Central Kitsap didn’t have an answer for Foss’ speed.

Bremerton, once again, didn’t have an answer for its own imploding ways.

And Olympic High didn’t have an answer for just about anything Lincoln threw at the Trojans.

Yes, it was a tough night on Friday, Dec. 7 for Class 4A Narrows League Bridge Division boys basketball teams.

Visiting Foss belted the Cougars 72-54, Bellarmine handed Narrows Bridge favorite Bremerton its third straight loss, 55-49, and defending state champion Lincoln whipped Olympic, 83-46.

Elsewhere on that night, Wilson stopped Port Angeles 63-58 and Olympia beat North Kitsap 79-54.

South Kitsap (2-0), Gig Harbor (2-0) and Port Angeles (1-1) were the only Bridge Division schools to win during crossovers with the Bay Division.

In league openers tonight, South Kitsap hosts Bremerton at 6 p.m., Olympic entertains Port Angeles and North Kitsap is at Central Kitsap in 7:30 p.m. games. Gig Harbor has a bye.

Foss 72, at Central Kitsap 54 — Central, down 30-28 with five minutes left in the third quarter, came unglued late in the period as Foss scored 15 points in a 2:44 span to take control. Lukas Henne’s 18 points led CK (1-3).

At Bellarmine 55, Bremerton 49 — Offensive execution continued to plague the Knights, who were within a point heading into the final period. Marvin Williams’ 13 points led BHS (1-3).

At Lincoln 83, Olympic 46 — The Abes cranked it up early in their season opener against the Trojans (1-3), busting out to an 18-0 lead. Lincoln led 71-29 after three quarters.

Klahowya 70, at Crescent 12 — This was another mismatch as the Eagles (2-1) flew to a 21-0 lead after one quarter and led 37-4 at the half and 54-6 after three quarters.
