Huskie boys find W against Parma
If the shots aren’t falling, you better make sure the opponents’ aren’t either. That’s exactly what the Emmett Huskies did last Tuesday. A tenacious defense held visiting Parma in single digits in each of the first three quarters and Emmett got its first win of the young season, 44-31.
Seven steals translated into 13 points for Emmett and the Huskies blocked six Panther field goal attempts on the night. The Huskies built a 21-12 halftime lead after scoring the first points of the game and never trailed.
Harry Mumford scored eleven points to lead all scores. Bryr Walker grabbed 12 rebounds to led Emmett in the boards. Caden Young added another ten rebounds and seven different Huskies scored in the game.
Emmett, 1-3, is on Christmas break, returning to action with a non-conference road game at Ambrose School in Boise on Jan. 3 and a league game at Bishop Kelly on Jan. 4. The boys return to Huskie Court on Jan. 7 versus Vallivue.
Wrestlers on short end of pin-fest

Jake Johnson (195) and Tyler Berry (220) each recorded first-round pins in their matches and Layne Feasal Dalton recorded a 9-3 decision to account for Emmett points.
