Ryan Foley scored 14 and points and Jacob Finkbeiner added 11 points as the Saline varsity boys’ basketball team romped at Lincoln Park, 60-20, Tuesday night.

Saline won its ninth straight game to improve to 9-1.

Saline led 9-5 after the first quarter and then exploded for 23 points in the second quarter. Finkbeiner and Foley each had seven points during the second quarter. Saline’s notoriously stingy defense allowed just four points in the second quarter and Saline led 32-9. The Hornet D was even tougher in the third quarter, giving up just three points.

Emmett Turner scored nine points for Saline. Erik Wenning added seven points. Nate Gresser and Justin Zylstra (five points), Nick Herrin (four points), Calder Pellerin (three points) and Connor Terech (two points) also tallied for Saline.

Saline hosts Skyline at 7 p.m. Friday.

Here Saline maintain its winning strategy, we have found a good game plan by Saline and with the help of good coaching facilities, they can easily achieve their goals. Most probably without consistency, it is quite tough to perform continuously so we definitely need good coaching, maintain a high level of dedication towards our game, stay motivated and regular practice. These are the key success of Saline's game plans and their winning strategy. I have been watching Saline and their games from the beginning and hope this winning strategy they can maintain until the end. I hope we can learn some basic basketball techniques from Saline.
