Boys' basketball roundup

The Daily Mining Gazette

HOUGHTON - Houghton shut visiting Ewen-Trout Creek down in the second quarter, allowing a single point and ensuring a comfortable 59-38 home win Friday.

Houghton (8-3) already had a four-point lead entering the frame, but had a 22-point lead (35-13) after it, which was more than enough to overcome what coach Jared Lawson said wasn't a great shooting night for the Gremlins

"In the second quarter, our defense was really able to clamp in a little bit and Ewen missed some shots that led to some quick fast break points for us to gain some separation," he said.

Lawson complimented Sean Hyslop's efforts bolstering Houghton's full-court press.

The Gremlin offense was highly balanced, led by 11 points apiece from Hyslop and Nate Gockenbach. Eero Niemela had 10 and two others scored eight.

For E-TC (3-10), John Berglund and Lane Brown had nine points apiece.

Houghton has a three-game week next week starting with a make-up at Ishpeming Monday. E-TC is at Wakefield-Marenisco Tuesday.

Calumet 57, Jeffers 22

CALUMET - The Copper Kings controlled the game on both ends of the floor Friday, allowing just 21 percent field-goal shooting and recording 52 percent.

Paul Torola poured in 20 points on 9-of-16 from the field for Calumet (8-4).

Calumet led 23-10 at the half and kept the pressure on, improving its offensive output in each quarter.

The Copper Kings, who were 23-for-44 from the field, play a make-up at Ontonagon Monday.

Jeffers (7-6), which had only six makes on 29 attempts, was led by seven points from Brant Ryynanen. The Jets host Houghton Tuesday night.

Lake Linden-Hubbell 61, Ontonagon 23

ONTONAGON - The Lakes continued their march through the CCC schedule with a blowout win at Ontonagon Friday, scoring 24 and 21 points in the first two quarters to build an insurmountable 45-14 halftime lead.

Ontonagon coach Tim Nelson said his team couldn't handle LL-H's pressure and had nearly 20 turnovers in the first half.

"There wasn't one thing I could point at tonight that I thought we did well," he said.

Luke Monette poured in 21 points for the now 13-0 Lakes, who can clinch the league title with a win in their next CCC game, though that isn't until Feb. 14 vs. Jeffers. Brett Poissant added 15 points and Tyler Roose 10.

LL-H's next game may be its toughest to date, at home vs. L'Anse next Friday.

Ontonagon falls to 2-10, 2-4 CCC and hosts Calumet Monday night.

Baraga 53, Dollar Bay 32

BARAGA - The Vikings snapped a five-game losing streak with a win on their home floor Friday.

Zac Owens poured in 22 points and Brendan Varline 16 as Baraga got its first win of the season in front of the home crowd.

"We were just finally able to get open and just knock some shots down," coach Scott Artley said.

The Vikings took a 20-13 lead into the half, then reinforced it with 19 in the third quarter as their defensive pressure started wearing on the winless Bays.

Baraga (3-9, 3-3 CCC) is at rival L'Anse in a make-up game Monday.

Dollar Bay (0-13, 0-7 CCC) was led by 12 points from Carl Kangas. The Bays are idle until a home game next Friday vs. Ontonagon.

Republic-Michigamme 59, Chassell 46

REPUBLIC - The Hawks' 23-4 advantage in the first quarter set the tone and proved too big a gap for the Panthers to overcome.

"We put pressure on them early and got some turnovers and easy shots," R-M coach Bill Radcliffe said.

The Panthers (1-11) outscored R-M 13-10 in the second quarter and 14-9 in the third, but couldn't finish the comeback in the final period.

For the Hawks (5-8), Marcus Antilla scored 17 points, Hunter Schultz had 16 and Philip Koski 15.
