Submitted photos – Action from Tuesday’s game between South Fork and Calistoga.

The South Fork Cubs continued to roll in boys basketball early this week, winning a pair of games to go to 6-1 on the young season.

The Cubs defeated Hayfork 63-41 on Monday and followed that with a 66-50 win over Calistoga on Tuesday.

South Fork trailed by double digits early against Calistoga, but rallied to tie the game before halftime and then took control after the break.

South Fork’s Oliver Tatton continued his impressive season with a game-high 23 points, including 14 in the fourth quarter.

Teammate Zech Wilkes also had a big night and was instrumental in the team’s 21-point fourth quarter.

“Oliver and Zech have a great connection and their energy feeds one another,” South Fork head coach Taylor Morrow said.

John Harding also had a big night in the win, scoring eight of his 13 points in the second quarter, including a couple of big 3-pointers to get the rally started.

Tommy Rotbergs also continues to impress off the bench and added nine points.

Tatton scored a team-high 14 points against Hayfork, while Tanner Curran finished with 11 points.

Russell scored 24 of his game-high 30 points in the second half.

Alfonso Medina scored a team-high 26 points for the Huskies, while teammate RJ Rexford added 18 points.

The Bruins made good on 18 of 24 free-throw attempts, while the Huskies managed just 10 of 17.

Next up, the Fortuna boys, who are now 3-2, will play at the Arcata tournament, which tips off on Thursday.
