Roundup: Lebanon routs Penn Manor behind Shaak's 30
Lebanon's Cam Shaak poured in 25 first-half points to lead the Cedars past Penn Manor in Section 1-2 crossover action
Two words: bombs away.
Lebanon's Cam Shaak dropped 30 points Monday, including six 3-pointers, to lead the Cedars in a 74-56 home rout of Penn Manor. Lebanon (3-1, 2-0 Lancaster Lebanon) jumped all over the Comets from the get-go via a 25-9 first quarter, as Shaak hit 25 points by halftime. The Cedars won their second straight, following another victory over a Section One opponent last Friday at Manheim Township.
Allan Escoto added 18 points for Lebanon, which connected on 26 of 36 free throws.
Also in Monday's action:
Cedar Crest 55, Ephrata 49: The Falcons reached 3-0 on the young season, but not without a scare as the hosting Mounts pulled off a 20-point final quarter during a near comeback. Evan Horn posted 25 points to lead Cedar Crest, while Ephrata's Matt McGillan compiled 32. Falcons senior Iziah Trimble connected four times from downtown, best of anyone on the floor, helping his team to outbursts in the second and third quarter.
Elco 80, Columbia 59: Raiders point guard Mason Bossert nearly handled the Crimson all by himself, notching a season-best 33 points on the road. Bossert drained 10 field goals and nine free throws, while Elco (5-0, 2-0) failed to score fewer than 17 in a single quarter. Seniors Caleb Buchmoyer and Colton Lawrence added 20 and 14 points, respectively.
