PREP BASKETBALL ROUNDUP: Forks throttles Tenino, earns second seed to playoffs

TENINO — Forks grabbed the No. 2 seed in the Evergreen 1A League with a 68-26 win over Tenino.

The Spartans (6-2, 14-6) ended the regular season by winning four out of their last five.

“Now, this is the part of the season that gets fun,” coach Rick Gooding said.

Gooding was pleased that in Friday’s win, the Spartans had seven or eight players with multiple assists.

“It’s our guys being committed to loving assists and rebounds,” Gooding said.

Forks’ 6-9 post Marky Adams continued his recent hot streak, scoring 21 points in limited minutes. Adams is averaging 26 points a game over his past five games.

Parker Browning had 13 points, 12 rebounds and four assists, while Austin Flores had 13 points, four rebounds and three assists.

As the Evergreen 1A No. 2 seed, Forks next plays the Trico No. 3 seed on Thursday, likely in Hoquaim. Forks’ likely opponent will be Stevenson, which still has a couple of make-up games to play next week, so that could change.

Port Townsend 77, Klahowya 33

SILVERDALE — The Redhawks squeezed the Eagles defensively, using mostly man-to-man defense to roll to an Olympic League 1A Division win.

Port Townsend head coach Tom Webster thought his team played a solid game.

“Klahowya are still in the playoff chase, and it was senior night and we had only beat them by 10 on our own floor last time, so I would bet they thought it would be a good gae.

“But we came out smoking up 15-2 and went from there.”

Four Port Townsend players finished in double figures in scoring. Berkely Hill had 19 to lead all scorers. Detrius Kelsall was just behind with 18, freshman Noa Montoya hit for 13 and Kaiden Parcher added 12.

Kelsall held down Klahowya’s leading scorer John Hartford on the defensive end.

“Detrius guarded him and basically held him scoreless,” Webster said.

“Hartford got one hoop but that was in transition so that was good.

“We just executed real well offensively.”

Port Townsend hit eight 3-point shots and connected on 15 of 20 free throws.

The Redhawks (8-0, 14-4) wrapped regular season play with a game against Coupeville late Saturday.

Port Townsend is the Olympic League 1A Division top seed to the West Central District playoffs. The Redhawks will play against a to-be-determined opponent at Bellermine Prep in Tacoma at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15.

Sequim 56, Coupeville 40

COUPEVILLE — The Sequim boys finished their season with three straight wins, beating Coupeville on the road 56-40 in their final game.

Sequim (1-11, 5-15) had a rough season with an eight-game losing streak, but ended their season on high note with two wins over Coupeville and a victory over North Mason.

“It as definitely a boost for our guys,” said coach Greg Glasser.

Glasser said the hope of every coach is that it hurts for the season to end. “The atmosphere in the locker room [after the Coupeville game] was that they still wanted to be in the gym and playing,” he said.

Nate Despain led Sequim with 19 points, while Devin Greenlow had 12. Despain, just a sophomore came on strong in the second half of the season with a number of double-digit scoring games down the stretch.

“We needed that extra scorer. He gained a lot of confidence the last several games,” Glasser said.

Sequim was a very young team that started four sophomores at times. The Wolves graduate Greenlow and Konnor Parrish. They bring back Despain and leading scorer Payton Glasser, Kyler Rollness, Cole Williams, Jon Stipe, Matt Willis, Keeshawn Whitney, Cameron Welcher and Riley Cowan next year.

Crescent 60, Clallam Bay 40

JOYCE — Crescent got 17 points from KC Spencer and 16 from McCabe Story in a 60-40 win over Clallam Bay.

The Bruins’ Ryan McCoy scored 24. Neil Peppard added 11 for Crescent.

Crescent coach Chris Ferrier said the Loggers’ (3-6, 7-11) seven wins this season was the most in a few years.

“The Clallam Bay kids, I cannot say enough about them. Playing with no subs takes guts and those kids have that quality. We were just able to take advantage of some fatigue and get the ball where we needed to get it,” Ferrier said.

“There aren’t enough words to describe my appreciation for my three seniors that finished with a win in their final high school game. Wyatt McNeece Neil Peppard and McCabe Story all had fantastic games in their final game. I appreciate all of their hard work and dedication and know they will be fantastic leaders in the next phase of their lives,” Ferrier said.

Crescent finished third in the North Olympic 1B League.

Girls Basketball Sequim 31, Coupeville 19

SEQUIM — The Wolves won their final regular-season game of the year, holding Coupeville to just 10 points over the final three quarters in the nonleague victory.

Sequim’s Adrienne Haggerty nearly outscored Coupeville all by herself as she tallied 18 points.

The Wolves trailed 12-8 at the half in the low-scoring game, but outscored Coupeville 17-4 in the third quarter to take control.

By winning two out of their last three Olympic League 2A Division games, Sequim ended up tying both Kingston and Bremerton for fourth place in the league at 5-7 (8-11 overall). Sequim had the best overall record in head-to-head play (the Wolves swept Kingston and split with Bremerton, while Bremerton and Kingston split with each other). The three teams played in a mini-playoff Saturday in Port Townsend to determine who would get the Olympic League 2A fourth seed.

Kingston and Bremerton played Saturday in a half-game and the winner played Sequim in another half-game. Results were not known before press deadline.

If Sequim wins the mini-tournament, the Wolves will begin postseason play against the 2A South Puget Sound League No. 6 seed at 7:45 p.m. Thursday at Woodrow Wilson High School in Tacoma. That school will be the loser of a playoff between White River and Franklin Pierce.

Port Townsend 40, Klahowya 27

SILVERDALE — The Redhawks gave up only nine second-half points in a come-from-behind 40-27 win over Klahowya to lock up second place in the Olympic League 1A Division.

Port Townsend was down 18-16 at the half in Thursday’s game, then outscored the Eagles 24-9 in the second half.. Coach Scott Wilson said the Redhawks didn’t make any major defensive changes.

“We didn’t change our zone, but we picked up the intensity of defense in the second half,” he said.

The Redhawks got 12 points from Kaitlyn Meek, 11 from Jaz Apker-Montoya and nine from Jenna Carson.

The win also assured the Redhawks (5-3, 10-7) of finishing the season with a winning record.

Port Townsend played Saturday against first-place Coupeville, but the game will not change the Redhawks’ second-place position in the standings.

The Redhawks will open the playoffs at home at 7 p.m. Saturday against the No. 3 seed out of the Niqually League, likely to be Cascade Christian.

Port Townsend 40, Klahowya 27

Klahowya 10 8 2 7— 27

Port Townsend 5 11 10 14— 40
