Randolph Takes Advantage Of Frewsburg Scoring Drought

FREWSBURG – Frewsburg started off strong in its battle with Randolph on Tuesday night, but went into a sudden scoring drought that allowed the Cardinals (4-2, 7-4) to come away with a 56-51 win in Division 2 boys basketball.

“We had a huge lead, but just couldn’t hang on to it,” said Frewsburg coach Tom Nelson with Bears putting up 20 points while Randolph scored just eight in the first quarter.

Things turned around quickly as the Cardinals outscored their opponent, 27-14 over the next two periods.

“They (Randolph) seemed to change their defense, but it really came down to us not executing,” said Nelson.

Bryce Morrison was the scoring leader for the Cardinals with 15 points and made it a double-double with 10 rebounds. Down the stretch, he was 5 for 8 from the foul line, hitting some key shots that kept the Bears at bay.

Also for the winners, Nathan Beaver poured in 11 points while Connor McCalister had eight points and 10 rebounds. McCalister was also key in the fourth period with six points.

Alex Elderkin had another big night for the Bears (2-4, 5-7), netting 25 points with eight boards while Josh Nelson and Brett Johnson contributed 10 points apiece. Johnson also picked up the double-double by pulling down 10 rebounds.
