Boys Basketball 12/7/19 Indians Drop Opener

Shade 59 Southern Fulton 38

Warfordsburg, Pa.- Southern Fulton lost its opening season matchup to Shade-Central City in a non-league game Saturday afternoon at home. The Indians (0-1) were led by Justin Morris with 14 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists. Dylan Melton had 11 points. Gabe Stotler added 5 points and 10 rebounds. Southern Fulton Coach Jeremy Hann commented, “We came out with great energy, lost the momentum in the 2nd quarter for a few minutes, but got it back and felt good at halftime. We then just came out flat in the second half. Shade played solid defense holding us to 10 total points. It’s on me to ensure we play with more intensity in key moments and I just couldn’t get that from the team in the second half this afternoon. 10 second half points will never get it done against a quality team like Shade.” Shade (1-0) was led by Travis Valine with 13 points, 4 rebounds, and 2 assists. The Indians out-rebounded the Panthers 25 to 16. Southern Fulton travels to Everett on Wednesday for a 6:00 start.
