Girls basketball: Wolves fall to PA, will face Foster in district opener

A loss to their hardcourt rivals Thursday night nixed Sequim’s girls basketball team’s hopes of a share of the Olympic League 2A championship.

Eve Burke scored 19 points and Millie Long added 13 points as the Port Angeles Roughriders (12-0 in league, 16-4 overall) claimed the league title on Feb. 6 in both teams’ league finale.

With the loss, Sequim finishes the regular season 10-2 in league and 15-5 overall, second in league.

The Wolves will host Foster, the No. 8pseeded South Puget Sound League team, at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 12, at Rick Kaps Gymnasium, 601 N. Sequim Ave.

Led by head coach Linsay Rapelje, Sequim’ Wolves are quite familiar with Foster’s Bulldogs: Down by 18 points, Sequim used a 28-0 run over the final 12 minutes to knock off Foster 54-44 in the regional round of last season’s state 2A tournament.

But it’s not the same team Sequim faced last year. Foster doesn’t have any players who scored in last year’s regional game, and despite its 8-5 league record the Bulldogs are 9-11 overall. They failed to score at least 20 points in six games and dropped a 49-11 decision to Eatonville on Feb. 5 in a district seeding game.
