Girls basketball: Wolves cruise to win behind Glasser’s 25 points

Glasser nearly earns triple-double as Sequim grabs 49 point win

The Sequim Wolves girls basketball team powered their way to a 76-27 win over the Bremerton Knights on Dec. 17, continuing their undefeated start to the season and running out to a 3-0 Olympic League record (6-0 overall).

The Wolves scored just 11 points in the first quarter, but poured in 25 points in the second quarter before scoring 20 in each of the third and fourth to put the game away.

“We got off to a slow start with many shot opportunities that were not going in,” Wolves head coach Linsay Rapelje said.

“We came out much more solid in the second half with our fast break and more intense defense.”

That “intense defense” allowed the Knights to score no more than 10 points in any quarter, giving up just two points in the second quarter — the second time the Wolves have held foes to two points in a frame this season.

Hope Glasser led the way in scoring for the Wolves with a season-high 25 points, along with nine rebounds and nine steals to nearly earn a triple-double.

Melissa Porter added a double-double with 11 points and 13 rebounds, Jayla Julmist had eight points and 13 rebounds, and freshman Hannah Bates added 14 points.

Looking ahead

The Wolves head to the Cloud 9 Classic tournament in Lynden, facing the Sehome Mariners at 6:15 p.m. on Dec. 27, and then playing the Lynden Christian Lyncs at 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 28.

After the new year, the Wolves head back out on the road for a pair on non-league games, the first against the Edmonds-Woodway Warriors, a division 3A team, on Jan. 2, and then on Jan. 4 facing the Tumwater Thunderbirds.

Their Olympic League schedule resumes on Jan. 10 with a road game against the Olympic Trojans, then on Jan. 14 the Wolves play in their first home game in a month against the Port Angeles Roughriders at 5:45 p.m.
