WILLOW HILL - Tyler Green went off for a career-high 30 points to help McConnellsburg hand rival Fannett-Metal a big loss Friday night.

The Spartans used a 27-12 bulge in the second quarter to take the lead for good and capture a 78-67 Sideling Hill League and Inter-County Conference boys basketball victory. Green had 11 points in the decisive period.

"I didn't think he had that many until I looked in the book," Tigers coach Greg Best said. "But he was consistent - he had at least six in every quarter."

Green got plenty of help - Jesse Swope scored 15 points, Nick Daniels had 12 and Hunter Miller added 11 to the cause. The Spartans are 5-10 (2-8 SHL, 3-7 ICC).

Best said, "Both teams shot the ball well early - we were on fire and we hit all five of our 3-pointers in the first period. But McConnellsburg continued their hot shooting and we didn't. They attacked the hoop more than we did. We fought back in the fourth, but the hole was too big."

F-M (10-6, 5-5 SHL, 7-3 ICC) led 25-20 after a furious pace in the first period.

For the Tigers, Jordan Hurrell led with 23 points, Ben Metcalfe tossed in 20 points, a career high, and Bryce Chilcote added 15.

Friday, at Hustontown

Sideling Hill/ICC game

Southern Fulton held Forbes Road to its lowest output of the season "They were more aggressive than we were, and a lot hungrier," Cardinals coach Jeff Gelvin said. "When you have three starters who don't even score, that's not a good sign. We just don't play tough enough." Tristan Gelvin (13) and Macklin Hawkins (10) led Forbes Road (2-14, 0-10 SHL, 1-8 ICC) in scoring For the Indians (9-6, 6-5 SHL, 7-4 ICC), who have won 4 games in a row, Nick Smartt tossed in 20 points, Alex Seburn added 10 and Jordan Clingerman grabbed 10 boards Connor Litton had 5 of the Indians' 15 steals SF coach Kent Hendershot said, "We're getting better as a team and individually on defense. Our guards played well and limited their ability to get into the paint. I think we frustrated them and that forced some turnovers and made it easier for us."

Shippensburg 45, OT

Friday, at Boiling Springs

Mid Penn Colonial Div. game

It was pretty easy to spot Shippensburg's problem in an overtime loss to Boiling Springs - the Greyhounds made only 9 of 27 foul shots, including 4-for-12 in the fourth period and 1-for-5 in OT "We were up 39-36 with under a minute to go and missed two free throws - it could have been a two-possession game," Ship coach Ray Staver said Instead, the Bubblers' Matt Gelber (23 points) came down and hit a 3-pointer with 17 seconds left to tie it With 2 starters fouled out, the Hounds (9-10, 6-6 MPC) couldn't stay with Boiling Springs (13-6, 7-4 MPC) in OT "We also missed three easy layups, with nobody around us," Staver said Ship got 16 points from Reid Singhas, 15 from Mac Miller and 10 from Ty Kater.
