SILVERDALE — Jayson Brocklesby lit up the scoreboard again with 32 points to spark the Sequim boys basketball team past Klahowya in Olympic League action.
The Wolves blasted the Eagles 70-36 Friday night to remain tied for first with Olympic, which beat North Mason 76-33 Friday.
Both teams have identical 11-1 league and 13-3 overall records.
The Wolves surged in the second quarter against the Eagles, outscoring them 26-9 and taking control of the game with a 43-18 lead at halftime.
“We really came out in the second quarter playing better offense, and we really knocked them down on defense, too,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said.
The Wolves dished out 20 assists and played well as a team, Glasser added.
“We played textbook basketball. It’s good to see that as we head into the postseason.”
The Wolves next play their final home game of the season Tuesday night against North Kitsap (7-4, 8-7) and then concludes the season with three road games.
The first of those is at archrival Port Angeles (2-11, 3-14) on Thursday night.

He also had seven rebounds and four steals while Rory Kallappa added 10 points and six boards and Gabe Carter earned nine points, nine rebounds, five assists and two blocked shots.
Erik Christensen, meanwhile, netted nine points, grabbed eight rebounds and had two blocks.
