Mechanicsburg pulled off a bit of a stunner, beating Susquehanna Twp. on the road 65-60. The rebuilding Wildcats (5-14, 3-9 Keystone), got a team-high 20 poitns from Tyler Gelnett, plus 15 from Caleb Everett and 11 from Ty Deiter. The trio accounted for all seven of the team's 3-pointers against the Indians (11-8, 8-4), who are not out of the division title hunt.
On the flipside of Friday night's upsets was Boiling Springs, which suffered a 53-46 setback against a James Buchanan side that did not have a Mid-Penn Colonial win before the game. The Rockets got 17 from Justin Hissong, while the Bubblers countered with 18 from Dylan LaNoue. Boiling Springs (10-6, 6-4) is still very much in the District 3 Class 4A playoff picture but is now out of the division title chase.
Carlisle stayed alive in the District 3 Class 6A race, picking up a much-needed 57-50 win at CD East. Gavyn Barnes led with 12 points, while Howie Rankine and Eveyon Davis each had 10. Ki Barnes was held scoreless for the second time this year and now has 14 points in his last three games.
Trinity rolled over West Perry 55-32, getting 13 points from Kalen Veres, 11 from Sean Good and 10 each from Patrick Walker and Jack Bucher. Josh Rudy's 12 led the Mustangs.
Trevor Moyer's 20 points wasn't enough in Big Spring's 73-50 loss at Greencastle-Antrim. The Blue Devils' win clinched at least a share of the Mid-Penn Colonial. G-A (14-2, 9-0) leads Shippensburg (12-4, 7-3); the two teams square off Tuesday.
State College locked up the Mid-Penn Commonwealth with a 71-47 clinic over visiting State College. Three players cracked double figures for the Little Lions, while the Eagles were led by Max Reznitchenko's 11 points. Unbeaten SC (16-0, 12-0) maintains a three-game lead over Harrisburg (13-6, 9-3) with two games left to play.
Lower Dauphin beat Cedar Cliff 62-59, also knocking the Colts (11-7, 8-4) out of the Keystone race. Cedar Cliff got a game-high 26 from Gerald Jarmon III, who connected four times from distance.
