Cardinals Wrap Up Victory Over Frewsburg At Foul Line

RANDOLPH – Two traditional rivals battled it out on Tuesday night to close out the regular season and things stayed close between Frewsburg and host Randolph, but the Cardinals (8-4, 11-7) had just enough when it counted to pull out a 60-53 win in Division 2 boys basketball.

Nathan Beaver landed on the bench after two quick fouls just 17 seconds into the game as the Bears (4-8, 7-11) got out to a 19-15 lead.

Thats when Cody Oldro stepped up, scoring nine of his 17 points in the second quarter and Randolph took a two-point lead at the half.

“We changed defenses in the second,” said Randolph coach Kevin Hind, “then managed to push the lead to nine in the third. They were never out of striking distance all night long.”

Frewsburg cut the lead to five points in the fourth, but some critical free throws down the stretch helped the Cardinals to retain their lead.

For the winners, Beaver scored 17 points and added eight rebounds, Bryce Morrison had 14 points and five assists and Mitchell Maycock picked up seven rebounds and four assists.

Josh Nelson led Frewsburg with a game-high 24 points and had three assists and three steals and Alex Elderkin added 15 points, eight rebounds and two blocks.
