Boys Basketball

Crescent 61, Sequim JV 57

JOYCE — The Crescent boys scored 21 points in the fourth quarter to pull out a 61-57 win over the Sequim JV.

KC Spencer scored 16, hitting three 3-pointers in Monday’s game, including a big shot in the closing minutes. Neil Peppard also scored 15 and Eric Emery 12 for the Loggers. Wyatt McNeece scored nine points, while McCabe Story added rebounds.

Crescent coach Christ Ferrier said it was an intense, close game between two scrappy teams.

Ferrier said Spencer hit a 3-pointer with a couple minutes to give Crescent a lead, then the Loggers’ Peter Johnson knocked in two clutch free throws with less than 3 seconds to go to ice the game.

“I have to give all the credit to my kids, they played tremendous team basketball on offense and defense. We got enough stops on the defensive end to squeeze it out,” Ferrier said.

Crescent (4-6) next plays at 7 p.m. today at Neah Bay.

Crescent (61) — Spencer 16, Peppard 15, Emery 12, McNeece 9, Owens 3, Story 2.

Chief Kitsap 76, Quilcene 60

POULSBO — Quilcene got down by 20 points to Chief Kitsap and rallied to get the score to within two points, but ultimately fell 76-60.

Coach Richie French said the Rangers were pretty even with the Bears talent-wise, but that turnovers and rebounding hurt Quilcene late.

Quilcene fell behind 31-15 at the half, but rallied with 45 points in the second half, as the Rangers and Bears combined for a wild 27-27 fourth quarter. Chief Kitsap (6-2) is the No. 2-ranked 1B team in the state according to the WIAA’s RPI.

The Bears scored 98 points in a win earlier this season. Rangers’ coach Richie French said that while his team played the Bears tough and is getting better every game on offense, giving up 76 points is too much.

“I don’t care if they scored 98, they shouldn’t have scored 76 on us,” he said. French said he would like his team to keep opponents to 50 or less.

“We need to up our defense,” he said.

French said Acea Such played solid defense, keeping the Bears’ leading scorer Kynoa Sipai to only five points.

Robert Comstock had 19 rebounds and 10 points for the Rangers, while Jarod Smith had 16 points and 15 rebounds.

Quilcene (5-5, 0-3) has a Sea-Tac 1B League game at 6:30 p.m. today at Muckleshoot.

Chief Kitsap 76, Quilcene 60

Quilcene 8 7 18 27 — 60

Chief Kitsap 13 21 15 27 — 76

Quilcene (60) — Smith 16, Rogers 15, Comstock 10, Such 8, Rynolds 4, Beathard 2, Elkin 2.

Girls Basketball

Crescent 29, Sequim JV 21

JOYCE — The Crescent girls picked up their third win in a row with a 29-21 win over the Sequim JV.

“The Crescent girls played amazing defense, holding the Wolves to just two points in the first half,” said coach Kelly Serrianne.

“The Loggers continue to get better with each outing. We are so proud of their hard work and commitment to getting better,” Serrianne said.

McKenzie Brannan led the Loggers with 13 points, 12 rebounds and 6 steals. Alyssa Hutto scored 11 and added nine rebounds. Jazmine O’Neel added 9 more rebounds for Crescent.

Crescent (4-6) next plays at Neah Bay at 5 p.m. today.
