BOYERTOWN — Basketball teams talk about protecting their home court, and none have done it better than the Boyertown girls in their own Holiday Tournament. The Bears ran their string of championships to four in a row Friday night as they shot well and created offense with their aggressive defense in a 60-39 win over Bangor.
Boyertown (7-2) forced 15 Slater turnovers in the first half and Kaitlyn Eisenhard scored 16 points in the second half to finish with a game-high 25. Morgan McCollian topped Bangor (5-2) with 14 points and 10 rebounds, eight of them on the offensive board.
“It feels great to win,” Eisenhard said concerning another home tournament two-game sweep. “Every year since I’ve been a freshman. We always protect our home court.”
