Senior Night Heartbreaker
Boys varsity basketball held a Senior Night ceremony prior to Friday's Inter-Ac game vs. Malvern Prep.
Along with their parents, Michael Berk, Evan Ferrell, Sean Foley (unable to play this season due to injury), Jake McCain and Harrison Williams were introduced to the crowd by PA announcer John Burkhart, and all were able to enjoy warm applause while posing for pics with coach Jim "Flipper" Phillips.
Alas, the game produced a 65-61 loss.
PC quickly fell into a 10-2 hole, but rallied little by little and even claimed a 59-58 lead with 3:16 remaining as junior Dylan Burnett recorded a three-point play off a truly terrific feed from classmate Adam Holland, causing the members of Quaker Nation — kids AND adults — to go wild.
The momentum was not sustained. MP scored the next seven points to assure it would leave with the win.
Williams (15), soph Mason Williams (14), Burnett (11) and junior Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky (10) scored in double figures and Holland (eight) came close. Burnett snagged nine rebounds while Holland and Hnatkowsky halved eight assists.
