WESTFIELD

WESTFIELD – Maple Grove’s Graham Soffel and Corey Wefing are proving to be a dominant one-two punch.

The duo struck again as they combined for 45 points in lifting the Red Dragons (6-6, 1-3) to a 65-48 victory over the Westfield Wolverines (6-5, 3-2) in non-league action.

Soffel led the way with 24 points and 10 rebounds, while Wefing added 21 points, seven boards and as many steals.
