(Belfair) -- Sequim took advantage of 7 North Mason turnovers on a rainy Friday night in Belfair, coming up with a 28-13 victory over the Bulldogs and sole possession of first place in the Nisqually Olympic League football standings.
North Mason's Tim Winslow returned the opening kickoff to the Sequim 27, where a hit by the Wolves' Issac Yamamoto knocked the pigskin loose and Jeremie Oliver recovered for Sequim.
On the game's first scrimmage play, running back Travis Decker swept over the right side for a 27-yard touchdown run.
Freshman Mitch Koonz hit the PAT for a 7-0 advantage just 14 seconds into the contest.
Late in the second quarter, Sequim's Preston McFarlen recovered Bulldog quarterback Josh Lopez's fumble at the North Mason 28.
On the fourth play of the ensuing drive, Joey Hall ran 1 yard to paydirt, increasing the Wolves lead to 14-0 after Frank Catelli's PAT with 4:57 to go until intermission.
North Mason made it interesting in the third quarter.
The Bulldogs (6-1) intercepted Sequim quarterback Drew Rickerson at the Wolves 30 in the opening minute of the second half.
Josh Lopez scored 5 plays later on a 14 yard quarterback keeper to close the gap to 14-7 after Kasey Bielec's PAT with 9:58 left in the third quarter.
Six minutes later, the Bulldogs threatened to pull even on Tevin Williams 7 yard run, but Bielec's extra point missed, leaving Sequim ahead 14-13.
Moving into the final quarter, the Wolves took control by driving 65 yards in 11 plays, capped by an 11-yard fade pass from Rickerson to John Textor.
Sequim settled the matter after another North Mason fumble with Jeremie Oliver hitting the end zone on a 30-yard run, boosting the Wolves final advantage to 28-13.
Sequim (6-1) hosts Eatonville, a 17-12 winner over Fife, next Friday for Homecoming at Sequim High School.
