CLEARFIELD -- On paper, Fremont was expected to mop the floor with Clearfield.
On the court, the Silver Wolves took care of business and waxed the Falcons 59-24 on Tuesday evening.
In a matchup of first and worst in Region 1, Fremont went on a 21-0 run during the second and third quarters to easily put to rest any designs Clearfield had on an upset bid.
"We talked about making a run and coming out stronger in the third quarter," said Fremont coach Corey Melaney. "We were able to execute what we wanted to do and it helps to make some shots."
"On defense, it's nice to have guys inside to alter and change shots. It leads to some fast breaks when our guards can funnel the plays into our bigs," Melaney said.
Fremont held Clearfield to single-digit scoring in three of the four quarters, nine field goals all night, and the Falcons got their only basket of the third period with 42.2 seconds remaining.
Late in the game, Melaney was concerned that the Silver Wolves committed what he called unnecessary fouls. "We don't want to put them at the line and give them free points. We played well, but we're not perfect."
Except at the charity stripe, where the Silver Wolves went 13-of-13 to complement a good floor game.
Tate Lewis led Fremont with 17 points, while Patrick Fishburn chipped in 13 and Brock Smith added 10.
For Clearfield, Danny Johnson was nearly half the offense, netting 11 points.
* DAVIS 61, WEBER 50: At Pleasant View, the five-time defending league champion Darts went 0-of-10 from 3-point range, but outscored the Warriors 38-16 in the paint.
Davis shot 47.8 percent (22-of-46) and outrebounded Weber High 37-24.
The Darts' Morgan Dunford scored a team-high 16 points and grabbed six rebounds. Trever Webb added 15 points and Jace Johnson had 13 for Davis, on a four-game winning streak.
The Warriors' Curtis Child had a team-high 14 points and three of Weber's seven 3-pointers (7-of-19). Hayden Schenck scored 10 points and had seven boards for Weber, which shot 40.5 percent (17-of-42) and is 4-5 spanning its last nine games.
* LAYTON 53, NORTHRIDGE 43: At Northridge High, the Lancers held the Knights to only 16 points in the first half and rolled to a crosstown victory.
Rees Checketts and Tom Christensen scored 15 points apiece and Max Magill chipped in 13 for Layton.
Kade Peterson was the only Northridge player to finish in double figures, a game-high 23 points.
* SOUTH SUMMIT 70, LAYTON CHRISTIAN 46: At Layton, the Eagles fell behind early and couldn't come back.
Levi Thompson hit five 3-pointers en route to a game-high 21 points and three Rydalchs scored nine points each for South Summit.
Jake Bigler led LCA with 13 points and Quincy Mason added 10.
