Kingston’s ironmen tire late, drop game to Port Angeles

KINGSTON — It was a one-score game for much of the night before injuries and fatigue finally caught up to the Bucs.

Two fourth-quarter touchdown passes by Port Angeles quarterback Brenden Roloson-Hines finally sunk Kingston, 28-6.

Garrett Sitting-Dog rushed for 128 yards and a touchdown on 13 carries, but the Kingston offense otherwise struggled to move the ball. Missing from the lineup was starting quarterback Leif Whalen, who was injured against Port Townsend.

Backup quarterback Joshuwa Reed did hit a couple of big plays early on. He completed his first three passes of the game, including a 36-yard connection to receiver Cameron Cheeseman, but the drive stalled out soon after and the Roughriders were able to jump out to an early lead.

Port Angeles capped a long first quarter drive with a 6-yard touchdown by Roloson-Hines. On Kingston’s next possession, a fumble ended up in the hands of safety Garrett Edwards, who returned the ball all the way to the end zone to give the Roughriders 14-0 lead.

The Bucs got on the board in the second quarter. Sitting-Dog burst through the right side of the line and rumbled for a 65-yard touchdown to pull Kingston back within a score.

The defense stood tall for a while, recovering four Roughrider fumbles and keeping the opposing team off the scoreboard for about 27 minutes despite plenty of offensive drives starting with good field position.

But with most of the players also taking snaps on offense, the defense eventually tired, yielding the two second-half passing touchdowns.

“As you can tell, we have something in the 20s suited up for varsity – not a lot of depth,” head coach Alec Grimm said. “We’re asking guys to do a lot out here, and I’m seeing everybody just give everything they have.”

Roloson-Hines threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to receiver Tyler Bowen. On his next drive, he hit Edwards for a 24-yard strike. Roloson-Hines finished the game 12-for-26 for 159 yards and two scores.
