Third Period Downfall for Ellwood Boys Basketball

Heading into the second half of the Ellwood City and Beaver Boys Basketball game last night, no one imagined that the final score would result in a whopping 63-48 victory for the Bobcats.

The teams were neck and neck throughout the first two periods, going into the locker room with a score of 26-24. The third period, however, was a rough one for the Wolverines as the Bobcats outscored them by 18 points.

Beaver was hot across the board. Leading the way offensively was sophomore Darius Wise, who put up a total of 19 points. Senior Austin Saal followed closely for the Bobcats, sinking 15 with a perfect 4 for 4 at the free-throw line.

Beaver’s Nick Barney and Austin Zurik evened out with 11 a piece for the night. Both boys scored two three-pointers among their total points.

The visiting Bobcats allowed only one Ellwood player to score double digits. Junior Rick Roth lead the Wolverine offense with 10 points as Ricie Scott and Nick Ioanilli both chipped in 9.

Other contributors for the Wolverines included: Trey Moses (5), Brady Kosior (4), David DeLoia (3), Nick D’Itri (3), Angelo Williams (3) and Anthony Roth (2). For the Bobcats, Zach Royba also added 4 and Dante Anzevino 3.

Ellwood City will visit Hopewell this Friday where Junior Varsity will play at 6:00 p.m. and Varsity at 7:30. The Wolverines’ record is currently 4-8, 1-4 in the section.

Lady Wolverines Basketball Earn First Section Win

The Ellwood City Girls Basketball team found success in their conference for the first time this season last night. The Lady Wolverines picked up their first section win against Central Valley, 43-41.

Junior Karington Ketterer was a compelling force in the Ellwood City victory. Ketterer put up 17 points on the board with 7 rebounds and 1 assist. Ellwood’s Bailey McKinney also helped to lead the offense as she contributed 12 points for the Wolverines.

Central Valley’s offense didn’t get off easy with junior Allie McKelvey on the court. McKelvey had a total of 10 rebounds and even upped the score by 4 points.

“The girls dug in and did what it took to win,” said assistant coach Dena Noble. “Allie McKelvey came up big defensively and Bailey and Kett put points on the board.”

The duo of the Lady Warriors’ Krista Sudar and Jocelyn Zuk still continued to fight until the end. Sudar totaled 12 points, including two three-pointers, as Zuk had one field goal among her 11 points.

Despite the efforts of Central Valley, the Wolverines still picked up their long awaited section win on their own court.

Other scorers for Ellwood include: Jocelyn Guy (8) and Cortni Prine (2). Respectively for Central Valley, Leah Alexander had 9, Sydney Sutter 7 and Kaleah Jones 2.

“I think this game gave us the confidence that we needed after three tough section games,” said Noble. “Even though I don’t think we gave our best performance, we’ll take the section win.”

The Wolverines move to a record of 4-6 (1-3) where they will meet at Shenango next on Thursday. The Junior Varsity will play at 6:00 p.m. and Varsity at 7:30.
