Women's basketball: Peninsula rocks Rangers

This one was over soon after it began.

Peninsula's women rebounded from a tough loss three days earlier with a 79-48 thrashing of the winless Olympic Rangers in Bremerton on Jan. 19.

Taylor Larson led Peninsula (3-2 in conference, 8-7 overall) with 21 points, Jesse Ellis had 17 points and Abigail Jones added 14 as P.C. raced to a 42-22 lead by halftime.

The Pirates held Olympic (0-5, 0-15) to 36 percent shooting from the field and just four free-throw attempts.

Jonica Durbin led the Pirates with six rebounds and four blocks.

Peninsula hit 34 of 62 from the field (55 percent), as Larson was 10-of-15 and Ellis sank 8-of-12 attempts.

P.C. forced 27 Ranger turnovers.

The Pirates are back in action at home tomorrow, Jan. 23, taking on Shoreline. The Dolphins (2-3, 8-7) are coming off a 59-56 win against Edmonds.
