Ninilchik boys 71, Seldovia 58
The Ninilchik Wolverines picked up a 71-58 Peninsula Conference victory over the visiting Sea Otters on Saturday. The Warriors jumped out to an early start, and led by 10 at the half. They were just getting warmed up.
Ninilchik returned after the half with a hot hand, jumping out to a 27-point lead. Warrior coach Nickolas Finley began substituting younger players to get them some playing time and let his starters take a well-deserved rest on the bench.
Seldovia turned up the heat in the second half, fighting back to cut the lead to 10 with about a minute left to play in the game.
Jack Wheeler led all scorers with 26 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists. Sam Mireles and Hunter Keogh had nine points each for the Wolverines. Ninilchik is now 3-2 overall and 3-1 in the league.
