A pair of talented Goodhue brothers couldn’t be stopped Monday in the Class 1A west subsection semifinals at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester against the Glenville-Emmons’ boys’ basketball team.

Blayne and Ashton Erie combined to score 54 of Goodhue’s 69 points in a 69-45 victory over the Wolverines to end the season for the fifth-seeded Wolverines, who advanced to the subsection semifinals with a thrilling 57-56 overtime victory against Blooming Prairie.

Glenville-Emmons entered the game as winners in 12 of its past 13 games.

“They’re just tireless players,” said Glenville-Emmons head coach Dan Fredrickson. “They are very talented.”

Blayne, a 6-foot-5 senior headed to Minnesota-Duluth, scored a game-high 32 points and Ashton, a 6-foot-4 junior, scored 22 for the top-seeded Wildcats.

The Wolverines (18-7) trailed by four with five minutes to go in the first half when Goodhue (16-12) started a 10-0 run to close the half.

Glenville-Emmons cut it to a 10-point deficit near the midway point of the second half, but too many turnovers plagued the Wolverines in the second half, Fredrickson said.

“You let up for a second against a team like that and they score points in a hurry,” Fredrickson said.

Glenville-Emmons junior Peter Hansen led the team with 11 points and senior Derek Sanderson finished with 10 points for the Wolverines, who finished with the third-best record in school history and made their first trip to the Mayo Civic Center since 2002.

“Heck of a way for the seniors to go out,” said Fredrickson, who added that the group of seniors started as sophomores and won a total of four games that season.

Glenville-Emmons graduates seven seniors from the roster.
