Even though Mike Poindexter’s Port Angeles Lady Roughriders had played just two games since December, you would have never known that by the way Port Angeles blew out Olympic 74-23 last night in Silverdale. The Roughriders quickly grabbed a 20 – 0 lead in just the first three and a half minutes of the game. At the 4:26 mark of the second quarter, Roughrider 5’7″ Senor forward Eve Burke scored her 20th point of the game to make the score 36 – 3. Burke, who averages twenty points per game, had a career high 28 points although she played just half the game.
Poindexter gave a lot of valuable playing time to his bench showing off some talented under classmen for the future. Senior Jenna McGoff had a hot hand hitting for twelve points including two, three pointers. Senior point guard Anna Petty had her usual solid floor game and hit for ten points. The Roughriders JVs also won 39 – 18. Sophomore Ciara Cargo lead the Roughriders with ten points.
