Don’t look now, but the Morton-White Pass Timberwolves are coming. And quickly.
All five MWP starters were in double figures with a sixth off the bench, and the Timberwolves upset the Wahkiakum Mules 85-71 in Morton on Friday night, despite allowing 31 fourth-quarter points and an impressive night from Mules senior Jake Leitz.
“We came up with a good game plan and the kids really did a good job of executing it,” T-Wolves coach Chad Cramer said.
Carter Dantinne led MWP with 20 points and nine rebounds, and Tyler Blake had 17 points and nine boards, as well. Gary Dotson added 15 points and 8 rebounds, and Layton Collette had 15 points and six helpers. Kysen Collette pitched in with 11 points.
Leitz had 35 points for the Mules in the loss on 16-of-21 shooting.
MWP led by 31 points at one point in the second half, but, Cramer said, the T-Wolves got a little “lax” on the defensive end and the Mules pounced, leading to that 31-point final period.
But the Timberwolves recovered, stopped the bleeding, and came away with the double-digit upset.
“We knew they were gonna take a swing, and they did,” Cramer said. “And we recovered.”

“I don’t think either team played that well,” Mossyrock coach Adam Deck said.
Senior Tryn Thompson chipped in six points and a team-high 12 rebounds.
“He does all the dirty work,” Deck said. “Diving on the floor, getting rebounds. He’s the garbage man. Every team needs one of those.”
