Junior High boys basketball proves to have the right stuff in 42-36 victory over Manheim Central

On Friday, January 4, the ninth grade Lampeter-Strasburg Boys Basketball team played against Manheim Central. The Pioneers won the tip-off and started off strong on an 8-0 run but the lack of defense gave Central the edge to come back and make it 8-8.
By the end of the quarter, L-S had the lead 16-12. As the game went on in the second quarter both teams went back and forth with scoring and great defense. At halftime, L-S had the lead with a score of 22-20. Central managed to bring the deficit to two points. 

L-S came out of the locker room strong to keep the lead at 34-30 at the end of the third quarter. If Central wanted any chance at winning the game they would need to tighten up on defense to get some stops for them to be able to score on offense. 

With the fourth quarter winding down both teams were fighting hard but L-S found themselves getting the edge over Central with better defense, smart passing on offense, and being able to hit their free throws late in the game when they mattered the most. L-S won with a score of 42-36.
