It was a much closer game than the first time around.
But in the end, a stronger challenge by Northeast Range was pushed aside as host Ely came out on top again.
Led by a powerful 23-point, 15-rebound performance by Shayla Zaverl, the Wolves pulled out a 49-42 victory over the Nighthawks, their second head-to-head win in three weeks.

It wasn’t pretty, but the Ely Timberwolves weren’t looking for style points.

Joe Wenzel’s goal midway through the third period snapped a four-all deadlock and the Wolves held on for a 5-4 high school hockey win over Bagley.
Ely killed off a penalty in the final three minutes and snapped a winless streak that dated back to Nov. 28 and Thanksgiving weekend, and included six defeats and a tie.
Backup goaltender Lori Huseby, inserted late in the second period for starter Mark Killoran, quelled the Flyers for the final 18 minutes and stopped...

Skiers score at home meet

by Tom Coombe
Ely’s Nordic Wolves are making up for lost time.
After waiting for weeks for Mother Nature to cooperate, the high school Nordic skiing teams greeted winter’s late arrival with two meets in four days.
One was at the friendly confines of Hidden Valley, where the Wolves dominated a field that included most of their Section 7 rivals and cruised to victory on a chilly Saturday afternoon.
The Wolves also had a solid outing Tuesday at Mount Itasca, where a shorthanded girls team placed sixth among 16 teams while the boys were third - also in a 16-team field.
Ely skiers are faring well individually, with senior standout Seth Prigge taking first in Saturday’s 5.5-kilometer classic race at Ely, and fellow all-stater Erin Bianco taking third in the girls competition.
