Silver Bay's Weston Monson, Riley Tiboni and Mason Ollman combined for 50 points, mostly in the second half, as the Mariners ran away from Wrenshall for a 65-47 win Dec. 20 in Silver Bay.

The teams played evenly in the first half, with Silver Bay taking a 28-27 lead into the locker room.

In the second half, however, the Mariner offense came to life, raining down 3-pointers and building a 17 point lead over the first nine minutes of the second half.

Monson led the Mariners with 19 points and Tiboni had 17, including four 3-pointers. Ollman finished the game with 14 points.

Wrenshall's Eli Krisak led all scorers with 21 points; however, no other Wren scored more than seven points.

Following a two-week holiday break, Silver Bay (3-4) is scheduled to play Cromwell-Wright on Thursday, Jan. 3, in Silver Bay.
