Concrete edges Coupeville in low-scoring game / Boys basketball

The Coupeville High School boys basketball team held host Concrete to only 33 points; unfortunately, the Wolves scored just 31 and fell to the Lions in a non-league game Tuesday, Dec. 20.

The loss dropped Coupeville’s season record to 1-8. Concrete picked up its first win of the season in five games.

The Wolves have another non-conference game at Orcas Island at 3 p.m. Friday, Dec. 30, before getting back into Olympic League play when Port Townsend visits at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3.

Both games will pose a challenge for the Wolves. Orcas is 4-1 this season, including a 78-38 win over Concrete. Port Townsend (2-0, 4-1) leads the league and is the only squad in the conference with a winning record. The Redhawks registered lopsided wins over Chimacum and Klahowya, teams that defeated Coupeville earlier this season.

Coupeville scored a season-high 62 points in its previous game but couldn’t get its offense rolling in the loss to Concrete.

The Wolves scored in double figures in a quarter only once, getting 11 in the fourth after collecting only 8, 5 and 7 in the first three.

They also struggled at the foul line, knocking down only two of nine tries.

Hunter Smith scored 10 points, Brian Shank 8, Gabe Wynn 7, Ethan Sparks 3, Joey Lippo 2 and Cameron Toomey-Stout 1.
