It was raining three's Tuesday night in the Bainbridge High gym, and the Sequim Wolves got drenched.

The Spartans used the deluge from downtown to win 84-67 inĀ  Bainbridge's season opener in boys basketball at home. The Spartans sank 9-of-16 from beyond the arc, and finished with 30-for-63 shooting overall.

Junior guard Joey Blacker paced the Spartans with 24 points and was the game's high scorer. He had two three-pointers in the first quarter alone and Bainbridge led 16-12 at the end of the first stanza.

The Spartans pushed their lead to 40-28 at the half, but the Wolves kept it interesting. They rallied to cut a 56-44 Bainbridge lead to 56-50 at the end of the third quarter.

The Spartans kept their composure, however, and beat back the Wolves' attack, outscoring Sequim 28-23 in the fourth quarter.

Blacker finished with four three-pointers.

Sophomore guard Trent Schulte contributed 20 points to the Spartan victory, and connected on 4-of-5 shooting from three-point land.

Blake Swanson and Oskar Dieterich knocked down 11 points each, and Nick Edens added eight for Bainbridge.

Dieterich finished with 12 rebounds, while Blacker collected eight off the boards.
