Move Over, Miami Heat! Here Come the KHS Buccaneers!


I don’t know about you, but I’m fed up with multi-million dollar egos. Last time I checked, there were 15 players on the Miami roster, not 3. The NBA seems more like a collection of thugs and gangsters than highly skilled professional athletes.

Fortunately, we have a much better sports venue right here in our own backyard!

Last night, I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Kingston High vs. Bremerton High Varsity Basketball game. You wouldn’t know that the Knights are 3-4 overall, 2-3 league by the way they played in the first period. They literally exploded onto the floor, putting up 11 points before the Bucs got on the scoreboard. They drained several 3-point shots and dominated in rebounds. It was 17-7 when the quarter was over.

I was sitting there, enduring the supportive cheers of the Bremerton faithful, and thinking this was going to be a very long and painful night.

Au Contraire!

Credit the Kingston squad (6-1 overall, 5-0 league) for not allowing the Knights explosive start to diminish their spirits. The Buccaneers fought back, slowly regaining lost ground, to end the half with the score tied 25-25.

A 13-2 run in the third period and an 8-0 run in the fourth sealed the victory for Kingston and ended with a final score of 62-48.

It was a complete team effort, utilizing a good portion of the bench, and extremely well orchestrated under the skilled direction of Head Coach Blake Conley.

The Bremerton team has some tremendous potential if they can just find a way to maintain their level of intensity throughout all 4 periods.

For only $6, I seriously doubt you could find a better entertainment value for your money!
