ELY— Timberwolves senior forward Dylan Fenske poured in a career-high 36 points here on Tuesday as he surpassed 1,000 points to lead Ely to a 93-31 rout of Lakeview Christian Academy. “Dylan needed 28 points coming into the game to reach 1,000 points and, in quick fashion, he had 28 in the first half,” said Ely Head Coach Tom McDonald.
While younger players saw plenty of playing time in the mismatch, Fenske continued to add points in the second half. He also added ten rebounds on the night for a double-double.
Fenske also had help from fellow senior Eric Omerza, who added 17 points and nine assists and junior Emmett Faltesek, who scored 15 points. Junior Will Davies added six assists, five boards and five steals to contribute to the cause.
Playing on the road last Friday in Aurora, the Wolves took advantage of Mesabi East penalties late in the game to manufacture a 65-56 win. “We were tied at 56 with a couple minutes left in the game and we hit nine free throws down the stretch,” said McDonald. “I thought we defended well at the end of the game and it was big to hit the free throws to pull away.”
Fenske was on a roll in Aurora as well as he led Ely scorers with 27 points and 14 boards for another double-double. Omerza added 11 points and freshman Joey Bianco added six assists.
The Wolves were set to visit Chisholm on Friday. They’ll be back home on Tuesday to take on the Rangers. Varsity game time is 7:15 p.m.
