Fritcher paces Vikings to a win over WEM

Easton Fritcher set the tone early on with some big hustle plays and the Hayfield boy basketball team rolled past Waterville-Elysian-Morristown (3-5 overall, 3-4 Gopher) 76-53 in Hayfield Friday.

Fritcher controlled a steal while he was falling to the ground and he was able to flip a pass up to Ethan Slaathaug for a lay-up in the first half. Fritcher finished with 17 points, nine rebounds, seven assists and five steals.

“Easton had a great all around game,” Hayfield head coach Chris Pack said. “He made some really great plays.”

Isaac Matti added 20 for the Vikings (9-3 overall, 7-2 Gopher).
