Boys basketball: Wolves edge Bulldogs in OT

First league game, first league win … but it took some extra time.

Sequim out-scored host North Mason 7-4 in overtime to escape with an all-important 47-44 league victory on Dec. 6 in Belfair.

Payton Glasser led the way with 22 points on 9-of-17 shooting and added 12 rebounds and five blocks.

North Mason led 16-12 by halftime but the Wolves crept ahead 24-23 after three quarters before the teams knotted the score after a high-scoring, back-and-forth fourth quarter.

With both teams struggling from the field — Sequim shot 30 percent, the Bulldogs 26 percent — Glasser’s and teammate Cole Williams’ combined nine offensive rebounds kept the Wolves in the game.

Nate Despain aided the Wolves’ effort with nine points, four steals and six rebounds while fellow guard Kyler Rollness added eight points, including a pair of key 3-pointers. Keeshawn Whitney chipped in with four points and three assists.

Trey Fisher led the Bulldogs with 18 points and Miller Campbell added 10 points.

Sequim wins battle of Wolves

Sequim dominated a pair of games against Coupeville last season, and things didn’t get any easier for the Wolves from Whidbey Island.

Glasser had 30 points on 11-of-18 shooting and added nine rebounds in a 59-35, non-league win at Coupeville on Dec. 8.

The win helped Sequim start 3-0 for the first time since 2013-2014.

Sequim dominated the glass, out-rebounding the host Wolves 42-21 — including 19 offensive caroms.

Despain, a 5-9 guard, led the way for SHS with 12 rebounds and added a team-high five assists.

Sequim post Riley Cowan chipped in 11 points and eight rebounds.

Hunter Smith led Coupeville with 11 points.

Looking ahead

Sequim was slated to host a non-league match-up with Neah Bay on Dec. 12.

The Wolves are at Port Angeles on Dec. 13 — a rare double-header with the SHS-PA girls playing at 5:45 p.m. and boys at 7:15 p.m. — before hosting Olympic on Dec. 15.
