HS Boys' Hoops: ACCHS Tops Allen, Climbs to 13-0

Though Dat's sisters are Easton High School grads,
they were allowed to play in Central's pep band. 

In a game marred by turnovers and missed free throws, Allentown Central Catholic High School Boys' Basketball improved its record to 13-0 last night with a 48-44 victory over the William Allen Canaries. The Vikes trailed until the 4th quarter in a low-scoring defensive struggle.

Junior Chad Kratzer led the scoring with 11, followed by Jay Vaughan (10), Jordan McChristian (9), Dat Lambert (8), Nick Filchner (5), Kevin Kern (4), and Keyshawn Kelman (3). Though unable to score, Lambert led the team in rebounds while Vaughn scored 8 of his 10 points in the second half.

A team that looked like it could do no wrong against Parkland on Tuesday looked like it could do nothing right just three days later. It had at least 12 turnovers in the first half.

The Vikings were just 8/15 from the free throw line, but the Canaries were worse, hitting only 4 of 18 free throws.

Allen's top scorer was Jasiah Lopez, with 15 Also scoring were Bless Jones (7), Bell Trizek (6), Averee Adderly (6), Roy Ortega (3), Isaiah Frizison (3), Romeo Wright (2), and Gordon Malick (2).

Central will visit Dieruff tonight.
