Everett 57 Forbes Road 43

Waterfall, Pa. – Forbes Road (2-20-14 ICC) hosted Everett in their final game of the season and fell to the Warriors 57 to 43. Caleb Hershey led the Cardinals with 15 points, Wyatt McGowan added 9 points, Jonas Shaneman chipped in 8 points and Holden Lupey added 7 points. Cardinal Coach Tyler Gelvin said, “Caleb Hershey’s hot shooting from Monday night carried over into the first half of this game as we took a 29-27 lead into the half.  We came out with some fire tonight even though the boys knew it was the final game of this season.  Hershey’s shooting really opened things up for us and McGowan and Lupey took advantage inside.  The second half we turned the ball over and Everett took advantage of our mistakes converting with easy looks and in the end that was the difference in the game.  We finished (2-20) on the year, but the boys battled hard all year long and I couldn’t be more proud of them.  Being such a small school our number of players vary a lot from year to year and graduating 6 seniors is never easy, but we have a good group of underclassmen who are looking to jump in and make a splash.  We need to have strong offseason workouts and continue to push ourselves to get better.”
