Everett 57 Fannett Metal 35

Fannett-Metal (8-7, 8-5 SHL, 6-5 ICC) hosted Everett and fell to their league foe by a score of 57-35.  A slow start allowed Everett to build a 15-2 first quarter lead.  However, this did not deter the Tigers, as they outscored the Warriors in the second quarter and had trimmed the margin to 29-27 mid way through the 3rd quarter.  Some defensive adjustments by Everett stymied the Tigers and allowed them to secure the victory from there.  The Tigers were lead in scoring by Coffman 13, Hoffmann 8, Johns 4, M Ritchey 4, Hartman 3, and K Ritchey 3. Fannett Metal will host Mercersburg Academy tonight, January 30.
