Wolves edge Kingston Sequim earn league win as many players chip in BY LEE HORTON PENINSULA DAILY NEWS

Sequim’s Tim Guan, left, charges into Hans Shippers of Kingston and draws an offensive foul during the Wolves’ Olympic League victory Monday night.
SEQUIM — Sequim needed a full team effort to beat Kingston 53-47 on Monday night. The Wolves had enough players contribute that they were able to overcome the illness a few others were dealing with. “The word collective is a good way to describe that win,” Sequim coach Greg Glasser said. In his first start, senior Andrew Shimer scored 15 points, including a pair of 3-pointers, and defensively helped slow Kingston’s Hans Shippers in the second half. Shippers finished with 19 points for the Buccaneers, but only three came in the second half. Shimer’s good play didn’t necessarily surprise Glasser, but the outside shooting was unexpected. “He’s always working hard for us. He understands the game real well,” Glasser said. “I thought he knew his limitations, but tonight he really tested the boundaries a little bit and stepped outside, but it worked out for us tonight.”
Tim Guan finished with seven points, including four of the game’s most important. With Sequim trailing by a point with under three minutes to play, Guan scored consecutive baskets to give the Wolves a 50-47 lead that they wouldn’t relinquish. Sequim also had important contributions from leading scorers Gabe Carter and Jayson Brocklesby. During a crucial stretch in the second quarter, the two seniors combined for a 9-2 run that ended a long scoring drought and flipped a six-point deficit into a one-point lead. Carter and Brocklesby also played big roles in the Wolves’ strong finish to the third quarter. Sequim was down 37-32 with less than two minutes remaining in the period before Carter scored the Wolves’ next eight points — two 3-pointers that sandwiched a layup off a steal by Anthony Pinza — to tie the game at 40. With one second remaining in the quarter, Brocklesby scored and was fouled. TURN

PORT TOWNSEND — Port Townsend notched its second straight win with a 53-38 rout of North Mason on Monday night. The Redskins’ season was off to a rough start after losing big in their first three games to Sequim, Kingston and Olympic. But Port Townsend finally earned its first win on Saturday against Crosspoint Academy, and now is on a winning streak after Monday’s win. “I’m really proud of them because they rebounded [from losses],” Redskins coach Tom Webster said of his team. “They played excellent against Crosspoint, and then followed up with this game. “Now we’re trying to build on these wins. The key to winning seasons is getting consecutive wins.” Port Townsend (1-3, 2-3) put in an all-around effort to beat the Bulldogs. The Redskins’ defense held North Mason to 21 points in the first three quarters, which built
