SILVER BAY—Ely senior Dylan Fenske poured in 32 points here on Tuesday to help lead Ely to an 84-62 win over the Mariners. It was a nice recovery after the Wolves fell hard to South Ridge last Friday. The Wolves, now 20-5, will finish up their regular season at home against Wrenshall this Friday before hosting the first round of the Section 7A playoffs on Wednesday.
In action on Tuesday, Ely junior Will Davies was red-hot from the outside, connecting on seven three-pointers to contribute 23 points to Ely’s effort. Senior Eric Omerza added 15 points and 12 assists for a double-double and junior Emmett Faltesek added ten assists.
“We had a nice run to end the first half to take a 43-24 lead and then played well on both ends of the floor to get the win,” said Ely Head Coach Tom McDonald.
In action last Friday, the Wolves struggled to find traction against a big and physical team from South Ridge. “We could never get anything going,” said McDonald. “We were down by ten at the half and continued to fall further behind the rest of the way. We couldn’t handle their size and just didn’t shoot well.”
Fenske scored 13 points to lead all Ely scorers. He had help from Faltesek, with 11 points, and Omerza, with ten.
