In the final weekend of Dolphin basketball for the 2015 season, the Phins traveled to Port Angeles to take on the Peninsula Pirates. Both Pirate teams had previously qualified for at least a play-in game for the tournament and the Phins were looking to end the year on a high note.
The women were playing with 5 due to injuries against a Peninsula squad ranked #7 in the NWAC. The ladies forced 9 Pirates turnovers in the first half and held the team to 17% shooting from the arc. However, an off-shooting day gave Peninsula the win 87-20. Justice Perry led the team with 8 points and 11 boards. Magen Lloyd added 7 and 6 boards.
Perry finishes #4 on the NWAC Leaders List for rebounding with 202, an average of 9.18 per game. Lloyd finishes right behind her at #7, with a total of 186 and an average of 8.45 per game. Tara Bremer finishes #3 on the assists list with 101, a 5.05 per game average. She is also #4 on the steals list with 70 (3.5 avg/game). Perry shows up on 2 more leaderboards: #8 on the steal list with 67 steals and a 3.05 average and #5 on the blocks list with 40, a 1.82 per game average.

On the men’s side, Peninsula had qualified for at least a play-in game, depending how the rest of the schedule played out. Shoreline had been eliminated from playoff contention last Wednesday due to a last second shot made by Everett so this game was one of pride and finishing the year off well.
Austin Jordt and Adam Johnson both score to put the Phins up 4-0. The Pirates respond with a 10-5 run to go up 1. Antonio Foster hits a trey from the top of the arc to give Shoreline a two-point lead. From there, the Phins took advantage of poor Pirate shooting to built a 21 point halftime lead. Shoreline shot 48% in the first half. The Pirates shot 21%.
The second half was more of the same, Skyler Kelley hit a three a minute into the half to put the lead at 24, the largest of the game. Peninsula got as close as 14 but it was all Phins. Kelley finished with 15, on 3/5 shooting from the arc. He finishes #4 on the NWAC leaders list for the regular season with a season average of 47.2%. He also landed at #9 in free throw percentage, shooting 83.9% for the year. Ryan Reyes ended the game scoring 16 with 5 boards, 4 assist, and a block. He is #18 on the NWAC block leader list with 26, an average of 1 per game.
Adam Johnson finished with 14 points and 13 boards, along with 3 steals and 3 assists. Johnson had 7 double-doubles over the season. He landed #6 on the rebounding leaders list with 223 boards, an average of 9.29 per game. See the entire team’s seasons stats via the NWAC site.
We are extremely proud of the heart, grit, and determination both teams showed this season. We wish the sophomores the best of luck in their future pursuits. For those who will return, bring on 2015-16.
