Two undefeated teams in Lancaster-Lebanon League play finally met Monday night in the Penn Manor gymnasium and the Comets’ two-game winning streak was snapped.
Although any sporting event between Hempfield and Penn Manor is considered to be a supreme rivalry, this game consisted of more than a rivalry as both teams carried a chip on their shoulders.
Both teams wanted to keep their perfect LL record.
The Penn Manor fans were ready or even maybe more ready than the Comet players as they started out the game on a 13-4 streak.
But the Comets couldnt seem to put their game together as they trailed in the game from the tip-off.
The anxious Penn Manor fans hoped for a different first quarter than the 17-6 deficit they faced against the strong Black Knights.
The game continued to stay in Hempfield’s hands throughout the game, but the Comet’s never once gave up as they kept trading baskets along with chants from student sections.
The game ended with a score of 54-49.
This isn’t the last time Penn Manor will go up against Hempfield. They will have another opportunity to avenge their loss to the Black Knights.
