‘Boro led 16-15 after a low-scoring first half, but then its pressure defense helped create numerous turnovers and the Indians outscored G-A 15-4 in the third to take a 31-19 advantage.

The Blue Devils (5-3, 4-3 MPC) scored 6 of the first 8 points in the fourth quarter to trim the deficit to 8 points at 33-25, but Connor Jacobs hit a layup and Waynesboro (6-3, 4-3 MPC) built its lead back up.

“We made too many turnovers to get behind, and then we tried to foul to get back and they made their free throws,” Greencastle coach Rick Lewis said.

In the fourth period, ‘Boro hit 14 of 18 foul shots — 5 of 6 each for Bryce Shaffer and Cameron Mendoza-Gaskill, and 4 of 6 for Jacobs. Shaffer scored 14 points to lead the Indians, Jacobs added 9 and Ryan Shaffer had 8.

For the Blue Devils, Thomas Lewis totaled 14 points, including four 3-pointers, and Zach Cole scored 13.
