Forbes Road 49 Belleville Mennonite 34

The Cardinals were led by Shane Schepis with 11 points, Wyatt McGowan added 10 points and Matt Clippinger chipped in 9 points in the win. Cardinals Coach Tyler Gelvin commented, “We started out sluggish this afternoon. I think the kids were exhausted after last night’s game with Fannett Metal. It was ‘Senior Day’ and our Senior Captains Shane Schepis and Wyatt McGowan led us to victory. It was nice win for all six of my seniors today, who know we’ve had a rough year.  They play hard and I was happy we were able to put one in the win column for them.” Forbes Road will travel to Southern Huntingdon on Wednesday.
