By that point, Carson led 35-8 and had the contest out of reach.
Nine players were listed on the score sheet as Carson was led by Bella Kordonowy’s 12 points.

Galena’s defense stifles Carson boys
For the second time this season Galena boys basketball held Carson under 40 points.
The Senators got off to their notorious quick start before the Grizzlies reeled them back in.
Parsa Hadjighasemi led Carson with 11 points while Joey Summers finished with nine.
“We execute our game plan so perfectly in the first quarter then in the second quarter we have to do the same thing again,” said Glover. “I think we put pressure on ourselves to repeat it. … We don’t respond well enough to it, yet.”
Summers, who suffered a lower leg injury during the game, was expected to play Tuesday, according to Glover.
