CARNEY — Mike Flanagan blocked a shot with 10 seconds left to play, helping the Carney-Nadeau boys hang on for a 51-49 basketball triumph over the Stephenson Eagles.

A 3-point shot by Beau Koffman put the Wolves up by two points with 40 seconds remaining and Flanagan’s block enabled them to gain possession in the closing moments of the Skylne Central Conference match-up.

“Stephenson didn’t have enough fouls and time ran out before they could get us to the line,” said C-N coach Jake Polfus. “Their zone forced us into a bad situation. We missed some shots and started to rush. We had a ton of shots in the lane, but we couldn’t make them. We were lucky to get a victory out of this.”

Koffman led the Wolves (3-0 overall and SCC) with 17 points. Brett LaFord added 16 points and 12 rebounds.

“Brett has been playing pretty well and Beau had 10 points in the fourth quarter, which helped us.”

Joey Starzynski paced the Eagles (0-4 overall, 0-3 league) 14 points. Merlin Thoune and Bryce Keuhnaw had 10 apiece.

C-N committed a season-high 14 turnovers and hit 19-of-63 field goals. Stephenson had 20 miscues.

The Wolves, who also won the jayvee contest by two points, host North Central Thursday. The Eagles host Bark River-Harris Friday.
