White River 52, Sequim 49
LAKEWOOD — The Wolves came charging back in the second half but couldn’t quite catch the Hornets in the West Central District championship quarterfinals.
The Hornets, 19-5 and ranked No. 7 in state, advanced to the semifinals while the Wolves slipped into a loser-out consolation game Saturday.
White River qualified for the regional championships with the victory and can finish no worse than fifth place at district.
Against White River, the Wolves fell behind 26-14 at the break but rallied back to within a point with 12 seconds to go in the fourth quarter.
“We dug a little bit of a hole in the first half,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said.
“We didn’t move so well offensively. We did better in the third quarter and played with them, but we really cut into their lead in the fourth quarter but fell a little bit short.
“I’m real proud of the way our guys battled back and never quit.”
Webb on fire
Sequim senior Corbin Webb drilled in a game-high 23 points while Gabe Carter pulled down 10 rebounds.
“Corbin kept us right in the game and Gabe was huge on the boards,” Glasser said.
In addition, Evan Hill did a great defensive job on White River’s Billy Kiel, Glasser said.
Kiel, who averages 19 points a game, was held to eight points.
Chad Saylor was the top scorer for the Hornets with 15 points while Jason Tyler added 11.
The final score is a little garbled.
Glasser said that at the end of the game the scores did not balance and officials gave White River an extra point. He said he thought that was a little odd.
