WAYNESBORO - Cameron Keck banked in the game-winning shot with less than 15 seconds left to lift Waynesboro to a victory over James Buchanan in a tightly-contested boys basketball game Saturday night.

The Indians prevailed 54-53 in the Mid Penn Colonial Division scrap. Waynesboro (5-13, 4-7 MPC) continued a late-season surge with its fourth win in the last six games.

"The guys never gave up on each other or the staff and kept fighting," 'Boro coach Tom Hoffman said. "We're scoring better and that has helped. It's been a nice turnaround - we're 5-5 in our last 10 games."

The Rockets (11-8, 5-6 MPC) are going the other direction, falling for the fourth straight game on the heels of a five-game win streak.

Keck poured in 19 points to pace the Indians, including 10 in the third period, while Kyle Hoffman added 14 and Mitch Neterer had nine.

The Rockets took the lead, but on the Indians' next possession, Keck drove into the lane, got bumped, but still pulled up and banked his shot off the glass. JB missed a shot and Waynesboro's Ogo Akamelu grabbed the rebound. He missed a 1-and-1 free throw and the Rockets' Cody Tacker was a little long on a desperation 3-pointer at the buzzer.

For James Buchanan, Ryan Hege scored 14 points and Tacker added 10. Tacker scored seven points in the fourth quarter.

Hoffman said, "We broke out to a 7-0 lead, but then they tied it up. We might have had one more lead of seven, but for the most part it was back-and-forth with neither team ahead by more than four points. There were a lot of lead changes."

"We just couldn't maintain the level of focus after the first half,” Mercersburg coach Sean Crocker said. “Hill out-executed us, out-hustled us and probably out-coached us. We need to get better at facing pressure in the half court to be competitive with great teams like Hill."
