The Warriors beat White River 64-50 in the other Saturday semifinal.
Sumner (16-9) scored the first 4 points of the contest, in similar fashion to quick starts in two district victories against Bremerton and Renton.
The Wolves tied the game three times before forging ahead for good 12-10 on Brocklesby's layup with 12 seconds left in the opening frame.
Brocklesby, who shared game-high scoring honors with Sumner's Keenan Jackson with 21, scored 9 in the second period, including several baskets on the fast break.
The Wolves went to the locker room up 29-20 after leading by as many as 11.
Sequim was up 43-33 at the third quarter break.
Although Sumner closed to within 5 or 6 points on several occasions in the second half, the Wolves were able to answer with enough key baskets and free throws to hang on for the victory.

He had 4 of his 7 assists in the opening half and moved into second place on the Sequim all-time list behind Ryan Kaps.
