COOS BAY — The Seaside Gulls did not score their usual 80-plus points Wednesday night — or even 60-plus — but the Gulls showed that they can still win on an off night, as they escaped Marshfield with a 56-46 win over the Pirates in a nonleague boys basketball game in Coos Bay.

Seaside was held to a season-low in points, and even trailed 32-29 late in the third quarter, following a layup and score by Marshfield’s Scott Clough, who finished with a game-high 26 points.

But Jackson Januik’s score at the buzzer to end the third period gave the Gulls a 33-32 lead, and Seaside would not trail again.

Hunter Thompson connected on a 3-pointer early in the fourth, Chase Januik scored on a drive to the hoop, and Duncan Thompson’s bank shot had the Gulls in front with five minutes left, 42-37.

Still, the Pirates closed to within 45-44, before Seaside was able to close it out at the free throw line, where the Gulls were 10-for-12 in the fourth quarter. Three Marshfield starters fouled eventually fouled out.

Chase Januik led Seaside with 18 points, followed by Jackson Januik with 16.

Seaside improves to 7-0, and will return home to close out 2016 with a nonleague game against St. Helens next Wednesday.
