McConnellsburg 71, Cumberland Valley Christian 9 >> McConnellsburg continued its unbeaten season with a dominant win over Cumberland Valley Christian in a non-league game.

The Spartans (5-0) limited CVC (0-7) to single-digit points, with five of nine Blazer points earned at the foul line.

“We only let up two field goals defensively; we played good team basketball,” McConnellsburg coach Dane Pollock said, “And we had three guys in double figures, and eight guys scored. Overall as a team, I thought we got into a better rhythm.”

Despite outscoring the Blazers by more than 60 points, Pollock admits the team needs to improve at the foul line. McConnellsburg went 6-for-16 Monday.

“We need to work on our foul shooting, and we’re not getting to the foul line enough,” Pollock said. “That’s how you win close games.”

Jake Boehme led the Spartans with 19 points and six steals, followed by Chase Novak with 13 points and five assists. Quintin Miller scored a double-double with 12 points and 11 rebounds.

Shalom outscored the Lions 25-8 in the second frame to take a 35-17 lead at the break.

“We came out strong defensively and did a good job of matching Broadfording's intensity,” Shalom coach Danley Shank said. “In the second quarter we continued to play strong defense and we also were able to run good team offense to get open looks at the basket.”

Jonah Stains led the Flames (6-3, 3-0 MDCC) with 25 points, and converted 11 of 12 attempts at the free throw line. He scored virtually all of his points in the second and fourth quarters, Shalom’s most productive frames.

Cameron Roseman had 14 points for Shalom, followed by 10 from Barrett Eshbaugh.

Shank said, “In the second half we got away from running our offense and Broadfording’s defensive pressure forced us into some bad decisions, but the guys stayed together and were able to get our best win so far this year.”
