Northern Lebanon 61, Upper Dauphin 55 [OT]

It was an early game on Saturday, and though at home, the Vikings came out slow against Upper Dauphin. After one quarter of play, Northern Lebanon found themselves down 11. They stopped the bleeding in the 2nd quarter but still trailed by the same deficit headed into the lockers for halftime. Riley Messinger’s offensive effort included 8 points in the 1st half, keeping the home team hanging around. Fortunately, the adjustments were made at halftime, and Northern Lebanon began chipping away at Upper Dauphin’s double-digit lead. Riley Clinger, scoreless in the 1st half, got rolling, scoring 14 points and assisting on three field goals. Luke Shaffer was a major part of the comeback, showing hustle to make it extremely difficult for Upper Dauphin to do much on the court until he fouled out in the 4th quarter.

Going into the final period of regulation, Northern Lebanon had made it a 5 point game. With about eighty seconds remaining, they were still losing by that margin. Clinger then took over, scoring 7 points and forcing turnovers. His explosion included a game-tying three-pointer with twenty ticks remaining to force overtime with the score knotted at 49-49. Upper Dauphin took a quick lead in the extra frame, but a Messinger three-ball gave the Vikings that lead. Brady Krall then sank two free throws to secure the 61-55 victory for Northern Lebanon.

For the game, Messinger was Northern Lebanon’s top scorer with 16 points, including the big shot to give his team the lead. That shot was one of his three three-pointers in the game. Clinger was also huge in the game, scoring 14 points, all after halftime. The senior added 3 assists and 2 steals.

Cedar Cliff 47, Palmyra 41

Palmyra entered their road game with Cedar Cliff fresh off Friday night’s double overtime win over Lebanon for their second win of the season. To win another one, they would need to get by Cedar Cliff, a team whose record was 4-5 entering Wednesday. Of those wins, the 6A Colts have handed Hershey its only loss.

Palmyra got out to an early lead in the 1st quarter behind Hunter Mayer’s two threes, as the senior continued his hot shooting. Brayden Bown hit two more three-pointers in the 2nd quarter, which, combined with 9 points in the 1st half from Tyler Burgess, gave the Cougars a 4 point advantage at the half. The Colts responded with a strong 3rd quarter to take a 2 point lead into the 4th. Trailing 30-28, Palmyra made up the deficit to force overtime. In the extra period, Cedar Cliff spoiled the solid upset bid by the Cougars.

Burgess finished with 17 points to lead all scorers. Burgess scored four of his points by going 4-4 at the free throw line in the 4th quarter. Bown finished the contest with 13 points, hitting three three-pointers and going 2-2 on free throws.

ELCO 71, Northern Lebanon 42

In the finale of the doubleheader, the Raiders and Vikings squared off inside the very yellow gymnasium at Northern Lebanon in what was billed as the “Battle of the Georges,” with senior Dallas George leading his ELCO unit against Coach Chris George’s Northern Lebanon, team. ELCO was hoping to build an early lead and avoid a repeat of the two frantic 4th quarter efforts they put together against Spring Grove and Conestoga Valley at the Eastern York Holiday Tournament.

Luckily for the Raiders, they built an early seven point lead by the end of the 1st quarter behind Micah Gray’s 5 points. In the 2nd quarter, the Raiders hit four three-pointers on their way to extending their lead. Keeping Northern Lebanon in the game was Riley Clinger, scoring 6 points in the 2nd quarter. In the 3rd quarter, ELCO pulled away with a trio of players, each scoring 7 points (George, Camden Marquette, Kaden Shultz Tillison).

For the game, Marquette led the Raiders with 15 points, 13 of which came in the 2nd half. George scored 14 while going 5-5 from the free throw line and taking the foot off the gas against his father’s team in the 4th quarter. Also in double-figures were Gray, scoring 12, and KST, contributing 11. Northern Lebanon was led with 9 points from Riley Messinger.

ELCO (6-4) will next play on Thursday on the road at Lancaster Catholic. Northern Lebanon (3-6) will host Donegal on Thursday.
