Twists, Turns, and a Win at Ryan
Talk about strange circumstances.
Tuesday night, Penn Charter's boys basketball team played a non-league game at Archbishop Ryan that featured a dramatic twist, then an even more dramatic turn.
The Quakers were outscored, 14-5, over the final three minutes of regulation, then dominated the OT session with a 10-1 advantage. Final score: 69-60.
PC went ahead for good, at 62-60, on a three-point bucket by senior Mason Williams (13 points) off a pass from soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes (16 points). Senior Will Samuel was a game-long, multi-faceted factor with 22 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and four blocks while junior sub Ryan "Zingy" Maloney had all five of his points and six of his eight rebounds beyond the third quarter.
The girls hosted SCH Academy in an Inter-Ac contest and were nipped, 50-46.
An impressive overall performance by soph Kait Carter featured 10 points, 11 rebounds and six assists. Frosh Kait Hnatkowsky had eight points and five boards while soph Hayley Hunt offered four points and seven boards.
