Wolves top Orcas Island, collect 1st win / Boys basketball

Coupeville’s one-two punch carried a bigger wallop than Orcas Island’s, and the Wolves’ boys basketball team clipped the visiting Vikings 77-58 Saturday, Dec. 7.

Coupeville’s Hawthorne Wolfe pumped in 33 points and Koa Davison 15 to offset Diego Lago’s 18 and 17 from Max Clark-Mattila as the Wolves won their first game of the season.

Next up for Coupeville (1-2) is a trip to Friday Harbor (0-2) at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 11.

Wolfe scored 6 points as Coupeville scooted to a 15-6 first-quarter lead.

Each team tallied 21 points in the second period — Wolfe had 8 and Sean Toomey-Stout 6 for the Wolves and Clark-Mattila 11 for the Vikings — and Coupeville led 36-27 at the break.

Wolfe, coming of a 34-point game earlier in the week, exploded for 18 points in the third quarter and the Wolves pushed their advantage to 62-46 going into the final period.

Davison doused any Viking hopes of a comeback by scoring 8 points for Coupeville in the fourth quarter.

Backing the scoring efforts of Wolfe and Davison for Coupeville were Toomey-Stout with 12, Mason Grove with 9, Jered Brown with 6 and Ulrik Wells with 2.
