Mercersburg’s boys’ varsity basketball team took care of business in the first contest of its three-game road trip to the greater Philadelphia area with a 68-54 win over the host George School December 19 in Newtown, PA. It was the Blue Storm’s fifth straight win.

AJ Gray '20 led the Storm with 17 points, Kaylen Oweh '20 scored 15 points, and Patrick Di Tullio '20 added 10 points.

Against the scrappy Cougars, Mercersburg (5-3) initially struggled to get control of the game, but used a larger lineup to keep the hosts at bay. The Storm led essentially from the opening tip, but George made a number of runs to cut double-digit leads to single digits.

Di Tullio hit a pair of crucial three-pointers in the final four minutes to help put the game out of reach.

Mercersburg plays Solebury School Friday, December 20, at 5 p.m. in the Devils Holiday Classic at Springside Chestnut Hill Academy in Philadelphia.
