Cardinals Fly Past Golden Tide 67-36

DUBOIS — Senior-oriented DuBois Central Catholic outscored the Curwensville Area High School boys basketball team in every quarter for a 67-36 Allegheny Mountain League South Division victory Tuesday night.

Christian Bakaysa was the lone Golden Tide player in double figures with 15 points.

Cardinal standout Justin Miknis matched that number with five three-pointers on his way to a 25-point performance that topped his 22-point average.

Josh Solnosky added 11 markers.

DuBois Central Catholic (5-6, 2-1 AML-South) set the tone by taking a 17-6 lead in the first quarter and widening it to 36-17 by halftime.

“We weren’t consistent the whole game against Brockway (Friday), but I felt we had taken some steps forward,” Curwensville coach Matt Wassil said. “Tonight, we took two steps back.

“We shot a low percentage, and that just seemed to compound our turnovers. I thought we would handle their press better, but we stepped right back into our old habits.”

The Golden Tide (0-8, 0-3 AML-South) goes on the road again Thursday to face Harmony in a Moshannon Valley League game.
