Munising boys outlast Manistique in offensive struggle on the road

MANISTIQUE – Gage Webster poured in 19 points and Ben Stasewich hauled down 14 rebounds to spark the Munising High School boys basketball team to a 37-31 non-conference victory over host Manistique on Tuesday night.

The Mustangs (3-1) of head coach Dan Waterman outscored the Emeralds (2-5) by a 13-7 count in the fourth quarter.

“I’m real happy with the kids. They fought and won in a tough environment on the road.”

Waterman also lauded Webster.

“He’s struggling with his shot right now, but he made two absolutely huge baskets for us in the fourth quarter,” Waterman said.

Zach Lambert tossed in 11 points for the Emeralds.

Munising won the JV game, 46-43.
