A dismal second half led to a 68-27 loss for the Coupeville High School boys basketball at Friday Harbor Thursday, Dec. 20.
The Wolverines outscored the Wolves 30-6 in the second half to claim the non-conference win.
Coupeville coach Anthony Smith said, “They were way more aggressive than we were.”
He noted that cold shooting wasn’t the only problem, as turnovers again haunted his club. In reference to the mistakes, he said, “I don’t even want to go there.”
One positive, Smith said, was a more consistent half-court defense.
Friday Harbor (2-3) led 16-6, 33-21 and 48-24 at the quarters.
Ben Etzell scored a season high 11 points for the Wolves. Nick Streubel, Aaron Trumbull and Caleb Valko scored four each, and Josh Wiley and Drew Chan had two apiece.
Coupeville (0-8) hosts Orcas Island at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 22, in another nonleague contest.Contact Whidbey News Times Sports editor Jim Waller at email@example.com or 360-675-6611 ext. 5060.
