Fannett-Metal Loses on the Road to Northern Bedford 69-57

The Tigers(0-2) travelled to Loysburg on Wednesday evening and dropped a 69-57 ICC match up to Northern Bedford.  NBC came out shooting strong behind the arc and converted some early turnovers into easy points to take a 20-9 lead after the first quarter of play.  The rest of the game would be a different story as the young Tigers played even with the veteran Panthers through the last three quarters of play. “We dug a big hole early and spent the rest of the game trying to catch up.  Turnovers really hurt us tonight, but we put forth a tremendous effort and we refused to quit”, Coffman said.

The Tigers put four players in double figures led by Evan Wingert with 15 points and 5 rebounds.  Broc Hostler added 13 points and 5 steals, Drew Goshorn had 12 points and 4 steals, and Landon Arnold added 11 points.  Riley Martin chipped in 6 points to go with 9 rebounds.  Jake Coffman and Daxton Detweiler each had a pair of steals.  Coffman added 3 rebounds.  The Tigers had 17 steals in the game.  NBC was led by Eli Cherry and Cullen Lloyd with 18 points.  Jestin Fernandez added 15 points.   NBC out rebounded the Tigers 30-23.

The Tigers return to action on Friday night when they host the Titans of Tussey Mountain.
