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.

Keoni Laguana led the Knights with 19 points.

On Dec. 14, Sequim was slated to play 1A Klahowya in Silverdale but saw the non-league game canceled following high-wind storm that struck the Olympic Peninsula.

Looking ahead

Sequim was scheduled to play Olympic League co-leader North Kitsap on Dec. 18 — results were not available at press time.

The Wolves are at Crosspoint (Silverdale) to take on the 2B Warriors on Dec. 19, and are back in Silverdale on Dec. 21 to take on Olympic.

Sequim is on the road during winter break at the Crush the Slush tourney, battling 3A powerhouse at 10:25 a.m. on Dec. 28 before playing Port Townsend at 6:45 p.m. on Dec. 29.
