Ray – The Stanley Blue Jays picked up a key 64-52 district 16 road win over the Ray Jays on Saturday.
Stanley standout sophomore Wyatt Hanson followed up his 32 point performance against the Parshall Braves last night with a 33 point performance against Ray.
The Blue Jays (11-3) bounced back after a difficult game against Parshall the night before. It may not have been a perfect game for Stanley, but they are confident that they will have everything dialed in for the stretch run of their season.
“Defensively we didn’t play our best game,” said Stanley Blue Jay coach Kory Anderson. “As a coach I take full responsibility of the poor defensive play. I tell my kids before every game that better teams get beat every day, and today I didn’t coach like that. We have a few weeks before the real season begins and we’ll be ready for that.”
Junior Jath Mansfield added 14 points for the Blue Jays, including 8 in the fourth quarter.
The Stanley Blue Jays travel to North Shore on Tuesday.
