Ely drops regular season final, gets tourney win

IRON JUNCTION— The Tigers proved elusive for Ely in their season finale as Cherry’s impressive shooting ability made the difference in a 71-49 contest. “We never got into a flow on either end of the floor,” said Ely Head Coach Tom McDonald. “Cherry shot the ball very well against us and we had no answers defensively for them.”
Sophomore guard Joey Bianco led the wolf pack with 14 points, while senior Brock LaTourell scored 12, and senior Will Davies notched 10.
“We shot poorly, at 32 percent, and I never really felt we were in the game with them because of that,” said McDonald.
The Timberwolves bounced back against Lakeview Christian Thursday evening in the opening round of the Section 7A playoffs, winning 65-50 to advance to a Saturday game at North Woods.
