Dru Clark hits game-winning floater to lift Port Angeles over traditional 2A power Lynden

Port Angeles took down 2A juggernaut Lynden when shot at the buzzer decided a low-scoring affair on Friday night.

Senior guard Dru Clark took an inbound pass three quarters the length of the court and hit a contested running floater over several outstretched defenders in the final seconds to give the Roughriders a 41-40 win at Port Angeles High School.

Clark took a handoff after the inbound and appeared to lose track of his dribble getting past Lynden senior Koby Whitman. But he gathered his dribble, let go of a floater in a sea of Lynden defenders and watched it bank in off the glass with about 3.5 seconds left.

The buzzer sounded as the Lions attempted a final look off of the ensuing baseline inbound.

Port Angeles boasts strong backcourt presence in senior Chase Cobb alongside Clark, and is poised to return nine seniors next season.

The Roughriders (8-2) are one of several Olympic League teams on a crash course atop the league standings, alongside Bainbridge (7-2 overall), Bremerton (7-0) and defending 2A state champ North Kitsap (9-1).

Lynden (4-1) is one of five Northwest Conference teams without a league loss.
