FIELD TWP – North Woods senior Cade Goggleye set another career milestone here on Monday night as he scored his 2,000th career point in a matchup with Fond du Lac. The Grizzlies went on to rout the Ojibwe, 103-34.
“The amazing thing about his scoring mark is that he has done it while being a very unselfish player,” said Head Coach Will Kleppe. “Only scoring when it benefits his team really makes it more impressive. If Cade wanted to hit 2,000 points, he could have done it a long time ago if that was what he wanted to do.”
Goggleye scored a total of 19 points during the game, while notching six steals and seven assists as well.
Freshman guard T.J. Chiabotti actually led the team in scoring against Fond du Lac, scoring 24 points with eight assists and seven rebounds. Junior forward Trevor Morrison added another 20 points with 11 rebounds, for a double-double.
Last Friday night, the Grizzlies took their winning streak on the road to Mesabi East, where they topped the Giants, 77-66.
Morrison again led the team in scoring with 22 points along with 11 rebounds, while Cade Goggleye posted 18 points, four rebounds and three assists. Senior forward Ian Sherman rounded out the top scorers with 12 points.
“In both games we played some good basketball,” Kleppe said. “Everyone is playing some good defense.”
The team remains ranked sixth in the state going into their final regular season games, the first of which will be tonight at home against Chisholm. The Grizzlies then hit the road next Tuesday facing Carlton before ending the season at Deer River next Friday. Tipoff for all games is 7:15 p.m.
