Black Bears give up 30 points in third quarter
MUNISING – Looking to extend their perfect season into the New Year, the Big Bay de Noc Black Bears took their high-powered offensive on the road to take on the also undefeated Mustangs from Munising last Thursday.
For 16 minutes, it looked like Coach Angie LaLonde had the right game plan to corral the Mustangs. Adjustments by Munising at the half, however, quickly changed the outcome of the contest.
Taking advantage of early foul trouble by Munising, the Bears controlled a 14-9 lead at the end of the first quarter of play.
A 10-point effort by Kaden Pelletier in the second helped Cooks maintain their advantage and a 26-22 lead at the break.
Trailing the Bears throughout the first half at home did not sit well with the Mustangs, who jumped out to a 12-0 run to start the third. A basket by Tyler DeMars put Cooks on the board at the 4:34 mark in the period.
Big Bay will host Stephenson tonight.
The game against the highpowered offense of the Carney- Nadeau Wolverines has been rescheduled for Friday.
With just one loss this season, the wolves are averaging over 70 points per game
Monday Cooks play host to Mid-Pen who are 1-5.
