PREP FOOTBALL: Olympic 13, Sequim 7

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 minutes.

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.

Squandered opportunities

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.

The Trojans play Klahowya, a 19-8 winner over Port Angeles, next week, while Sequim hosts Kingston, a 20-17 loser to North Mason.

In other Olympic League action Friday, Bremerton defeated North Kitsap 34-27.
