Varsity outlasts Academy Park for 53-44 road win

On a rare Monday night game, Stoga traveled down to Academy Park HS and came away with an important non-league 53-44 victory. It was a fast-paced first quarter with Shane contributing to 8 of the team’s 13 points. A lid went on the basket for Stoga in the 2nd period as the team scored only 2 pts on 2 free throws by Mike and went into halftime trailing 20-15.
The team came out of the locker room with a renewed sense of urgency and got it going in the third to trail 32-33. The final period saw Charlie (10 pts) and Zach exert their leadership and take control with steals and boards. Academy Park was forced to foul in the final minutes helping to seal the win.
