NORFOLK — Cody Carlson scored 14 points in the first half to help give Stanton to a lead they would not relinquish as they ousted Elgin Public-Pope John 55 to 38 Tuesday night.

Nearly everything the Mustangs did in the first quarter worked and, conversely, nothing seemed to go right for the Wolfpack. Stanton scored the first eight points of the game. The Wolfpack’s first basket came when senior Zach Polk drove the lane and dunked the ball at the five-minute mark. Wolfpack fans roared their approval, but nothing seemed to faze Stanton.
