A slow start spelled a bit of doom for the Peninsula Pirates at Olympic on Jan. 17, a 50-42 loss.

The host Rangers jumped out to a 15-6 lead after one quarter and never trailed after that, leading by as many as 13 down the stretch.

Ashlynn Sharp hit five 3-pointers and led Peninsula with 19 points while Jamellia Clark added nine points and 13 rebounds. Tiffany Smith added eight points and three steals.

Olympic held Peninsula to 14-of-62 (22.6 percent) shooting from the field, and the Rangers’ reserves out-scored Peninsula’s bench, 15-2.

Lexi Ioane led Olympic with 16 points and 13 rebounds.

Peninsula fell on the road three days later in as Bellevue’s Bulldogs doggedly defended their home court on Jan. 20, handing Peninsula a 57-42 loss.

Bellevue kept PC’s Sharp in check to the tune of 2-of-20 shooting from the field, 0-for-6 from 3-point range, and held Peninsula to 16-of-67 shooting overall (24 percent).

The host Bulldogs, despite missing all 12 3-point tires, out-scored PC 16-10 after one quarter and held a 32-20 lead by halftime.

Clark led the Pirates with 17 points and 10 rebounds. Sharp finished with four points, nine rebounds and five assists.

Molly Dixon led Bellevue with 18 points and Bulldog Brenda Akoto added 17 points and 11 rebounds.

The Pirates host Skagit Valley’s Cardinals on Jan. 24. Peninsula follows that with four straight road contests: Jan. 27 at Edmonds, Jan. 31 at Whatcom, Feb. 7 at Shoreline and Feb. 10 at Everett. The Pirates then host Olympic on Feb. 14.
