From staff reports

SAXTON - Southern Fulton accomplished a couple of tough things on Tuesday night: The Indians won a close game instead of losing one, and they defeated Tussey Mountain on the Titans' home floor, 53-46.

SF had lost five games by seven or fewer points going into the Sideling Hill/Inter-County contest, including a one-point loss earlier to Tussey.

Jordan Clingerman paced the Indians (8-6, 5-5 SHL, 6-4 ICC) with 17 points and 13 rebounds and Brady Golden added 12 points.

SF coach Kent Hendershot said, "We've been so darn cose all season. We eliminated a lot of mistakes that have cost us against good teams. Tonight we bent, but we didn't break. To do that on their floor is really a big boost for our confidence.

"Jordan Clingerman had a monster game inside, and Jake Ashkettle, too, with four blocks. Their big kid, (Luke) Zelanko hurt us the first time we played. We held him to 11 this time."

Tussey Mountain (10-6, 7-3 SHL) was led by Mike Mitchell with 15 points and Eric Husick with 14.
