The Florence Falcons continued working on their high speed, up-tempo game plan and came away with two more wins over the weekend. They topped Frenchtown in non-conference action on Thursday and then rolled over Deer Lodge on Saturday.
Frenchtown kept things interesting for three quarters, even taking the lead at one point in the second quarter behind the three point shots of Bridger Truest and Daniel Lebsock. But a couple of key shots by Ryno Baerlocher put the Falcons back in the lead. Florence ace Aaron Ward had 21 points to lead the team, even though he sat for much of the second quarter.
