Boyertown sinks Southern Lehigh

By Dennis Weller

BOYERTOWN — After scoring the first 11 points of the game, Boyertown appeared ready to run away with Thursday night’s Boyertown Holiday Basketball Tournament boys opening-round contest. Instead, the Bears found themselves down by four points midway through the third quarter after a long stretch of inconsistent offense and some hot shooting from beyond the three-point line by Southern Lehigh.
But Boyertown got its shooting back on track and came up with some big steals and will once again play for the championship after a 53-48 win. Ethan Shalaway scored 12 to lead four double-figure scorers for the Bears (3-4), who will try for their fourth straight title tonight at 7:30 p.m. against Pennridge, a 50-47 winner over Governor Mifflin. Troy Reppert scored 12 for the Spartans (4-3), who will take on Mifflin in the 4:30 p.m. consolation contest.
