It was an easy win for coach Dick Simpson’s No. 2-seeded Carey School Panthers (13-8) on Wednesday night in a first-round game of the Northside Conference boys’ varsity basketball tournament at Carey.

Promising 6-2 freshman Joe Parke scored 15 points with 7 rebounds and 3 assists as Carey opened the defense of its Northside tournament title with a 64-21 home victory over the No. 7-seeded Community School Cutthroats (4-14).

All 10 Panthers scored points as Carey built a 34-5 halftime lead and breezed to victory. Carey passed extremely well (18 assists) and held the Cutthroats without a field goal for more than 13 minutes.

The outcome put Carey into the semi-finals of the eight-team tourney. Carey hosts No. 3-seeded Lighthouse Christian (16-5) Monday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m., with a berth in next Wednesday’s championship game at Gooding High School at stake.

Visiting Carey defeated Lighthouse 67-56 on Jan. 12 in the only meeting of the year between the two schools.

Also Wednesday, Lighthouse advanced 50-43 over No. 6 Murtaugh; top-seeded Dietrich (19-2) downed No. 8 Bliss 98-29 and No. 5 Castleford (9-10) bumped No. 4 Richfield (7-10) into the loser bracket of the single elimination consolation bracket meet by a 54-43 score.

Only the top two teams in the league tournament qualify for the State 1A Division 2 meet Feb. 28 in Caldwell. Carey is seeking its 17th state tournament berth in the last 21 seasons. Dietrich is hoping to win its first Northside tournament championship since 1992.

Carey contributors Wednesday were Jordan Dilworth (13 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists), Poncho Gamino (10 points, 2 boards, 2 assists), Luis Garcia (6 points), Sheldon Hansen (7 points, 6 rebounds, 2 steals), Nate Adamson (4 points, 3 rebounds, 3 steals, 5 assists), Gunner Thompson (3 points, 2 boards), Patrick Baird (2 points, 2 rebounds), Matt Whitworth (2 points, 2 boards) and Glen Andrews (2 points, 7 rebounds, 2 assists).

Mike Payne’s Cutthroats finished with 12 steals led by freshman Garrett Rawlings (2 points, 2 rebounds, 5 steals).

Other Cutthroat contributors were Taylor Adler (5 points, 2 assists), Colton Sholtis (4 points, 4 rebounds), Bobby Corker (3 points), Reed Roudabush (2 points, 4 rebounds, 2 steals, 1 block), Ben Swift (2 points), Gunner Gibson (2 points, 6 rebounds) and Nick Krekow (1 point, 2 rebounds).

The Cutthroats aim to keep their season alive Monday when they travel to Murtaugh (6-14) for a 7 p.m. loser-out game.
