BOYS HOOPS: Eagles drop region contest

The Youngsville boys dropped to 0-7 on the year after a 75-44 loss to Conneaut Saturday afternoon at Youngsville High School.

“Definitely playing back-to-back Friday night and Saturday afternoon hurt us today,” said Youngsville coach Jim Kesterholt.

“Fourth quarter we just ran out of gas. We stayed with them, we had it 10, 11 points most of the game. I’m really proud of my guys for that. They worked their butts off. I can’t any more out of them than that. The score definitely is not reflective of the effort that they gave,” Kesterholt said.

Collin Lehnen had a team-high 19 points and James Frazier added nine points in the loss.

Conneaut also won the JV game, beating Youngsville 52-22.
