Four players score all of Indians’ points in victory

MIFFLINTOWN — Juniata didn’t get a lot of offensive contributors, but it didn’t need them in a 46-31 win over Line Mountain in a Tri-Valley League boys basketball game Friday night.

The Indians got contributions from less players than there were on the court at a single time with Ben Lauver leading the pack.

Lauver finished with 20 points while Bryson Clark scored 13. Bryce Leonard and Nate Bodley were the other contributors offensively.

“It was clicking for them,” Juniata coach Al Ream said. “They all got open looks and the ball found its way to them and they were able to execute. We also played very well defensively, especially in the fourth quarter, holding them to just four points.”

Lauver had eight blocks, Jamie Bailer had four assists and Leonard had five steals in the contest.

Juniata (7-4) hosts Lancaster Country Day Tuesday.

Boys basketball

Harrisburg Academy 50, Belleville Mennonite 36

BELLEVILLE — It wasn’t the result Belleville Mennonite coach John Pannizzo wanted to see for the Thunder, falling to Harrisburg Academy, 50-36, in non-league boys basketball, but he has seen the team getting better.

“Our kids are starting to move with and without the ball better and the passing has been better,” he said. “The overall module of the game is getting better.”

The Thunder pulled to within three points in the third quarter, but that’s when Harrisburg Academy’s height advantage took over the game.

“We went on a great run in the second half, but their height was too much for the kids,” Pannizzo said. “The kids were able to take advantage of that though and be aggressive with the basketball.”

Durrell Yoder finished with a team-high 14 points for the Thunder while Frankie Pannizzo scored nine and David Yoder had seven, respectively.

Belleville Mennonite (0-12) travels to Northumberland Christian Monday.

Mifflin County 60, Chambersburg 38

CHAMBERSBURG — Mifflin County got a 60-38 win over Mid-Penn foe Chambersburg in girls basketball but coach Roger Herto says there is a lot of room for improvement.

“We needed to come down and get a win, but we certainly didn’t bring our A-game,” he said. “What we brought tonight was more of a C- or D-game.

“As we get closer to the playoffs, we need to bring our to Es, energy and effort and we didn’t do that tonight. We won simply because we were better than this team, but this was not one of our better performances.”

Eleana Eckley drained six 3-pointers and went a perfect 7-for-7 at the free-throw line to lead the Huskies with 25 points.

Mifflin County (12-2, 6-2) travels to Carlisle Tuesday.
