BOYS HOOPS: Dragons, Knights lose region road games

EDINBORO-Warren fell to 8-8 overall and 3-6 in Region 6 with a 65-48 road loss to General McLane Tuesday night.

McLane (12-6, 7-3) outscored the Dragons 38-16 in the second and third quarters before Warren closed the gap in the fourth, but it was too little too late.

“We played a decent first quarter then McLane broke it open in the second and third,” said Warren coach Jeff Berdine. “We tried to take the three away tonight and they did a good job getting the ball inside. (Ryan) Reagan had 10 and (Brett) Kulka had six in the first half. They really set the tone for the rest of the game.”

The Dragons were led by Tanner Stanz and Collin Fantaskey, who scored 10 and nine points, respectively. Jacoby Passmore and Max Gross each had five rebounds.

Warren will look to get back in the win column at Erie East on Thursday.

The Dragons were defeated in overtime of the junior varsity game, 61-54. Devin Nowacki scored 17 points, Evan Suppa had 12, and Jason Waterfield added 10.

Cochranton 66, Eisenhower 39

COCHRANTON-Eisenhower was defeated by Cochranton, 66-39, Tuesday night at Cochranton High School.

“We got into a hole early. We missed a couple easy layups and they got up on us,” said Ike coach Dave Allenson. “We played pretty even in the second quarter then just went flat in the third. I don’t want to take anything away from (Cochranton). They’re a very good team and they shot lights out.”

Casey Vincent and Jarrett Johnson each scored nine points for Eisenhower in the loss.

The Knights will have a chance to take back a region game on Saturday, when they host county-rival Youngsville.
