Coupeville closes out the season by clubbing Chimacum / Boys basketball

Taking some of the sting out of not qualifying for the playoffs, the Coupeville High School boys basketball team finished its season with two “feel good” wins.

The Wolves knocked off then first place Klahowya Thursday and wrapped up the season with a 60-31 romp at Chimacum Saturday, Feb. 3.

Coupeville ended up 5-4 in Olympic League play, good for third place, and 7-13 overall in coach Brad Sherman first year at the helm.

Port Townsend (7-2, 11-8) defeated Klahowya (6-3, 10-10) Saturday to take the conference title.

Coupeville 60, Chimacum 31

Sometimes winless teams use the motivation of their final opportunity of the year to rally for a victory.

The Wolves never gave the Cowboys a chance to build any hopes of an upset, smacking Chimacum right out of the gate.

Hunter Smith and Cameron Toomey-Stout each scored 7 points and Coupeville sprinted to a 24-2 first-quarter lead.

The Wolves continued the onslaught in the second period. Ethan Spark, Toomey-Stout, Dane Lucero and Gavin Knoblich all drilled three-pointers to help Coupeville go into the locker room up 44-9.

The lead was 56-21 heading into the fourth quarter.

Smith finished the game with 17 points and his career with 847, which is 12th on the school’s all-time scoring list.

Spark scored 13 points, Toomey-Stout 10, Lucero 6, Hunter Downes 4, Mason Grove 3, Knoblich 3, Kyle Rockwell 2 and Ulrik Wells 2. James Vidoni also played, making his varsity debut.

The Wolves drained eight three-balls in the game.

Bradley Slagle led the Cowboys with 7 points.

The Coupeville junior varsity also won easily, 60-23. Grove and Sage Downes each scored 12 points and the Wolves finished the year 5-14.
