Ely off to strong start with back-to-back wins

LITTLEFORK— Ely’s Will Davies notched a double-double last Friday to lead the Timberwolves to a 79-39 blowout over host Littlefork-Big Falls. The defense-led win lifted Ely to 3-0 on the young season, despite shooting that was as cold as the weather.
“We didn’t shoot the ball very well and that won’t win many games for us,” said Ely Head Tom McDonald. “All in all, it was a bad shooting night.”
The Wolves connected on just six of 27 attempts from beyond the arc, while managing a somewhat better 45 percent (23 for 51) from two-point range. But the Wolves worked the boards hard all night, providing many second chances that allowed them to rack up a solid win.
Davies led offensively with 20 points and added 14 rebounds. He also recorded seven steals, narrowly missing a rare triple-double. Joey Bianco put up impressive numbers as well, with eight points, nine rebounds, eight assists, and six steals. Brock Latourell scored 15, while Harry Simons added 12. Emmett Faltesek notched ten points.
The boys are set to take on the Golden Bears this Friday, in Eveleth. They’ll be back home on Tuesday, when they host Deer River. Tip-off is set for 7:15 p.m.
