Raiders best Gremlins, 60-47

BROOKVILLE — The Brookville Raiders shot a season-best 52 percent from the field and led from start to finish in a 60-47 win over visiting Karns City in a non-league game Wednesday night.

Nate Shirts was the leading scorer for the Raiders (3-7), who put three in double figures on a night when it made 24 of 46 shots from the field and only took four 3-point shots. He scored 19 points with seven rebounds and three blocked shots. Tate Canavan scored 16 points and Jack Huggins, who nailed both threes at key moments, finished with 11 points.

The sharp shooting and balanced scoring offset a big night from Gremlins senior guard Tyler Kepple, who scored 29 points. The team’s top scorer going into the game scored 11 points in the fourth quarter trying to rally his team and wound up 8-of-21 from the floor and 9-of-10 from the foul line. However, the rest of the team shot a lowly 6-of-33 from the field.

The team’s second-leading scorer, 6-foot-3 junior Logan Moroney (12.7 ppg.), did not play.

The Raiders led by as many as 15 points in the first half and 14 points in the third quarter, but the Gremlins hung around. Huggins nailed a three to beat the buzzer at the end of the third to push the lead back to 13 at 46-33.

The Gremlins got as close as four points at 60-56 with two minutes left in the game, but scored one point the rest of the way. Huggins put the Raiders up 54-46 to seal the game with 58 seconds remaining. If that didn’t secure things, Tate Canavan’s four free throws — two of them after a technical foul was called on Gremlins head coach Chris Bellis — with 49.6 seconds did.
