Wolves plagued by ball-handling woes

Turnovers allow South Ridge to crush Ely 67-18

Posted

ELY— The Timberwolves learned a tough lesson here on Tuesday night: You can’t score if you don’t have the ball. And South Ridge drove the point home as they held Ely to just 18 points in a 67-18 shellacking.
It was a rough outing, but but Head Coach Max Gantt chalked it up to a learning experience for his young squad. “Yes, we struggled to get shots and make shots, but we are looking to put this loss behind us and keep building. They blitzed us early and as a result, we had unnecessary turnovers,” he said.
Offensive stats were limited for Ely, as junior Katrina Seliskar led the team with five points. Sophomore Madison Rohr added three points while her classmate Rachel Coughlin grabbed seven boards.
Adella Olesiak was the leading scorer for the Panthers, posting 28 points and five three-pointers. Svea Snickers also had a solid performance, with 21 points.
“South Ridge is a very good team. We are just building experience. We need to improve on protecting the ball and make overall better passes. We will keep moving forward,” Gantt said.
The Timberwolves will be back at home against Silver Bay on Thursday, Feb. 25. Tipoff is at 7:15 p.m.
