Greenway’s quick start sinks Ely

Wolves take first in Ely tournament

Posted

ELY— Greenway was unstoppable in the opening minutes here on Tuesday night as they scored 27 unanswered points against the Timberwolves enroute to a 69-46 win.
“We didn’t score until the nine-minute mark and they made almost everything they shot at the basket,” said Ely Head Coach Tom McDonald. “We had only five rebounds at halftime and we just couldn’t do anything with their size and athleticism.”
Ely freshman Joey Bianco led scoring for the Wolves, with 11 points and five assists, while sophomore Harry Simons added nine points.
Tuesday’s contest was a let-down after a successful holiday tournament hosted by the Wolves. “We played well defensively in both games and beat Isle 84-42,” said McDonald. Senior Dylan Fenske poured in 22 points while fellow senior Bryce Longwell added 12 points and 18 rebounds for a double-double. Senior Eric Omerza added 14 points, while junior Emmett Faltesek added 13 and junior Brock Latourell added 11.
Ely got the jump on Bigfork in their second contest, running up a 24-3 margin in the early going, and cruised to a 74-48 win. Fenske led scoring for Ely, with 25 points, while Omerza added 23 and Latourell added ten.
