Carson Myers knocked down six 3-pointers, finished with 22 points and led Boiling Springs to a 45-41 victory over Mid-Penn Colonial contender Shippensburg on Friday night.
Myers' career night propels the Bubblers (9-4, 6-2) into a tie with the Greyhounds and two games behind Greencastle-Antrim (12-2, 7-0) in the division race.
He had at least one 3 in each quarter and finished 4-of-5 from the free-throw line to lead the team.
"He was like an assassin, man," Bubblers coach Pat Dieter said in a phone call. "Every time we needed a bucket, he hit one."
Myers went one-on-one with Carter Van Scyoc, who finished with 22 points as well. But it was hard-earned. The Bubblers held a 24-17 lead at the half.
Dylan LaNoue added nine points, while Michael Wagner and Grayson Hacker impressed Dieter.
"We’ve been preaching all along, we still control our own destiny," Dieter said.
