SK preps 2-11

With a new Narrows League in place comes a new football schedule and South Kitsap’s 2006 lineup is as good as done according to coach D.J. Sigurdson.

South will play four home games, three road games and one at a neutral site and there is a good mixture of the old and the new on the lineup.

“It’s going to work out nice because we maintain the Narrows League, which is a good league, there’s a lot of tradition in that league,” Sigurdson said. “I also like it because it gives us the opportunity to go out and play some other rivalry games or go out and find a really good opponent.”

With the Narrows League dropping from a 16-team to an 11-team league, scheduling games was much easier this time around than compared to years past. South didn’t have a full nine-game schedule in place until late summer last season.

That’s not the case this year, although one game is still in the works but Sigurdson expects it to be a done deal by next week.

That would be the home-opener against Kentwood on Sept. 1. Sigurdson and Athletic Director Ed Santos are waiting word from Kentwood to close out the home-and-home series that would send the Wolves to Kentwood in 2007. South’s other non-league games are Sept. 8 against Lakes in the Tacoma Dome and Oct. 13 at home against Clover Park.

Narrows League home games include Central Kitsap Sept. 15 and Lincoln Sept. 22. South will travel to Wilson on Sept. 29, Foss Oct. 6 and Gig Harbor Oct. 20 for league match-ups. League cross-over games are scheduled for Oct. 27 with the state preliminary play-in game set for the weekend of Nov. 3-4.

South falls short against Bremerton: Despite losing to Bremerton 47-46 Wednesday night, the South Kitsap girl’s basketball team is still alive – albeit barely – for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Narrows League Bridge Division.

The Wolves, 5-14 overall and 4-9 in division play, are still just a game out of fourth and could ended up tied for the final spot with as many as three other teams.

South must have beaten Olympic late Friday night in the regular season finale to have any chance and will also need plenty of help. If South won and Port Angeles lost to Shelton, there would be a three-way tie for fourth place. If North defeated Bremerton, there would be a four-way tie with South having split its games with all three teams.

A tie-breaker would then come into play to decide which team would advance.

Bremerton 47, South Kitsap 46

South Kitsap — Jamie Boyer 5, Valerie Robinson 6, Kristen Conradi 7, Kristen Emel 1, Sharrisa Pauley 17, Catalina Borrero 2, Caiy Lieseke 4, Kaliegh Westermann 4, Erin Hegland, Ashlye Parker, Joyce Vaiaga’e.

Bremerton — Naomi Abad 10, Meagan Dashner 2, Jennifer Smalley 6, Candace Grettenberger 5, Jenn Jacobs 15, Patricia Lewis 7, Kelsey Tefft 2, Michelle Dubrall, Christina Lawrence.

Wolves’ JV crushes Bremerton: Gibson Davies scored 15 points Wednesday night to lead the South Kitsap boy’s junior varsity basketball team to an 82-42 win over Bremerton. Cory Hoffman scored 14 for the Wolves while Chip Pierson added 11. South moved to 9-6 on the year and closed out its season late Friday night at Olympic.

The South C played its best game of the year Tuesday at Sequim, ending its season on a winning note with a 44-36 win. Joe Seitz led the Wolves with 15 points while Everson Theus scored eight and Hayden Ritter seven. South ended its season with a record of 5-11.
