(Washougal) -- A last minute, come-from-behind victory for the Sequim Wolves Saturday night made the four-and-a-half hour bus ride home from Washougal a lot more comfortable.
John Textor scored a pair of hoops in the final minute and a potential game-tying Washougal 3-ball missed at the klaxon, as the Wolves prevailed in the non-league affair 51-48.
Sequim (7-5 in Olympic League play and 8-8 overall) led 19-14 at the first quarter, energized by 2 triples from Corbin Webb and another 3 by Michael Dunning.
However, the Wolves had second quarter woes as they did the previous night in a 60-57 league loss to Kingston.
The Panthers of the 2A Greater St. Helens League had a 13-point run over a period of 5 minutes, 30 seconds, starting with a half-court heave by Brian Arceneaux that beat the first quarter buzzer and ended with Washougal leading 24-19 with 2:30 left in the first half.
The Panthers cashed in on all 10 of their charity stripe attempts in the second period, finishing the contest 14 of 14.
Meantime, Sequim hit just 2 of their 5 free throw attempts for the game.
Washougal led 26-25 at halftime.
The contest became a nip-and-tuck affair with four lead changes and a tie in third quarter, as brothers Frank and Clancy Catelli hit two baskets apiece for Sequim.
The Panthers kept the pace with 2 treys from T.C. White and another by Jeff Corona.
Washougal led 39-35 going to the final stanza.
After a tie at 33, the Panthers converted an 11-5 run and boosted their lead to 44-38 with five minutes to go.
Textor hit a two and Dunning a three-ball as the Wolves closed to 44-43 with 4:01 left.
The teams traded baskets for the next 2:30 with a Jeremie Oliver hoop cutting the deficit to 48-47 with 1:30 to play.
Textor scored on a 15-footer with 35 seconds left, putting Sequim ahead 49-48.
After a Jeff Corona miss for the Panthers with 23 seconds in regulation, Sequim had a sideline inbounds play in backcourt.
Frank Catelli zipped a bomb pass to a wide open Textor for a layup with 16 seconds left.
After a Washougal timeout, the hosts worked the ball for a Patrick McCarthy trey that glanced off iron at the final buzzer.
Textor was the game-high scorer with 16 and Clancy Catelli added 10 points for Sequim.
The Panthers got nine points apiece from T.C. White, Jeremy Ewing and McCarthy.
Sequim will visit Port Angeles for an Olympic League girls and boys doubleheader Tuesday.
