Carlisle spoils home opener for Perry cage teams

June Rey Reisberg brings the ball up the floor for Perry last season.

Carlisle followed a 62-26 win in Raccoon River Conference girls basketball Tuesday with a 62-35 win in the boys contest to spoil the first home action of the season for the Perry cagers.

The Wildcats wasted little time in taking control of the opener, rushing to a 21-5 lead after eight minutes of play. Perry played nearly even with their guests in the second quarter, but the visitors still entered the break with a 33-15 advantage. A 19-4 Wildcat run over the third stanza ended any hopes of a comeback.

Lydia Olejniczak’s 13 points led Perry, with Quinn Whiton and Kathryn West each adding four points. Jayna Kenney and Lainie Fish both had two points, with Kennedy Tunink tallying a free throw. Additional statistics were not available.

Katie Keeney led Carlisle with 16 points, with Emma Pitts and Sydney Berg both having 11 points to power the visitors.

Perry trailed only 10-7 after the first period of the boys game and were within range, down 29-18, at the break. A 19-12 Carlisle edge in the third period created a 48-30 gap, and Perry simply could not shrink the deficit.

June Rey Riesberg had a career-high 15 points for the Bluejays, who received six points apiece from both Sincere Johnson and Jeremy Mateso. Jordan Ochoa tallied three points, Matthew Booker and Dalton Scott two each and Caden Steva one.

Cole Osterhaus, Tyson Guard and Karson Dunn had 12 points apiece to outscore Perry on their own.

Additional stats were not available.

Perry returns to action Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. They visit West Central Valley and then Carroll before hosting Greene County on the weekend, with the girls game Saturday starting at 2 p.m.
