For eight minutes they were unstoppable.

Unfortunately, high school basketball games are 32 minutes long, and the Coupeville JV boys cooled off a bit after a torrid start Thursday and got caught from behind.

Up 13-2 at the first break, the Wolves eventually fell 44-38 in a hard-fought clash at La Conner.

The loss, coming in the JV season finale, drops Coupeville’s young guns to 1-6 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 3-8 overall.

In the opening moments it looked like the Wolves couldn’t be stopped.

CHS gunner Ryan Blouin knocked down back-to-back three-balls to open the game, while La Conner didn’t even get a shot up until the 5:42 mark of the first quarter.

Add Hunter Bronec driving and dishing to Zane Oldenstadt for a layup, another Blouin trey, and two free throws from Hurlee Bronec and the Wolves were sizzlin’.

And then it all went away for a bit.

La Conner finally found its rhythm, opening the second quarter with a 9-0 run that set the Wolves back on their heels.

Coupeville stopped the bleeding for a bit thanks to a putback from William Davidson and Blouin’s fourth three-ball of the half, but the Braves kept chipping away.

A turnaround jumper from La Conner gave the host team its first lead of the game, at 19-18 heading into the halftime break, though CHS answered on the first play of the second half.

Nick Guay slashed to the hoop for a bucket and free throw after getting hacked in the head on the play, and the Wolves had a short-lived 21-19 advantage.

Short-lived because La Conner rained down the next 11 points, effectively taking control of the game.

The Wolves continued to scrap, however, carving the deficit back to 33-31 midway through the fourth quarter.

Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim drained a short jumper, on a play set up by Davidson yanking a rebound free, and that capped a 6-0 Wolf surge.

La Conner had an answer, however, driving a stake through Coupeville’s heart with a long three-ball, before closing out the win at the free-throw line.

Afterwards, Wolf coach Hunter Smith was philosophical about the defeat.

“Would’ve liked to come away with the win, but definitely some good learning moments for our boys today,” he said.

Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim and Bronec give a rival player few options.

Blouin paced Coupeville with 13 points, while Davidson banked in a season-high eight and Hunter Bronec popped for six.

Guay (5), Simpson-Pilgrim (2), Oldenstadt (2), and Hurlee Bronec (2) also scored, with Mikey Robinett, Jack Porter, Landon Roberts, and Johnny Porter seeing floor time.

Robinett was a force on the defensive end for the Wolves, sweeping down rebounds and forcing turnovers.


Final season scoring stats:

Nick Guay – 79
Ryan Blouin – 74
Hunter Bronec – 74
Zane Oldenstadt – 38
Mikey Robinett – 30
Hurlee Bronec – 27
Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim – 24
William Davidson – 18
Jack Porter – 15
Johnny Porter – 8
Landon Roberts – 8

The Wolf JV gets back at it this weekend.

Not every night goes your way.

Frustrated by an unforgiving rim Thursday the Coupeville High School JV boys basketball squad fell 50-23 at Mount Vernon Christian.

The loss drops the young Wolves to 1-4 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 2-6 overall.

There are three games left on the schedule, however, with all of them on the road, giving Hunter Smith’s squad a chance to bounce back and exit on a high note.

Thursday night the Wolves found themselves in a hole early, and were never able to dig all the way back out.

Trailing 13-6 at the first break, Coupeville slipped behind 24-12 by halftime and 41-15 heading into the final frame.

Once there, the Wolves put together their best charge, playing MVC virtually straight up with four players rattling home points.

Freshman Hunter Bronec paced Coupeville, rippling the nets on a trio of three-balls en route to a team-high 10 points.

Zane Oldenstadt (5), Nick Guay (4), Landon Roberts (2), and Jack Porter (2) joined him in the scoring column, with Guay also hitting a trey.

Hurlee Bronec, Mikey Robinett, Ryan Blouin, William Davidson, and Quinten-Simpson Pilgrim all saw floor time as well.

Coupeville returns to action this Saturday with a non-conference rumble at Granite Falls.

They saved the best for last.

Roaring back from an 18-point deficit Saturday, the Coupeville High School JV boys basketball team pulled off one of the more thrilling wins of the season.

Scoring more points in the fourth quarter than they did in the first three frames combined, the Wolves scorched host South Whidbey 49-43, leaving Falcon Nation staggered, dazed, and bereft.

Now 2-5 on the season after the non-conference victory, Coupeville returns to Northwest 2B/1B League play for its final stretch of games.

The Wolves will be riding on a high when they do so, having used a 25-7 run across the final eight minutes to derail the Falcons.

The comeback was even more impressive than that, however, as CHS trailed 36-18 with 2:30 to play in the third quarter.

That was when Hunter Smith’s squad found some deeply buried magic, scoring six straight points to end the third, before unleashing hardcourt Hell in the fourth.

Six different Wolves scored during the final frame, with Hunter Bronec banging away for seven points.

He was joined by twin brother Hurlee, the other twins – Jack and Johnny Porter, Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim, and Ryan Blouin, in making the net jump.

Hurlee Bronec was a force on both ends of the floor.

The furious finale was necessary largely because of a cold stretch in the middle of the game.

Trailing just 11-10 at the first break, the Wolves came out on the wrong end of a 14-4 run headed into halftime, then another 11-4 surge to begin the third.

But Coupeville stayed strong, and a big part of its success was its ability to get to the free throw line, and then convert once it was there.

The Wolves netted 21 free throws, while South Whidbey could only slip two charity shots through the net.

Hurlee Bronec led CHS with a season-high 15 points, while Hunter Bronec (11) and Simpson-Pilgrim (10) also cracked double digits.

Blouin caressed the nets for six, with Jack Porter (5), and Johnny Porter (2) also scoring, while Carson Field and Landon Roberts scrambled on defense.

Bryley Gilbert leads the charge.

Every point counts.
