DILLSBURG Greencastle-Antrim picked up a significant boys basketball victory for two reasons Tuesday night when it beat Northern York 62-51 in a Mid Penn Colonial Division game.

First of all, it kept the Blue Devils (13-7, 9-2 MPC) in the hunt for a District 3 Class AAAA playoff berth. Second of all, it was the 100th win for coach Gary Martin, who had 15 at Cedar Cliff and now 85 for G-A.

“We really needed this one,” Martin said. “It might come down to Chambersburg and us.”

The Blue Devils and Polar Bears each had the same number of field goals and 3-pointers - the difference came at the foul line. Greencastle was 16 of 20 on free throws and Northern was only 5-for-12.

“Free throws made the difference,” Martin said. “Especially early, we went to the basket and put a couple of their players on the bench in foul trouble, and that eventually opened up the outside shooting.”

Ian Gelsinger led G-A with 17 points, a career high, Casey Hoover had 16 points and Bryan Gembe contributed 10.
