Huskies down MCS boys

Bridgewater-Emery took down Mitchell Christian in boys action.


EMERY -- Bridgewater-Emery’s transition offense guided it to a 65-29 win over the Mitchell Christian boys basketball team on Monday.

After scoring 16 points in the first quarter, the Huskies led 32-13 at halftime. Bridgewater-Emery extended its lead in the second half, using a 17-point third quarter to gain a 49-33 advantage.

“One of the keys we talked about was trying to limit them in transition,” MCS coach Jesse Tolsma said. “At times we did a really nice job of it. But overall, we weren’t able to execute that for 32 minutes and allowed them to get confidence and easy baskets to get them going.”

Sutton Arend scored a team-high 15 points and five rebounds for the Huskies. Camden Dye added 13 points and Rylee Schultz scored 10 points. Bodie Burnham chipped in eight points and dished out seven assists in the win.

Nathanael Anderberg paced the Golden Eagles with 10 points. Aiden Leber chipped in six points, while Max Reynen pulled down seven boards.


“(Bridgewater-Emery) looked to get in transition, so defensively they looked to apply ball pressure and generate offense from their defense,” Tolsma said.

Bridgewater-Emery (9-4) plays Freeman Academy/Marion on Tuesday. Mitchell Christian (2-9) travels to Ethan on Thursday.
