Ely girls, Chisholm boys grab hardcourt wins

ELY — The Ely girls’ basketball team took the lead for the final time with about 30 seconds to play and held on for a 41-40 victory over visiting Cook County.

Head coach Darren Visser said his club had some fouls to give and the Vikings didn’t get a shot off until the nine second mark. The shot was off the mark and Ely hauled in the rebound to grab the win.

Erika Mattson paced the Timberwolves in the back-and-forth contest.

Overall, Ely struggled shooting, but fought hard and played good defense to scratch out the win. Visser said the victory was a good way to respond after Monday’s loss to Mountain Iron-Buhl.

Ely plays at Mesabi East (9-8) on Thursday.
