Wolves cruise to win over Knights

Considering the Bremerton High School girls basketball team lost to South Kitsap 99-19 last year, the 72-42 loss to SK Wednesday could be deemed a step in the right direction for the Knights.

Last year the Wolves led 28-2 after the first quarter and the game was over.

This time around the Knights hung around until the Wolves pulled away in the fourth quarter with a 19-5 run.

SK was never threatened, but Bremerton only trailed by four points after the first quarter and 13 points at the half.

SK extended its lead to 16 points after the third quarter but the Knights hit the wall in the fourth quarter.

SK coach Mike Allen didn’t stick with his starting five for most of the game, however.

He was able to give all his players some court time.

“We needed a game like this,” Allen said. “We needed something where we could get out and run and execute our stuff. It was a little bit cruise control, but it’s also a chance to beat somebody else up instead of ourselves.”

SK guard Rebekah Proctor played the equivalent of two and half quarters but still managed to score a game-high 19 points.

Jamae Feddock used her six-foot frame to score 12 points, grab 13 rebounds, and block five shots.

Sarah Groves had a strong all-around game with seven points, six assists and four steals.

Carly Riggs added a career-high 11 points.

Bremerton was paced by MarCia Adams’ 13 points. Alisha White, Tara Shively and Christina Fontenette each chipped in seven points.

While the Knights played even with SK for two quarters, in the other two quarters SK exposed Bremerton’s lack of size and depth.

The Knights didn’t help themselves by turning the ball over 29 times.

SK improved its record to 2-3 overall, 1-0 in the Narrows League Bridge Division going into last night’s home game against North Kitsap.

Allen said the early 0-3 start may be the best thing to happen to his team.

“We scheduled ourselves against some tough opponents and it made us better for it,” Allen said. “We’re still fighting through some things and injuries.”

The injury is to junior post Kristin Myles, who had an MRI on her knees Thursday.

Allen said he doesn’t know what the extent of the injury is.

“It could be a short while or it could be long,” he said. “I hope it’s short.”
