3rd quarter blitz sinks Coupeville / Girls basketball

A nightmarish third quarter doomed the Coupeville High School girls basketball team in a 50-24 loss at Sequim Monday, Dec. 3.

Sequim outscored Coupeville 21-0 in the third period; it outscored the Wolves by only 5 points in the other three quarters combined.

Sequim (2-0) took control early, going up 13-5 in the first quarter. It built the lead to 15 in the second period before a late Coupeville spurt trimmed the lead to 10, 25-15, at halftime.

What momentum Coupeville collected with the late charge disappeared quickly in the third quarter as Sequim ran away with the game.

“Coming out for the third we didn’t get it done defensively,” Coupeville coach David King said. “They had three quick and easy open looks at the basket for scores. From then on it was an all out blitz for Sequim.”

Coupeville outscored Sequim 9-4 in the final period.

“It shows we have fight despite the score,” King said.

Coupeville hurt itself by not taking advantage of Sequim’s physical play, hitting only five of 20 free throws.

Lindsey Roberts scored 10 points for Coupeville. Ema Smith had 7, Avalon Renninger 4, Tia Wurzrainer 2 and Chelsea Prescott 1.

Roberts also had nine rebounds, Hannah Davidson seven and Smith six.

Hope Glasser topped Sequim with 12 points.

Coupeville (0-3) entertains Friday Harbor (1-2) at 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5.
