BOYERTOWN — Sometimes it’s hard to keep digging in on defense when the shots aren’t going in at the other end of the court. But that’s what Spring-Ford did in the second half of Saturday night’s Pioneer Athletic Conference game at Boyertown.
The Rams held the hosts to just four points in the third quarter and their offense came alive as they broke the game open and went on to a much-needed 53-33 Liberty Division win. Nick Stanek scored 15, Justin DeLuzio 13 and Drew Kakareka 11 for Spring-Ford (7-4, 12-6 overall), which pulled to within a half-game of second-place Perkiomen Valley.
Ryan Corcoran scored 13 for the Bears (4-7, 5-14), who were eliminated from playoff contention with the loss.
