Chugiak defense clamps down in win over Wolves
A balanced Chugiak’s boys basketball team clamped down on Eagle River in the second half Tuesday night, holding the visiting Wolves to two second-half field goals in a 53-31 Cook Inlet Conference win at Chugiak High.
The game was the first CIC contest for either team.
No player scored in double figures for Chugiak, but the squad got contributions from 10 different players. Zach Hauger led the way with nine points, followed by Ty Carlos (8), Kade Worley, Tyler Trevino and Hunter Harr (7 each), Terrence Coates (6), Josh Wilson (4), Parker Stone and Karletty Faamatuinu (2 each) and Jared Bautista (1).
The game was tight through the first half, with the Mustangs clinging to a 24-19 lead at the break in front of an energetic home crowd.
Chugiak pulled away in the third quarter behind scoring from six different players as the Mustangs’ lead ballooned to 15. Eagle River was lifeless down the stretch, scoring just three points in the final quarter.
Aaron Davis led all players with 11 points for Eagle River, Ryan Adkins added nine, Daniel Toribio had seven, and Savion Wilson and Bryson Rollman scored two each.
