Knights take down Trojans
CRYSTAL FALLS — Behind 13 points each from Logan Parolini and Kody Hendricks, Norway slipped past Forest Park 43-34 Tuesday night in Skyline Central Conference action at the Eddie Chambers Memorial Gymnasium.
The Knights (10-5) played well defensively to the approval of head coach Jeff Gallino.
“Forest Park is deliberate in their half court sets and make you play half court defense,” he said. “I thought we did a good job of it tonight. Parolini really came to play tonight on the defensive end of the floor.”
The Knights made their free throws down the stretch to seal the win.
“We really couldn’t figure out a way to put the ball through the hoop at times tonight,” said Forest Park first-year head coach Kurt Lehmann. “Going forward, we have to find a way to hit some shots and work the ball inside. Norway did a good job of stopping ball penetration.”
Keall Emmers led the Trojans with 13 points, while Gavin Johnson added nine points.
Forest Park (7-9) remains home for another SCC matchup, hosting Bark River-Harris Friday night. Norway heads to Powers Friday night to face Skyline foe North Central.
