In a classic “old school” style of basketball the Penncrest Lions and Haverford Fords fought a close battle with no team leading by more than 5 points the entire night through four quarters and two overtimes. Penncrest finally came out on top 51-49.
Neither team had great success shooting the ball all night. Haverford shot only 39% from the field while Penncrest had an even harder time completing only 29% of their shots.
Defense was tenacious for both teams preventing easy lay-ups and fade shots. Neither team found a game rhythm all night long and it showed in unbalanced shooting attempts from all over the court.
However, it was from the line on free throws that the Fords struggled and gave the Lions the win. Haverford made only 8 free throws out of 20 attempts while Penncrest managed to make 24 out of 34. All 9 Penncrest points in the final O.T. were free throws.
Hunter Kraiza led the Fords with 13 points followed by John Seidman with 9 points. Sean Reynolds led with 8 rebounds.
The Lion’s point leader was Marquis Tomlin with 15 followed by Ben Stanton with 12. Denzel Boyer led on defense with 8 rebounds.
