HUSTONTOWN - McConnellsburg's boys basketball team played another ugly one, but came out with a Sideling Hill League/Inter-County Conference win Friday by defeating Forbes Road, 53-32.

McConnellsburg (10-2, 6-1 SHL, 5-1 ICC) scored seven points in the first quarter of the Spartans' sluggish start, running into shooting trouble early.

“We missed probably 10 layups in the first half,” McConnellsburg coach Dane Pollock said. “We couldn’t catch a break early.”

McConnellsburg was 16-for-32 when shooting layups, but it bounced back in the second half, outscoring Forbes Road, 32-41 in the final two frames.

“The first half we played our game and executed our game plan,” Forbes Road coach Trent Black said. “Then we came out in third flat and got down and couldn't get back.”

McConnellsburg was led by Chase Novak with 14 points, followed by Landon Richards and Jake Boehme with 13 and 12 points, respectively. Quintin Miller led on the boards, with 11 rebounds and scored eight points.

Aaron Schepis paced the Cardinals (4-9, 2-6 SHL, 2-4 ICC) with 14 points.
