PT wins, knocks Wolves out of playoff contention / Boys basketball

The Port Townsend High School boys basketball team used a huge first quarter to not only beat visiting Coupeville 64-41 Friday, Jan. 26, but to secure a playoff berth and eliminate the Wolves for postseason contention.

The victory enabled Port Townsend to win the three-game season series 2-1 and hold the tie-breaker over Coupeville.

Had Coupeville won, it would have moved into a tie with the Redhawks for second place and own the tie-breaker.

With only two conference games remaining, the best Coupeville (3-4, 5-12) can do now is tie Port Townsend (5-2, 9-8).

Klahowya (6-1, 10-8) is in first place; Chimacum (0-7, 0-11) is in fourth.

The Wolves go to Sequim (6-5, 9-9) for a non-league game at 5:15 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 30.

Coupeville hosts Klahowya in the final home game at 5:15 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 1, and travels to Chimacum for the season finale at 6 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 3.

Port Townsend 64, Coupeville 41

The Redhawks received 10 points from Noa Montoya and 8 from Kaiden Parcher and raced to a 26-10 first-quarter lead.

Hunter Smith hit two three-pointers and scored 8 of Coupeville’s 10 first-period points.

Port Townsend continued to pull away, leading 37-19 at half time and 50-24 after three quarters.

Smith guided the Wolves with 15 points, followed by Joey Lippo with 7, Mason Grove with 6, Ethan Spark with 4, Hunter Downes with 4, Jared Brown with 3 and Kyle Rockwell with 2.
