     It was a good night for the CareyHigh School boys’ and girls’ basketball teams Tuesday night when the Castleford Wolves visited Carey for Northside Conference games.

     The Carey boys (6-6) won their fourth consecutive game with a 40-36 victory sparked by a 16-point scoring effort by Baley Barg (16.0 ppg). The Panthers broke open a 15-15 halftime tie with a 12-7 edge in the third quarter and stayed on top through the end of the game.

     Carey lived with the 3-point shot in its five previous wins, but relied on tough defense in a rematch of last February’s Northside tournament championship game won by Carey 57-56 on the Murtaugh floor.

     Scorers were Jordan Dilworth 6 points, Jack Cenarrusa 6, Dillon Cenarrusa 6, Chance Chavez 4 and Garrett Lee 2.

     In Tuesday’s preliminary, the Carey girls (6-4) won their second straight game 41-27 over Castleford behind 21 points by Jaide Parke (12.1 ppg). Micaela Adamson added 12 points, Nicole Gomez 5 and Morgan Parke 2. Carey started fast, building a 22-11 halftime lead.

     The Carey teams entertain CamasCounty today, Friday and go to Murtaugh Tuesday.
