SPORTS: Sequim boys basketball upsets Bremerton 71-70; other prep reports

SEQUIM — John Textor sank two free throws with five seconds left to lift the Sequim boys basketball team to a 71-70 upset of Olympic League-leading Bremerton on Tuesday night.

Textor and Corbin Webb combined for 36 points to propel Sequim (5-2 in league, 5-5 overall) over the Knights (6-1, 6-3), who were previously undefeated in league.

“It was four quarters of fun and excitement,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said about the game.

Textor scored a team-high 19 points while Webb was right behind with 17 for the Wolves’ well-balanced scoring attack.

“This is the first time this year anyone on our team has scored more than 15 points,” Glasser said.

Josh McMinn scored nine points while Clancy Catelli and Jeremie Oliver scored eight each.

Bremerton’s standout scorer Jarell Flora scorched the nets for 27 points, but it wasn’t enough.

The Knights were up by three with 30 seconds left but Michael Dunning sank a 3-pointer to tie it up.

Terrance McGee shot a free throw to give the Knights a one-point lead before Textor settled it with his own two free throws with five seconds left.

The Wolves next play at Olympic, which now has the services of standout guard Larry Dixon, on Friday night.
