September 29th, 2012 - 1:00am
(Silverdale) - Sequim squandered three chances for a potential game-winning touchdown in the final quarter
as the Olympic Trojans hung on for a 13-7 victory Friday night at Silverdale Stadium.
The hometown team led 13-0 at intermission after intercepting Sequim quarterbacks 4 times in the first 24
Olympic's Brian Tyson received a 31-yard jump ball from quarterback Zack Thornton for a 6-0 Trojans lead
with 7:30 left in the opening quarter.
Tyson had the Trojans' only 2 receptions of the game for 40 yards.
An interception of Sequim backup Nick Faunce set up Olympic's second TD drive with the 8-play, 38-yard
march capped by a 3-yard Makiah McInnis run with 4:50 remaining until halftime.
McInnis carried the ball 12 times for 32 yards.
After intermission, Sequim's defense tightened up, holding Olympic to just 53 second half yards.
A blocked Olympic punt gave Sequim possession at the Wolves 40 with 1:49 left in the third period.
Sequim drove 60 yards in 5 plays, finishing on a 28-yard scoring strike from Jack Wiker to Christian Miles,
closing the gap to 13-7 with 11:53 remaining.
Miles caught 3 passes for 59 yards.
Moments later, Miles intercepted Thornton and returned it 33 yards to the Olympic 20, where a
10-yard clipping penalty left Sequim knocking at the door on the Trojans 10.
However, the Wolves came up empty after Lopaka Yasumura's catch of a screen pass gained just 2 yards on
4th-and-goal from the Olympic 9.
Sequim got a final chance for victory starting at its own 34 with 2:18 to go.
Wiker drove the Wolves into Olympic territory, hitting Miles for 16 yards, Jon Donahue twice for 15 yards
and another 13-yarder to Yasumura.
Yasumura had 6 catches for 45 yards and rushed 6 times for 19 yards.
With 1:11 remaining, Sequim was flagged 15 yards for illegal batting when Wiker attempted to tip a fumbled
ball to lineman Andrew Shimer.
Wiker's final two passes from the Trojans 36 fell incomplete and Olympic QB Thornton took two
kneel-downs to run out the clock.
Wiker completed 15 of 30 passes for 159 yards and 1 touchdown, but was intercepted 3 times.
Sequim outgained Olympic 221-156.
Olympic improved to 2-3 overall and 2-1 in Olympic League play, while Sequim is still looking for its
initial win of the season, now 0-5 and 0-3 in OL play.
