KINGSTON — The Kingston Cavaliers girls’ basketball team continued its Cinderella season Monday, beating cross-town rivals the Poulsbo Panthers 46-33.

For the Cavs, Jade Niemeyer led the way with 12 points and 14 rebounds and Riley Watts scored 11. For Poulsbo, Leah Seim-Brown scored 10 and K.C. Fossom added 9 in the losing effort.

“This wasn’t one of our best games,” Kingston coach Tony Chisholm said. “This was night and day compared to (last week’s CK win). But we pulled through despite tons of turnovers.”

Kingston compiled a 22-point led in the third quarter, when Chisholm pulled his starters out. When Poulsbo rallied, however, the Cavaliers coach had to put his starting five back in the game. But for the Panthers, it was too little, too late.

“Time was Poulsbo’s enemy today,” Chisholm commented.

He also credited the victory to Niemeyer, whose 14 rebounds helped bring home a victory and Natalie Warford, who shot a critical five-for-eight from the free throw line.

Kingston puts its 10-0 record on the line against Bremerton at 3 p.m. today in Kingston. The Cavaliers’ final game of the year will come against Ridgetop March 29. Poulsbo (5-5) finishes the season on the road at Sedgwick March 25 and at Marcus Whitman March 29. Both contests start at 3 p.m.

“We aren’t out of the woods yet,” Chisholm added.
