Sports Brief: Ninilchik, Nikolaevsk split

Posted: Tuesday, March 01, 2011

The Ninilchik boys and Nikolaevsk girls wrapped up regular-season play in the Peninsula Conference on Monday with victories at Ninilchik.

The Ninilchik boys used a strong third quarter to topple the Warriors 60-45. Ninilchik and Nikolaevsk are expected to play each other in the firsth round of the Peninsula Conference tournament, which starts on Wednesday in Bristol Bay. Monday's game was to see who gets the higher seed, so Ninilchik will be No. 4 and Nikolaevsk No. 5.

The Wolverines led 29-23 at halftime before outscoring the Warriors by 10 in the third and putting the game away. Jack Wheeler had 23 points for Ninilchik, while Billy Riley had 18 and Sam Bennett added 15.

For Nikolaevsk, Mark Fefelov had 14 points, while Blake Klaich pitched in 10.

The Nikolaevsk girls picked up a 31-17 victory by holding the Wolverines to five points in the first half. The loss drops Ninilchik to the fourth seed, meaning the Wolverines will have to play host Bristol Bay in the first round.

Nianiella Dorvall had 13 points to lead Nikolaevsk.
