Coupeville moves on in 1A playoffs

COUPEVILLE — It was time to do something.

After Friday Harbor drove 80 yards to a score on its first drive, Coupeville head coach Ron Bagby realized that his defensive game plan needed to be adjusted. From that point on, Friday Harbor’s offense added only 63 yards for a total of 143, compared to the Wolves’ 269 as Coupeville won a 1A District 1 playoff game 13-12 Tuesday.

Friday Harbor held a 12-0 lead until the fourth quarter.

“We just couldn’t get the ball in the end zone,” Bagby said.

Kyle Wilcox turned the game around for the Wolves with four minutes to go with an interception that led to the home team’s first touchdown.

With 1:20 remaining in the game, quarterback James Smith (15 of 27 for 140 passing yards) threw a 14-yard pass to Steven McDonald for the game-winning score.

Coupeville plays Orting at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Oak Harbor Memorial Stadium in a winner to state bi-district playoff.
