Mercersburg’s boys’ varsity basketball team won its fourth-straight contest December 17 when the Blue Storm made the short trip to Hagerstown, MD, to defeat host Broadfording Christian Academy, 84-54.

The Storm (4-3) extended its 21-19 lead after the first quarter to a 48-29 edge at intermission. Jack Yeager ’20 led the way with 22 points, followed by Quintin Metcalf ’20 with 16 points and Patrick Di Tullio ’20 with 12 points.

“We didn’t come out with the energy and effort that we need to start the game, but found it and will use it to grow from after this one,” Mercersburg head coach Sean Crocker said. 

Mercersburg travels to the George School Thursday, December 19, for a 6 p.m. game in Newtown, PA, followed by games Friday, December 20, and Saturday, December 21, in the Springside Chestnut Hill Showcase (Philadelphia) to close out 2019.
