Boys BKB Beat Shipley, Advance in PAISAA
The rematch gods work in mysterious ways.
Back in December, at home, Penn Charter's boys basketball team was thumped by Shipley, 70-50, in a non-league game.
Wednesday night, the teams met again, at Shipley, in the first round of the PAISAA Tournament and the Quakers scored the final 14 points to claim a 66-52 win.
Junior Mason Williams achieved perfection on six late free throw attempts en route to 20 points and senior Adam Holland, who collected five assists along with 16 points, likewise was a major factor.
Frosh Ryan "Pooch" Holmes (11, pictured above) also scored in double figures, senior Mike "Neeko" Hnatkowsky nailed two treys to help provide early good vibrations and senior Justus Sanders wound up claiming 12 rebounds, the most by a Quaker this season.
Also, in the fourth quarter, senior Dylan Burnett contributed four points, three rebounds and a crucial blocked shot.
Best wishes, meanwhile, go out to junior swingman Will Samuel, who was injured after making a dive to recover a loose ball. Be well, friend.
PC will meet archrival Germantown Academy in a quarterfinal. Details TBA.
