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.
