Redhawks, routed

Host 1A Port Townsend kept Sequim from running away with the game for a quarter, but a 30-5 run in the second quarter fueled a 70-28 Wolves blowout on Jan. 22.

Nate and Dallin Despain led a balanced attack, combining for 28 points and seven assists. Dallin shot 6-of-9 from the field and Nate hit three 3-pointers.

SHS post Hayden Eaton had 11 points, sinking all five field goal tires.
