Both the Class 1A Spartans and the Class 1B Bruins are moving on to the postseason.
Forks was led by Leo Gonazales' 20-point effort.
“Leo did most of his work in the second and third quarters,” Forks coach Rick Gooding said following Wednesday's game.
Clallam Bay controlled the tempo early and held a 10-9 lead after one quarter.
“They did a good job slowing it down,” Gooding said of the Bruins.
“[Clallam Bay coach] Kelly [Gregory] has his kids working hard. They have some talent.”
The Spartans were without top guard Colton Raben, who missed the game to recover from recent injuries.
“It was good to get some other guys some playing time,” Gooding said.
In Raben's absence, Forks received six points from Ish Greene, five from Austin Pegram and four from Reis Lawson.
Kelly Gregory led Clallam Bay with 11 points, while Casey Randall and Sam Signor each contributed nine.
Randall fouled out in the fourth quarter, leaving the Bruins with only four healthy players.
For the remainder of the game, Forks would use five player on defense and four on offense.
The Spartans next play either La Center or King's Way Christian in a District IV play-in game at Castle Rock High School on Tuesday.
Clallam Bay will have a play-in game for the 1B Tri-District tournament on Saturday, Feb. 15.
