Penn Manor’s boys basketball team took on their rivals, McCaskey, on Tuesday night. Many thought it would be a close game but early on it became evident that it would be anything but close.
Penn Manor jumped out to an early lead being led by senior Brian Ramsey. Ramsey had a great game finishing with 24 points.
Landon Alecxih was also a force to be reckoned with scoring 15 points and 10 rebounds.
Once the Comets took the lead, they never looked back.
By halftime, the Comets had a 21 point lead over the Red Tornadoes. The Tornadoes struggled all game to get anything going their way.
While the Tornadoes were having a tough time finding their rhythm, the Comets were in full stride and the scoreboard showed it.
Coming back to the court after half time, the Comets remained hot and by the end of the third quarter they had extended their lead to 38 points.
The game ended much differently than last year’s game with McCaskey, with the Tornadoes winning 91-84. This year’s game, on the other hand, ended with Penn Manor handling McCaskey, 64-35.
Needless to say, McCaskey is looking to prove that this was just a fluke when they come to Millersville for a rematch in 23 days.
The Comets, 4-0 in section, 7-1 overall, now get ready to take on Manheim Township who is tied with them for first place in their section.
The game is set for Friday at Penn Manor at 8pm.
