T-Wolves clobber Nighthawks

BABBITT- The Timberwolves showed little mercy to host Northeast Range here last Friday as they held the Nighthawks to just a dozen points in a 62-12 shellacking. Ely virtually stole the game, notching an astonishing 35 steals in the contest.
Ely sophomore guard Madeline Kallberg and freshman Sarah Visser both had career nights. Visser nearly notched a triple-double, with 18 points, nine rebounds and eight steals, while Kallberg tallied 19 points and six steals. Rachel Coughlin added eight steals.
“The offensive flashes from both Sarah and Madeline were very exciting to see,” said Ely Head Coach Max Gantt. “This win was a real morale boost for us. We showed some flashes of potential, especially on offense. We were pushing the ball up the floor with purpose and pace. It was fun to see.”
It was a marked turnaround from an otherwise lackluster season to date. “Hopefully we can build on this win as we have three straight games coming up,” said Gantt. “We have been improving all year and this was wonderful way to come back after a tough loss last week.”
Ely returns to the hardwood on Friday, playing at Cherry. They face the Bluestreaks in Chisholm on Monday and host Cook County next Tuesday. Tip-off for all three games is at 7:15 p.m.
