Thursday night the Carlton boys basketball team took an eight-point, 66-58, win over Wrenshall by doing the little things right.

"I thought we played real well against Wrenshall," said Carlton coach Mark Cool. "That was the first game since Moose Lake-Willow River earlier this year that we put two good halves together."

The Bulldogs only outscored the Wrens by four points in the first half, but they did the same thing in the second half to claim the win. At the end of the half it was Carlton leading 31-27.

"It was a very exciting back-and-forth finish," commented Cool. "We did the right things to get the win."

The Bulldogs went 17-for-27 from the free-throw line and they also managed to hit five three-point shots in the win. Key to the Bulldogs win was the 31-point effort from Justin Schwartz who also hit four long-range shots himself.

"Justin absolutely took over in the second half," explained Cool.

Meanwhile, the Wrens didn't go softly into the night as Jon Bartczak poured in 23 points, Kyle Ziebarth added 14 and Jordan Berglund was also in double figures with 11 points. Also scoring for the Wrens were Evan Swanson with seven and Joshua Jacobson with three points.

On the Carlton side, it was Josh Dahl dumping in 12 points, Chris Domogalia and Taylor Shanda both added six, it was Matt Ostby hitting for five, Travis Gran scored four and Mike Saunders added two points.
