January 25, 2018
In an early afternoon tilt due to mid-term exams, Stoga came out aggressively and both teams traded baskets ending the period tied 11-11. Another second quarter swoon found the visiting Pioneers trailing 27-19 at the half.
Zach came out of halftime and took control of the game on both the offensive and defensive ends, forcing steals and hitting 3 point baskets. Stoga doubled their output in the 3rd period and held a narrow 40-36 advantage after 3. The final quarter saw hard work by Charlie inside leading to a number of points in the paint. With Strath Haven forced to foul the final 2 minutes seemed to take an eternity to play with Shane leading the parade to the foul line (7-8 FT). Zach led all scorers for a season high 27 pts. with Shane (10 pts) and Charlie (9 pts 6 reb) contributing their share.
