Boys basketball: Trojans edge Wolves in OT to end Sequim’s season

In the end, it was a familiar foe ushering Sequim out of the West Central District playoffs — and in a heartbreaking fashion, no less.

Sequim held a lead for much of the game but fell 55-49 in overtime to the Olympic Trojans in the district consolation quarterfinals at Wilson High School in Tacoma on Feb. 14, ending the Wolves’ season with a 10-12 mark.

Nate Despain scored 17 points while Payton Glasser and Cole Williams added 13 points each to lead Sequim.

Olympic’s Jayden Mosley led all scorers with 27 points while Trojan Evan Turnquist added 10 points and 14 rebounds.

The Trojans held Glasser, Sequim’s leading scorer this season at 19.6 points per game, to 6-of-22 shooting. But following back-to-back offensive rebounds by the Wolves, the SHS senior helped the Wolves stay alive with a 3-pointer at the buzzer to knot the game at 44-44.

In overtime, Olympic scored the first six points and hit five key free throws down the stretch the clinch the win, out-scoring Sequim 11-5 in the extra frame.

Sequim held a 16-6 lead after one quarter, sinking four triples in the first frame. Olympic responded with a 15-4 run in the second quarter, 11 coming from Mosley.

The Wolves managed to get in front of the Trojans 35-31 after three quarters, but Olympic responded again with a 13-6 run to set up Glasser’s shot that sent the game into extra time.

Glasser, who finishes his career in sixth place on the all-time SHS scoring list with 1,098 points, also had eight rebounds in the loss.

Despain had four assists and three steals, and Williams hit three of four 3-point tries; he was 1-for-8 from that range coming into the game.
