Sequim beats Bremerton 34-6

Individual game highlights on links below!

September 24th, 2011 - 3:49am
(Sequim) -- The Sequim High Wolves football team improved their record to 4-0 on the 2011 campaign with a 34-6 Olympic League victory over the Bremerton Knights on Friday.
Senior quarterback Frank Catelli completed 23-of-34 passes for 292 yards and 2 touchdowns and rushed 6 times for 55 yards and another score as the Wolves improved to 2-0 in league action.
However, Catelli was ejected from the contest in the third quarter after he sent a retaliating kick towards a Bremerton player, who allegedly threw 2 punches into Catelli's face during a post-tackle scrum.
Per state rule, Catelli will be forced to sit out Sequim's game next week against the winless North Mason Bulldogs in Sequim.
Sequim Coach Erik Wiker told KONP after the game he saw the punches into Catelli's face from the sidelines that was later verified by sideline video.
Game officials apparently only observed Catelli's kick, which drew the flag and his ejection.
Running back Jack Wiker scored the first of his two rushing touchdowns less than 2 minutes into the game on a 12-yard jaunt, capping an 8-play, 46-yard drive for a 7-0 Sequim advantage.
Catelli finished another 46-yard Sequim march with a 14-yard run with 7:30 left in the opening stanza as the Wolves extended their lead to 14-0.
Another 53-second Sequim scoring drive put the Wolves up 21-0 with 33 seconds remaining in the first quarter when Catelli connected with Michael Ballard on a 22-yard TD strike.
Wiker's second scoring run from 5 yards put Sequim ahead 27-0 halfway through the second period.
The final Wolves score of the game came 21 seconds before intermission when Catelli completed his 11th touchdown pass of the season to Wiker for 14 yards and a 34-0 halftime lead.
Bremerton quarterback Mikey Lawrence, who completed 13-of-35 passes for 138 yards and rushed 24 times for 89 yards, scored the Knights lone TD with 2:32 remaining.
Lawrence was intercepted 4 times, 3 by Tyler Forshaw and once by Nick Ramirez in the final minute of the contest.
Bremerton dropped to 1-3 for the campaign, 0-2 in league play. The Knights will host North Kitsap next week.

 (Silverdale) - Sequim kicked off the 2011 Olympic League campaign with a 53-0 drubbing of the Klahowya Eagles at Silverdale Stadium.

Senior quarterback Frank Catelli threw four touchdown passes, rushing for another score as the Wolves improved to 3-0 for the first time since 2005.

Catelli completed 19-of-26 passes for 385 yards and had one interception.  He also rushed 11 times for 89 yards and a touchdown.

It took just 93 seconds for Sequim to tally the first score against the Eagles, as Christian Miles took a short Catelli pass off a drag pattern 36 yards to pay dirt, capping a 5-play, 77-yard march.

Miles caught 6 balls for 111 yards and a pair of scores.

Klahowya's attempt at chicanery on its first play from scrimmage with a double pass was thwarted by Sequim's Tyler Forshaw with an interception of running back Jacob Sheets and returned to the Eagles 38.

The teams traded turnovers before the Wolves boosted their lead to 13-0 on Forshaw's 21-yard TD
reception from Catelli at the 7:27 mark of the opening stanza.

Forshaw grabbed 5 passes for 135 yards.

Less than 2 1/2 minutes later, Wiker made his second of three visits to the Klahowya end zone on a 9-yard run, making it 19-0 with 4:49 remaining in the first quarter.

The Wolves got two short TD runs in the second period -- a 1-yard walk by Catelli behind power blocking and a 2-yard punch by Wiker -- along with a 20-yard Catelli to Wiker TD aerial that gave Sequim a 39-0 halftime bulge.

Wiker carried 8 times for 58 yards.

Klahowya managed to get to the Sequim 10 yard line early in the second half, but came up empty after a 31-yard field goal miss by Eagles freshman kicker Casey Barnes-Trask.

Sequim Coach Erik Wiker gave kudos to his defensive unit that held the Eagles to 77 total yards for the game.

"The line did really well as did the defensive backs on pass coverage, they're probably the best DB's as a core, almost ever here", Wiker praised.

"Our defense played really tough", said Wiker, who is now 10-0 in his career vs. Klahowya. "We let 'em get going a bit in the second half, but it's hard to stay focused when you're up by that much. We have to do that so the kids don't get hurt."

"One thing we have always done in this program is take advantage of the weeks that we have opponents we think we should be able to beat", Wiker said. "Our goal is to get better the week we play them, and get better for the weeks ahead that are tougher."

After Catelli's final 3-yard scoring pass to Miles with 4:52 left in the third quarter, the mercy rule was triggered with a 46-0 Sequim advantage.

The time clock ran continuously for the final 16 minutes, 52 seconds.

Late in the fourth quarter, Sequim sophomore Adam Knapman spun out of a Klahowya tackle and raced 29 yards to the house and the final score of 53-0.

The Wolves racked up 621 yards of offense, despite 13 penalties for 110 yards.  Coach Wiker talked about several illegal procedure calls on his offense.

"The wideouts weren't checking with the line judge and they were getting penalties for being off the line and then we had a few holding penalties, a lot of it was us not executing to our ability", Wiker noted.

One first half Sequim touchdown drive went 85 yards in 10 plays, despite 5 penalties for 40 yards.

Coach Wiker observed, "the positive was there was the perseverance in a negative situation."

"Our line did really well both running and passing", said Wiker. "They were a big difference in the game."

Wiker also praised the hard work of his coaching staff, noting this season's loss of Coach Matt Ashley to a small college in Kansas. "A lot of guys have stepped up and taken on the role that he has done.  We work really well together and they've done a good job with the kids this year."

The Wolves return to the Sequim-Dungeness Valley for the first of three consecutive home games, hosting the Bremerton Knights Friday.

In preparation for Bremerton next week, Wiker says the key is "about stressing the little things that kicked our butt today, we had better tackling, better kickoff coverage this week. Now any little thing that we see, we'll do it right, and have mental discipline."

In other Olympic League openers, Port Angeles outscored Bremerton 47-27, Kingston spanked Olympic 35-7 and North Kitsap blanked North Mason 45-0.
