2015 Football Game 3 - Sequim 13, Kingston 10

Sequim beats Kingston 13-10

September 19th, 2015 - 2:52am




(Kingston) -- Sequim's defense forced 3 fourth quarter turnovers as the Wolves held on to beat the Kingston Buccaneers 13-10 Friday night.
The last defensive gem came when Kane Stoddard intercepted Bucs QB Max English at the goal line on a final Hail Mary from the Sequim 40-yard line as time expired.
Sequim (3-0, 1-0 in 2A Olympic League play) led 13-3 at intermission, but the Buccaneers seized momentum after an 8-play, 58-yard drive to begin the second half, culminating with a 1-yard touchdown run by Ali Chiquiti.
The extra point closed the gap to 13-10, ending the evening's scoring with 20:57 left in a defensive donnybrook.
Kingston (0-3, 0-1 in 2A Olympic League play) held Sequim to just 12 net yards on 19 plays in the second half, after giving up 13 points and 160 yards in the first 24 minutes.
The difference in the game was Sequim's bend-but-don't break defense, allowing 150 second-half yards and a touchdown, but forcing 3 drive-killing Kingston miscues (a fumble and 2 interceptions).
In the fourth quarter, Kingston had a long drive of nearly 6 minutes from its own 1 before Noah Christiansen made his second interception of the game against English, giving the Wolves possession at their own 18 with 5:58 left.
Sequim managed a first down and moved out to the 29 before Nick Faunce punted 37 yards with no Kingston return.
On the first play of the drive, Sequim junior James Thayer made a thundering hit on Bucs running back Alex Barrett, jarring the ball loose with the Wolves recovering at the Kingston 34 with 2:47 to go.
Sequim was able to run 1:23 off the clock before turning the ball over on downs at the Kingston 33 with 1:24 remaining.
Kingston went into hurry up mode, converting a 4th-and-5 from the Sequim 47 on a 14-yard pass from English to Brett Heaps with just 10 seconds left.
On first down, English scrambled right and was knocked out of bounds by Brandon Stamper with 4 seconds left back at the Bucs 40.
On the final Hail Mary attempt, English lofted the ball high and deep to the center of the field, but Stoddard rose up out of a pack of players to make the game-ending pick.
Sequim establishes the run early
After the opening kickoff, Sequim drove 12 plays to the Kingston 34 before turning the ball over on downs on a 3 yard Gavin Velarde gain on a 4th and 5.

Senior Arnold Black was the first drive workhorse, steamrolling defenders 7 times for 35 yards.


He finished with 77 yards on 19 carries for game-high rushing honors.
Holding Kingston to just 6 yards on the Bucs opening possession, Sequim started from their own 28 and scored the first points.
Freshman quarterback Riley Cowan had 2 key completions on 7-play, 72 yard march: a 39 yarder to Noah Christiansen and a 13 yard grab by Ian Dennis.
Christiansen caught the Cowan scoring toss in the left corner of the end zone on 3rd-and-1 from the Kingston 7.
Thomas Winfield's extra point kick made it 7-0 with 3:31 left in the opening frame.
Cowan was 8-for-15 for 81 yards, a TD and an interception.
Nearly midway through the second quarter, Kingston reached the Sequim 10 before penalties stalled the drive and the Buccaneers settled for a 31-yard Field Goal by Alex Barrett with 7:31 to go before halftime, Kingston trailing 7-3.


Gavin Velarde had a 54-yard kickoff return setting the Wolves up at the Kingston 31.
But Sequim lost a scoring opportunity after a Kingston defender wrestled the ball away from Velarde on a long Cowan pass at the Kingston 5 with 4:38 left in the half.
The Bucs ran just 2 plays before Noah Christiansen broke in front a receiver, intercepting QB Max English at the 21 and was knocked out-of-bounds at the Kingston 1.
English was 15-for-27 in the passing department for 163 yards. He was intercepted 3 times, 2 in the final stanza.
Brandon Stamper took the power play the final yard for the score and Sequim was ahead 13-3 after a blocked PAT with 3:15 remaining before halftime.
Next week, Sequim will host the North Kitsap Vikings Friday, while Kingston will travel to Belfair to play the North Mason Bulldogs.

A message to Wolves fans from Dan Kari

I regret to inform you that recurring voice problems have forced us to end our Sequim sports broadcasts.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to have been your announcer for the past 8 years.

Our first broadcast for Sequim was a 35-13 football win over Chimacum on August 31, 2007 and our final gridiron contest was September 11, 2015, a 41-0 victory over Coupeville.

We brought you 296 Sequim sports contests -- 210 basketball games and 86 football games.

The audio for almost every one of those games is available for download on this site.

I'll never forget the memories.

The ecstasy -- Thomas Gallagher stopping a Burlington-Edison 2-point conversion attempt on the final play as Sequim won 34-32 at North Kitsap in 2009.

Or Jack Wiker's touchdown pass to Tyler Forshaw with 11 seconds left that beat Eatonville 40-34 in 2011.

And the agony -- A half-court shot in overtime of the State 2A basketball quarterfinals in Yakima that gave Renton a 59-56 victory over the Wolves in 2013.

I would like to thank longtime broadcast partner and friend, Coach Phil Langston, for bringing his expertise to 111 of our games.

Kudos to Sequim High School administration, coaches and staff, including Principal Shawn Langston, Athletic Director Dave Ditlefsen, Football Coach Erik Wiker and Boys Basketball Coach Greg Glasser.

Thanks to those at KONP Radio, including Todd Ortloff, Brown Maloney, Stan Comeau, Scooter Chapman and Sandy Keys, for making our broadcasts possible.

Thanks to my biggest fan, my mother, for always listening from Hoquiam.

Lastly, thanks to the Wolves Nation, as you listened online across the country over the years, as far away as Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Ohio and New York.

I wish you all the best of luck in everything you do -- Go Wolves!
