Ely tops Northeast Range in a rout

Posted

BABBITT—Shayla Zaverl reached her 1,000th career point on Friday as the Wolves easily outpaced Northeast Range, 59-19. It was the two teams’ second match-up this season, and both ended with an easy Ely victory.

As they did in their first meeting, Ely used the press to keep the Nighthawks off balance, and it helped the Wolves build a 35-4 lead by halftime.

Zaverl, a senior guard for Ely, reached her milestone with just one game to go in the regular season. She will then have at least one playoff game to pad her total.

“This game was also a big game for Shayla as she scored her 1000th career point tonight,” said Ely Head Coach Darren Visser. “This is one of those accomplishments that takes a lot of time and work to obtain.”

Erika Mattson led Ely offensively, with 20 points while Zaverl added 18 to go with a game-high 11 rebounds for the double-double. Brielle Kallberg and Gabi Omerza scored eight appiece.

The Wolves were set to face Deer River on Wednesday as the Timberjay went to press.
