It was the perfect storm, if you wanted very few games played.

The aftereffects of snow and ice mixed with the never-ending pandemic shuffle to keep most Northwest 2B/1B League basketball teams off the court this past week.

On the boys side of things, only one of nine scheduled games was actually played, with Coupeville running La Conner off the floor.

Things were slightly more active for girls hoops squads, with an emphasis on the word slightly.

La Conner KO’d Coupeville’s girls, while Mount Vernon Christian blasted Concrete a few days later.

Then, Saturday night, La Conner broke triple-digits, shellacking Concrete in a savage 104-14 win.

Other than that, six of nine scheduled games failed to have a tip-off.

The week ahead is pretty barren, as well, at least for Coupeville, which currently only has one set of games on the schedule.

The Wolves host MVC Tuesday, Jan. 11, with the boys game a showdown for sole possession of first-place in the NWL.

After that, barring pesky Covid positives, or frogs raining down from the skies, CHS goes full-tilt, with four games in five days between Jan. 18-22.


Until then, here are where things stand through games of Jan. 8:


Northwest League boys basketball:

School League Overall
Coupeville 4-0 6-0
MV Christian 3-0 6-2
Darrington 1-1 3-3
Friday Harbor 1-2 2-4
La Conner 1-2 3-5
Orcas Island 1-2 3-4
Concrete 0-4 1-7


Northwest League girls basketball:

School League Overall
La Conner 6-0 10-0
MV Christian 4-1 8-2
Coupeville 3-2 4-3

Livin’ large in the ritzy part of town.

That’s where the Coupeville High School varsity basketball teams are right now, with both the Wolf girls and boys sitting in first place in the Northwest 2B/1B League.

The teams are a combined 4-0 in conference action, and 7-1 overall heading into the final week of action in 2021.

Coupeville travels to Concrete Tuesday, Dec. 14, then meanders to Mount Vernon Christian Dec. 17.

Wrapping up the first part of the hoops season with non-conference showdowns against South Whidbey Dec. 18, the Wolf squads have a rare split.

Coupeville’s boys will be at home, while the girls make the epic journey to Langley.

After that, both teams will practice, but not play for a bit, as the holidays toss in a break.

Games don’t return until Jan. 4, with the majority of the season’s contests playing out in 2022.


Where things stand, through games of Dec. 11:


Northwest League boys basketball:

School League Overall
Coupeville 2-0 4-0
MV Christian 2-0 4-1
Friday Harbor 1-0 2-1
La Conner 1-1 3-3
Darrington 0-1 2-3
Concrete 0-2 1-3
Orcas Island 0-2 1-3


Northwest League girls basketball:

School League Overall
Coupeville 2-0 3-1
La Conner 2-0 5-0
Friday Harbor 1-0 1-3
MV Christian 1-1 3-1
Darrington 0-1 2-3

Orcas Island 0-2 0-4

Coupeville football had an unexpected week off after injuries forced it to cancel a non-conference game.

Things are starting to drop into place.

The further we get into the fall sports season, the more the frontrunners become clear.

Defending Northwest 2B/1B League champs La Conner (volleyball), Orcas Island (boys soccer), and Mount Vernon Christian (girls soccer) are all back in the lead, while Friday Harbor (football) is rebounding nicely after losing a season to Covid.

While it doesn’t sit in first-place in any sport, Coupeville is solid, currently second-best in volleyball and football.

Originally it seemed like Wolf girls soccer was also in second, but it turns out a score was misreported for the Friday Harbor vs. La Conner game, momentarily bumping CHS down a rung.

That could change this coming week, however, as the Coupeville boosters host Friday Harbor Tuesday.

Toss in home games against La Conner Thursday and non-conference foe Sultan Saturday (that’s Senior Night), and the Wolves have a busy week — and no bus rides.

Boys soccer and football only have a single game apiece, with both teams hitting the road Friday.

The booters are off to Lopez Island, while the gridiron giants travel to La Conner — if both the Wolves and Braves football teams have enough healthy players after both teams cancelled games this past week.

Coupeville’s cross country team doesn’t compete again until the league championships Oct. 21, but volleyball will be busy, with a pair of matches.

The Wolf spikers travel to Orcas Tuesday, where they will attempt to cement their hold on second-place, before hosting Darrington Thursday.

Welcome to life on a bus (and a ferry).

Seven of the eight contests next week for Coupeville High School teams are road affairs, with just Monday’s volleyball match at home.

It’ll be a nice test for the Wolves, to see how they respond to playing outside their comfort zones.

And a good way for the school district to test the gas mileage on those aforementioned buses.

So, there’s that.

CHS volleyball gets that lone home contest Monday against South Whidbey, then travels to Friday Harbor Tuesday afternoon.

For soccer, the girls also travel to Friday Harbor Tuesday, then trek to La Conner Thursday, while the boys go to La Conner Tuesday and Grace Academy Friday night.

Wolf football heads to Friday Harbor for a first-place showdown Friday, while cross country runs at Mount Vernon Christian a day before.

One night, two titles on the line.

Tuesday marks the end of the transplanted 2021 basketball season, and both Northwest 2B/1B League titles will be decided on the floor in Mount Vernon.

First up, the La Conner girls will try and finish out an undefeated league campaign, while Mount Vernon Christian will vie for the upset.

The first time these squads faced off, the Braves bounced the Hurricanes 58-33, giving MVC its only loss of the season.

La Conner has impressive non-conference wins against 1A Kings and 2A Lynden, with its lone setback coming to 2A Burlington-Edison.

The math is simple — Tuesday’s winner is league champ.

In the boys contest, MVC will be playing for a title, while La Conner will try and fill the role of spoiler.

Hurricanes win, they top an extremely-close race partially determined by only two of seven NWL schools — Coupeville and Concrete — playing a full 12-game league schedule.

If La Conner triumphs, however, Friday Harbor comes out on top for the boys title.

With their own win Tuesday over visiting Darrington, Coupeville can finish with victories in two-thirds of its games, but it can’t win a league title.

A one-point loss in overtime to Friday Harbor denied the Wolves that fate, but a win against Concrete in their next game did clinch the program’s first winning season since 2010.
