Shooting touch is a delicate thing.

In the first half Friday night, the Coupeville High School JV boys basketball team had the magic touch.

After the halftime break, not so much.

Unable to hold on to an early lead on the road, the Wolves eventually fell 52-39 to host Friday Harbor.

The loss drops the JV to 1-5 in Northwest 2B/1B League play, 3-7 overall, with one game left on the schedule.

Coupeville’s young guns close their season on the road at La Conner Feb. 10, then a few of them will hope to get a call up to the varsity for that team’s playoff run.

Facing off with Friday Harbor, the Wolves were scrappy, fighting for loose balls and rebounds, and played defense with intensity.

But the rim just turned unforgiving as the night rolled on.

“They battled tough but came out on the wrong end of it,” said Coupeville coach Hunter Smith.

The Wolves jumped out to a 14-9 lead after one quarter of play, benefiting greatly from a hot start by Nick Guay.

The sweet-shooting sophomore rattled the rims for 10 points in the first eight minutes, including splashing home a pair of three-balls over outstretched fingers.

Coupeville clung to a 24-23 lead at the half, but a Friday Harbor three-ball a millisecond before the buzzer ended play made things closer than they might have been.

That miracle shot, which was set up by a questionable foul call on the Wolves on the prior play, seemed to light a fire deep inside the host team.

Friday Harbor went on a 17-8 tear in the third, claiming a lead it wouldn’t relinquish.

The Wolves were led by the one-two combo of Guay and Ryan Blouin, who each netted 12 points while combining to drain five three-balls.

Hurlee Bronec (4), Hunter Bronec (3), Landon Roberts (2), Zane Oldenstadt (2), William Davidson (2), and Mikey Robinett (2) also scored, with Jack Porter, Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim, Carson Field, and Johnny Porter rounding out the roster.

They made it rain.

Throwing down eight three-balls Saturday, the Coupeville High School JV boys basketball squad blitzed host Granite Falls 49-42.

The non-conference victory lifts the young Wolves to 3-6 on the season, with two more games on the schedule.

The JV closes with road games against Northwest 2B/1B League foes Friday Harbor (Feb. 4) and La Conner (Feb. 10).

Coupeville will enter that home stretch awash in a nice afterglow, thanks to Ryan Blouin, Nick Guay, and Zane Oldenstadt scorching the Granite nets.

The first two of that trio connected on three treys apiece, while Oldenstadt drilled the bottom out of the net twice from distance.

Ryan Blouin ponders life as a three-ball assassin.

CHS actually trailed 15-10 at the first break Saturday, then found its shooting groove.

Six different Wolves scratched their name in the scoring column during a 15-8 second quarter run, before Coupeville blew things open with a 16-6 tear in the third frame.

From there the sweet-shooting assassins coasted in for the win, the first of two claimed by Coupeville’s male hoops players on this night.

Guay topped the scoring chart with 13 points, while Oldenstadt tossed in 11 and Blouin added nine.

Mikey Robinett (6), William Davidson (5), Hunter Bronec (3), and Johnny Porter (2) also scored, with Landon Roberts, Hurlee Bronec, and Jack Porter all seeing floor time.

The rim was a relentless foe.

Despite getting plenty of strong looks at the basket Wednesday, the Coupeville High School JV boys basketball team struggled all night to get the ball to stay in the bucket.

That, combined with an opportunistic Friday Harbor defense, doomed the Wolves during a 58-28 home loss.

The defeat drops Coupeville’s JV to 1-3 in Northwest 2B/1B League action, 1-5 overall.

The Wolves came out cold in the mid-week game, and the visitors took advantage, claiming a lead they would never relinquish on the night’s very first bucket.

Down 8-0 in the early going, Coupeville got back within 12-8 right before the end of the first quarter, only to see Friday Harbor net a three-ball to end the frame with an exclamation point.

The best Wolf bucket in the early going came on a swooping layup by Johnny Porter, who snagged a crisp entry pass from Ryan Blouin and beat his man to the rim.

But Coupeville was never able to put together back-to-back buckets in the second or third quarter and saw its deficit mushroom.

Trailing 26-13 at the half, the Wolves slipped behind 38-21 heading into the fourth quarter.

Nick Guay caressed the net on a pair of three-balls, then added another one in the final period, but Friday Harbor used an aggressive defense to force frequent turnovers, frustrating Hunter Smith’s young team.

CHS hung tough, however, putting together a 7-0 run late in the fourth quarter to keep the visitors honest.

Guay finished with a team-high 13 points, including his trio of treys, while Jack Porter knocked down four points in support.

Blouin (3), Hurlee Bronec (2), Johnny Porter (2), Quinten Simpson-Pilgrim (2), and Mikey Robinett (2) also scored for the Wolves, while Carson Field, Landon Roberts, and Hunter Bronec also saw floor time.

Roberts, playing as proud mom Sherry beamed at him while working the scorer’s table, was ferocious on defense.

Even with his team trailing big late, he remained scrappy, scrambling back the length of the court to trip up a Friday Harbor ball handler and make away with the ball.

Landon Roberts was a standout on defense.
