Hanley knocks out Trojans
PORT ORCHARD With a 50-50 blend of seniors and freshmen the Kings West girls summer basketball team came back from a 35-30 deficit Tuesday at South Kitsap High School to top Olympic 36-35 as Taryn Hanley sank a deep 2-point shot with 25 seconds remaining.
The freshmen stepped up and played well and the people we expected to stepped up as well, KW co-coach Bryan Hanley said. Theyre responding to some of the stuff we want to do and getting more physical, tougher. They were on the floor getting the loose balls and they did a good job.
The younger Hanley hit back-to-back 3-pointers with 11 minutes to go in the second 20-minute half to bring the Lady Warriors within a point at 31-30.
It was a tough one, Oly coach Laurie Shaw said. We just beat North Mason right before this. Theyre playing hard and theyre learning.
Our shooting is looking better than it did last season and Kate Lucas is shooting the lights out.
The Warriors play two games Tuesday back at SKHS starting with the CK Mirage at 6:30 p.m. and North Mason at 7:30 p.m. Olympic has its hands full when they play against the always tough girls from Lincoln on Monday at Bremerton High School at 7:30 p.m.
