(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.
Sequim (33) -- Kenny Meier 1, Corbin Webb 5, Nick Camporini, John Textor 12, Clancy Catelli 3, Jeremie Oliver 10, Frank Catelli 2.
North Mason (41) -- Brett Skogstad 21, A.J. Barker, Kris Bishop, Austin Casteel, Dylan Hannafious 4, Jace McMinn, Garrett Burley 4, John Fullington 12.
