PREP BASKETBALL: Clallam Bay boys hold back Crescent; Sequim, Forks, Neah Bay win

JOYCE — A 9-0 second quarter boosted Clallam Bay to a 48-42 North Olympic League win over Crescent.

Ryan McCoy led the way with 20 points and Caiton Smith added 13 for the Bruins. (2-1, 4-4) in Thursday’s contest.

“Obviously, the second quarter was a real-bug-a-boo,” Crescent coach Chris Ferrier said. “We got real tentative and we weren’t real sure what we wanted to do against their zone and we had a hard time getting shots up, let alone scoring points.”

“We got after it in the fourth quarter, but the deficit was a little too large with our offensive struggles. We’d get a stop and then come down and not get a decent shot and they’d come back and hit a three.”

Ferrier gave credit to the Bruins.

“[Coach] Kelly [Gregory] does a really good job with that team,” Ferrier said. “They know exactly what to do to be successful. We had a really hard time with Clallam Bay’s hustle.”

Crescent (1-2, 4-6) visits Chief Kitsap on Wednesday.

“Baysinger had a great night, he did lots of great things in close to the basket,” coach Rick Gooding said.
