Friday Night Action: Wrestling & BKB
In its first home match of the 2015-16 season, held Friday, the varsity wrestling team rolled to a 54-24 win over Episcopal Academy.
Forfeits gave 24 points to PC and 12 to EA. The Quakers added three more six-spots thanks to pins by soph Luke Mattice (195 pounds) and freshmen TJ Henry (113) and Sam Shemtov (132). Decisions went to frosh Wayne Derkotch (170), junior Gene Naumovsky (120) and soph Alex Koenig (138).
PC's winners by forfeit: Seniors James Frye (145) and Adam Cohen (160), and juniors David Giorno (152) and Harold Anderson (220).
Once again Friday, the varsity basketball teams posted a split and the girls were the leaders.
Still basking in the glow of having been honored Wednesday night by the prestigious Markward Club, seniors Hannah Fox and Ayanna Matthews paced a 59-38 triumph over visiting SCH Academy. Fox garnered 19 points and five assists while Matthews mixed 15 points, five rebounds and three apiece of assists/steals.
Lexi Hnatkowsky (12 points, three treys) and Mireyah "Rey" Davis (six points, nine boards, five assists, four steals, two blocks) did a fine job of repping the junior class.
"We played smart and with great intensity on defense, moving our feet and not reaching," coach Joe Maguire said. "This led to many fastbreak opportunities. We moved the ball great on offense in transition and in the half court to find the open person."
Also in the Dooney Field House, the boys were throttled by Germantown Academy, 64-48. The Quakers trailed after one quarter, 21-7, and were unable to manage a significant rally. Junior Adam Holland and soph Mason Williams scored 13 points apiece. Junior Dylan Burnett added seven rebounds and three assists. Photos of boys JV and varsity. City of Basketball Love game coverage.
