TWO HARBORS– The Timberwolves showed Two Harbors they’ve come a long way this season as they downed the Agates here on Tuesday, 42-33. Ely had lost their first game of the season to Two Harbors, so they were eager to even the score.
“The game was a little sloppy, but a big run in the second half that was sparked by our defense put the game out of reach,” said Ely Head Coach Max Gantt. “It wasn’t our prettiest win, but it was a win we needed and earned. Sometimes you have to just find a way, and we did that.”
Grace LaTourell had a big night for Ely, pouring in 17 points and tallying six rebounds and four assists. Rachel Coughlin was a powerhouse on defense and scooped up seven boards. Katrina Seliskar notched ten points and five boards.
The Timberwolves had little trouble with a young Northeast Range squad in Ely on Monday, as they topped the Nighthawks 60-31. “It was a good team win,” said Gantt. “We started a little slow, but our defense helped us get going with some easy baskets and we cruised after that.”
LaTourell against led offensively, with 18 points, while adding four steals. Madeline Kallberg notched ten points and four steals, while Sarah Visser did it all, scoring nine points, six assists, six boards and five steals.
Playing in International Falls last Thursday, Ely fell to the Broncos, 57-41. The Timberwolves shot 25 percent from the field and that was the story of the game.
“We got open looks and created quality offense, but we just couldn’t put the ball in the basket,” said Head Coach Max Gantt.
Sophomore guard Grace LaTourell had 18 points, five rebounds, and three steals. Sara Visser had nine points, seven rebounds, and three steals.
The Wolves’ defense wasn’t an issue, but with an off-shooting night, they were never able to make a run because they couldn’t string together any baskets in a row.
