PA 4, Sequim 3

SEQUIM — The Wolves dominated at the top of the ladders but the Riders’ depth was the key in the Olympic League match between archrivals Friday.

The two teams split for the season with Sequim winning earlier in the fall on the Port Angeles courts.

“Any time you can get a win at Sequim, you have to feel pretty good,” Port Angeles coach Brian Gundersen said.

The Riders finish the season 6-1 in league play and 10-3 overall.

Sequim won the two No. 1 matches with singles ace Byron Boots beating Hayden McCartney 6-2, 6-1.

In doubles, the Wolves’ duo of Waylon Lam and Donavan Lee beat Connor Reid and Sam Beasley 6-2, 3-6, 6-3.

Gundersen picked Kevin Herzog and Derek Schumacher as the Port Angeles players of the match after coming from behind to win 1-6, 7-5, 6-1 at No. 3 doubles.

“They were in a huge hole and found a way out,” Gundersen said. “They had lost the first set and were down 5-2 in the second set, and didn’t stop fighting.”
