Delone Catholic High head coach Jim Dooley emerged from the locker room extremely pleased with the way his team played.

He had a good reason to feel that way.

The Squires had just finished demolishing Frederick, Md., 81-54, in the third annual PA/MD Challenge Showcase on Saturday at Gettysburg.

Delone (11-7) shot 27-of-48 (56 percent) from the field, made half of its 3-point attempts and forced 28 Cadet turnovers.

Sophomore Devon Moore got the Squires off to a blazing start as he scored eight first-quarter points on his way to a game-high 21. The first period ended with Delone in front, 19-14.

The Squires continued their good play in the second quarter and went to the half in front, 38-29. But the third quarter is where they really asserted their will.

Delone broke the game open with a 23-10 advantage in the third quarter and led by as many as 30 points in the fourth quarter.

"For us to be a good team, we have to all play well and we have to get out in transition," Dooley said. "I thought we drove and kicked the ball out well. Then the guys that received the passes made the shots."

The Squires received double digit scoring from four players in addition to Moore. Brett Smith put in 19, Andrew Austin had 15, Jake Wiles came off the bench to score 12 and Tanner Orndorff chipped in 10.

Justin Walker led the Cadets with 11.

New Oxford (6-12) also came out victorious as the Colonials defeated Broadfording Christian Academy, 61-51. The Lions were a late replacement for Highland View Academy.

"I found out about the change yesterday (Friday) at about 4:30," Colonial head coach Jim Zinn said. "I had some info on Highland View from talking to various coaches, but what can you do? You just go out and play."

Junior Austin Kibler took that advice to heart as he put in a career-high 29 points to lead the way for New Oxford.

"Austin is one of our captains," Zinn said. "We need guys to step up and be scorers for us, and he did that tonight."

Broadfording led 14-10 after one quarter, but the Colonials went to the half ahead 26-23, before adding to the lead in the second half.

Mo Sellah and Moni Anderson led the Lions with 13 points apiece.

Host Gettysburg took it on the chin against Poolesville, Md., as the Falcons took down the Warriors, 51-39.

Gettysburg (15-5) shot just 16-of-57 (28 percent) from the field.

"We weren't very good tonight. It was the worst that we've played on offense all year," Gettysburg head coach Jeff Bair said. "We got the ball inside, but didn't finish our chances around the rim."

Despite playing poorly, the Warriors went to the fourth quarter in front, 26-25, but were unable to maintain their lead as the Falcons made some critical hoops and then knocked down 15-of-16 from the charity stripe over the final two minutes.

Junior Trey Thomas continued to play at a high level for the Warriors as he led all scorers with 17 points and collected seven boards.

Collin Turner led the Falcons with 13 points and eight rebounds and Andy Baker contributed 12 points.

For the day, Pennsylvania took four of the six games with Chambersburg defeating Western Tech, Md., 57-49, Carlisle beating Hereford, Md., 61-44 and North Hagerstown, Md., besting West York, 63-54. It was the first time Pennsylvania has won the event. Maryland took the 2012 edition, 4-2, and the inaugural event was split, 3-3.
