Corbin Webb led Sequim, scoring 12 of his 16 points in the second half.

Ward dropped in 13 of his markers in the second half, connecting on 8 of 9 free throws in the contest.
Phair hit a pair of treys in the third period that helped the Roughriders extend their lead to 34-28 going to the final period.
Sequim closed to within a point at 36-35 on Evan Hill's spectacular driving layup early in the fourth quarter.
Justin Antioquia, who finished with 10 points for PA, hit a triple that put the Riders up 39-35.
Sequim closed to within 41-38 on a steal and high flying layup by Jayson Brocklesby, but the Wolves got no closer.

Port Angeles (15-5 overall and 12-4 in Olympic League) converted 14 of 20 from the charity stripe in the last stanza, pulling away for the victory that clinched the OL's second 2A seed to the subdistrict tourney beginning Thursday.
The Roughriders will host a subdistrict contest against the Franklin Pierce Cardinals Thursday night at 7 in the Rider Gym.
Sequim's loss, combined with an Olympic victory over Klahowya 66-60 Tuesday, dropped the Wolves into the OL's fourth 2A seed into the subdistrict tournament.
