R-W Boys haven’t found niche

By Staff | Feb 7, 2011

Rolette-Wolford continues to struggle this basketball season. They had two games, one on Friday, Jan. 28, when the Comets took on #1 rated North Star at Rolette. The second was on Tuesday, Feb. 1 against St. John at St. John.

North Star managed to get 20 points before Rolette-Wolford could get a shot that went in. North Star’s Grant Lindahl came away from the game with 23 points. Eight other team members added to the scoreboard for North Star.

Joe Mongeon stepped up for the Comets making 11 points, a game high for him this season. He has improved his performance and is willing to take more good shots, according to Coach Jesse Vote.

“Mongeon attacked the basketball really well that night,” said Vote.

Jaden Pfeifer put in seven points, Everett Lervik, 5, Chris Julson, 4, Mark Wibe, 4, and Casey Mattson, 3 for the Comets.

The final score of the game was North Star 67, Rolette-Wolford 34.

At Tuesday night’s game against St. John, the Comets only gave up four offensive rebounds. However, there were too many turnovers, defensively.

“Attitudes weren’t good last night (Tuesday),” said Coach Vote. “They were worrying about what’s ahead and not focused on the game.”

However, he added that the shooting percentage (38%) was higher than usual.

“We shot the ball pretty well,”said Vote.

Jaden Pfeifer came through with 17 points, Lervik contributed 9, Julson, 6, and Mongeon, 4. Casey Mattson and Luke Marion each added 2 to the scoreboard.

The game ended with a score of 58 for St. John and 44 for Rolette-Wolford.

The comets will be working on areas where they come up short as they finish the season.
