Boys basketball: Coupeville takes down Friday Harbor

It wasn't the best set up for a game, but Coupeville High School boys basketball coach Randy King will take the results.

The Wolves suffered a 25-point loss the night before, didn't get home until 11 p.m. from that trip, left at 8 the next morning and then endured a long ferry ride. That, however, didn't stop Coupeville from coming away with a 46-38 nonconference win at Friday Harbor Saturday, Dec. 11.

King said, "I thought we played really well at times and played well all of the time."

Coupeville's 6-6 Ben Hayes had a five-inch height advantage over the tallest Wolverine and lit Friday Harbor up for 10 first-quarter points as the Wolves eased to a 14-13 lead.

Coupeville pushed the lead to 29-20 at the break and "controlled the game the rest of the way," King said.

Hayes missed just three shots and finished with 16 points. He received offensive help from Ian Smith with 11 and Tyler King with 10. Nevin Miranda added seven and Dalton Engle two.

Engle handled the dirty work and picked up 10 rebounds and seven assists.

Coupeville (0-1, 1-2) plays its only home game out of the first seven contests Tuesday, Dec. 14, at 7 p.m. against Cedarcrest (1-0, 3-1).
