On the same night the Lebanon Catholic boys' basketball team got a much-needed win, its best player and captain, senior guard Timmy Orr, reached a much-desired milestone.

With Orr leading the way with a game-high 21 points, including the 1,000th of his career, the Beavers got back on the winning track Friday night with a 75-22 road rout of Veritas Academy.

Now 13-6, Catholic had more than just the end of a disheartening stretch of four losses in five games to celebrate thanks to Orr dropping in a second-quarter layup in traffic to reach the 1,000-point plateau.

By that point, the Beavers were already in complete control, after storming out to a 27-4 first-quarter lead.

Three of Orr's teammates joined him in double figures in the lopsided victory. Alex Frattaroli hit for 14, Anthony Pletz checked in with 12, and Anthony Thomas dropped in an even 10.

The Lebanon Catholic girls were also victorious in easy fashion Friday night, rolling over Veritas 58-22 in the first game of the girls'-boys' doubleheader.

Helene Reist led four Beavers in double figures with 14 points as Catholic jumped back over the .500 mark to 10-9 for the season. Abby Shay added 12 points, Holly Marinkov tallied 11, and Monica Pastal chipped in with a career-high 10 points as Catholic opened up a 26-7 halftime lead and cruised home from there.

Postponements: The snowy weather that hit the area on Friday afternoon forced the postponement of the Mid-Penn Keystone Division boys' and girls' basketball games between backyard rivals Palmyra and Lower Dauphin.
