Canfield boys basketball coach Todd Muckelroy encourages his players to take open shots, especially when they are from behind the all too tempting 3-point line.
Zach Tinkey and Ethan Kalina are two of the Cardinals players who appreciate that coaching logic.
Tinkey scored a game-high 21 points, Kalina added 12 and the two combined for seven of their team’s nine 3-pointers as Canfield defeated Boardman 55-45 in All-American Conference, Red Division action Tuesday night at James W. Watkins Gymnasium.
The All-American Conference is an OHSAA-sanctioned league, created in 2008 as the result of the merger between the Trumbull Athletic Conference and the Metro Athletic Conference in Ohio. The league has 21 different member schools, with 17 sports offered throughout fall, winter and spring sports seasons.
