Comets Will Try to Calm the Tornadoes

By Ryan Mays-

One game at a time.

The Penn Manor Girls basketball team (3-4) takes on J.P. McCaskey (1-5) Tuesday at 8:00 pm. The game is at home and the “up-and-down” Comets are looking to create a winning streak.

The Comets are coming off  a pretty big win against the Hershey Trojans with a record of (5-2) before the game. Indeed, this was a non-league game, but a 41- over 32-point victory is nothing to sneeze at.

Even though some are predicting a tight game and a win by McCaskey, the Comets hope their better record and their undefeated home court advantage pulls off a victory.

The Tornadoes are coming off of a 59-29 loss to Ephrata, a team Penn Manor beat by two points before Christmas.

It sounds like Penn Manor has an advantage.

When looking at the stats, the Penn Manor girls have 281 points-for( the Comets scored) and 285 points-against(the opponent scored). On the other end, McCaskey only scored 263 points-for and 349 points-against. This is 18 points-for and 64 points-against better in the Comets favor.
