ELY—Freshman Madeline Perry had one of the biggest nights of her young career here on Monday as she put up 15 points to help the Timberwolves cruise past Fond du Lac 68-40. “This was a game where everyone got to play a lot, allowing us to continue developing our younger players and preparing all of them to play at the varsity level,” said Ely Head Coach Darren Visser.
Senior Erika Mattson led the way for Ely with 17 points and eight rebounds, while fellow senior Winter Sainio added eight points and six boards. Senior Brielle Kallberg added seven points and nine rebounds, while eighth-grader Grace LaTourell added seven points for the Wolves. Ninth-grader Taylor Gibney also chipped in with six points and five rebounds.
Ely found a much bigger challenge last Thursday when they fell to visiting Mesabi East, 68-38. “This was another top-ranked team that we were able to compete a little better with,” said Visser. “At one point in the second half we cut the lead to 14 but they just had too much fire power and were able to regain a sizeable lead.”
Mattson led the way in scoring again for the Wolves, with 20 points and added 12 rebounds for a double-double. Sainio added eight points and six rebounds, while Rachel Coughlin scored four and tallied eight boards. LaTourell scored five points on the night.
The Wolves were set to visit North Woods on Thursday, Feb. 13. They’ll host Northeast Range next Thursday in their final home game of the regular season.
