Sequim got off to a strong start against a key league foe and rode a 20-point halftime lead to a 59-51 win at Bremerton on Dec. 11.
Erik Christiansen hit four 3-points en route to 21 points while Nate Despain nearly had a triple-double with 13 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, and added three steals in the victory.
“Any time you can go on the road, you’re happy to come out with a win,” said coach Greg Glasser. “We had to grind it out down the stretch.”
Glasser said the entire team played well, especially the bench.
“A number of guys stepped up,” he said. “We’re a little deeper than we have been. When we go to the bench, they respond.”
Kyler Rollness had eight points and Michael Young added six points and five rebounds.
The Wolves (3-0 in league play 5-1 overall) struggled from the free throw line (14 of 27, 52 percent) but held Bremerton to 34 percent shooting from the field.
