Knights oust Wolves from district tournament / Girls basketball

The Coupeville High School girls basketball team’s season came to an end Thursday, Feb. 7, with a 48-11 loss at King’s in a district tournament elimination game.

The game was played a day earlier than scheduled because of the predicted snow storm expected to hit Friday.

The outcome was not a surprise. The first-place Knights defeated the Wolves 50-17 and 59-11 earlier this season.

Coupeville defeated Sultan the night before to earn the right to challenge King’s, but that game took its toll.

“A tough game after the great win last night,” Coupeville coach David King said. “We came out and gave everything we had. That said, (the Sultan) game took a lot out of us energy wise.”

King’s strong defense prevented Coupeville from getting to the rim. The Wolves were able to get good looks from outside, but their shots wouldn’t drop.

Coupeville was just 3-for-27 from the field, 11 percent.

Only three Wolves scored. Ema Smith and Hannah Davidson each tallied 5 points and Chelsea Prescott sank a free throw. Davidson, who “played tough in the post,” according to King, added eight rebounds.

Eight Knights scored, led by Jada Wynn with 12 points.

King’s led 13-3, 28-6, 39-6 after the first three quarters.

“Overall a very good season,” King said. “The team never backed down and gave everything they had every time they stepped on the court.”

The young Wolves, who had only three seniors — Smith, Lindsey Roberts and Nicole Laxton — finished the season with a 9-10 record.

King’s (17-5) qualified for the bi-district tournament with the win.
