Lake Crystal-Wellcome Memorial scored the first 20 points against the visiting varsity boys on Monday en route to a decisive 97-32 triumph.

Five and a half minutes into the game, Carter Dylla scored the Clippers’ first basket. The senior guard led the Clipper effort with nine points.

“It was another tough game,” said Mike Meyer after his second outing as the Clippers’ head coach. “We’ve got a lot of work to do: work hard in practice, play a little more full speed and work on some fundamentals.”

The Knights, who fell to Martin County West and beat Madelia in the Valley Conference, were in front 61-13 at the half but, under running clock, laid up late in the second half and didn’t break a hundred.

With a pair of threes, Colin Krenik totaled six points. Blake Lyons and Kolby Gens each added five points. Braeden Hastings posted four points. Gabe Sullivan scored two points. Lucas Walechka was held to one free throw.

Dylla made a pair of baskets from behind the arc. Gens also hit a three. The Clippers made half of their dozen foul shots. The Knights made nine three pointers.
