Prep boys basketball: Coupeville beaten in overtime on last-second 3-point basket

OAK HARBOR — Sedro-Woolley’s Jake Howland picked a great time to hit his first 3-pointer of the night.

Howland, who finished with five points, nailed a 3-pointer as time expired in overtime and Sedro-Woolley survived to take a 73-70 nonconference victory over a short-handed Coupeville squad Friday night at Oak Harbor High School.

“We lost our big guy to a sprained ankle in the third quarter,” Coupeville head coach Randy King said of sophmore post Hunter Hammer. “It hurt us significantly, our presence inside.”

It was the first loss of the season for Coupeville (3-1 overall), which also lost starting point guard Zepher Loesch to a broken hand last week.

Coupeville, which took an early 20-15 lead after the first quarter, received 22 points and 10 rebounds from senior forward Cody Peters and 17 points and four steals from junior guard Jason Bagby.

Sedro-Woolley forced 10 turnovers in the first half to stay within striking distance.

“They attacked,” King said of the pressure Sedro-Woolley applied to his guards.

Taylor Pedroza scored 22 points to lead Sedro-Woolley and David Janicki added 16 points. Sedro-Woolley (1-1) outscored Coupeville 14-11 in the fourth quarter to force overtime.
