Games at North Kitsap, Klahowya postponed Friday

High winds in western Washington were causing power outages and difficult travel conditions

POULSBO — The Dec. 14 Olympic League girls basketball contest between Olympic and North Kitsap has been postponed due to a power outage at North Kitsap High School.

The electricity went out at the high school during the girls junior varsity game. The lights came back on, but then went off again a few minutes later. Electrical outages have been reported throughout Kitsap County due to high winds.

By 6:30 p.m., the gymnasium was still dark and school district officials made the decision to postpone. The game has been rescheduled for 7 p.m. on Jan. 4 at North Kitsap, said Athletic Director Matt Stanford.

The game was set to feature two teams vying for a league title. Olympic was 2-0 in league play coming into Friday’s game while North Kitsap was 1-1. Both teams also face tough opponents in their next games on Tuesday, Dec. 18. Olympic travels to Port Angeles, and North Kitsap heads to Sequim.

Other cancellations

A home varsity doubleheader hosted by the Klahowya boys and girls basketball teams against Sequim were also postponed Friday due to windy conditions up in Sequim as well as a potential closure of the Hood Canal Bridge.

No makeup date has been announced. Klahowya AD Todd Winters said he wasn’t sure if the game would be made up at all since it is a non-league contest and because both Klahowya teams already have a large slate of non-league games.

“Our schedule is really full,” Winters said.

Both the boys and girls basketball games between Port Angeles and North Mason were postponed Friday as well.
