Defense makes difference continued from page B-1 "Offensively, there weren't any huge plays," Hinkle said. "It was steady, move the chains, eat the clock play. It was their best game overall. They were real disci- plined." The Highclimber de- fense made a few big plays, Hinkle said. One highlight came from sophomore line- backer Dylan Paul. On the opening kickoff, Paul forced a Mount Tahoma fumble and then recov- ered it. He forced two more fumbles throughout the game, recovering one of them. "That was a unique experience," Hinkle said. "I don't think I've seen one player force that many fumbles and recov- er that many." Senior linebacker Bri- an Nault led Shelton's defense with eight tack- les, four of which were for a loss. Senior defen- sive back Gabe Reyna had five tackles and six tackles for loss. Hinkle praised soph- omore defensive back Kyle Kimball, Who had five tackles, an intercep- tion and a pass deflec- tion. "That's pretty good production from a defen- sive back," Hinkle said. Offensively, senior running back Jake Henry pounded the field for Shel- ton. Henry amassed 268 yards on 38 carries and scored three touchdowns. Nault, as a fullback, contributed 120 yards on six carries with one touchdown. Senior quarterback Jake Beck scored on a 1-yard run. In total, Shelten rushed for 395 yards and held Mount Tahoma to 196 rushing yards. Hinkle said penalties hurt Mount Tahoma's ground game. Mount Tahoma com- mitted 14 penalties for 125 yards. In a steady, hard rain, the passing games for both teams suffered. Beck completed 2-of-4 attempts for nine yards, while Mount Tahoma threw for just 21 yards. "(The weather) helped level the playing field a little bit," Hinkle said. The Highclimbers' (2- 6) final 3A Narrows League contest is 7 p.m. tomorrow at Capital (6-2). "It's an opportunity to see how we stack up against the second best team in the league," Hinkle said. "Hopefully, the kids will continue to make progress. They've steadily improved their fundamental skills." Thursday, Oct. 30, 2014 - Mason County Journal - Page B-5 By EMILY HANSON emib @masoncoun com With a victory against Lincoln last week, the Shelton volleyball team se- cured a fourth-place seed into the 3A Narrows League tournament. Shelton defeated Lincoln 26-24, 15-25, 25-13, 25-22 on Oct. 20 in Tacoma. The two teams are now tied for fourth in the league. The league tournament is Satur- day at Mount Tahoma. "This was a funny match," head coach Steve Beck said. %Ve couldn't pass, but we hit well in game one, passed fine in game two but had ten hitting errors. Lincoln made lots of errors game three and game four got close when (sophomore) Kaitlyn Pallor went down with a sprained ankle." Sophomore Matti Meacham led the Lady Highclimbers, serving 25-of-25 with nine digs, while junior Kiara Budge served 18-of-19 with one ace, 26 assists and 12 digs. Senior Heather Johnson served 16- of-17 with one ace and seven kills. Senior Georgette Lugalia served 12-of-12 with 19 digs. "It was nice to win, as Lincoln beat us the first time around," Beck said. Beck said he figures Shelton wins the tiebreaker against Lin- coln because the Lady Highclimb- ers scored more points in their loss against Lincoln than Lincoln scored Oct. 20. Shelton then defeated Foss 25- 15, 25-9, 25-6 on Oct. 22 in the Mini Dome. "We had fun; that was our goal," Beck said. "Foss struggled a little bit, so we had to work on consistency." He said it's hard for a team to maintain its focus when playing a less skilled team, such as Foss. "It helped because it was senior night and our bench was so good at hooting and hollering," Beck said. "That helped keep them focused and have fun." Johnson led the team, serving 19- of-20 with five aces and three kills, Budge and senior Lauren Dagle beth served 12-of-13 with one ace each. Budge had seven digs and 18 assists, while Dagle had six digs. Lugalia served ll-of-ll with five aces and nine digs.

Finally, Shelton won a nonleague contest Oct. 23. The Lady High- climbers defeated Peninsula 19-25, 26-24, 25-21, 16-25, 15-7 in the Mini Dome. "Peninsula was a great match for us," Beck said. "We played our best all-around mental game. Volleyball is a moody game. You have to be able to, as a team, work together to control the flow. So much of this is confidence and experience." ........ Meacham led the team, serving 30-ot"-31 with four aces and 12 digs, while Johnson served 17-of-19 with four aces and six kills. Budge served 14-of-15 with two aces, 21 digs and 34 assists. Finally, Lugalia served 14-of-15 with 18 digs. All of the teams at the league tour- nament Saturday will advance to the 3A West Central District III Tourna- ment on Nov. 7 and 8. "What we are playing for at league is seeding into districts," Beck said. I enjoy watching teams have fun while playing continued from page B-2 So often at games, I see stressed out athletes, coaches and fans focused Shelten secured its postseason future the week before, but I was still happy to see it. And a bonus of the athletes and "if Sequim and Port Angeles win, we will have a three-way tie for two of the playoff spots, if Sequim wins and Port Angeles loses, we are the fourth-place team, If Port Angeles wins and Sequim loses, we are the third- place team," Jeff Bevers, NMHS head football coach .ogs: Playoffs depend on Port Angeles, Sequim games tomorrow continued from page B-1 "There is a scenario that could play out this Friday," Bevers said. "If Sequim and Port An- geles win, we will have a three-way tie for two of the playoff spots. If Sequim wins and Port Angeles loses, we are the fourth-place team. If Port Angeles wins and Sequim loses, we are the third-place team. If both teams lose, we are the third-place team." North Mason took an early 7-6 lead Friday night when senior wide receiver Daniel Burg- graaf scored on a 13-yard run and junior Mi- chael Gurgens made the PAT in the first quar- ter. Both teams scored the game's remaining points in the third quarter.

Rhinehart led the Bulldogs on the field, rush- ing for 38 yards on 23 carries. Burggraaf was BeckelZs favored receiver. He caught three passes for 77 yards. "Bremerton was playing a really physical game and it seemed defense had the advantage of the game," Bevers said. Burggraaf led the Bulldogs' defense with eight tackles, while junior Zac Marsh had sev- en. Rhinehart and senior Jakob Urdahl contrib- Uted six tackles each. North Mason will play Klahowya (4-4) at 7:15 p.m. tomorrow at Silverdale Stadium in Bremerton in a nonleague contest. "Klahowya is a much-improved football team and they are really playing good right now," Bevers said. "Offensively, they can score a lot of points, so we will have our work cut out for us on defense." on victory and seemingly nothing else. coaches having fun themselves was Only on rare occasions do I see smiles that I enjoyed taking photos of the on the sidelines, laughter on the court match, listening to the bench cheer and a fun time had by all. on their teammates and watching I'm sure fun came easier because Shelton achieve a home victory. ~ [ soon they'U fall out of shape (become PHYSICAL THERAPY &[ ] "deconditioned" or "detrained").
