Long, Ryan help Springfield rally in opener >> It was all about the Kyles for Springfield Friday night, as the Cougars launched a major comeback to top Unionville, 45-36, at the Unionville Tipoff Tournament.
Springfield outscored the hosts, 24-5 in the fourth quarter. Kyle Long had 12 points and five assists. Kyle Ryan scored a team-high 13 points. Kyle Sullivan provided a clutch steal late to lead the Cougars into the title game.
At the Fred Pickett Classic:
Penn Wood 61, Math, Civics & Science 60 >> Vincent Smalls scored a game-high 15 points, and Jordan Johnson and Kairi Jones added 10 points apiece as the Patriots rallied late to win.
Sanford 59, Chester 57 >> Stanley Davis scored a team-high 13 points and Marquis Collins added 12 as one of 10 scorers for the Clippers, but poor free-throw shooting down the stretch led the Chester squandering a seven-point lead entering the fourth quarter.
