Chargers defeat Wolves for second win of season|
The Wittenberg-Birnamwood varsity boys basketball team was back in action Tuesday as it hosted Wisconsin Valley Lutheran in a non-conference contest.
Despite a 28 point performance by Wolves’ Branson Witucki, the Witt-Birn Chargers came out with a 53-45 victory.
Witt-Birn held a first quarter 9-8 edge and went into half-time with a 24-21 lead.
The Chargers outscored WVL 17-11 in the third quarter with a nine point lead going into the fourth.
Brant Linke led a balanced Charger attack with 10 points on 4-10 shooting and 2-5 behind the arc. Aaron Monnot followed with nine points going 4-8 in shooting.
Sam Szews scored eight, Nick Kapitz tallied seven, Dylan Dadacki had six, and Tyler Milanowski had six points and 11 rebounds for the home squad.
Witt-Birn shot 21-48 for 43 percent and 4-12 in three point attempts (33 percent).
“It was a good overall effort from the team tonight and it was nice to see us have several contributors on the offensive end of the floor. I was happy with how we came out after halftime, made the necessary adjustments on offense and really distributed the ball well. Brant found his stroke in the second half and had a nice night shooting from the floor. Trevor Stewart also gave us some great minutes in the second half,” head coach Lon Ebel said.
The Chargers, now 2-2, are back in action on Dec. 10 as it hosts Stevens Point Pacelli in the 7:30 p.m. tip.
