Manheim Central outduels the Vikings in overtime
Manheim Central senior guard Evan Stauffer led all scorers with 22 points and the Barons outlasted Northern Lebanon 55-54 in overtime in a Section Three boys basketball game in Manheim on Tuesday night.
Senior Jacoby Brumbach also reached double figures with 11 points, as the Central boys avenged a 65-45 loss to the Vikings on Dec. 21 in Fredericksburg. With its third straight win, the Barons improved to 7-5 in Section Three (11-5 overall). It also marked Central’s fifth win in their last six games, enabling them to pull within one game of both Norlebco (8-4 league) and Lampeter-Strasburg (8-4 league), which lost 49-42 to Donegal.
In a hard-fought battle from the start, the Barons led by six at the end of the first quarter and then carried a 28-25 lead into the half.
But Norlebco, which entered the game in a second-place tie with Lampeter-Strasburg, got a team-high 17 points from Pat Stevens and outscored Central 14-9 in the third to grab a two-point advantage going to the final stanza. There, the Central boys were able to pull even at the end of regulation, 48-48. Then, despite finishing the game shooting just 5-of-15 from the foul line, the Barons outscored Norlebco 7-6 in the OT period to escape with the win.
Stauffer finished with three of the Barons’ six three-pointers. Sam Light and Isaac Ray added 15 and 11 points, respectively, in the losing cause for the Vikings.
In other action last Friday night, Manheim Central broke open a close game against Lebanon Catholic with a 20-11 fourth-quarter burst, leading them to a 58-47 victory in a Section Three-Four crossover in Lebanon.
Matt Walsh and Stauffer finished with 24 and 14 points, respectively, to help the Barons earn the victory.
Junior Anthony Pletz led Lebanon Catholic with 13 points and junior Alex Frattaroli chipped in with 12 points in the losing cause. More BARONS, page B-4
