Boys basketball: Wolves fall in match-ups with Knights, Kitsap squads

After a season-opening win against Forks, Sequim’s boys basketball team ran into some stiff competition last week and early this week, dropping a trio of games to fall to 1-3.

On Dec. 7, the Wolves were stymied by 11 3-point baskets by Bainbridge in a 57-44 Olympic League road loss.

“They shot the 3 very well,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said of the Spartans. “We cut their 15-point halftime lead to seven at one point in the fourth quarter, but they answered with a three.”

Tyler Mooney led the Wolves with 10 points, while Cole Smithson and Keenan Green each added eight.

Two days later, the Wolves hosted an athletic Bremerton team that jumped out to a 37-25 lead by halftime and ran away with a 78-53 victory.

Kanye Taylor scored 18 of his 30 points in the first half. The Knights, who also got 23 points from Ruppe Wilson, out-scored Sequim by 13 (21-8) in the third quarter to seal the win.

Bremerton shot 11-of-21 from 3-point range.

Isaiah Moore led the Wolves with 16 points while Keenan Green had 14 points, sinking three 3-pointers. Jayden Possin added 11.

On Dec. 13, a trio of scorers led 3A Central Kitsap to a 75-52 win over Sequim in Silverdale.

Jo Jo Johnson (21 points), Payton Davis (20) and Darnell Green (19) paced the host Cougars in the non-league win.

Moore and Possin scored 11 points apiece while Mooney added 10 in the loss.

The Wolves were slated to play at North Kitsap on Dec. 14 — results were unavailable at press time.
