Penn Manor Boys Basketball Team Defeats E-Town at Home

The Comets boys basketball team took to the court looking for a win, and finished Elizabethtown off with a convincing defeat.

Thursday night was a big game for the team. It was their first home game, and they needed a win to prove that they can still be effective even with five of last year’s seniors gone.

Seniors Dan Elliot, Brian Ramsey and Jaq Presbery, and Juniors Landon Alecxih and Marc Summy are this year’s starters.

Early on, the Comets took advantage of their size in the low post, snagging board after board, not to mention creating 15 turnovers.

Pressure on defense and some good offensive strategy led the Comets to a 63-49 win over the Bears.

“We had some bigger bodies, and Landon did a fabulous job for us,” said Comets Coach Charlie Detz in an article on Lancasteronline.

The hard work from Alecxih gave him a, game high, 21 points along with 7 rebounds. Presbery hit a pivotal three in the third quarter to get the Comets rolling.
And they didn’t stop anytime after that.
Issac Newton’s second law then came into play as the Comets weren’t acted upon by an outside force for the rest of the game. They went on an unanswered 11 point run.
Presbery finished with 8 points.
Elliot was a defensive force, gaining 8 rebounds and 2 blocks. As Elliot was swatting shots, Ramsey had a key steal late in the game for a fast break with a lay up finished by Presbery.
