Duo leads Sequim over Coupeville / Boys basketball

The one-two punch of Payton Glasser and Nate Despain led Sequim to a 65-41 non-league win over visiting Coupeville Tuesday, Jan. 30.

Glasser scored 22 points and Despain 17 as Sequim (10-9) beat Coupeville for the second time this season.

Coupeville (3-4, 5-13) finishes its season with two conference games. First, league-leading Klahowya (6-1, 10-8) visits for Senior Night at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, then the Wolves head to Chimacum (0-8, 0-12) for the season finale at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3.

Glasser scored 8 points and Despain 7 in the first quarter, and Sequim zipped to a 17-5 lead.

Coupeville’s offense perked up in the second period, scoring 13 points behind 7 by Hunter Smith, but couldn’t cut into the Sequim lead and trailed 32-18 at halftime.

Coupeville scored only 6 points, all from Smith, in the third quarter as Sequim increased its advantage to 45-24 going into the fourth.

The final frame was the best offensive quarter for Coupeville. Cameron Toomey-Stout drilled two three-pointers and four other Wolves scored, but Sequim also had its biggest period, knocking down 20 points.

Smith finished with 19 points for Coupeville, and Toomey-Stout added a season high 11.

Ethan Spark and Joey Lippo each scored 4 points, and Hunter Downes had 3.

“Sequim is big with some very good shooters, and they moved the ball really well,” Coupeville coach Brad Sherman said. “(They are a) playoff bound 2A school and they look like it.

“Our boys played hard; I was happy with the effort.”

Coupeville lost the JV game 65-23; Mason Grove led Coupeville with 11 points.
