Playing in their first game in a week, Ellsworth hoped to put an end to a four-game skid dating back to Dec. 21. There was no luck to be found in that regard, however as the Panthers traveled to New Richmond on Tuesday and came home with their fifth-straight loss — a 93-78 defeat.
The score represented a new season-high for Ellsworth as it had its highest total of points scored and the most scored against in a game. Much of the damage against came from CJ Campbell, who torched Ellsworth for 49 points.
Ellsworth’s Mason Anderson was no slouch in the scoring department either as he recorded a season-high 33 points. Jack Janke also had a huge game tying his season high in points with 22. Shane Lange was the only other Panther to score more than five points as he ended up with 10 on the night.
Ellsworth, 3-6, will host Spring Valley on Friday to close out the week.
Wolves win streak ends at 2
Three days removed from its first win streak of the season, Elmwood/Plum City saw it end as quickly as it began. The Wolves hosted Mondovi on Thursday and were looking for their third consecutive win and fifth in the conference. It wasn’t to be however, as E/PC fell 66-56.
The score was tied 31-31 at the end of the first half, but Mondovi squeezed a little more out in the second half to complete the victory.
Dayne Whipple led E/PC with 15 points, followed by Luke Webb with 11, Basil Gilles with 10 and Tyler Bauer with eight.
E/PC, 5-4, has eight days to get back on track as it is next scheduled to play in Boyceville on Friday, Jan. 22.
Prescott recovers with conference win
Coming off of two Middle Border Conference losses, Prescott needed to right the ship and find the same success it had through much of December. That success was found Tuesday night when Amery visited, as the Cardinals cruised to a 79-40 victory.
Prescott stormed out of the gates with a 38-20 halftime lead that they only increased in the second half by outscoring the Warriors 41-20. Leading the charge for the Cardinals was Jordan Malmlov with 26 points, four rebounds, three assists and two steals. Other key contributors included Dallas Wallin with 15 points, five rebounds, four assists and two steals, Tanner Dalman with nine points, Justin Syverson with eight points and four assists, and Philip Seifert with eight points and a pair of rebounds and assists.
Prescott, 7-4, is next scheduled to travel to Baldwin-Woodville on Tuesday, Jan. 19.
