(Silverdale) -- Brett Skogstad and John Fullington combined to score 32 points Friday night as the North Mason Bulldogs beat the Sequim Wolves 41-33 at the Olympic League Tournament.

The victory gave the Bulldogs the Olympic League's number two seed to the West Central District Tournament beginning Friday when North Mason will host the number three Nisqually League entry.

The loss forces the Wolves to travel to Pierce County Tuesday at 5:15 for a "play in" matchup with Eatonville of the Nisqually League at Franklin Pierce High School.

Fife and Steilacoom will also play Tuesday night at Franklin Pierce in a seeding game at 7.

North Mason's Skogstad started on fire, hitting 3 treys and a 2-point basket in the first quarter for 11 points and Fullington had 5 in the opening period as the Bulldogs led 16-7.

Sequim's defense ramped up though, holding Skogstad to just two more field goals in the game and Fullington to three additional baskets.

Skogstad had a game-high 21 and Fullington 12.

The Wolves closed to within six at halftime, 22-16.

The Bulldogs managed to outscore the Wolves 8-7 in the third quarter and went to the final break with a 30-23 advantage.

John Textor, who finished with 12 points for Sequim, connected for a traditional 3-point play, then hit two more free throws with 4:24 to play, drawing the Wolves to within one point at 32-31.

North Mason then closed out the game on an 8-2 run, four of the points on Skogstad free throws and a key basket by Dylan Hannafious, who had 4 for the Bulldogs.

Jeremie Oliver paced Sequim with 10 points and Corbin Webb added 5.
Sequim was without senior Michael Dunning, who had an ankle sprain this week, and junior Josh McMinn, who is nursing a badly-bruised shin.

(Belfair) -- North Mason's hot shooting Bulldogs built a 20-point first-half lead Friday night and steamrolled the Sequim Wolves 63-28 in an Olympic League boys basketball game at Belfair.

North Mason and Sequim are now tied for the league's number 2 seed to district with 9-6 marks.

The teams will have a rematch next Friday night at 6 in the Klahowya Secondary School gym.

The Olympic League tournament game will decide the number 2 and 3 seeds to district.

Kingston (10-5, 13-6) clinched the league's number one 2A seed Friday night with an 81-47 romp over Klahowya.

The Bulldogs came into the Friday contest suffering from four consecutive league losses and played inspired ball in the final home game for seniors Dylan Hannafious, Jace McMinn, John Fullington and Brett Skogstad.

Skogstad singed the twine for 15 in the first half, including three triples in the first 8 minutes, finishing the contest with a game-high 22 points.

Sequim trailed by 20 with 4:27 left in the second quarter, 28-8.

John Textor scored 8 of the Wolves 13 first half points.

Sequim's shooting woes continued after intermission, going without a point until the 1:41 mark of the third quarter, when North Mason had extended its lead to 30 points -- 46-16.

Hannafious scored 6 of his 13 points in the third for the Bulldogs.

Fullington, the 6-6 center bound for WSU on a football scholarship, scored 11 points, hitting a triple from the right corner as North Mason led 49-21 going to the final period.

Sequim's 28 markers Friday were the fewest points scored in a single game by the Wolves since modern-day record keeping began in the 1975-76 season.

The previous record for scoring futility was 29, set in a 95-29 walloping by O'Dea in 1997 and a 57-29 loss to Aberdeen in 1995.

Sequim (9-6 in Olympic League play, 10-9 overall) will host Olympic Tuesday at Rick Kaps Gym in the final home game for seniors, while North Mason (9-6 in Olympic League play, 12-7 overall) visits North Kitsap.

09 10 Sequim boys hoops game 18 - Sequim 51, North Kitsap 48

Sequim boys 51, North Kitsap 48

(Poulsbo) -- The Sequim boys basketball team got some clutch free-throw shooting from senior Jeremie Oliver as the Wolves downed the North Kitsap Vikings 51-48 in Poulsbo Tuesday night.

Oliver scored Sequim's final six points, hitting both ends of three consecutive one-and-one opportunities.

The fourth quarter comeback win for Sequim elevated the Wolves into a tie with Kingston for the top 2A Olympic League seed to the district tournament.

Sequim and Kingston are both 9-5 in league play with two games remaining, after Kingston lost 59-52 Tuesday at Olympic.

The Bucs would have the tiebreaker over Sequim with two victories against the Wolves this season.

North Mason lost at Port Angeles Tuesday 61-54, dropping the Bulldogs a game behind the frontrunners at 8-6.

After a nip-and-tuck start where the Vikings led 15-12 at the first quarter break, North Kitsap pushed ahead to a nine-point advantage 22-13 with 4 minutes left in the opening half.

Sequim closed on a 7-0 run trailed by just two -- 22-20 -- with 1:45 before intermission.

Oliver set off the streak with a pair of easy baskets off Viking turnovers.

NK led 35-20 at the break and 36-31 going to the fourth quarter.

John Textor scored 12 of his game-high 17 points in the second half.

The Wolves tightened their defense and rebounding in the final stanza and took the lead 39-38 with 3:37 left on Josh McMinn's basket.

A pair of costly NK turnovers led to consecutive Sequim hoops as the Wolves pulled ahead by five with 45-40 with a minute to go.

The Vikings tried to foul their way back into the game, but the strategy was spoiled by Oliver's free throw shooting heroics.

North's Berkley Nilles banked in a 23-foot bomb from the right wing, closing to 45-43 with 40 seconds to go.

Oliver was fouled in backcourt and hit both ends of the one-and-one, making it 47-43.

Jordan Seth cut it to 47-45 with 20 seconds remaining.

The Vikings sent Oliver back to the stripe, where he hit two more for a 49-45 Sequim advantage.

NK's Austin Abrahamsen hit the last North trey with 8 seconds left, cutting it 49-48.

Nilles and Abrahamsen shared team-high honors for the Vikings with 11 points apiece.

Oliver's last pair of charity tosses was perfect -- he finished the game 9 for 10 -- making it 51-48, the final score as North's desperation shot was missed at the buzzer.

Sequim nailed 13-of-19 from the line for the game, 11 of 13 in the second half.

Tuesday night's contest was the ninth Sequim game decided by fewer than 4 points this season.

Hear the final 35 seconds of the game 


Textor finished with 7 points as the Wolves (8-5 in Olympic League play, 9-8 overall) closed to within a half-game of the 2A Olympic League leaders North Mason and Kingston with the victory.

Both the Bulldogs (8-4, 11-5) and the Buccaneers (8-4, 11-5) lost Tuesday night, with North Mason dropping a 42-29 decision to Port Townsend and Kingston losing 52-51 to arch-rival North Kitsap.

After Jeremie Oliver missed a shot in the paint in the final minute, Port Angeles took the rebound and called timeout with 33 seconds left -- and 32 remaining on the shot clock.

Playing for the final shot, the Roughriders milked the clock and Antonio Stevenson advanced towards the left side of the lane in the final 10 seconds.

Sequim's Frank Catelli and John Textor converged on Stevenson, with the ball coming loose with 5 seconds left and Textor driving to the Sequim basket.

Textor put the ball off the glass and into the hoop as the final buzzer sounded, sending the visitors into jubilation and the hosts into despair as Sequim claimed the two-point victory.

Oliver paced Sequim with 9 points, while Camporini had 6.
