Coaster ride continues
Bigger, faster, smarter and a lot more deadly with the ball. Thats the Lady Knights so far this season as they showed their offensive prowess Tuesday night in a 71-19 win at Klahowya.
Weve got more offense for sure, BHS coach Daniel McInnis said. Weve got kids that can put the ball in the hole and do some stuff.
The Knights (2-2) took control from the start of the game on offense and defense by taking a 12-0 lead by the end of the first quarter. Sophomore guard Jennifer Jacobs broke it wide open in the second quarter, scoring eight of Bremertons 26 points to lead 38-7 at the halftime buzzer. She finished with a career-high 23 points.
The Eagles (0-2) had their best output for about three minutes in the third quarter on an 8-0 run to pull within 42-17. Then the Bremerton girls retook control of the floor and outscored their hosts 27-2 in the final 12 minutes.
We got all the shots we wanted, first-year KSS coach Eric Greene said. We executed on offense, we just didnt finish.
Senior guard Brenda Baxter, who left the game two minutes into the fourth quarter when she reaggravated an ankle injury, lead Klahowya with 8 points.
The Knights sophomore Kayla Bennett dropped in 18 and sophomore center Vivian Frieson scored 12 as everyone in the Bremerton lineup put points on the board.
Weve got to balance the scoring out so were not always depending on one person, McInnis said.
All those points came at a price as the Knights made a few more turnovers than McInnis wanted to see.
They just have to be a little more patient, McInnis said. Our turnovers came from rushing too much. Were still young so were going to make those kinds of mistakes, but were a lot better in taking care of the ball.
Turnovers plagued the Knights on Wednesday night as they lost to Foss 73-54 in a non-league game.
Juniors Alishia Lindsay and Jessica Bollinger, both starters last year, missed out on both games this week due to academic ineligibility.
Its unknown if theyll be back in time to play North Mason Tuesday night in Belfair or Central Kitsap the following night in Silverdale as the Knights start their Bridge Division season at last years Narrows League champs.
