 16, Maddie Hinrichs had 14, Baylee Jones 10 for the Riders.
The Riders are two games ahead of Kingston and Olympic for the top spot in the league and top seed to district.
