Conestoga Boys Basketball

JV takes 4th straight with narrow 43-41 win over Ridley

Saturday’s game was an intense defensive battle that sparked strong inside play by Conestoga. Mayock and Smith battled an aggressive Ridley team under the boards. While DiMarino, Liedtka, and Ridder kept the offense going with steals and three-pointers. Emory used his length for shutting down shots and drawing fouls.
The heart-pounding second half saw fans on their feet (well, just Mark Smith because his back hurt) and Coach Mass passionately pacing the sidelines. Piccone put nerves to rest with a smooth 3-pointer, strong drives, and a backboard-beating block. DeShetler drew on his football skills to keep the peace underneath. In the end, the boys’ patience and teamwork paid off with a last-minute win.
