Mancelona falls to Onaway in SVC showdown

Chris Dobrowolski

ONAWAY — When Mancelona and Onaway met in a boys basketball contest on Wednesday, Jan. 19, it was not only a battle for sole possession of first place in the Ski Valley Conference, it was a matchup of the only two teams in the league that had not suffered a conference loss.

Onaway put itself in the driver’s seat in the league with a convincing 91-59 victory over the Ironmen.

The Cardinals’ offense was in top form as they roared out to a 25-18 lead after one period and 46-30 at the half. That was just the warm-up, though, as the Cardinals poured in 30 points in the third quarter alone — including drilling six of their 10 three-point shots during that stretch — to blow open a 76-42 lead.

Trace Miller led Mancelona (5-4, 4-1 SVC) with 23 points and Justin Ackler added 13 points, but it wasn’t enough to keep up with Onaway’s scoring blitz.
