Narrow escape

Earlier this season, Northern York handed Waynesboro one of its worst boys basketball losses of the year.

On Tuesday night, it looked as if the Indians might be in for another tough defeat. They trailed the Polar Bears by eight points heading into the final quarter before slowly but surely chipping away at it.

The Indians took the lead for good with about two and a half minutes remaining, and eventually earned a 69-67 victory.

"It could've been a little bit of our style of play that just wore them down a little bit," 'Boro coach Tom Hoffman said. "Some of the shots that were falling earlier for them in the game weren't falling as easily, and they just weren't as efficient offensively."

Point guard Kyle Hoffman had his best offensive output of the season by scoring 18 points, and he capped the night off with a 10-assist double-double.

"With the way Mitch (Neterer) and Evan (Hine) have played this year, (Kyle) is a facilitator," Tom Hoffman said. "He's done a really good job of becoming a true point guard."

Cameron Keck matched Hoffman’s 18 points, and Neterer also contributed 17 points on four 3-pointers.

Big turnaround

Just two weeks after falling to Everett in double overtime, Southern Fulton avenged the defeat with a 62-49 take down of the Warriors.

Dylan Gordon led the way with a double-double. He went 13-for-16 from the line and finished with 31 points and 12 rebounds. Carl Potter added 10 points, and Branden Lynch notched five points and 12 boards.

"We did a very nice job on the offensive and defensive rebounds (36 total rebounds)," SF coach Kent Hendershot said. "Country (Lynch) had a couple of really good boards and was really a force underneath. Dylan was Dylan. We had a big advantage underneath, and we needed to take advantage."
