Boys Volleyball Outlasts Ephrata

The Penn Manor Boys Volleyball team took down Ephrata in Tuesday night’s section one match-up.

It was hard to predict how the Comets would match up with the much bigger Ephrata team. Ephrata senior, David Witmer, leads the LL League in solo blocks with 48, and he had a match-high 6 last night.

Carrying a stat line of 25 digs for the Comet boys was sophmore Mark Dano, who was later awarded the game ball by head coach Chris Telesco.

Nearly halfway through the second game of the match, Coach Telesco pulled junior outside hitter Dylan Weber out of the game and the team, for a while, looked lost. It wasn’t until the end of that game that the boys reacted to the change. Down 20-23 in the second game, the Comets rallied back to take the game 25-23.

Sophomore Mark Dano helped provide defense support and left the match with 25 digs and the game ball.

The Comet boys gained momentum with this win, and leveled the playing field in the section, as Penn Manor, Ephrata, and Warwick are all tied for second in section 1 with a record of 4-2.

Hopefully for the Comets this momentum will carry them through the next couple of games as Telesco will be in Hawaii with the chorus for the next few days.
