Crescent 60, Clallam Bay 25

JOYCE — The Loggers shook off a nearly month-long break and were led by Connor Ferro-May’s 26 points in a win over the Bruins

“We had a bit of a slow start after a long break, we hadn’t played since Dec. 21,” Crescent coach Chris Ferrier said.

“Our defensive effort wasn’t really up to standard in the first half, but we were able to sustain some scoring punch and worked out to a lead.”

The Loggers bigs went to work inside in the second and third quarters.

“Our inside guys Conner Ferro-May and Brayden Emery were able to catch the ball in traffic and finish in the paint in the middle quarters,” Ferrier said.

Emery added 15 points.

“Our guards played unselfishly and shared the ball. Weston Hart, our leading scorer in particular, had seven assists,” Ferrier said. “The challenge was issued to ramp up at the defensive end of the floor and the guys responded in the second half. We were able to trigger our offense with much better defense. And then once we got to the running clock we were able to get our younger kids a whole fourth quarter of experience.

“Credit to Clallam Bay — they sure play hard,” Ferrier said.

Crescent (1-0, 6-2) is next scheduled to play at Clallam Bay on Friday.

Clallam Bay (0-2) is scheduled to play at Neah Bay on Tuesday.

Sequim splits pair

SEQUIM — The Wolves split a pair of contests Thursday and Friday, dropping Bainbridge 46-31 in an Olympic League contest, before traveling to play at Mount Vernon in a 48-45 nonleague loss to the Bulldogs.

On the road at 3A Mount Vernon’s old-school gym, Sequim struggled to find the basket, shooting a collective 19 of 63 (30 percent) from the floor.

“We played very hard but could not buy a basket,” Wolves coach Joclin Julmist said. “It was a tough loss, Mount Vernon played a great game and they executed well in the last three minutes.”

Jelissa Julmist led Sequim with 17 points, adding six rebounds and six steals.

Jolene Vaara posted her third double-double of the week, scoring 14 points with 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals. “She played well,” Julmist said.

Hannah Bates had seven points and seven steals. “She had a good game on the defensive side and did a good job running the show [on offense].”

The Wolves (8-0, 9-2) visit Class 3A Bellevue for a nonleague game at 3 p.m. Monday.

Against Bainbridge, Sequim weathered early foul trouble to Jelissa Julmist and Taryn Johnson.

“[We] had to sit them early in the game,” coach Joclin Julmist said. “Bainbridge played hard, but our girls weathered their first-half attack.”

Julmist said his squad played great on defense once again.

“Hannah Bates was a ball hound, she was everywhere,” Julmist said. “Jolene [Vaara] had another double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds.”

Jelissa Julmist led the way with 17 points and also had five rebounds.

“Jelissa had some nice moves in limited playing time,” Julmist said.

“Addie Smith was solid on both sides of the court and chipped in seven points.”

Forks 67, North Beach 24

FORKS — Aggressive defense by the Spartans led to a high-scoring offensive output in a blowout win over the Hyaks.

“It all really started on the defensive end,” Forks coach David Hurn said. “We held them to no field goals in the first half, all four of their points were free throws. We stepped things up in our 1-3-1 zone and then switched to our 2-3 zone and were aggressive and got in the passing lanes.

We have a lot of aggressive athletes, we need to run and we came out firing, which I appreciate.”

Keira Johnson led the way with 24 points, all of them in the first half.

Kadie Wood added 22 points for Forks and Janessa Ramos had nine assists.

“She had a ton of assists and was making some great passes and setting up her teammates,” Hurn said of Ramos.

The Spartans (4-1, 5-3) are scheduled to host Chief Leschi at 3 p.m. Monday.
