Wolves scorch Mid Peninsula

Boys basketball

CARNEY — The Carney-Nadeau boys regained their shooting touch Saturday in a 77-47 basketball triumph over the Mid Peninsula Wolverines.

Carney, which had been shooting in the low 30s in recent games, hit 30-of-68 field goals this time.

“I was real happy with our shooting today,” said Carney coach Jake Polfus. “We made some shots in the first half and our percentage increased in the second half. The kids had been putting in the extra time. You just hope the best for them.”

The Wolves held Mid Pen’s Terry Brower to seven points with seven turnovers.

Preston Lauscher hit 23 points for the Wolves (12-7). Jason Kirschner scored 12 points. Max Baumler added 11 points and Brett LaFord had 12 rebounds.

Brandon Nummilen paced Mid Pen (3-15) with 16 points. The Wolves won the jayvee game behind a 41-point effort by eighth-grader Jerry Lee LaFord.
