Juniors Hustle for a Win in Wildwood

The heroes are not always the headliners.
Exhibit A: The second of two showcase events for Penn Charter's boys basketball team.
Thursday night in Wildwood, NJ, the Quakers downed Cherokee (NJ) by a 53-47 score after falling to Shawnee the night before.
This result turned out to be a win primarily due to the late-game efforts of juniors Dylan Topaz and Ryan "Zingy" Maloney, who are almost always the sixth/seventh or seventh/sixth men.
Maloney made his presence felt by recording back-to-back, three-point plays, thus creating a tie at 44-44. Topaz then mixed great defense and hustle for loose balls with a trey and one free throw and, bingo, the Q's owned the W.
Soph Ryan "Pooch" Holmes was a game-long rock with 17 points and three apiece of rebounds/assists/steals.
PC will complete the 2017 portion of its schedule Friday at Friends' Central.
