Northland Eagles kick off 2018 season 3-1

The Northland boys basketball team has begun their 2018-19 season with a solid 3-1 record - a huge improvement from the 2017-18 season totalling three wins.

The Eagles started the season with a tough loss to McGregor at home 67-41 behind 16 points from Cameron Wake and 10 points from Alec Wake. Cameron Wake led on the boards with eight rebounds followed by Kane Perkins with six.

The Eagles then hosted the Hill City Hornets, coming away with a 62-49 victory. The Hornet's John Gowell had a strong first half tallying 21 points at the break, but a halftime defensive adjustment held the big man to only four points the rest of the way, paving the way for the Eagle's victory. Harris Carlson and Kane Perkins led the way in scoring with 22 and 19 points respectively. Cameron Wake played a strong all around game with nine points, six rebounds, four assists, and three steals.

Coach Chris Carlson said that "limiting our turnovers, along with shutting down Gowell in the second half, allowed us to win."

The boy's next game took them to Cherry to face off with a young Tiger squad. After a ragged game, the Eagles trailed by eight with two minutes to go. The team switched to a full court press and the Tigers wilted. After a frantic comeback that saw Carson Johnson score a key lay-up and knock down two free throws, the Eagles came away with a 61-59 victory. Perkins led the way with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Carlson added 16 with Cameron Wake following up with 11.

The fourth game to open the season came against Lake of the Woods. The game saw the Eagles play their best all around game of the year and produced an 86-54 victory.

The Eagles Jumped out early. Cameron Wake, who finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, hit three-three pointers in a row. Carlson chipped in two and a host of other Eagles contributed in the scoring column led by Alec wake with nine.

"It was a good team effort" said Coach Carlson. "We got contributions from everyone including two of our seniors, Lucas Daugherty and Dane Sepin"

The Eagles schedule only gets tougher from here with games against Carlton and Walker-Hackensack-Akeley.
