JOYCE — The Loggers barely survived the Bruins to win the game and claim a spot in next month’s tri-district tournament.
Crescent led by six heading into the fourth quarter, but saw four starters foul out while Clallam Bay was mounting a comeback.
The Bruins had a chance to win with two seconds left, but were unable to make the shot.

For Clallam Bay, Kenna Welever had a game-high 16 points.

SEQUIM — The Wolves won their third straight game Friday behind Alexas Besand’s 16-point 13-rebound effort.
The win keeps Sequim in the driver’s seat toward a spot in the district tournament.
The Olympic League’s top five 2A teams advance to districts. The Wolves (5-7, 7-9) currently sit a half game ahead of Kingston (4-7, 6-9) in the chase of the league final berth.
Sequim’s recent string of success has been in large part due to increased contributions from the players around Besand.
On Friday night, Caitlin Stofferahn scored eight points, Elise Beuke had six and Columbia Haupt finished with five.
The Wolves have a key week ahead of them, with road games against two of the league’s best, North Kitsap and Port Angeles.
Kingston’s schedule isn’t much easier, as they face North Kitsap twice with a game against North Mason sandwiched in between.

TACOMA — The Rangers showed their grit by playing the Sea-Tac League’s top-ranked team Thursday night, despite eight of nine players battling sickness.
“We gave the Hawks a game, and if it had not been for our poor first quarter, the outcome may have been different,” Quilcene coach Briana Weller said.
“My girls played their hearts out.
“They put up a solid defensive effort and worked as a team to spread the points around offensively.”
Senior Andrea Lara, who recently returned from a concussion, led the team with seven points, while Sammy Rae and Jerrica Viloria each had six and Megan Weller had four.
Mount Rainier Lutheran led 24-5 after one quarter, but was outscored by the Rangers over the final three quarters.
