Orcas Island runs by Wolves / Boys basketball

Although it had one of its best offensive nights of the season, the Coupeville High School boys basketball team couldn’t keep up with host Orcas Island, falling to the Vikings 80-50 Friday, Dec. 30.

Orcas Island continued its strong season, winning its fifth game in six tries. The Vikings scored at least 18 points in each quarter to roll by the Wolves.

Coupeville’s Hunter Smith scored 9 points in the first quarter, but that was matched by Orcas Island’s Vanya Bullock, who received plenty of support as the Vikings zipped to a 25-13 lead.

The margin grew to 43-24 at halftime and 61-39 after three quarters.

The Wolves suited up only seven players and four scored.

Ethan Spark led the way with 15 points, including getting a trio of three-pointers and scoring 5 points in each of the final three quarters.

Gabe Wynn, who had 8 points in the third period, finished with 14 and Smith had 12. Brian Shank added 9.

Bullock tallied 20 and Cyrus Amour 19 for the Vikings.

The Wolves (1-2, 1-9) return to Olympic League play at 5 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 3, when first-place Port Townsend visits. The Redhawks (2-0, 5-2) are the only team in the conference with a winning record.
