Collette’s Last Second Shot Pushes T-Wolves Past Cruisers


Down by one with seconds remaining, Morton-White Pass found its magic late in a huge non-league contest with Eatonville. 

Pushing the ball in transition, the rock ended up in senior Leytan Collette’s hands, and with 4.8 seconds left on the clock, he put a lefty layup through the net to give the Timberwolves a 69-68 road win. 

The Timberwolves (7-4, 2-1 C2BL) had three players in double figures, with post Josh Salguero leading the way with 19 points, Gary Dotson adding 16, and Collette scoring 14. But it all started in the post for MWP. 

“They’re big and physical, but we pounded it inside anyways,” MWP coach Chad Cramer said. “We pounded it in there and our guards did enough scoring to get the win. It was a good coming out party for Josh (Salguero), we fed off that and guys scored off him.”

The T-Wolves will look to carry all that positive momentum right into league play on Monday, when they’ll take on a hungry Rainier squad on the road at 7 p.m.
