ELY— Home court was no advantage for the Timberwolves on Monday as the visiting Rangers routed Ely 93-31. “We are in the tough part of our schedule right now and we just need to continue to work to improve and get healthy,” said Ely Head Coach Darren Visser.
The Wolves, now 13-6, couldn’t get anything going as Mt. Iron-Buhl’s tough defense largely shut down Ely’s senior duo, Erika Mattson and Brielle Kallberg. Mattson managed to make it to double digits, with ten points on the night, while Kallberg added nine. Eighth-grader Grace LaTourell, who has been showing real promise in recent weeks, added six points while freshman Madeline Perry added four points.
It was a closer contest last Thursday in Eveleth, but the end result was the same as they fell 62-45 to the Golden Bears. Mattson poured in 18 points and Kallberg added 15, but it wasn’t enough. Perry added six for Ely, while eighth-grader Sarah Visser tallied four.
The Wolves were set to host Fond Du Lac on Monday. They’ll travel to North Woods next Thursday to take on the Grizzlies.
