Thursday night’s boys basketball game at Cedar Crest High School was for a spot in states for either Daniel Boone or Penn Manor.
Boone’s senior guard, Tyler Brooks, was shut down scoring only four points all night. His season average is 18.3 points which is second in the Berks conference.
Penn Manor’s Patrick Welsh scored seven first half points leading the Comets to a 13-point lead, late in the second quarter.
Boone ended the half with an eight-point run to cut the deficit within five at half.
The Blazers came within two points of Penn Manor near the end of the third quarter but couldn’t capitalize.
Welsh led all Comet scorers with 16 points. Leron Lee added 14 points and Sam Cornell contributed 11 points.
The Comets will face off against district one champion Penn Wood, Saturday 3:30PM at Norristown high school.
