McCONNELLSBURG - A monster second quarter by McConnellsburg enabled the Spartans’ boys basketball team to rest easy for the rest of the game Friday night.

McConnellsburg out-scored rival Forbes Road 29-7 in the second period to take a 41-13 halftime lead on its way to a 61-34 Sideling Hill/Inter-County Conference victory.

“In the beginning of the game we ran the offense well and got good looks, but we didn’t make many shots,” Spartans coach Dane Pollock said. “But the guys stayed with it, and the second quarter made up for it - we made everything.

“We had no turnovers and eight assists in that quarter. There’s no way to bottle that up, but we’ll probably watch that film because that’s how you want to do it.”

Jake Boehme scored 18 points for McConnellsburg (16-3, 12-2 SHL, 10-2 ICC), while Landon Richards scored 15 points and had 10 rebounds for what Pollock guessed was his first career double-double. Chase Novak added eight points and eight assists.

Pollock said, “We had 22 assists and eight turnovers for the game, and that’s with the starters out in the second half. We played well in both games this week.”

For the Cardinals (6-14, 4-11 SHL, 4-9 ICC), Aaron Schepis and Brycen Hohman each scored eight points.
