Boys basketball: Fife puts Wolves on the brink at districts

If they want to stay alive, the Wolves will need a big win against a familiar foe.

A 66-45 loss to Fife in the opening round of the West Central District tournament last week sends Sequim into the consolation bracket and needing three wins in just four days to advance to regionals.

That first test comes Feb. 14 when they take on the Olympic Trojans, a league foe they’ve seen twice this season.

Olympic routed Sequim 73-42 in Dec. 15 but Sequim closed the gap in their second meeting, falling 53-47 on Jan. 26.

Against Fife on Feb. 8, Sequim and Fife were knotted at 14-14 after one quarter. Fife held a 32-26 at halftime but made a big adjustment in the third frame, out-scoring Sequim 19-4.

The Wolves turned the ball over 29 times in the loss.

Nate Despain led Sequim with 16 points while Payton Glasser had 11 and Cole Williams added eight.

Malachi Afework led three Fife players in double figures with 16 points.

Olympic knocked off Steilacoom 59-30 in the district opening round but dropped a 69-49 decision to Renton in the district quarterfinals.

The winner of the Sequim-Olympic contest on Feb. 14 takes on the winner of a Franklin Pierce-Highline game on Feb. 16. The winner of that contest plays for the district’s fifth and final seed to the first round of the state’s regional tourney.
