The Wolfpack’s painfully long conference winless streak continued last week with losses to Mounds View and White Bear.
Mounds View jumped out on top of Park 47-22 in the first half of their game last Tuesday. The Wolfpack turned out a better second half, outscoring Mounds View 27-19, but it wasn’t enough as they went on to fall 66-49.
Tim Vorwerk and 10 points for Park in the loss.
The Wolfpack suffered a similar first-half disparity in the Friday home loss to Park. The Bears were on top 43-19 at the half before pulling further away in the second half and leaving Cottage Grove with a 79-44 win. Vorwerk was Park’s leading scorer with 13 points. The Wolfpack got scoring contributions from nine players, including six points apiece from Robert Briggs, Ryan Klika and Anthony Tola.
The losses extended Park’s conference winless streak to 47 games. The schedule got no easier this week as Park (2-13; 0-7 SEC) traveled to Woodbury to take on the conference-leading Royals on Tuesday, after the Bulletin went to press.
The Wolfpack play East Ridge (6-8; 3-4 SEC) at 7:15 p.m. Friday at East Ridge.
