The Little Dutchmen and Cedars each earned wins during L-L boys basketball play Wednesday


There's nothing like a hard-earned first.

The Annville-Cleona boys basketball team collected its first league win of the year by topping Donegal, 58-53, Wednesday on the road. Four different Little Dutchmen scored in double figures, led Noah Myers and Ryan Mathews' dozen points apiece. Cameron Hoch notched 11 and Julian DeReyes-Kapp pocketed 10 during the back-and-forth showdown.

The Indians' Ethan Hess led his group with 11 points, buoyed by a pair of 3-pointers. Annville-Cleona (2-4, 1-3 Lancaster-Lebanon) will next travel to Lebanon Catholic on Friday.

Also in Wednesday's action:

Lebanon 75, Warwick 46: The Cedars took down their third Section One opponent in a row, dropping the Warriors handily on the road. Eleven different players scored for Lebanon (4-1, 3-0), which yielded only 14 points before the half. Cedars senior Matty Lopez posted a team-high 13 points.

Lancaster Mennonite 75, Northern Lebanon 49: After a strong start to league play, the Vikings (4-2, 2-1) suffered their first L-L defeat of the season on their home court. The Blazers dominated most of play, dropping at least 20 points in every quarter but the third. Northern Lebanon's Isaac Bicher paced his team with 24 points.

Lampeter-Strasburg 82, Lebanon Catholic 40: A slow start doomed the Beavers at home, as they fell 1-4 overall and 0-3 in L-L competition. The Pioneers connected on eight 3-pointers and were captained by Connor Brown's 15 points. Lebanon Catholic scored 28 of its total points post-intermission.
