(Sequim) -- The Sequim Wolves came from behind in the second half to defeat the Port Angeles Roughriders 27-14 Friday night, clinching their third consecutive Olympic League championship.

About 15-hundred fans witnessed the Friday's contest at Sequim High School.

Port Angeles got the only touchdown of the first half after capitalizing on a Sequim fumble by quarterback Cody Field at the Wolves 4-yard-line.

Two plays later, running back Dylan Brewer crashed into the end zone putting the green and white ahead 7-0 with 5:47 left in the second quarter.

Brewer had a tremendous contest, carrying the ball 38 times for 194 yards and 2 scores.

The Roughriders, hampered by the loss of their top 3 receivers to injury, used a smash-mouth "Power I" formation for the majority of the contest, passing just three times, all which were intercepted by Sequim.

Port Angeles had 258 rushing yards to Sequim's 159.

PA quarterback Keenen Walker, who suffered a broken forearm the previous week, played running back and safety for the Riders wearing a short cast, rushing for 59 yards on 10 carries.

The momentum of the game changed in the third quarter with the appearance of Sequim quarterback Jack Wiker, who missed the first half due to a coach's decision.

Wiker drove the Wolves to touchdowns on the first three drives of the second half, keeping the ball on scoring rushes of 1, 3 and 11 yards, putting Sequim ahead 19-7 with 11:38 remaining in the contest.

Wiker carried the ball 15 times for 75 yards, while connecting on 9-of-14 passes for 90 yards.

Port Angeles (6-3 overall, 4-3 in Olympic League play) didn't back down and answered with a 50-yard Brewer touchdown rumble to close within 19-14 with 7:32 left in the final quarter.

Port Angeles faces a tough road into the state playoffs with a pig-tail game Tuesday night against the Seamount League's number 3 team at a site to be announced.

The winner of the pigtail game Tuesday will meet the South Puget Sound League champion Franklin Pierce Cardinals a week from today.

Sequim (8-1, 6-1 in Olympic League play) will play Eatonville, the South Puget Sound League's number 4 entry, in a 2A subdistrict playoff game Saturday, November 5th at 7 p.m. at Poulsbo's North Kitsap Stadium.

(Poulsbo) -- The North Kitsap Vikings handed the Sequim Wolves their first league loss since 2008, 33-13 at North Kitsap Stadium Friday night.

Sequim (7-1 overall, 5-1 in Olympic League play) needs a victory over Port Angeles and a Kingston win over North Kitsap next week to retain its league championship.

North Kitsap's Connor McCorkle slayed Sequim with two long touchdown plays -- a 73-yard TD run early in the opening quarter and a 74-yard scoring reception from AJ Milyard in the second stanza.

Another Vikings' touchdown pass from Milyard to Dan Mitchell from 14 yards boosted the NK lead to 24-7 with 1:43 left in the first half.

Disaster came for Sequim when Frank Catelli's pass was intercepted by North's Jordan Hadden and returned 34 yards for a score with 42 seconds remaining before intermission, putting the Vikings ahead 30-7.

Sequim won the second half 6-3, scoring with 1:26 left in the third quarter on a 2-yard Jack Wiker run.

North Kitsap (5-3, 5-1 in Olympic League play) connected on a 22-yard Kyler Gracey field goal with 6:11 remaining for the final count of 33-13.

(Silverdale) -- The fourth-ranked Sequim High Wolves football team moved to 7-0 on the 2011 season after a 35-8 drubbing of the Olympic Trojans Thursday night.

Despite the convincing victory, an injury to starting quarterback Frank Catelli left a feeling of uneasiness for Sequim fans.

Catelli suffered a groin pull after a hit by Olympic's Harrison Fuller late in the third quarter.

The star senior's status is undetermined for next Friday's game at North Kitsap.

Sequim running back and backup QB Jack Wiker also left the game in the second half after a hit to the shin, but is expected to return next week.

The Wolves (7-0, 5-0 in Olympic League play) forged a 14-0 first half lead after a 3-yard Wiker TD run and Catelli's 4-yd TD rush.

In the third quarter, Sequim scored twice -- on a 14-yard Catelli run and a picture-book 34-yard touchdown strike from Catelli to Christian Miles.

The Wolves finished their scoring with 7:29 remaining in the fourth quarter on a 7-yard pass from Cody Field to Michael Ballard.

Olympic (2-5, 2-3 in Olympic League play) hit the scoreboard with 7 seconds left on a 21-yard pass from quarterback Rob Howard to running back Randy Grier.

11 Football Game #6 - Sequim 27, Kingston 13

Sequim rallies for thrilling 27-13 Homecoming win over Kingston

by Dan Kari
Newsradio 1450 KONP  

(Sequim) -- A ball control, smash-mouth strategy nearly paid off for the Kingston Buccaneers Friday night until Sequim rallied with two huge fourth quarter plays, leading to a thrilling 27-13 Homecoming victory.

The Kitsap County visitors held possession for 38 of the contest's 48 minutes.

"I realize (Dan) Novick is a really good coach and that's exactly what they wanted to do in sticking with the running game," Sequim coach Erik Wiker said. "Kingston totally wanted to keep the ball out of our hands for the whole game, taking 30 seconds between plays to keep us out of our rhythm, and not give us the ball."

Trailing 13-7, Kingston drove 83 yards in 14 plays, capped by quarterback Sam Byers' 1-yard keeper with 9:34 left in the fourth quarter.

Byers rushed 23 times for 92 yards and 2 scores.

Attempting the go-ahead extra point, Kingston placement holder Ben McMullen lost control of the snap and was swarmed by the Wolves, keeping the score tied at 13.

Hear the Kingston PAT attempt

The turn-of-the-tide came on the Bucs' ensuing squib kick, taken after two bounces by Sequim's Tyler Forshaw at his own 19-yard-line.

The mercurial Wolves senior took the ball up the right sideline and -- with the help of 2 critical blocks -- evaded Kingston pursuit 81 yards to pay dirt, giving Sequim a 20-13 advantage with 9:19 remaining.

Hear Tyler Forshaw's 81 yd kickoff return TD

"He (Forshaw) is a game-changer with the long run and the pick (of Byers at the end of the first half) and that's just stepping up and making the play -- we have lots of guys that fit that category," Coach Wiker noted. "I think (the kickoff return) was the key play that put them behind the 8-ball."

Emulating the strategy of former Seattle Seahawks coach Chuck Knox, the Buccaneers employed "Ground Chuck", pounding the ball into Sequim territory, reaching the Sequim 8-yard-line before a sack of Byers and a penalty left Kingston facing a 4th-and-goal from the Wolves 20-yard-line with 1:25 left in regulation.

Byers faced a heavy Sequim rush and his pass attempt fell incomplete near the goal line. 

Sequim seized the moment on the next scrimmage play as Jack Wiker took advantage of supreme blocking and raced 80 yards up the middle for a score, putting the game out of reach at 27-13.

Hear Jack Wiker's 80 yard TD run

Wiker packed the pigskin 5 times for 108 yards.

Senior quarterback Frank Catelli, who was crowned Homecoming king at halftime, returned from a one-game suspension, completing 10-of-18 passes for 120 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Catelli now leads Olympic League signal callers with 12 TD strikes on the campaign.

Kingston tailback Nick Tabanera led all rushers with 136 yards on 25 carries.

Erik Wiker credited his defensive backs for pass coverage, along with linemen Clay Charley and Jake Hudson, plus linebacker Josh McElrath for key stops during the contest.

Wiker thought the struggle with Kingston will send a message to his squad for future games.

"I think we had lackadaisical practices this week where (the players) thought they would be meeting the Kingston of old where we win by 50," Wiker mused.  "They (Kingston) played harder and we didn't come to play a league championship game."

See-saw first half

Kingston (3-3 overall, 2-2 in Olympic League play) established their clock-dominating tactics during the first drive of the contest, moving just 30 yards, but running 10 plays and burning 6 minutes and 40 seconds off the clock, before a 4th-and-4 fake punt run at the Sequim 46 by Nick Tabanera was stopped a yard short of a first down by the Wolves.

Sequim (6-0 overall, 4-0 in Olympic League play) took possession, driving 53 yards in 9 plays, as Frank Catelli connected with Nick Ramirez for an 8-yard scoring pass with 2:17 remaining in the first quarter, giving the hosts an initial 7-0 advantage after Jonathan Campbell's PAT.

Kingston responded, grinding out 76 yards in 13 plays, culminated with Byers' 1-yard keeper with 6:02 left in the first half, creating a 7-7 deadlock.

Hear Sam Byers' 1 yd TD run

The Wolves moved ahead after a 7-play, 50-yard march with the Catelli-to-Ramirez duo connecting for a score for the fourth time in two games, this time from 4 yards, giving Sequim a 13-7 lead with 4:25 remaining until intermission.

Hear Nick Ramirez' second TD catch from Frank Catelli

Kingston threatened to tie before halftime with a drive into the Sequim red zone, but Forshaw's interception of Byers in the end zone with 25 seconds remaining, thwarted the Bucs' opportunity.

Sequim visits Olympic Thursday night

Up next week, Sequim travels to Kitsap County for a Thursday night matchup against the Olympic Trojans (2-4 overall, 2-2 in Olympic League play), a 34-28 overtime winner over North Kitsap Friday.

Sequim beat Olympic 63-8 at home last season.
