Trojans offense humming

CRYSTAL FALLS – Forest Park jumped on Bark River-Harris 24-8 in the first quarter and posted an 83-43 Skyline Conference boys basketball victory at Eddie Chambers Gymnasium Friday.

“I’ve been waiting for this team to hit on all cylinders and tonight they did,” Trojans coach Chris Nocerini said. “On the defensive end, we were causing turnovers, scoring in transition and running the floor hard.”

Austin Snell, 17 points and six assists; Austin Carlson, 13, and Lee Graff, 12, led the Trojans. Jeff Johnson also had six assists.

Snell, Johnson and Graff each posted three of Forest Park’s 11 steals.
