Cedar Crest 77, Exeter 64

Since visiting Exeter to participate in a showcase and losing two, the Falcons have won three in a row. This streak included an impressive win over Palmyra in the opening round of the Cedar Crest Holiday Tournament to earn a game against Exeter, last year’s PIAA State Runner-up. Without a doubt, this game was going to prove to be a litmus test for just how ready Cedar Crest is to take the next step.

In the game, Crest built a 7 point advantage in the 1st quarter as Fernando Marquez and Aiden Schomp combined for 10 points, with Exeter struggling to deal with their size and strength. In the 2nd quarter, Exeter was able to respond and get a handle on the game ahead of the half. Entering the 3rd quarter, Exeter trailed 32-27 but held the momentum. They would cut the Crest lead to just a single point with a little over four minutes remaining in the 3rd. The Falcons responded by going on a 13-3 run before the quarter was over. Cedar Crest went 10-10 from the free throw line during the quarter, while Leo Tirado and Dylan Groff each scored 5 points. In the 4th quarter, the Falcons were able to ride to victory behind more fine free throw shooting and Exeter’s inability to contain Marquez.

In this Championship game, Marquez led Cedar Crest with 20 points, 9 of which came in the 4th quarter. Schomp scored 16, going 6-7 on free throws. Danny Speaks scored 15 off the bench, going 8-8 from the stripe. As a team, Cedar Crest shot 22-26 on free throws.

Cedar Crest (6-2) is set to host Lebanon on Thursday evening.

Palmyra 54, Lebanon 52 [2OT]

When Palmyra and Lebanon both lost in the opening round of the Cedar Crest Holiday Tournament, it set up an intriguing matchup between two teams that have had trouble winning but have shown hard work and progress over the course of the season thus far. Lebanon jumped out to an early 8-point advantage, as sophomore Daryan Rodriguez went 3-3 on three-point attempts to score 11 in the 1st quarter. Manny Suarez also got a hot start for the Cedars, scoring 6. Palmyra showed that they could shoot as well, hitting four three-pointers in the 1st quarter. In the 2nd quarter, Palmyra’s hot shooting continued, with Hunter Mayer drilling three three-balls to cut the Lebanon lead to just one point at halftime.

The 2nd half included much less offense, with the score becoming tied going into the 4th. As the two teams traded baskets, the tension mounted as neither could hit the go-ahead shot as time expired in regulation. In the overtime, Lebanon’s Juan Torres and Palmyra’s Micah Warner each scored to send the game into another overtime period. Hunter Mayer scored the go-ahead basket that would give the Cougars the lead for good.

For Palmyra, Mayer led the scoring with 18 points, which included four three-pointers. Lebanon was led by Rodriguez, who knocked down five three-pointers on his way to scoring 19.

Palmyra (2-6) is back in action on Wednesday when they take a road trip to play Cedar Cliff. Lebanon (0-9) will travel to Cedar Crest on Thursday night.

Spring Grove 57, ELCO 56

ELCO was on the road to play in the opening round of the Eastern York Holiday Tournament. In the game, the Raiders were matched up against Spring Grove, a team they defeated earlier this month. In this one, Spring Grove would lead most of the game. Trailing by 10 at the half and playing an even 3rd, ELCO got going in the 4th. Dallas George scored 19 in the game as he also nailed three three-pointers.  18 of George’s points came in the 2nd half and 13 of them were scored in the 4th quarter. For the game, Camden Marquette led the ELCO scoring with 23. Two of Marquette’s points came off of a go-ahead bucket with :06 remaining. On Spring Grove’s final possession, a loose ball foul was called, sending them to the line. The Rockets converted and sent ELCO into tomorrow’s consolation round where they will play against Conestoga Valley.

Ephrata 55, Northern Lebanon 27 

On Wednesday, Northern Lebanon defeated Tulpehocken for their third win of the season. The victory earned them a spot in the championship of their own Holiday Tournament, where they were matched up with Ephrata (4-3), a 6A school. For the Vikings, there was no upset to be had. Brady Krall scored 6 points in the 1st quarter to keep Northern Lebanon in it early, but Ephrata broke away on their way to winning the championship.

After the game, Northern Lebanon Coach Chris George told, “It didn’t seem like we had our legs today. All credit to Ephrata, though. No excuses. They’re very athletic and got us out of our offense. We didn’t play with discipline. We can’t beat good teams playing like that. We have to play as a unit. Against teams that talented, we have to be patient and help each other get great shots.”

He went on to address the state of his team following the loss, saying, “Overall, the energy is still high, the kids seem upbeat, and are working to grow, day in and out. This loss will make us better.”

The Vikings have seemingly grown and developed in recent weeks. In addition to the upward trajectory of the varsity team, the JV team moved to 8-0 while winning their championship earlier in the day.

Krall led Northern Lebanon with 10 points. Riley Clinger joined him in being named to the All-Tournament Team. Ephrata’s Caden Landis was named the MVP. Also making the All-Tournament Team were Cooper Trusky (EPH), Aydin Felty (PGA), and Aiden Schwalm (TULP).

Northern Lebanon (3-5) will host ELCO on Tuesday, when George will coach against his son, Dallas.

Cedar Crest 65, Palmyra 34

Cedar Crest hosted Palmyra in the opening round of the Cedar Crest Holiday Tournament. The Falcons were seeking their third straight win, while the Cougars have been sliding since a win over Donegal in their season opener.

This one got out to a slow start, with a 9-8 score in favor of the home team after the 1st quarter. Just when things looked like it was going to be a tight contest, Crest hit the gas in the 2nd quarter and built a 22-point lead by the half, leading 37-15. In the 2nd quarter, Owen Chernich scored 6 to lead the eight Falcons who registered points in the period. Fernando Marquez led Cedar Crest with 8 points at the half. In the 3rd quarter, the Falcons continued to build their lead, but at a slower rate, as Palmyra’s Hunter Mayer hit two three-pointers to spark the Cougar offense. However, with Cedar Crest up by 28 points heading into the 4th quarter, both coaching staffs made the decision to stretch their rotations to give minutes to more players while also resting starters ahead of the games on Friday night.

The Falcons were led in scoring with 10 points from Marquez. For Palmyra, Mayer led the way with 12 points. A total of eighteen players scored in this game.

In “The Cage” on Friday night, Cedar Crest (5-2) will play Exeter for the championship. Palmyra (1-6) will take on Lebanon in the consolation round.

Exeter 79, Lebanon 42 

The Lebanon Cedars entered Thursday having shown positive development in recent weeks. They made the short trip to South Lebanon to play in the Cedar Crest Holiday Tournament, where they drew a tough opening round match-up. Their opponent, Exeter, finished last season as the 4A PIAA State Runner-up, losing to Imhotep Charter in the Finals. While the Cedars scored consistently across all four quarters, they could not keep up with the scoring provided by this year’s edition of the Exeter line-up.

Senior Juan Torres led the Cedars with 14 points.

Lebanon (0-8) will play against Palmyra in the consolation game at Cedar Crest on Friday evening.

Annville-Cleona 50, Kutztown 44

The Dutchmen bounced back on Thursday after losing a close game to host York Tech at their Holiday Tournament. Annville rushed out to an early lead behind a balanced scoring attack. While Kutztown recovered to cut into the lead, they could not overcome Annville’s consistent scoring over the course of the game.

In this win over Kutztown, Anthony Pena led Annville in posting a double-double, scoring 15 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Jon Shay scored 14 points and had 7 boards. Elisha Slabach had 8 points and 10 rebounds.

York Tech 51, Annville-Cleona 48

Annville-Cleona traveled to York Tech for their Holiday Tournament. The Dutchmen were hoping to find their way back into the win column after dropping their last two. The good news is that they would have leading scorer Elisha Slabach back in the lineup after he missed the previous two games with an injury. The bad news is that they were playing against a 6A York Tech team that was fresh off its 23 point romp over Biglerville.

York Tech would use a solid 2nd quarter to take an 8 point lead into halftime. The Dutchmen came out swinging in the 3rd quarter, slowing down the home team and cutting into the deficit. However, in the 4th, they were only able to take another point back and lost by 4. It was a tightly played game in the second half, where the Dutchmen showed resolve.

Jon Shay led Annville with 20 points. Slabach contributed 15 points.

Annville-Cleona (5-3) will be back at it tomorrow in the tournament’s consolation round.

Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Final
Annville-Cleona 11 12 11 13 47

Northern Lebanon 57, Tulpehocken 51

Northern Lebanon has been playing markedly better since beginning the season by having nearly as many turnovers as they did points through the first two games. Hosting Tulpehocken to open the Northern Lebanon Holiday Tournament, the Vikings were looking to keep the momentum going after beating Williams Valley in their most recent game.

This game would be a roller coaster, as the Vikings held a slim 4 point lead at halftime. Brady Krall, Riley Clinger, and Andrew Via each scored 6 points in the 1st half. Of the 28 points scored, 11 came from the free throw line. In the 3rd quarter, Northern Lebanon was able to extend their lead to 11 and looked to be breaking away. Tulpehocken objected and stormed back to the moment that they held a 4 point lead with four minutes remaining. The Vikings dug in and played tremendous basketball down the stretch to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

Krall led the Vikings with 14 points. Clinger finished the game with 12 points, 6 of which came in the decisive 4th quarter. One of the key things that helped the Vikings is that they committed a season-low 11 turnovers.

Northern Lebanon (3-4) will put their two game winning streak on the line when they play Ephrata for the championship tomorrow at 3 pm.

Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Final
Northern Lebanon 12 16 11 18 57
Tulpehocken 10 14 11 16 51
