Against Bremerton, Oly led 28-27 at the half, but the Knights fired off 41 second-half points.
We started out great, hitting on all cylinders offensively, and then struggled mightily for the remainder of the game, Oly coach Tyson Whitfield said. We definitely had our opportunities, but missed too many key lay-ups and couldnt get stops on defense.
Ryan Neal scored 22 in the loss.
