4th-quarter woes sink Wolves | Girls basketball

The host Friday Harbor girls basketball team claimed its first win of the season by blanking sluggish Coupeville in the fourth quarter on the way to a 34-23 nonleague victory Thursday, Dec. 20.

The game was close until the fourth period as the Wolverines (1-5) led 13-12, 18-15 and 24-23 at the quarters.

Coupeville coach David King said, “In the fourth we came out flat at both ends of the court and didn’t score a point.”

He added, “Defense wasn’t there like it was our first six games. And offensively we slowed things down and played passive basketball.”

Bessie Walstad and Hailey Hammer led the Wolves with seven points each. Makana Stone scored four, Lauren Escalle three and Jai’Lysa Hoskins two.

Coupeville (3-5) entertains Orcas Island in a nonleague game at 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 20.
