CVCS 77 Fannett Metal 72

Willow Hill, Pa. – CVCS (6-1) opened with an 18-12 lead after the 1st quarter.  The Tigers (1-6) took the lead at one point in the second quarter, but couldn’t sustain it as the Blazers went into half-time with a 36-32 lead. The Tigers cut the lead to 54-51 at the end of the third quarter.  The 4th quarter saw a couple lead changes before CVCS nailed back to back treys late in the fourth quarter to pull ahead for good.  Fannett Metal Coach Paul Coffman commented, “Those two three’s by Blaine Minnier were big shots and ultimately back breakers at that point in the game.  It was another very competitive game for us and we left all we had out on the court tonight.  I need to do a better job at the end of games to help our team close them out.”

The Blazers put three players in double figures led by freshman Nollin Egolf with 31 points.  Egolf played really well for them tonight hitting several big shots throughout the game.  Caleb Eckert had 20 points and Blaine Minnier had 17 points including eleven in the fourth quarter.  Coffman said, “We figured their size would present a challenge for us inside, but we didn’t count on them being 9 for 17 from behind the arc.” The Blazers were 14 for 24 from the free throw line, while the Tigers were 9 for 13.  

For the Tigers, sophomore Wyatt Appleby had his biggest game of the year with 22 points and 6 rebounds.  Appleby had five treys in the game.  Hunter Hill had 21 points, 5 rebounds and 3 steals.  Darston Warren had a double double with 11 points and 11 rebounds.  Colton Friese had 8 points and 6 rebounds.  Other scorers were Tanner Seibert with 5 points, Luke Coffman with 3 points and 7 assists, and Ayden Warren with 2 points.
