Fremont used the tandem of Mike Siegel and Dylan Krim to top  Shelby 56-50 in its first boys varsity contest at the Packers’ new gymnasium. The game was played in front of about 1,500 spectators.

Siegel came up big down the stretch by scoring nine of his 19 points in the fourth quarter. He added 10 rebounds, five assists and four steals on the night.

Krim made his impact with 20 points, 10 rebounds and four steals.

Despite trailing by eight points at halftime, 31-23, Fremont switched up its defense and limited the Tigers to just two third-quarter points, outscoring Shelby 12-2 in the quarter.

“I told the guys at halftime to stay the course and our shots would fall,” said Fremont coach Pete Zerfas.

Fremont was able to control the tempo in the fourth quarter while making 14-of-16 from the free-throw line.

Shelby was led by Jason Beckman with 18 points. Shane Kajtazi and Andrew Beckman each scored nine points for the Tigers.
