Ely boys off to a strong start with back-to-back hoops wins

Posted

ELY— The Timberwolves are off to a good start in an abbreviated boys basketball season as they tallied big back-to-back wins against Bigfork and Mt. Iron-Buhl this past week.
Playing at home on Saturday, all five members of Ely’s starting lineup reached double digits in scoring for the second straight game. It was all Ely in the early going as the Wolves jumped to a 22-0 lead en route to a 95-50 shellacking of the Huskies. Joey Bianco led the way with 26 points, followed by Will Davies, 22, Emmett Faltesek, 15, Harry Simons, 14, and Brock Latourell, 10. Simons and Bianco both had six rebounds, Faltesek had nine assists, and Bianco had seven. “We shot the ball well in the first half of the game and played well on the defensive end of the floor,” said Ely Head Coach Tom McDonald.
Saturday’s big win came on the heels of their 75-58 season-opening victory over Mt. Iron-Buhl. Faltesek led scoring for Ely, with 21 points, while Davies added 16 and Bianco 14. Simons added 12 while Latourell contributed with ten points.
“We played well on both ends of the floor and it was a great team effort. It was a good win against a very good opponent,” said McDonald.
