Visiting Galena used a key run to turn a close game into a comfortable win in 4A boys basketball action Saturday afternoon at Carson.

The Grizzlies’ Ben Imse and Matthew Sanchez hit back-to-back 3-pointers to give Galena a 53-43 lead with 2:37 left to play. The Senators weren’t able to make much headway after that, eventually suffering a 56-45 loss in a rematch of a Northern Region playoff game from last season.

The Senators got off to a solid start, leading 11-8 after the first period. The teams were tied at 21-21 entering halftime.

Carson dropped to 4-11 overall and 0-6 in Northern 4A games. The win was the fifth straight for Galena, which improved to 11-4, 3-3.

For Carson, Justin Moore (13 points) and Mouhamed Fall (11) combined for more than half of the team’s points. Fall finished with three of the Senators’ five 3-pointers. Landon Hoff and Jordan Tabaracci added five points apiece. Galena guard Bohdan Wilson led all scorers with 20 points.

Two days earlier, Carson dropped a 70-38 decision to Reed in their return to league action following the holiday break.

“It takes 32 minutes of focused effort, especially taking care of the ball,” Carson head coach Ty Golden after the loss to Reed. “It’s no secret we’ve had a lot of injuries and guys that have had minutes that don’t usually have them. It’s next man up.”
