SCC Women’s Basketball Losing Streak Hits 5 As Shooting Problems Continue:

The struggling Lady Dolphin basketball team lost to Peninsula College on Wednesday night in Port Angeles, 65-45, to run their losing streak to 5 games. After starting the season a promising 5-5 overall and 1-1 in the region, the loss of second leading scorer, Lynsey Sandum, who was averaging 10 points a game and was the major inside force for the SCC squad has lead to a scoring drought for the team and five straight losses.

Jenny Voss was the leading scorer for SCC, with 15 points. Gnanamani Hooyman scored 10 points for the Dolphins and added 7 rebounds, but only shot 3 for 10 from the field.

Shoreline was down 32-20 in the first half, shooting only 24% from the field in the first half. Things did improve in the second half, again shooting 24% from the field and the SCC only hit 13 of 26 from the free throw line.

The Lady Dolphins record now stands at 5-10 for the season and 1-6 in the NWAACC Northern Region. Peninsula moved to 5-12 on the season and 2-6 in the region. SCC faces Everett Community College on Saturday afternoon in the SCC Gym at 2:00 PM to complete the first half of the Northern Region schedule.

SCC Men’s Basketball Drops Second Straight Overtime Game On the Road:

A snake-bit Shoreline Community College men’s basketball team dropped an overtime game to Peninsula College on Wednesday night in Port Angeles, WA by the score of 87-83. The Dolphins also lost an overtime game to Edmonds CC on Saturday at ECC in a 88-84 battle. The defending Northern Region Champions now find themselves in tie for 5th place in the NWAACC Northern Region with North Seattle CC. The top four teams in the region go to the NWAACC Championship and Shoreline trails Whatcom CC now by one game for the fourth position.

Shoreline led by one point at half, 40-39. Peninsula outscored SCC by one in the second half to send the game into overtime. Zach Kelsh had a bit night for SCC with 24 points and 10 rebounds. Sean Jones continued with a hot hand and added 19 points on the night. Alfie Miller also added 15 points and Blayne Clanton 10 but the Peninsula bench outscored SCC bench 28 to 8 as Shoreline depth has been reduced by injuries and defections from the team.

The Dolphins now are 10-7 over, 3-4 in the Northern Region. Peninsula moved to 12-5 overall and leads the region with a 7-1 record. Shoreline faces Everett CC on Saturday at 4:00 PM in the SCC Gym.
